Family Reunion, Girls Camp, Zoe's basketball camp, Courtney announces her pregnancy, and Jackson turns 18.
Day at the beach
Aftyn and Will
Aftyn looks for me when I have my camera out, asks to have her picture taken and then immediately wants to see it. Wow, when I was her age we wouldn't get the film developed until we had forgotten what was on the roll!
All in line, shiny and fine!!
Holly and I took 6 hours one day to drive the four oldest girlies (Kylie, Sammi, Sydney, & Sierra) to Forks, Washington. Here is "Bellas" house. Something we learned that day was, nothing was filmed in Forks, Wa!! The book is just set in Forks.
Also in July Jackson got his green cast off, and a brace on. It had to be worn 24 hours and kept sliding, and needing adjusting. It still felt good for him though to be moving in the right direction.
Sammi and Kylie were also woken up one morning, blindfolded and taken out to breakfast. They were freaking out over it. You gotta love Tanner and his fun date ideas.
Sammi had awesome day after braid hair at Girls Camp!
Sierra's awesome hair after girls camp. I was afraid we were going to have to shave her head.
Morning assembly at Girls Camp.
Sierra Joli Noftle first day of seventh grade.
Samantha Reine Noftle First day of her Junior Year.
Zoe Ciel Noftle first day of fifth grade.
And with Grandma Louise. Open your eyes mother, sheesh.
Oh my gosh, they really are growing up.
Also in August we had to take Jackson to Seattle Childrens for a couple of days of testing and exams so we took all the kiddos and went to the Zoo. We wanted to do something fun, felt like the whole summer had one or both of their parents at the Restaurant.
Also my beautiful daughters at beautiful Bellevue temple where Michael and I were married more than 20 years ago. We went for beautiful Kara Allreds wedding.
Sierra had to be bribed to be brave enough to feed a bird. If you rememberyears ago in Florida for the make a wish trip we learned Sammi and Sierra were scared of birds.
At Karas reception there was a downpour, the rational parents made their kids come in from the rain, the irrational ones just enjoyed the peace while their kids got soaked. But look how happy they are to play in the rain!
Kara and Cameron Shumway. Brenda took the wedding pictures it was fun to have her there. Now that I think about it this might have been July not August, hmmmm it was July or August for sure!
I didn't download any pictures of Sammi & Sierra playing volleyball, Jax & Carter playing football which is pretty much what September and October were all about. Some weeks we had 7 games between all the kids. I'll post pictures and video soon (not committing to a date am I!!). But here is one to hold you over:
I thought I uploaded the Halloween pictures to blog about, but I guess not. Don't worry I'm sure once I get home at 1:00 am I'll feel like finishing this up!!
