Evan's E's

He was practicing his E's today in his room. Hes getting pretty good at E at least. Only 3 more letters to go for his first name.
Nora has been walking around with her Cinderella doll alot lately. Very cute. Im getting used to the girly stuff.
And just a random one of Ry during lunch at Chili's on Saturday.
Happy Birthday to Bumpa and Mema. :)

Evan started dance class last week. There was one other boy (who didnt really participate in class and may drop out) but Evan didnt seem to care at all. He had fun pretending to be a frog and jumping on one foot.
We went to the zoo on Sunday for my moms work employee party. Beautiful day. Nora loved the train and carousel! Ry is such a loving big brother but sometimes acts a bit too daddy like and gets SO worried about her. Its sweet though.
And a pic of Nora climbing on the old man River. I think he likes it. He turned 13 last week (Canyon shares the same bday as River and shes 11 now).

Cub Scouts

We let Ry sign up for Cub Scouts this year. He likes doing hands on projects and the den group is small so he should have alot of fun. Hes pretty excited to be a Wolf Cub. Parents have to go so it gets him some one on one time with either me or Jim so thats a huge bonus. Hes doing dance again this year in the all boys jazz/hip hop class which starts the end of the month. So far so good at school.
Heres the other 2 kiddos who are much more camera hams. Evans asking all the time for me to take his picture. Usually with some odd object in hand (like the play frying pan). And Nora is just all smiles the second she sees the camera. My friend Debbie made this sweater as a gift. Its so cute!

School days

Ry had a nice first week of school. Evan LOVES being back at preschool one morning a week with his friends. Very cute. Heres Ry and Evans first day of school pics and then one of Nora from the weekend.
I got this email from a friend and thought I would post it because they are all so true.

I Believe...That just because two people argue, it doesn't mean they don't love each other. And just because they don't argue, it doesn't mean they do love each other.
