Hyrum doesn't start school until September 7th. I may die a slow death from the question, "When do I go to school?"  In an effort to avert this tragedy, we did make a paper chain to help count the days.

Is the school system ready for the residents of the Sanatorium?

And I posted the last three letters from Elder Denton on his blog just this afternoon.  Click here to read them.  I'm not leaving town for a while now--maybe I won't get so behind on those missionary posts.


  1. Wow summer is ending way too quickly. My kids don't start until the 30th but it will be here in the wink of an eye!

    Cute picture of your kiddo's - they look ready to go!

  2. I have been checking back for this all day! So glad it's up! I hope everyone enjoyed their first day, and that Hyrum doesn't die of anticipation! :)

  3. Sure hope so, because ready or not, here they cooooome...!


    PS. What a vibrant group they make with those big, lively eyes.

  4. What a great idea to post their likes on the first day of school. I might borrow your idea if you don't mind. My kids start school, 8/22 and 8/23. They are going to different places this year.

  5. I find it somewhat amusing that Evie looks the least excited about the first day of school... :)

  6. Ok, that last picture is my all time favorite! LOVE! It's so, SO you guys! Also love the shot of Lilly.

    And lastly, did I really see Evie in footie pajamas, in Arizona, in AUGUST? I'm a sweaty mess just thinking about it.

    Oh, and one more thing. I hardly know what to do with myself. This will be the first time in 9 years that I won't be seeing you at least once a week. Little sad.

  7. Love your back to school pics!

  8. sweet e looks unthrilled w/school starting haha

    we start the 22nd. i must remember to 'copy' you and add the stats and fav things. you did this last year and i wanted to then. i'm horrible w/remembering lately!

  9. Another great idea to do every year! Your kids are adorable! Though Ben is probably past the stage where he wants to be called adorable huh?
    My four year old weighs more than Micah- she is a tank

  10. I go from being so excited to unexcited about brennan going to preschool next month. Mainly excited though:)

  11. oh my, they are sooooo grown up! how could that possibly have happened?! ;)

  12. It is always on the side of those who needs help. |

  13. You’ve got some interesting points in this article. I would have never considered any of these if I didn’t come across this. Thanks!. |

  14. Thank you for another fantastic posting. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a speech next week, and I was looking for more info ;) |
