I wanted to put this picture on here because it reminds me of Kristina when we were younger. If you were to ask me what I remember most about Kristina I would have to say that all she ever wanted was to be a mommy. She LOVED kids! And true to the Kristina I knew growing up, she offered right away to take my boys down the big slides. Here she is with my boys and one of her girls.
I had to throw this one in because it is humorous to me. Here little Hyrum is with a life jacket on and a floating ring. Pretty safe, huh? Yet he has this huge nasty bump on his head (from earlier that day. Poor baby tripped and hit the side of a book case)!

Ok, so that above section was a little heavy with sarcasm.....not something that I really care for but I have to be honest in telling you that is how I felt this morning. But I soon got over it once inside. David took Brigham down to the ECC (Early Childhood Center) and I stayed with Levi at the Upper Elementary while he had breakfast in the cafeteria. We would have stayed with Brigham but he didn't eat breakfast until later and school was ready to start for him. Grove Schools provide free breakfast which I think is so cool. Levi didn't know what to do so we stayed with him and being the wonderful brother that he is, he gladly shared his food with Hyrum.
Oh my goodness this is the cutest picture! He was so cute with his backpack. Auntie got him a backpack for his birthday because she knew both of his brothers would have one everyday going to school and didn't want him left out. Seeing this little guy with a backpack and yet still sucking on a sippie.....just so darn cute!

Here Levi is with his 1st grade teacher, Mrs. Eberle. I am thrilled that Mrs. Eberle is his teacher! I went to school with Jamie and I associate a fond memory with her. I was in middle school when she came over to my house to help me learn some cheerleading "moves." She was so nice to me and it was the year that I made cheerleader after 2 years of trying and not making the team. It meant even more to me that she would come over and help me when she was 2 years older than me and in high school and yet still took the time out to help this middle schooler out. I guess she was always meant to be a teacher...I'm so glad she is his teacher!

It's finding nature just outside your house. This tree is in our front yard....yes, full of bees!
Summer is the plenty of hummingbirds that come back year after year to Grandma and Grandpa's place to get their homemade hummingbird food. Grandpa says that they have so many hummingbirds (up to 10!) because his hummingbird food is so sweet it puts those birds on a sugar high!
Summer is the many parks that the boys and I find to get as much play as possible. I have to admit, though, since being here in Okie we don't do it as much as in times past because it gets so hot!
And now I get to see my children, niece, and nephew do the same thing that I did with my grandpa growing up; making homemade ice cream!
Long are the days of summer when it is hot and humid but there are memories to be made!
