It was such an exciting day for JJ. He left with his cub scout troop at 6:30am for the Jeremiah Johnson Scout Day Camp. JJ has never done anything like this before so I was a little nervous about how he would handle it – but I shouldn’t have worried. He came home about 2pm with a huge smile on his face! His leader told me how amazing he did today and that he actually started initiating conversations with the other boys and just trying and doing his best at everything. I’m so proud of him! He got to make a paper rocket, a wood airplane, and do lots of belt loops and other requirements! It was a wonderful day for him.
Soon after JJ got home – Grandma Smith arrived. She spent the afternoon and evening with us and the kids loved having her play with them. She helped us finish up organizing the toys in the kids room too. We had Uncle Aaron over for dinner and we had some really great conversation. After the kids went to bed and Joey took Aaron home – Mom Smith and I had a long conversation into the night and it was so great to have someone to lean on. Thanks Mom!

It was a hard day for me. I started the day with a bad panic attack that basically wiped my whole day. I’m so thankful to Joey and the kids for helping me through the day. JJ had his pack meeting tonight and got lots of belt loops from his day camp yesterday. He was so excited!

It was Beth’s last day of Soccer Camp. She had so much fun. The coaches played soccer games with them and then they got to have a huge water fight. Beth was completely drenched and completely happy!

Grandpa and Grandma Sorensen arrived today. They brought Uncle Clint and cousin Colby and some of their team to the BYU Basketball Camp, so they are staying with us for a couple of days. The kids were so excited to have them here! We attended the boys’ first game at the camp and then we picked up Joey and went to Cabella’s. What a store! The kids were fascinated by the displays! Then we went to IHOP for dinner (since Sizzler was closed before we could get there)!

It was a fun, busy day. We took JJ to school and then went and watched another basketball game before running Grandpa and Grandma around for this and that. After picking JJ up, we did some more shopping, had lunch, and went to another basketball game. It was fun to just be with my parents and visit!

Another exciting day! Grandpa and Grandma left early to go get some tar in Salt Lake City and they left for home later on in the afternoon. But we didn’t see them after that – because we had a lot to do! It was our DATE WITH THE KIDS DAY! We started by going to JJ’s last Tball game – where he got a fun trophy! Beth and I left a little early and went back home to curl her hair and dress her up. Then we headed over to the wonderful Princess Festival! It was our first year but we will definitely have to plan on making it a tradition. Beth got to go on a treasure hunt for a wonderful princess story & autograph book. She got to go on a princess adventure where she helped all the princesses. We did a little shopping at the booths, ate lunch, and took lots of pictures with the princesses. Beth ADORED it! While we were gone – JJ and Joey headed off to the arcade where they had lunch, played games, and JJ got to play his first laser tag game which he loved! About 3pm we all arrived home – hot and tired, but the kids were so happy! JJ then headed off for an hour of water time fun at a friend’s birthday party. We did a bit of down time before having pizza for dinner. Then we switched and Joey took his little princess to the Ball at the princess festival and JJ and I went to see Toy Story 3 in the theater. Beth had so much fun at the ball with the entertainment, the snacks, and the dancing and JJ really loved the movie! So I think our day was a COMPLETE SUCCESS!

The kids loved that Grandpa and Grandma left them DONUTS! It made for a great snack after church!
