First day of school!

I can't believe that my baby is going to school! He was so excited. He gets to ride the bus. He wouldn't even let me take him to school for his first day because he wanted to take the bus. He went and had a great time. I was waiting for him to come home and the bus went flying by the house without stopping. I thought for sure he was going to be on the bus freaking out. I waited 20 minutes to see if the bus would come back and then I called the bus garage. They told me that his driver had been having some problems, so they dispatched her and she said that Boe was the boy she was having problems with because she didn't know where he lived and he didn't either. I gave them the address and she said he would be here soon. When Boe finally made it home, he was as happy as could be, even though I was almost in tears! He had no idea that anything had been wrong. I told him that he wouldn't always be the last one off the bus. He said, "I know that, we take turns. Sometimes I'll be first or second." I was so relieved that he wasn't freaking out. He has loved school and comes home everyday singing the fun songs he has learned and telling me all about his day.

New House

Well, I am finally getting around to posting on my blog. We moved to Rexburg a few weeks ago. Dan is going to be a teacher and the new wrestling coach at Madison High School. He is also helping with the freshman football team and will be the head freshman baseball coach. We actually moved to a little town about 7 miles south of Rexburg called Lyman. It is out in the country and we really like it here. We have painted every room and put new carpet and pergo in. It has been a lot of work, but worth it. The yard is completely weeds, so that is our next project. Hopefully we will get it done soon.

This is the view from our sliding glass doors in our kitchen. We love that you can't see any other houses. We are going to put in a sprinkler system and then hydroseed, so hopefully, this will all be beautiful green grass next year.

This is the living room when you first walk in the front door. Dan put in the archway that you can see in the corner. It really opened things up. He did a really good job.

Here's the kitchen/dining room. Shay came and helped us put in the pergo. It really made things look nice.

Boe and Kamber picked the colors for their rooms and helped paint. Boe's is blue and Kamber's is princess purple.

We put a new sectional in the family room. It has three recliners. We love to lounge in it and watch t.v.

Boe loves it because we made a little place for video games to be played at.

Kamber loves it because there is plenty of room for her to dance!
