We borrowed Dad's tractor a couple weeks ago to do some work in our yard and have had it parked out back. The other day the kids were playing outside and I came out to find that Jacob finally discovered it was back there and had climbed up and was playing on it. He thought it was the coolest new toy and was mad when I pulled him down!

Landon's Bike

Cailyn has been spending a lot of time on her bike this summer. Landon tried to keep up with her using an old bike we got at a garage sale a long time ago, but it soon became apparent that he needed something a little better. So as a reward for finally learning to say prayers all by himself he got to pick out a new bike. Doesn't he look uber cool with his shades and helmet? :)

3rd Grade

I really can't believe that summer is gone and another school year has started. Life just moves too quickly these days! And I can't believe my little girl is starting 3rd grade. I swear it feels like yesterday when she started Kindergarten. She has grown up so much in just a few years. Pretty soon she'll be turning 8 and getting baptized! Cailyn has been such an amazing little helper this summer. She is always willing and happy to unbuckle the boys car seats, help them into their high chairs, get them drinks or snacks, help clean up, etc. I will miss her being gone all day and I know Landon will, too. They have been the best of friends and have loved playing together. Cailyn always comes up with creative and fun things to do for them. She is such a bright girl and I just love her so very much!!!
