Uncle Chet and Auntie Kimber

Last weekend we enjoyed a visit from my brother and sister-in-law Kim. We had a great visit. The guys got the insulation blown in, us girls got pedicures. Seemed fair to us! The only complaint I have about their visit to us? It was TOO SHORT!!! Miss these guys already!

Paige and her Uncle Chet have a very..ummm…special (?) relationship!

Anson said he was going to miss uncle Chet very much because “he taught me so many awesome things”. Primarily, the correct way to shoot a rubber band.

Kim and I thought it would be fun to carve pumpkins. Thought being the operative word here. Turns out we did it on our own and Paige was the photographer. What a mess!

Uncle Chet tried to get Ava to warm up to him the whole visit. Not sure this was the right way to go about it.

A Year Older

                                                 Paige Elizabeth-1st Grade, Mrs. Johnson

Anson Lael-2nd Grade, Mrs. O'Connell

I can't believe how much the kids have changed from their school pictures last year! They are both loving school this year. At this point the way things are graded is O-outstanding, S-Satisfactory (there are also S+ and S-'s) and N-needs more work. Anson has 8 subjects and is getting O in 4 and S+'s in 4..yes I'm bragging a little :). Paige doesn't get progress reports sent home every 2 weeks like him but she comes home with lots of O's and S's on her homework. She seems to really love anything that involves creativity whereas he likes the academic side of things and HATES to draw or color. We're so proud of these two and our daily prayer for them is that they reflect in school the things they are taught here at home.
