The last few days we have discovered it's getting cooler outside as we walk Porter down to the bus stop. As much as I hate to admit it I think summer is quickly making way for fall. Every year about this time I start panicking, thinking "What am I going to do when it too cold to play outside?" We always seem to manage but I honestly think summer is the BEST! Maya and Porter both have learned to hula hoop (Bennett is still practicing), Porter learned to whistle, Maya learned to snap, Bennett has taken his first (very wobbly) steps, Porter learned to ride a bike with no training wheels, and Maya learned to ride a bike with training wheels (we found one this weekend at a yard sale for $10.00 -Oh, another thing I'm going to miss, Yard Sales). Summer is great for learning new things (hopefully the school year will be able to measure up).


(P.S. our camera is out of commission (Casey broke it on his camping trip with his brothers - yes he is in big trouble) so we are having to rely on older pictures, indefinitely)

Amanda--you've got to be a pretty good mom to either let your kids run wild in the neighborhood or go out with them all the time (or maybe you have an awesome fenced backyard). I'm pretty much a boring mom and don't let my kids run the neighborhood AND its so hot that I don't last outside very long. Ah, the good old days of fenced backyards.

I love any old pictures you want to put up because I cn't tell if they are old or new! that Maya and the hula hoop is great Ijust love the expression on her face! I also can't believe that Bennett is starting to walk already--can you put a video of him on the blog page? We love you guys and miss you all very much give the kids a hug from us!

We miss you guys! The cooler weather has been HEAVEN for me (which I'm sure you can imagine) I actually turned off my air yesterday and today and was outside enough to get a sunburn!! I'll hopefully see you some time tomorrow! Super cute pictures!!

Hi Amanda and Casey,
Just thought I'd let you know that your Ensign came to us last week. Without thinking I opened it up and so I couldn't forward it anymore to you. We decided to give your Ensign to the missionaries and they are going to give it to some investigators. i hope that's okay... If next month's comes I'll forward it onto you guys if you'll email me your address. Hope you are all doing well. We sure miss you guys!

Thanks,
Emily
