This was at Jared's school parade. He wouldn't wear his mask I'm not sure why he wouldn't.

I got a phone call from Conner's daycare saying she thinks he has Hand Foot Mouth so I had to leave work to take him to the doctor. Sure enough he had it. We got home and I started rubbing essentail oils all over him and made him take baths with them in it. I missed a full week of school. I was able to go to Jared's parade at school. Then we went to Novell to trick or treat there. After novell we went to Cathy's to go around her neighborhood. Jenny and I took Conner and Payton, Bryce and Chad took Jared and Cade.

Carving pumpkins

The boys had fun carving pumpkins. The did a great job making a huge mess. I am doing a meal swap and they brought over soup and bread bowls. The boys were in heaven pulling out the middle of the bowl. I sure love my boys. I am so grateful to be their mother.

Pumpkin Patch

We met Jenny and the boy at Cathy's house to go to the pumpkin patch in Springville. It was fun the boys got to play in the corn, maze, a slide, went on a hay ride and look at animals. Payton wouldn't play in the corn he didn't like getting his socks dirty. After the kids were done playing Jenny left and we picked out pumpkins. We then went to dinner at a Mexican restaurant.

fall break

 The boys were excited that Grandpa brought Sherlock. Grandpa got teased a lot about having a little dog with him. When Troy pulled up for the day Sherlock was sitting on grandpa's lap.

 This was Billy's first time camping. We couldn't take him while he was a bomb dog but once he failed out we decided to keep him as a pet. He is a great pet because he is super lazy!!

 We couldn't get Jared's bike to start so I guess we need to make an appointment to see what is going on with it. I think he will be needing a new bike next season since he is growing like a weed.

Jared, Conner, Mom, Dad and Grandpa all slept over. Troy and Rob came up for the day.

Amber's is a great aunt. She made the kids cookies to decorate for Halloween. They had so much fun doing it. She brought them all the candy and frosting too. All I had to do is clean up the mess it was very nice of her. She even brought Bryce and me one that was already all done.

Jared played flag football. He enjoyed playing most the time he was goofing off. He didn't get the ball much until he played for a different team. His team had a lot more players so he offered to play for the other team. He ran the ball a lot. He was excited. It was sure cold to go watch him play. He had games the same night I played softball so I would go watch him then go to my games.

Bomb Dog

 Conner was laughing so hard when Billy's tail would hit him in the face.
Bryce got a bomb dog for work. He went to a 8 week training. The dog has to learn 22 scents. For the drug dogs they only have to learn 4 scents. Bryce was very stressed the whole time he was in school. 5 weeks into the training they washed Billy out because he didn't have enough drive to hunt for the scents. Bryce ended up getting another dog (I don't have any pictures yet.) So we ended up keeping Billy as a pet for the boys. So now we have 2 dogs. After Chip and Soda died we swore we would never get dogs again. HA HA that is funny!!! The boys love both dogs.

1st day of school

Boy was I nervous for the first day of school. I was sad to have Jared go to a different school that I wouldn't be at the whole time he was there. I am sure it will end up being great. Jared and I met his teacher the day before I have only heard great things about Mrs. Smith. She seems really nice. I hope Jared does loves school. I am sure he will.

My first day of school was very stressful. I have a very hard class. I was trying to do centers and I was running after kids from trying to escape. When the district people came in I started tearing up and told them I couldn't look at them. I felt stupid but I couldn't help it. I was very stressed out. Change is hard!!!
