What a Week!

We had a pretty successful first week of school. Tyler and Kayla have seminary each morning at 0600. We have to leave the house by 0545 to get there on time. Then I have to pick them up at 0645 and take them to the high school which starts at 0725. They are really liking school. It just took some getting used to having almost five thousand other students in the halls. I totally forgot to get first day pictures of them. What can I say, it was early? So I hope you enjoy this picture of a lizard that I took in the backyard.
Cooper is pretty sure that he is going to catch this guy. He watches for him to come out every day. 
Brooklyn and Sierra are also enjoying school. They too go to rather large schools, in the one to two thousand range. Brooklyn goes at 0815 and Sierra goes at 0855. I am not sure that I like the staggered start and end times. I am sure that I will get used to them though.

Strike a pose!

Fun in the Sun at Stewart Beach, Galveston

Brooklyn sorting her shells
Sierra, why must you always stick out your tongue? 
I think Kayla and Shelby, aka Smudge, are having a dance party.
Synchronized swimming anyone?
Pretty Birds!
The water was so warm 
There's your beautiful smile
Brooklyn trying to hide the fact that she is eating something 
Nice to see them getting along 
I like clouds 
Cooper not really enjoying the ocean.
He was scared of the waves and we wouldn't let him chase the birds.
Tons of people 
Look at this cool shell I found 
People watching! A very entertaining activity. 
Pretty girl!
I love that this photo is blurry. I don't know why.
Another pretty girl! 
Not a pretty girl, but definitely a handsome man/boy.
James making sure we didn't lose any of the kids in the waves.

Buy Me Some Peanuts and Cracker Jack...

On our way to the ball park.

He is really EXCITED!

Look Shelby, it's Minute Maid Park!

Nice sombreros amigos!

Nice cheese heads!

We had "better" seats this time. Brooklyn hated them because she couldn't see much of what was happening.

Brooklyn with her signed ball from Brewers catcher, Lucroy #20.

Me taking a picture of Kayla taking a picture of some random people.

Of course it is not a baseball game without me some Cracker Jack, mmmm!
