Yearly (school) pictures

When the school takes pictures each year I figure it's a good time for me as well, that way I always have an up to date picture of each kid to frame on the shelf.
However I've only taken pictures of Ridge so far since he's the easy one.

Baby lizard surprise

Ridge caught a lizard and kept it as a pet for a few days, then let it free.  Then just the other day he went to his fort and found 5 baby lizards in the aquarium,, guess the one he caught was a mama..

The Rock Show

There is a rock show at the fair grounds in Castle Rock each year that Tawnya's family goes to, Ridge and I have been looking forward to going with them all year.  Ridge did a few extra chores and jobs to earn his own money to spend.  There was a wide variety of rocks and the kids had a blast looking at all of them.  There were two kid games where the kids could get lots of rocks for super cheap, and there were "rock fairies" a few guys walked around the gravel area and dropped rocks for the kids to find.  The kids loved it!

First Day of First Grade

Ridge is now in first grade, he was not at all excited for school but he jumped right back into the swing of things and even rode the bus home. 

 Grandma Wolf had come to visit for the night and thank goodness she was there otherwise Ridge would have been late for his first day. 

Matching PJ's

Grandma Beck got the kiddos matching pj's and they were the cutest little monsters.

Daniel and Ridge camped at Deer Park, they had a good time but didn't hike as long as planned since it was freezing..
