All in the family

I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family. This was taken at Ashley's baby shower in March. She is the furthest on the left, pregnant with twins, not hardly showing--I know she makes me sick. All of these beautiful women are my sisters, Ashley, Samantha, Molly and Gretchen and my Grandma Blanche and my mom Allyn. I also have 2 brothers. Then you start adding spouses and our family multiplies uncontrollably, but I love this picture and wanted to share it. It was at my moms home and we had a lot of fun catching up with old friends from "the ward." My parents have lived in this home in Pocatello for 25 years so it has some great memories and friends surrounding it that really define who I am and literally where I come from.

Kindergarten Here I come!

Emma graduated from preschool and she is super excited to go to Kindergarten. She already met her teacher and did her "testing" to see where she is in the ready to read scale. I think she expected to go as soon as she turned 5, which was in March. After her birthday weekend she woke up Monday morning expecting to go to Kindergarten. Of course that didn't happen.

Then when she finished Preschool she was ready the very next day to head off to Kindergarten. It has been a hard adjustment for her to have to wait for the summer to be over. It is hard for kids to understand the concept of time. 3 months means nothing to her. It might as well be 3 years.

I wanted to share this picture because #1 it is super cute and #2 is a source of great conflict for me. This is by far one of the best pictures ever taken of her. They never take the normal school pictures this well. No this is one of those that they take without you knowing, print a million of and send home for you to "look at" but are not obligated to purchase. Whoever thought of this dirty trick is on my list! And not only does it look great, it cost 3 times what the crappy school pictures I bought at the beginning of the year cost. Stupid Picture man. Not fair.
