Okay so I have been a total blogger-slacker this summer. Here are a couple of posting to kind of catch up! :)

Ryker's first day of Kindergarten

Ryker is now in Kindergarten!!! I can't believe it! He is getting to big to fast. He loves school. He gets to go to the library, have computer classes , recess, music class, and has met a lot of new friends. His teacher sends home homework each night. Which he actually likes to do. He was so excited to go to school. I am so proud of him. He is doing such a great job!

We went to Bonderant Wyoming for our family reunion. We all went cowboy style. It was so much fun. My whole family was there including my Aunt Jeanine, her kids and my Grandma Porter. I will have to be honest, I wasn't sure how fun this was going to be... long drive, mud, cold at night...but now we can't wait to go again. My parents went all out. We went horseback riding, fishing, 4-wheeling, razor rides, they shot guns, sat in hot pots, wood burning, made necklaces, marshmallow shooters, bow and arrows, pillows, the best food, jokes, games at night and the list goes on and on. We were there for 4 days and wished we could have stayed longer. Every night and every morning we had devotionals on prophets where each family had a name. We were Heleman and the 2000 stripling warriors. We put on a little skit and the boys learned so much and had a blast. We can't wait till next year. Thanks so much Dad and Mom! We Love You!

Oakley's Blessing Day

Oakley got a little worn out!

She loves getting kisses from her brothers!
All 3 in their blessing dresses!

We blessed Oakley August 3rd and it turned out perfect. Oakley was so funny that day. We went to church and I was hoping she would fall asleep before the blessing but just as Bo was walking up she started to cry! She cried through her whole blessing...I thought it was so cute. Then right when Bo sat down from the blessing she fell asleep. She is so sweet. We had lunch over in Grandma Sue's house in her grove. It was so pretty. Oakley was a little worn out from the day but I think it turned out perfect.
