Sweet Sisters

My sister, Becca, just sent me some pics from when we were all visiting in Washington at our parent's house a couple weeks ago. I had to post this one that was taken at the BYU vs. UW game on Sept. 6th. Aren't we adorable? I think we were just so happy because BYU was winning.

And then here are some shots of my kids at Point Defiance Zoo in Tacoma.

Guess where I had dinner last night?

Shawn and I went to our Ward's Elders Quorum BBQ Party at Jon Heder's (star of Napoleon Dynamite) house. Well, he doesn't actually live there anymore (I think he lives in LA), but his parents still live there and one of his brothers was mowing the lawn. I met his dad too. And saw his wedding pictures on the bookcase in the kitchen. Shawn even played tetherball in the backyard. Pretty cool, huh?

Sarah's 1st day of Kindergarten/Worst Mother Ever

Here's Sarah posing outside the school before her first day of kindergarten. She was so excited, and I was so excited for her. I took her to school and walked her to her class (Grace was in a stroller and Jacob was on a leash - I know that sounds cruel but there was no way I could hold on to him otherwise). Sarah didn't even hesitate one bit, in fact I think she was happy to finally see me leave.
So I drive away with a list of a few errands to run. Everything was going according to schedule and I still had about 45 minutes until I had to be back at the school to pick her up. I was right by Walmart and needed a few items, so I checked the GPS to see how much time I needed to give myself to get back to the school which gave a good 30 minutes to shop. No problem, right?

Let's just say I got in the wrong check out line. The lady in front of me had every issue imaginable. I kept thinking I should move, but I figured by the time I did the lady in front of me would be done. I stood in that check out line for 30 minutes. Can you believe that? I mean I know you can expect to stand in line for awhile at Walmart, but 30 minutes? Anyway, I was about 20 minutes late in picking up Sarah. I called the school as soon as I got in the car to leave the store and told them what happened. She was happily sitting in the office waiting for me. Hopefully no psychological damage has been done.
