Kindergarten Cooper

video

Doesn't he look cute? After two years in Ms. Cindi's preschool, Cooper "graduated". Now technically, Cooper could have qualified to go to kindergarten last year, just barely squeaking in before the deadline. But ... he wasn't potty trained and was the ultimate mommy's boy, so I kept him with me one more year. I was a little worried he might not be ready for kindergarten even as he was turning six years old (he cried all through registration). But when the day came... off he went. I loved capturing this photo as he came out.

Cooper's really doing great in school. His teacher says he's a wonderful boy and an example to others. There are still days when he cries and he doesn't want to go to school ... and truthfully, I'd actually LOVE to have him home with me. Little brother Colton is just lost without him and can't wait until it's time to pick him up each day. Go kindergarten Cooper !

Summer Recap

We had a busy and fun summer ... we jump started it by running a family 5K ...
and a hike to Secret Lake
J&G did LOTS of hikes, just the two of them

We got in one rainy camping trip to Pineview
Keaton got a fly IN his ear

... a trip to Lagoon ...
We bring the trailer and camp overnight.

We went rafting down the Provo River with friends

and of course ... summer means SCOUT camp ...

and swimming

and water wars in the front yard with friends

Jumping Jacks, NickleMania and miniature golf
were just a few of the fun things we did during the days.

Lots of bowling
(thanks Allstar Lanes for the Summer Safe Pass)

and summer means LOTS of lessons ...
Landon took several sessions of golf

there was the annual swimming lessons

tennis lessons

Cooper did basketball camp
and Keaton did a soccer clinic

We went to a couple cool car shows

and to finish off the summer with a big bang, we had a TRIPLE birthday party (Landon, Keaton and Cooper) ... three cakes! It was a movie theme, with bingo and other games to earn "tickets" that could be redeemed for concessions (popcorn, drinks and candy) as we showed a "movie" in the backyard. It was a lot of fun. Now ... back to school and schedules. Bye Summer!
