Gracyn's Birthday...we wound string all around our house leading to little gifts along the path and ultimately leading to her big gifts which were a hand-me-down laptop computer and digi-camera. It was an exciting day!

Color change!!

Odell's birthday...He was supposed to go out with a fishing guide as his birthday present. This is the morning of his fishing day...Needless to say, it will have to be another day....

Just an update on our life...We are plugging along with schoolwork. All kids stay home for part of the day and go to school for part of the day. At least Kaegan will do that after they finally do the testing. I'm in no hurry, though. I am having fun with them all here, and sort of dread sending him even for a short part of the day. I'm actually about to post on his progress blog, so check out

The weather is definitely fall-ish with some winter thrown in. It snowed about 8-10 inches a couple of weeks ago and we woke up to snow yesterday morning. Today looks suspicious too.

We saw a baby bear at the soccer field the other day, but I didn't have my camera. Our neighbor went out to get into his car the other day at 9 am and a huge bear was standing beside it. That would be a little freaky. They usually have wandered back up the mountain by that time of the day.
