"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

2nd Grade Already??!!
To be completely honest with you.....I LOVE having my kids at home with me. I miss them when they're in school. Summer-time and off track times are the best! Makai's school just changed their time this year so they don't start until 9am and don't get off until 4pm....that just seems like a WAY LONG day at school.... Makai goes to Hayden Peak Elementary and they are year-round...I'm not a fan of year round school, especially because the track he's on makes his vacation times different from his brother and all his cousins. Makai, on the other hand LOVES school and all his friends and is so excited when it's time for him to go to school.
Makai was all set for school this year thank to Gramma Tea. Ova and I bought him some pants, but that was about it. We woke up on Saturday morning and there was a HUGE pile of clothes on the living room floor. Tea woke up bright and early and took Makai garage-saleing and to the DI. She's the queen of bargain shopping and she pretty much always hits the jack-pot! Majority of my kids clothes come from the DI, and you'd probably never be able to tell!! :) All his clothes for 2nd grade cost only $40! Gotta love it!
Last night before we went to bed, Ova gave Makai a father's blessing. Blessed Makai to be smart and obedient, blessed the teacher to be patient and kind.... it was a very nice and special blessing and a great way to prepare him for this new adventure he's starting.....2nd grade!
