Project Life | Weeks 32-34

WEEK 32 | I took Hank to a Foster the People concert at the amazing Red Rocks Amphitheater. The outdoor venue was amazing...can't wait to go back. This was Hank's Father's Day gift.

Taylor and Landon started a tumbling/gymnastics class on Thursday nights. It good strength training for both kids, and I am hoping that Taylor can learn her front and back handsprings to incorporate into her dances. We also tried to go on the water slides at Elitch Garden's but got rained out again.

WEEK 33 | We celebrated Grandpa Vern's 82nd birthday! 

Wrapped up the week celebrating Ryland's 5th birthday. It's so hard to see the baby of the family grow up. I am one blessed Mommy!

WEEK 34 | Back to School - and we were ready. This year is interesting. Taylor (2nd grade), Landon (1st grade), and Ryland (kindergarten) are all in the same classroom with Mrs. Brewster. We were going to hold Ryland back for another year, but their school is not offering Pre-K this year. So since he just turned five a few days ago, we are going to try and see how he does.

This week was also the start of i9 sports for my babies. Taylor and Landon chose soccer so Hank decided to coach their team. Ryland chose T-ball and I was recruited to coach his team. All games and practices are on Sundays after church and works well with our busy schedules.

Project Life | Weeks 27-31

Life has been super busy and I am playing catch up all the time with Project Life and scrapbooking. That's OK with me though. It is something that I always look forward to when I can squeeze it in. It's crazy looking at these photos from summer when in reality, school has started this week and it is beginning to feel a bit like fall. So with that said, WEEK 27 is all about the beach. The kids and I travelled to La Jolla, California to visit my parents. Taylor had a national dance competition in San Diego and La Jolla was only 20 minutes away. It was the perfect vacation and our best memory of the summer.


WEEK 28 | Taking the kids to Sea World for the very first time. I bought two-day passes and the kids, my mom, and I scoured the park from corner to corner. We loved it! Such a great memory.

We stayed with my parents for almost two weeks and visited the USS Midway on one of our days. We also celebrated my mom's birthday on July 11.

WEEK 29 | Camping with Grandma and Grandpa in Prescott, AZ

We were able to meet up with several of our sweet friends from AZ before heading back home to Colorado.

WEEK 30 | Swim lessons and dance choreography commences.

We squeezed in a birthday party, back-to-school shopping, and a Newsboys concert at Elitch Gardens. 


Oh my goodness, my baby girl is growing up! At her ortho evaluation last week, they said she was ready for Phase One of braces to expand her jaw. She was super excited to say the least. I also surprised Taylor with tickets to see "The Sound of Music" live.
