Back to School!

I can't believe the kids start back to school on Tuesday! Keenan, Tyler and Ethan will be in high school, Dallin in middle school and Hayleigh in elementary --- this is the last year that Kirsten will be home with me. I wonder what I'm going to do when she goes to school next year with all the free time I will have - hahahaha! I will probably do what I do now - laundry, soccer things, church things, clean, cook, etc.... I will just be able to watch HGTV instead of Nickelodeon! (Although I love Franklin and Little Bear)

This seems like just yesterday:

(First day of school 2005)

Keenan and Tyler (in the middle school uniforms) are now almost done high school! Keenan is a senior and Tyler is a junior. Ethan is a Freshman and will also start early morning seminary! Dallin is all by himself at the middle school - and will be all by himself on the bus too (whew - no more calls that he and Ethan are fighting!!!). Hayleigh is in 4th grade and couldn't believe her class supply list when we went to open house last night. She doesn't have crayons listed and she is so sad!

I told Kirsten that I would teach her how to write her name this year while everyone is at school. She told me that she needs bigger hands and I need to wait. Goofy kid!

Happy Birthday Boys!

I can't believe time has gone by so quickly that Kyle will be 19 years old tomorrow and Keenan will be 18 on Sunday!

it shouldn't be funny but...

Hayleigh has been sick the past couple of days. She was supposed to go to the beach with one of her school friends and ended up not being able to go! I felt so bad for her!

She is finally up and playing with Kirsten and fighting with Dallin (so I know she feels better!).

It was so funny the other day - and I know she was sick and wasn't thinking right - but we all laughed anyway ----- she wanted to say "I feel weak", but she said "I feel plump" instead! It was VERY funny - even Hayleigh laughed a little!

What a stinker!

I should've realized something was up....something was being planned......when Hayleigh very kindly asked me if she could throw some trash away for me!

When I've had a magazine 'long enough', I go through it and rip out any recipes, articles or photos that interest me and stick them in a folder. Yesterday I decided to go through the folder and throw away the stuff I no longer wanted. I had a huge pile of wadded up papers next to me on the floor. Hayleigh said, "mom, can I throw this stuff away for you?". I said, "wow! sure you can! What a helper you are!". Little did I know that she had taken the trash and stuffed Dallin's bed with it........

If she can plan stuff like this at her current age...what are these 2 going to be like in a couple of years? I am REALLY thankful that they won't be in high school at the same time! I think the principal would have my phone number on speed dial!
