July 29, 2008: Today, the kids and I went to the free lunch at the park, then we took Bailee for her Kindergarten testing. She starts Kindergarten on Monday, August 4th. And she is going to be in the all day class! So basically, this is the last week I have her during the day while it's still hot weather. It's her last chance to get the free lunches, and to swim at the outdoor pool, (on a weekday, anyway. I wouldn't attempt going there on a weekend). Time is slipping through my fingers!! But she is SO excited to start Kindergarten. She keeps asking me, "how many more days, mom?" And she did very well on her test today!

July 26, 2008: This is the first time I've gone on a horse ride since before I was pregnant with Ryker! I can't believe he's almost 10 months old, and I haven't gone before now. My dad and I just went for about 1 1/2 hours out at Lakepoint. There's no feeling like running on horseback. I wish I had time to ride more often.

Last Friday, July 25th, we wanted to take the kids camping. But then we remembered how much work is involved, and how much gas costs, so we just pitched the tent in the back yard. They still had fun. Ryker slept soundly in his own bed. I actually went inside around midnight because the wind kept blowing, and in a tent that gets pretty annoying. So Kev and the girls camped out all night.

This year for the 24th, we actually just bought a $10 pack of fireworks and some sparklers, and just did them in the street. But this is the first year we've done it alone, just me, Kev, and the kids! We always seem to have people over or go somewhere for the 24th, so it was a nice change. After we lit ours, we got up on the roof to watch all the fireworks around us and over the valley. Ryker was in bed, of course, I wouldn't dare take him up there. The girls were a little nervous, (so was I, having them up there), but they just stayed on the blanket and held still for the most part. It was a fun night!

Here's Ryker crawling, July 24, 2008. He started when I was gone to camp during the week of July 15-18, when he was 9 months old. He's getting so good at it now! I have to re-child proof my house.

Justin Dalton & I got to ride in the back on one of Kev's flights. I got a little nauseated. It was SO hot in there, and he was practicing his turns. ecckk. Here's a couple pictures from the sky. One is of the Utah Olympic Oval & Fitness Center, and one is our neighborhood.
