Littlest Nursery Goer

          This little one is officially in nursery, and has been for about a month. He is beginning to be more verbal and will repeat what I ask him too, "say duck.." Captain is still good to entertain himself but is a BIG distraction at Book of Mormon or Family Home Evening time when he is running around playing with the ball and all the other children just want to watch him and laugh. It is fun to watch him though, especially when he hears us sing and conducts the music. He is still the best baby hugger ever and doesn't get upset very often unless you take something away from him. He likes jumping on the trampoline, playing in the sandbox and being read to. He wakes up happy and has at least three dimples- two in the regular spots and one higher up on his cheek. This is my only blond-blue eyed child and it suites him well. Love you Lincoln!
Feel asleep looking at a book-  hard to be 1 1/2 yr old

Visit From the East Coast

Grandpa Ogarek came out for a visit last week to ring in the summer and brought along two stowaways in his suitcase. Two of my sister's children- Scarlett (5yr) and Owen (8yr)- came to enjoy some cousin time. With a house of ten people we were pretty full but also full of fun. Grandpa graced us with his magic disappearing foot trick during the talent portion of Family Home Evening and even won the trust of Dimples enough to have him sit on Grandpa's lap for books. Among other things we made trips to the children's museum, playground, library, and church gym to get out some energy but Aunt Alana also put them to work pulling rocks out of the garden. Hopefully it was worth it. Grandpa pitched in too and now at least that job is complete. We look forward to my dad joining us in Fort Collins permanently in about a year or so after he sells his house in North Carolina. 

Oh the Fun you can have with a Box!
