We are officially land owners again!! and let me tell you it feels good to be back in the game!! We went and talked to Guy Doty at the beginning of August and he agreed to finance us with a 2% interest rate! We got the best lot in the whole subdivision for $42,540.00

Here we go again, back to the books!! The night before the big first day of school the boys couldn't sleep I think they were all nervous/excited! (especially Dillon) This year Dusty is excited to be in 1st grade because he gets to eat lunch at school!! He was even more excited when he showed up for the first day of school and found out Jesse Evans was in his class!! Degan is in 3rd grade this year! He's not as excited for school, he loves getting new stuff to wear to school!! Dillon had the biggest change of all the kids, going into the 6th grade. He is officially a middle schooler this year and switched from a buccaneer to a mustang!! I hope it's a great year for all my boys!!
P.S. We took Dillon out for ice cream before school started to have a chat about what was expected of him for the coming year because 5th grade was such a nightmare!!

Our original plan was to drive the Oregon coast but after a little research we decided we didn't have enough time to see all that we wanted to see so we shortened it a bit and made stops in Reno, Fort Bragg, San Francisco, & San Lois Obisbo!! We really had SO MUCH FUN!! At first the thought of spending that much time in a van with 7 kids didn't sound like much of a "vacation" but the kids truly had the time of their lives and saw some pretty amazing stuff. Don't get me wrong we had a few moments where we second guessed this great idea but all in all I would do it again in a heartbeat!!

P.S. There was a stand off at the Logandale/Overton exit with some crazy person who robbed a bank in St. George. It took Genna over an hour to get home, the rest of us stayed in Mesquite and went to DQ for dessert & laughed some more!!

7-22-2014 Dusty's other tiny tooth was wiggly and he kept bugging Darin every 10 minutes (no joke) to pull it out! We made a trip to St. George and he got a lieu in his kids meal and he asked if he could pull his tooth out with it! Than he found a piece of string in the car and asked if he could pull his tooth out with that! We convinced him to wait until we got home and we'd do the floss thing again! To his disappointment the floss trick was not working so he gave his Dad permission to pull it out with some needle nose pliers!! This kid is fearless or crazy!! either way we love hime!!
I'm not sure how it happened it seems like just yesterday I was bringing my baby boy home from the hospital and now he's 2.5 and bosses everyone around! He loves to watch TV his favorite shows are Dino Dan and Wild Kratt's he will sit on the couch with his eyes glued to the screen as long as one of those shows is playing! Another favorite thing is i-touches he's not picky he'll take whatever i-touch is laying around and find something he wants to play and take 100 selfies of his foot or the top of his head!! He is a busy child and loves doing whatever his brothers are doing! He still sleeps with me and he will yell at the boys to get out of his bed or to get out of his spot, which is really daddy's spot but whatever he's the baby he rules the house!! I love having a buddy, so glad he decided to sneak in and join the family he's everybody's favorite!!

We told the kids this year they could go to the zoo or sea world on the free day but once we got there they didn't want to leave their cousins so they opted to just hang out and do whatever everyone else was doing!! - SCORE AGAIN!! We took all the kids to see How to train your dragon 2, participated in all the fun things the KOA has to offer and of course played at the beach!! I enjoy getting out of the heat and just hanging out with the family! A highlight for Darin is going to Hodad's for a burger and Luigi's for some yummy pizza! Dillon likes that he's old enough to sleep in his own tent with Gage & Degan! Degan loved hanging out with his cousins at the KOA and boogie boarding for the first time at the beach! Dustin's favorite part of the trip was swimming at the pool and eating popsicles! Daxton's favorite thing had to be riding his little bike! He rode it all day long and I must say he got really good he was picking up his feet and coasting down the little hills!! The real story of our trip was on the way home: Things were going on along nicely, we stopped & ate at Denny's and headed back out on the road only to get in a traffic jam, so Darin rerouted the GPS and off we went on some exit thinking we were going to by pass all the traffic and found a cool little town to go walk around and check out some fun little shops, than after we stopped for gas we checked the GPS only to find out we were heading for Arizona and had gone way out of our way!! so again we rerouted the GPS to take us home and it took us on some old run down two lane highways, past some old railroad depot, we were even on "Route 66" for a short time!! It's a good thing we weren't in a hurry to get home because it took us forever to get home but we saw some pretty cool things!!

6-3-2014 Today was water day, I volunteered to help out with Dusty's class so I missed the other kids but they said it was lame so I guess I didn't miss much! The kindergarteners went over to the fairgrounds to play on a big blow up slide and fun water games! It was a success all the kids LOVED it and as a bonus Scarlet was in charge of getting the big slide so she still had it after school so I headed back over after school was out and let the boys have even more fun. It got a little crazy, but what do you expect with a bunch of boys?
6-4-2014 As if Dustin graduating from kindergarten wasn't hard enough Dillon had to go and graduate from the fifth grade!! How did this happen? His elementary years went by way to fast! But we are both excited for middle school 5th grade was NOT a good year so we are ready for something new!! Dad told him absolutely no D's or F's on any more of his report cards or he won't be getting him a car when he turns 16!! hopefully that's enough motivation to keep good grades!!
