We have been busy this past week. Brooklyn lost another tooth and I just had to post the bloody picture (for James). Sierra has to fix some of the stitching on her apron that she made in 4-H so that she can submit it to state fair for judging. She placed first at our local fair. Kayla made strawberry jelly and french bread and submitted them in the Jerome County Fair and placed first on both. She also submitted various other projects and placed first on them all. She has also been taking swimming lessons and has been afraid to dive in...well yesterday she finally did it and had fun. We are so proud of her. Tyler has also been taking swim lessons and is almost swimming as well as his dad. He has also been practicing really hard with the youth choir to preform at the cultural event for the dedication of the Twin Falls Temple. He is very excited to have the opportunity to preform in this once in a lifetime event. I have been busy canning beans (42 pints and 6 quarts). Next I am going to can soup and get meals ready to freeze. I can't believe that we have just 2 1/2 weeks until school starts. James is loving his new job, although he has been traveling quite a bit.

We were in the car tonight headed to Taco Time from Wal-Mart, when I turned at the light to go to our house instead of the next light where it would have been a strait shot there. I said "crap, I should have turned at the next light." When Brooklyn started to tell me how I could still get to Taco Time from where we were. I told her that I knew we could get there going that way. She said, "I'm so smart...but you already knew that." Where does she get this stuff?!?

Are you in Jerome right now?!

Sounds like the kiddos are doing great! I can't believe it is almost time for school to start again, this summer has FLOWN by!

No, just the two older kids are in Jerome. They will be there until the 16th. The summer has gone fast. I could sure use a few more weeks.
