Here is a picture of our three musicians. Tyler is playing the Tenor Saxophone in the Burton Middle School Band and Jazz Band. Brae is going to begin learning to play the trumpet in school. Yesterday Ty and Brae were practicing their instruments and sweet little Cason came out with his "parade trumpet" so he could play with his brothers. The noise was a little unbearable to say the least, but it was cute to watch.
Wonderful Papa had been telling the boys that he had a boat up in the garage rafters. He got it down and blew it up for the boys. They have been in the boat in the pool non-stop for the last 2 days. It was definately a hit! Thank you Papa!
Today I came home from work to find Clifford the Big Red Dog in my living room. I just wanted to eat him:) Now he is chasing around a little rubber ball in the living room panting like a dog. I hope we can find Cason again soon!
Another school year has begun. Tyler had a great first day of 8th Grade. It is just amazing how fast time goes by and what a fun young man he is turning into. Braeden began 4th grade and just loves his teacher Mrs. Stinson. It is exciting to see him be so enthusiastic about going to school. Cason started Kindergarten and just loves everything about it. He loves his "pretty teacher", he loves is new friend Garrin who has "long girl hair". (I told him that wasn't nice to say and his reply was, "Well mom, he does have long girl hair but he's not a girl".) He is so excited and eager to learn too. We are truly blessed. I couldn't wait to get home to hear about the days my boys had had. Me and my handsome boys! The boys tolerating another picture session.
Well...First day done, 179 to go! My first day went well. I always forget from year to year how tiring it is. I wore high heels today and by noon, I was barefoot in my classroom. I think I will take a pair of flip flops to wear tomorrow:) Here is a picture of my new students. Seem like sweet kids, just a little chatty.
Cason got to go to school today to meet his new teacher Mrs. Davis. She had them go on a scavenger hunt in the classroom to find hidden monkeys, he found his desk, wrote his name, and even got a present from his teacher. He is so excited about going to Kindergarten and we are so blessed to have him with Mrs. Davis. As we were leaving, Cason ran up to her and gave her a big hug. He told me after we left that he loves his pretty teacher. Cason and Mrs. Davis Cason sitting like a big Kindergartener at his desk!

Brae decided this year that he would wait to have his birthday party until after the pool was built. His cousins came from Utah and so we had a swim party for him at the end of July. Here are a few pictures from his party!
I am so blessed! I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful boys. We live a busy but happy life. It is full of boy stuff....baseball, football, basketball, and scouts. It can't get much better than this.
