It was time..

So I thought it was time to at least post something. This fall has been crazy. Once we finished with soccer, school started. Porter is in the first grade. His teacher is Mrs. Leonard. He now gets to get on the bus at home and eat school lunch. Yuck. :) He has also started flag football. And loves to make touchdowns. Porter also had his birthday the 9th of August. He turned six years old. Addie started preschool. She loves it and wishes it was everyday. Grandma helps out by taking our turn at carpooling and takes the kids in the "big RED bus", which is the old van. The kids love it. Cache is a normal two year old and into everything. He is his dad's sidekick. Anything dad likes, Cache likes. Gunner is a hefty 7 month old and learning to crawl. He can get around and into things now. We're going to have to get the gates to the stairs out pretty soon. I can't believe how fast he is growing. He's a happy kid and we are having to much fun with him. Hunting season is fast upon us, which means Josh will be gone most of October. He just went fishing to Montana last weekend and caught 27 fish. Luckily he didn't bring them home. What would I have done with that many fish? I'm still doing the same old thing. Work, kids, clean. But what else do you do? Life keeps us busy. Yesterday I went up to mom and dads to help can peaches. Addie, Gunner and I were there almost the whole day. Levi and Kasandra came a little later than us to help and we were able to do 70 quarts of peaches. It seems like a lot to me. It was fun though. Thanks to Heidi, who moved home last week, I didn't have to worry about Gunner for most of the day. Thanks Heidi. We are so excited to have her home. We hope she doesn't move too soon. The kids love seeing her.

So, I'm trying to figure out the whole blogging thing. There's not a whole lot too exciting going in our crazy lives. Porter has been in soccer this last month and will be finishing the season next week. In August and September he will be doing flag football. That will be interesting, but fun. School will be starting the 20th of August. Porter will be in the 1st grade. I can't believe he is in school. Porter's birthday is on the 9th of August and will be 6 years old. He's excited for his birthday. Addison will be starting preschool this year. She is so excited. She loves to learn and be with other kids. I think she will love it. We went school shopping this last weekend in Park City and bought her some clothes for her to start school. She loves the attention and doing the girl stuff with mom and grandma. Cache is our entertainer and is always making us laugh. He has such a big personality. He has been a little accident prone lately to add to the silliness. It's a good thing kids heal so fast. Gunner is growing like a BIG weed. He's already 6 months old and he's huge. I swear he weighs 20 pounds already. Grandma Furness thinks he weighs more than Cache. I wouldn't be surprised. He loves to be held and smiles all the time. Especially when getting attention. He loves to eat and lets you know when it's time to fill the belly. He has been such a fun addition to the family.
This summer we have gone camping a few times and yard work the rest of the time. I think that has been about it. Where has the summer gone??
