School Begins September 6

Eleven days until school starts. I can't believe we have to wait so long. I am jealous of all you other parents whose kids are already in school.
Camryn will start 3rd grade at Sage Elementary...home of the sage fox. Ethan starts 8th grade at Rock Springs Junior High...home of the cougars. Melena will be a Junior at Rock Springs High School..home of the tigers. (I don't have the school colors figured out yet.)
We are going to Salt Lake this weekend for a family reunion and to shop for school clothes and school supplies. Yes we could shop in Rock Springs. They do have a Walmart and a JC Penney's but I want to go to the big city. I am hoping to have a never ending pasta bowl at Olive Garden. It is Ethan's favorite place to eat and since it is unlimited refills it is a win-win situation to keep a growing boy fed.

I Begin Anew To Post On My Blog

It has been 3 weeks and 5 days since we joined Kyle in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Wow, I really hate moving. Nothing is worse than unpacking. Just ask my children.
We bought a house and are moved in as much as we can. Our house has a main floor and an unfinished basement. Kyle is working every night after work to finish the basement. Ethan and Melena are hoping he will hurry because they want to move into their bedrooms downstairs. At present, Melena is sharing a room with Camryn.

I can't keep up!

I try to post everyday but I can't seem to keep up with it. We finished up with school last week. I'm not used to having the kids home from school so soon. Ethan in in a football camp this week and next week the kids are starting a bunch of fun activities. Camryn is going to learn tumbling and cheer leading and swimming. Ethan will be doing swim team, soccer and basketball. Melena is just going to be chilling out. She is not much of a joiner. She has girls camp coming up soon. Oh yes she turns 14 tomorrow. It's hard to believe. Just a quick update.

Little Bighorn Battlefield

On the drive we saw this mother antelope with her baby.

This monument represents the Native Americans who were present at Little Bighorn.

This is the area where General Custer
fell during the battle of Little Bighorn

Ethan listening to the story of the battle at
Little Bighorn. He really enjoys history.

Camryn was getting bored. She is not much of a history buff.
She would rather be out making history that listening to it.
The girl has got to move.

A herd of horses that were at the Little Bighorn Battlefield property. I thought that Pam Shofkom would enjoy them.

This tree was on the drive between the different sights of interest at Little Bighorn Battlefield. I thought that it created an interesting picture. I took it - not Melena. It was one of the times she let me handle the camera.

Kindergarten Promotion

My sweet little Kindergartner has just become a big 1st Grader. Today was Kindergarten Promotion. Camryn's teacher, Miss Terret celebrated their promotion in their classroom. She had the class sing a bunch of songs that they had learned throughout the year and then she presented each of the children a certificate and a little scrapbook with a page dedicated to each child. It was really nice.

Ethan finished up his elementary school career this year as well. The school didn't do anything special for the 5th graders. They did have a fun day the last day of school.

8th Grade Promotion

Today is the day, I can't believe has finally arrived. Melena has graduated from middle school and will be starting high school in the fall. How did the time pass so quickly. It seems like she was just starting kindergarten. Even worse she takes driver's ed next year.

Receiving her certificate of graduation.

Decorations for Melena's Promotion. The theme was "Let's Get Tropical"
