First Day of School

A couple of weeks ago the girls got to meet their new teachers at their new school. Lydia is now a first grader and Sophie is in third grade.

They were pretty nervous about going to a new school this year but their teachers are so sweet they were all smiles after meet the teacher night.

Last Monday was their first day of school! 

They had a great first day and they love that they get to go to school with our neighbor who is the same age as Lydia.

Summer Activities

We had a nest of baby Desert Finch on our front door this spring/summer. It was fun to see the little birds grow up.

Out of the 3 babies 2 survived. We are not sure what happened to the other. But it was fun since all of us got to see them take their first flight! We walked out our front door and they flew past all of us to their mom and dad in the yard.

We have been enjoying going to library story time with Aunt Sarah, Jackson and Gavin. 

After we head across the street and visit with Grumpa Miller. The kids enjoyed playing cards with him and he even gave Lydia a hard time since she won the game. He claimed she was cheating haha. 

For a couple of weeks in the summer Aunt Kimberly and Aunt Aimee came to visit and the kids were so excited to play with their cousins! We went to the International Wildlife Museum.

They had fun sleepovers and the boys enjoyed hanging out together.

No baby was harmed in the making of this photo no worries,

And William thought pedicure night was so much fun he just had to help Aunt Kim.

We were also able to volunteer at the Tucson Temple open house and we took all of the kids on a tour as well. 

Lydia lost her first tooth! She was so nervous about someone pulling it out but ended up pulling it out all by herself! She lost her second one a couple of weeks later when Sophie accidently hit her with a toy.

Sarah and I did summer movie passes so we got to take the kids to the theater every week. The kids loved it but Gavin and William were a bit a of a handful. We had to wrestle them a bit.

On Fourth of July we went to Grandma and Grandpa Miller's for yummy food, homemade ice cream, and swimming!

And for the last night of summer break we went to Golf and Stuff with Grandma Clayton.

We had such a fun summer!
