Building a House

Well, we've been in the process of building a new home. In the mean time we are living with Dionne's mom and dad, and Tommy is commuting three days a week to attend seminary.

Here's a few photos.

What He Wants To Be When He Grows Up: Firefighter

If he had one wish, what he would wish for: He Could Cut Trees

One of my favorite things that I like about Parker: He loves life, plays hard, works hard!

Braden's Very First Day of School

I thought I would devote this post to Braden alone. Just to prove that even when you are child #5, there are pictures of you! These pictures were taken on the day of orientation.

Summer Memories

The kids love going bike riding with Papa!

Ryan loves golf. Tommy has successfully brainwashed him!

Parker would have mowed all summer long if you would have let him. He is a hard worker! He is the only one who stays outside the whole time and helps Dad or Papa with the yard work.

The girls had a great time selling ice blue raspberry lemonade.

They even made up their own cheers in the hopes of drawing customers.

First Day of School 2007

Parker- Kindergarten
Katelyn- 5th grade
Ryan- 2nd grade
Kara - 4th grade
Braden- Pre-K
Each year the kids make signs and have their picture taken.

They are finally all in school. For the first time in 10 years, I have no little ones at home with me. Many times through the years, I had wondered what it would be like and wished it would come soon, (especially the days when I had 3 in diapers!)but I have to say, that I miss them.
