First Day of Kindergarten

First day of kindergarten! She could not be more ready to start school. She proclaimed today to be "the greatest day ever". I'm a little sad but I didn't cry. Kindergarten is only a couple of hours long. I will be lucky if I can accomplish anything while she is gone. I feel like the time is slipping through my fingers but at the same time I know where the time has gone. I could not love this child more. She is so funny and smart and adorable. She has the same kindergarten teacher that Red Fish had and we adore her.

Back To School Dinner And Second Grade

 The night before school starts, we have a special dinner. We make goals for the year and Two Fish gives the girls a father's blessing.
 I can't believe she is in 2nd grade! Time is flying past. I love her more with each day and am so proud of the amazing person she is becoming. She is doing the French immersion program again this year. If she sticks with it she should be fluent by the end of elementary school.
 Red Fish has a group that walks to school or rides bikes.

Last Picnic Before School Starts

We went to the park with great grandma Mimi for a picnic and playtime. This is their "thing" with Mimi. They call them chicken nugget picnics. We gave Mimi a special bag of picnic supplies that she brings and we go to the park across from her house. It is mandatory to eat chicken nuggets as per the girls. Please please let them remember these things.

Up The Canyon

One of our favorite things to do is to go up the canyon and picnic and make smores. We go with friends as much as possible.

Zoo Day

 A trip to Hogle Zoo

I cannot get enough of this kid and her big personality. Her excitement and energy keeps me on my toes at all times. This was a great day, just the three of us.

Snake Charmer

Just another example of how much braver Red Fish is than I. I would never ever hold a giant snake but Red Fish LOVES them. This is at a birthday party she attended. Yuck, yuck yuck! She wants a pet snake but she is going to have to wait until she has her own house.

Always WIth The Babies

Red Fish practicing her babysitting skills. She will be a pro by the time she is old enough. She can't wait.

12 Years

 We spent the weekend boating. Red Fish is a total maniac on the tube and laughs the whole time.

Two Fish and I have been married for 12 years. Best choice I ever made.

A Girl And Her Dad

 This girl LOVES her Daddy. She has been learning to ride her bike which she finds a bit scary but she is doing a great job.
