Kyra it's your Birthday, Shout HOORAY

Although it seems like she is a lot older, Kyra turned 12 on September 11th. She had a a fun sleep over with her good friend Kristin. And of course, Makenna got to invite over Taryn to keep her busy through out the year. They played capture the flag, went on a scavenger hunt, got sprayed by a lot of water, and had some delicious cake and ice cream. She is having her real birthday party this weekend at Triple Play (I know she is a little spoiled). But is has been so fun to see her grow up this past week. Of course turning twelve she now is out of Primary and into Young Womens and she can't be happier about that. We got to go to the temple with her for the first time with her this weekend. It was so great. Her grandma Cindy also got to come along and it was just so amazing to see her go through this all for the first time. We are so proud of Kyra!

My New Job

So to say that I have been busy lately would be an understatement. Brett probably feels like he is married to a zombie right now because I will literally come home, take a bath, and go to bed. I forget how exhausting the beginning of school is. But I thought that I would post some photos of what I had to deal with when I was hired for this position. I took over for a lady who had been teaching for about 34 years, and I don't think she ever threw away anything! I walked into the room and had a little bit of a panic attach because I am a very organized person who likes open space. So you will get to see the transformation of my classroom!


Sorry the last picture is kind of blurry. I had to get rid of a lot of stuff and my cupboards and drawers are still full to the brim. Anyway, hopefully my year will go well and I will love it just as much as I love Kindergarten!

It's Been A While

It seems like it has been forever since I have updated my blog! Honestly there wasn't much to blog about in my life for the first part of August, then the second part things got a little crazy. I had the great opportunity of going to Hawaii with my family to visit Melanie and the girls. I had an AMAZING time. This was my first time to Hawaii and I was not let down. The only bad thing is that Brett was not able to go with me. But we had fun speding time on the beach, doing a lot of hiking, and some shopping. I tried to break up my pictures into beach days and hiking days.
The day after I got back from Hawaii I had a job interview at Windsor Elementary. I was called back that day and told that I was hired! This is very exciting but also SO STRESSFULL! I was hired a week before school started in a first grade classroom. It is still only a one year position again, but I am just grateful for a job right now. I will post more pictures about that later.

So here are the Hawaii pics.
