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!!!

Nephi Derby

We went to the Nephi derby with Julie's family. It was fun to watch the cars crash. We enjoyed it better than the monster truck show. We didn't realize it would be so late but it was fun. I wish I would have gotten a picture of all of us.

We got to see a truck roll over, tons of cars got stuck, dirt flying, and much more!!!

We had great seats the only problem was when people would stand at the rail. I ended up asking kids to sit down but when I was climbing back up I fell down HA HA teach me to tell people to get out of my way.

Salem Days Parade

Salem Days Parade is the best. Not only do the kids get tons of candy but Amber's family saves us the best seats in the house. Jared had fathers in sons the night before I wasn't sure if he would make it back in time but I was pulling out to go to the parade when he pulled up. It worked out perfectly. Bryce was able to clean up while I had the boys with me.

Payson Lakes

For the last 3 years I go up to Payson lakes with Jared. We meet up with his friend McKoy which is my friend Ashley's nephew. Jared and McKoy became friends at their babysitter and Ashley and I have been friends since we were little. We lived by each other. The boys played in dirt and went swimming. The adults just sat around playing games and chatting.
