No new pictures but I thought I would catch everyone up to date just a bit.

Jason passed his test last week with flying colors, 850 out of 900 points. All I can say is he is WAY more studious than I am. I don't know if I have the discipline to study like he did the last few weeks. He is headed up to the mountains this weekend to scout for deer before the mussle loader hunt begins on the 23rd of the month. He was supoosed to go with a friend but he backed out so he is going alone. I hate having him out in the wilderness by himself, especially overnight but he insists I shouldn't worry. Ronna, a little help here... :)

Cassidy and Zack are loving school and have made all sorts of new friends. Cassidy has "the meanest teacher" according to all of her older friends but she loves her so I am happy about that. Zack is enjoying Kindergarten (school lunch and recess are his favorite parts). He is so worn out and tired though. He has fallen asleep on the couch, the minute he gets into bed, and on Jason's lap in sacrament meeting. We have them in bed by 8:15 or 8:20 but I still have to wake him up every morning to go to school. Hopefully he gets used ot his new schedule soon.

I have an interesting bunch of students this year and am getting used to all of their different personalities and trying to get my classroom management set up. My new job share partner is brand new to teaching so she is a bit nervous. She is too cute though and I think we will have a great year. I am going to take sub jobs here and there on my days off to make a little extra cash. My first one is on Friday at the kids' school in 6th grade so we will see how that goes. I am only on the sub list for my school, the kids' school, and Roy High, Jason's Uncle Dale's school. I think I will only sub maybe 3 times a month so I get a day off here and there. All I have done on my days off is clean and do laundry so far. Of course.

Other than that, not much to report. We are enjoying watching the kids start their soccer season and will post some pictures of that soon. Jason and I did celebrate our 11th anniversary on Saturday. We went to dinner and a comedy club in Ogden and had a lot of fun. He gave me a new camera, that I haven't learned how to use yet, and I gave him 11 things that he loves (Henry's Rootbeer, chocolate, Itunes gift card, etc.). I am sooooo creative aren't I. :)

Hey, It's me Stephanie. I feel your pain with the hubby out hunting. Myne is gone for over a month to guide, and hunt for himself too, in Wyoming. It worries me cause I never really know where he is and there is no cell service. AAAhh. Your kids are so cute. Someday we need to get together for lunch or something.
See ya,

Happy Anniversary! I don't think we want to know the whole list of things you gave him! LOL

Congrats to Jason for having almost all the brains in the family!

Hiya! Yeah, I've lived here for 8 1/2 years now. Simon is from here. I was only supposed to be here for 3 months! It's fun that you have a blog. It's such an easy way of keeping in touch. Your Cassidy sure looks like you. You have a beautiful family, and I'm certain you are an awesome teacher!

Oh, and happy anniversary, too! You're old-timers now!
