Phoenix Children's Museum

I highly recommend visiting the Phoenix Children's Museum. We were able to go for free on Sunday, and we had a great time. We all made door hangers, and Athena made some clay crafts. It was a great way to spend the afternoon together.

Kendra's Birthday Cake

Kendra made a beautiful Red Velvet cake for her birthday. The recipe called for 2 oz. of red food coloring (that would be 8 little viles of food coloring). She didn't add that much, but it was still nicely red.

The end of the pathetically long posting drought

All right, I admit I am a slacker and haven't posted, but the real problem has been writers block, or internet user block. Even now I struggle to complete a sentence, so you will have to just look at the pictures from the last little while...
Amy and Athena at Squaw Peak after the BYU vs. Wyoming football game.
Fiona, Conlan and Athena playing with virtual sand at the Arizona Science Center.

Athena's First Day of Kindergarten

My baby is growing up. Athena started Kindergarten 2 weeks ago. I have had a little trouble with the whole thing, but mostly just feeling left out of this part of her life. The campus is closed, so I have to just drop her off on the curb and watch her walk through a fence and hope she has a good day. I miss being able to talk to her teacher everyday and meet the kids in her class like I could when she was in pre-school.

I also miss having a second person in the car, not being able to use the HOV lane is frustrating. I hate being stuck in traffic and watching cars zoom by in the HOV lane, it is like pouring lemon juice over my already tender wounds of separation from Athena.

The school is having an icecream social on Wed. and i can't wait to meet some of the kids in her class. The kindergarten classes are also having a recital, probably to increase the attendance at the ice-cream social and the book fair. I will try to post a short video clip of the recital.

New Phones

Tim finally bought my birthday present today!!! We are the proud new owners of iphones. Now I have to figure out how to import all my contacts, and take the time to type in email adresses.
