August 2014 in Review

August was filled with lots of summer fun and school preparation.  While Nana was in town we ventured to Austin Park and Pizza.  The kids enjoyed rock climbing, go cart racing, bumper boats, miniature golf, fair rides, and arcade games as well as the pizza buffet.  The adults enjoyed the air conditioning!
 It was fun to watch all 4 climb the wall.  I was sure proud of Ben making it all the way to the top several times after falling on his first several attempts.

 School shopping for 4!  We did most of in in one morning at the Outlet Mall.  They did great considering the amount of stores we ventured in.  It was awesome having Nana there to help keep those who weren't trying on clothes entertained outside!
 Poor Joseph had to have 4 more teeth pulled before school started to get ready for the braces.  
 After working all summer long, Sam finally passed off all the swim strokes.  He would get discouraged when the butterfly was taking sooooo long to master.  We had a talk about doing hard things and sticking with it.  Hooray for Sam, he finally did it!
 Start of school.  We once again have kids in 3 schools, 4 if you count early morning seminary!  Not sure how I feel about having a child now in high school.  They are all doing great and enjoying their classes.

 After waiting for 11 months, Ben's front teeth have finally broken through and now he can eat apples and corn on the cob once again.  We were getting worries with how long they were taking to come down.
