Family Photos 2015

This was a painless family photo year.

 And this picture takes home the trophy!

The Katester loves that thumb!

 How did I get so lucky?
I am in love with this family life!

A Perfect Fall Day

A Solid or a Liquid?

50 boxes of corn starch + water = a solid and a liquid

Kate and Cabub

A Trumpet and a Violin

Sometimes they sleep with their instruments right next to them.
And then, just when Christian and I think they are asleep,
we hear some squeaky bowing or some horn blasts.
And then we smile.

Back To School 2015

 This year, our theme is
"Thou shalt thank the Lord thy God in all things"
(D&C 59:7)

 We feasted from our garden:
Sweet corn tamales and salsa
Beet salad
Cabbage southwest salad
Peach tart with fresh vanilla ice cream.

 "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
-William Butler Yeats

I have so much to be thankful for!

Summer's Bounty

 There is nothing more delicious than a juicy, sweet, warm peach, right off the tree.

 The tree branches were so loaded down with juicy,sweet, warm peaches.
We sampled some right down to the pit.

And then we licked the pit clean.

 I love eating nature's bounty,

 I love dirty, sweaty kids.

"Give me more!"
