EMBERLY'S FIELD TRIP TO GTNP

Emberly's Class had the opportunity to go to
GRAND TETON NATIONAL PARK!
...and the best part was...
I GOT TO GO WITH HER!
She was so excited; she told her gymnastics class:
"My class is going to another COUNTRY on a Field Trip!"
(I think she made County or State, but it sure made her
look like she doesn't get out much.  LOL)
 
Emberly really wanted me to ride on the bus.
We played Tic-Tac-Toe on the way.
She won!
 
We went to the Moose Wyoming Visitor Center.
Ranger Millie was the BEST!
She taught us so many cool things about GTNP
and the amazing animals that live there.

{Idaho Falls TEMPLE Openhouse}

I had the opportunity to take my children to the Idaho Falls Temple Open House.  The temple has been closed for quite some time and under extensive renovation.  It was so wonderful to take the kids through and let them feel the Spirit in the House of the Lord.  It was also so fun to see all of the updates and how the building had changed.
(Rob wasn't able to come with us because he was home sick in bed :( )


Emberly's HIGHlights

Emberly has wanted Turquoise Highlights in her hair for about 6 months now.  We decided if she was a "big, brave" girl and slept in her own bed every night for two months that we would let her highlight her hair.  She was determined she could do it, and she did.  This was a major accomplishment for her, and she was so excited to get her reward.  LOVE YOU, Brave Sister!










Jarom's AQUATIC CENTER Project

Jarom's 6th Grade Math Class had the opportunity to learn about a potential Aquatic Center coming to the valley.  They learned what types of things would be in it and size specifications.  Then they were able to design and build their own.  Wade Kunz and Jarom were partners.  I was quite impressed with their model.  Good Job, Boys!


Thomas's EXPEDITION YELLOWSTONE

Rob and Thomas went on a school EXPEDITION to YELLOWSTONE!
They were gone from Monday morning until Friday afternoon.
Both of them said it was a BLAST!
We sure missed them at home.

 Lunch at Old Faithful
 
The kids helped prepare and serve the meals!
 
They saw a ton of wildlife while they were in Yellowstone.
Rob said this was the view from the bathroom!

 
Hot Springs



 
I always like receiving the updates from Principal Bybee.

 
There is so much for the kids (and adults) to learn about in this
Amazing National Park.








 Noah the Beaver
(Noah Norton is one of Tom's closest friends.)
 
another update...





 
Quality Time for a Father and his Son






 YaHoo!
***I am so Thankful all of my boys have been able to experience Expedition Yellowstone.  I am also so Thankful that Rob has been able to go with all of them.  I hope Emberly gets the same opportunity when she is in 5th Grade, and I hope I get to go with her!!!
