Break for Fall...

A week off from school...what is a mom to do???
Lucky for us, we met my sister and her kids AND my parents in Durango, Co!
Doesn't sound say?
Oh...just wait!

The Durango-Silverton train....

My oldest nephew...he completely adores me as you can see...

Mesa Verde!!! The kids LOVED IT.

Thank goodness for Grandma. She took one for the team and stayed with Luke as we climbed the ruins.

And last but not least....THE 4 CORNERS! What childhood is complete without the 4 corners???

Getting to Heaven...

"mom, I'm really nervous that I'm not going to get to the highest Heaven."

"Why, buddy? You're the best kid ever...of course you're going to the highest kingdom."

Will: "Well, I am just, really shy. I'm scared I'll never be able to ask a girl on a date and I can't get married if I can't talk to girls."

Mom: "Don't you worry about that for one minute. You are handsome and super smart. The girls will be asking you out!"

Will: "Oh, well I'm still nervous."

The other day Will used his amazing vocabulary to make James and I laugh out loud instantaneously.
He hear him say to Jake,
"Jake, your sense of frugality is just ridiculous."
So true, buddy. So true.

I was taking Naomi to school the other day and I noticed a new toy on the playground. "Oh my goodness," I exclaimed. "How fun." "Do you ever play on the new toy?"


"Oh, why not? It's looks so fun!"

"Well, the other kids do but I don't"


"Oh, mom. I'm just so busy chasing the boys!!"

Awesome...I told James that she gets this from him. His response...
"I don't know what you're talking about. I never chased boys."
