First Day of School...

Well, it may have been back in September, but here they are! Miles started middle school, 6th grade, and Caroline started 4th.

It may look like bedhead, but he enjoys styling his hair with lots of product and making it all wacky. It's fine with me.

Caroline has had this outfit picked out for a week....

Caroline and Phoebe have the same teacher this year! Yea!
Well, that sums up the first day of school. My plan is to post 5 pics a day until I'm caught up.

Layout

I thought that I would experiment with a new layout. I kind of like the green background, and how the photos are framed with white. I'm not sure about the big white stripe going down on the right.....

Catching up...if possible

Yes, I have been an extremely lame blogger. Many things have happened since Provo, I am sure. I do get tired of waiting for the photos to download sometimes.....

At the end of August, Miles and Caroline's friend Anna wrote a play. She was so excited by the unit they did on Shakespeare at school, she wrote this play called the "39th Shakespeare". It was very well written and staged. Caroline had a small part as an "actor" who always spoke in rhymes, and Miles did some very good scenery work backstage. Caroline is second on the left here:

While the girls of the family went to Provo, Utah, the boys went camping at Mt Rainier and took a fantastic hike up to Panorama Point. They would like you all to know that they are not sweaty, it was so hot they put snow in their hats and it melted on them. I wasn't there, this is the story they tell me.

Caroline and Cousin Stefan share August 18 as a birthday. We take photos every year. Stefan is becoming very elusive when a camera comes out, so consider this a success! She is 9, he is 14 now.
My friend Beth had a baby the first week of September. Here he is! Jackson....
We had a weird year in the garden, due to June-uary and Aug-tober weather issues. Sunflowers were amazing, though.
