Conversation Tonight

Me:  What was the most important thing you did today?
Britton:  Play with Hayden and Corbin  (cousins)
Me:  Why was that so important?
Britton:  Well, Mom, because THEY are important.

There is nothing more important to Britton than his family.  I'm so glad that he "gets" that.  And I'm glad he's able to see so much of his family so often.  What a lucky kid!

Big Brother

Last night Haley was so tired that she kept getting in trouble.  At one point, she called Britton a name and then hit him.  I told her to go to her room for a bit.  While in her room, she was crying pretty hysterically.  In her crying, she said, "I don't even like myself."
Britton heard her and immediately said, "Haley, don't say that.  You're great.  Greater than you even know, especially to us."
It was so sweet and so sincere, especially since she had been so mean to him all night long.  I love that he is such a good big brother.

Bear Lake

We took a weekend trip to Bear Lake last weekend.  Jon and Mijoung and family, my dad, and Jon's neighbors all went.  And we brought Dylan and Destry (Sheryl's boys) with us.  It was so much fun.  I have always loved Bear Lake and its beautiful blue water. 
It was a bit cold and windy, but we still managed to have a great time.  We played at the beach, ate raspberry shakes, sat in the hot tub, went fishing, and enjoyed the views.  Unfortunately, I didn't take too many pictures.

First Day of School

I didn't know they let monkeys go to school.

Big First Grader!  Gets to eat lunch at school now.
