We Voted Early Ballot










Today we VOTED! We have been learning about voting in school, and wanted to give the kids a first hand experience. Chris and I knew that waiting until voting day and taking six children along, would, probably not be a good thing. So, we went today! The kids had so much fun! There was a line, but only a 15 min wait. We were able to show the kids the ballot and how you fill in the circle for who you pick. Abi and Caleb thought it was so cool to see the names McCain and Obama on the ballot. Abi was able to put Chris' ballot into the counter and Caleb put in mine. "I voted" stickers for everyone was an extra bonus! Now the kids can't wait until voting day to see who will win the election! I love home schooling! (Grace had fun until we walked outside in 45 degree weather and had to get her picture taken!)

Update on the Bunch

We are all doing great. Just no new pictures to post. I think Chris and I are going to early voting tomorrow, since we are planning to take the kids. We have been learning about elections. So the kids are excited to see how it works.

This Friday is Reformation Day!!! Here is an article about it... http://www.worldmag.com/articles/1291

Fall Sports have Ended







Fall Sports have come to an End. We have spent A LOT of time at the sports fields this year. Each of the kids have done a great job. We are all glad for a break, but we know when spring comes, they will be excited to start again! Way to go kids!

Visit with Aunt Kendra









My sister came to visit us this past weekend. Here are a few photos from her visit. Hanging out at home, at the fields, and at the airport.

Recent Drawings

Abigail and Caleb submitted drawings for my company's safety week. Caleb drew a crane lifting a skid of blocks while a man makes sure no one walks underneath and Abi drew a proper technique for lifting items in the office.

Then there is a random buccaneer that Caleb drew for me this morning.



Kids Pictures from September 2008

More Pictures... these are all by Caleb (he tends to draw more than the other kids). The picture of the biker who looks as if he is about to slam into a mac truck is, according to Caleb, a picture of what daddy looks like riding his bike.




Kids Pictures from August 2008

These are all pictures by Caleb except for the last Underdog picture which Abi drew. Enjoy!

Last Images from the Reeder Visit







Here are the last images I have from the Reeder visit. The last 20 Min's. of our visit, really. I love the feet photo. Riley's feet are on the left and Hannah's are on the right. Never again will their feet be this small. Very cute!
