3 Months Old!

Elijah turned three months old on the 19th. He is such a happy baby, always cooing and smiling at everyone. Elijah loves to play "so big" and be held up high above our heads. He is sleeping 8 to 81/2 hours at night, but doesn't always take much for naps during the day. Oh well, at least he's happy most of the time. I'm guessing he weighs a little over 14 lbs already. Here are a few of the pictures we took on Friday.

GEMS visit a dairy

It's hard to believe that I have been teaching GEMS for 4 years already! This year our girls are in 7th grade. As the girls get older we thought it would be fun to go on little outings for some of our badges. We visited my neighbors dairy/cheese house for our farming badge. Everyone enjoyed their farm fresh Gouda cheese after the tour. Here are a couple pictures.

Jason had the girls push feed up to the cows.

I work hard to keep a clean house, but just when I get a room cleaned up the kids build a fort and mess everything up. I'm sure every mom can relate.

Amelia in the kitchen, notice all the animals and blankets shoved under the computer desk.
I had a garage sale last week and the kids used my totes for walls.
This is Ethan's house.
