Carter really wanted to play tackle football this year, but we didn't know if he was quite ready for tackle yet, so we had him play flag football. He ended up loving flag football and doing really well at it. It helps that he is the biggest and tallest player on the field. We learned that Carter is definitely tough enough to move on and play tackle football. There were times when we had to call him out of the game and tell him to not be so aggressive and remind him that he is playing flag football and not tackle. It was a lot of fun watching him play and we are super proud of him.

The girls have been going to dance at Julie Moffet ballet school and have been loving every minute of it. Every so often, there is a performance day where we get to go and watch them the last 15 minutes of their class. Christy and I were able to attend both the girls' classes and get to see them dance. Calee is so tiny and so cute. Cambree is so tall and so pretty. They are both so much fun to watch. It is priceless watching them dance and twirl and have so much fun.
Calee's pre-school class got to take a field trip to the Ogden Nature Center last week. I had to be in Salt Lake that morning for work, but Christy was able to go with her. The weather was really nice and the kids got to see a lot of really neat birds and animals. Calee was especially excited to tell me all about the turkeys and the deer. The Nature Center has always been one of our kids' favorite places to visit.

Tuesday was Calee's first day of pre-school. It was really hard to watch our "baby" start school. Christy told her that we were sad that our baby was starting pre-school. Calee said, "Don't cry Mom and Dad!" "Be Happy!" She was so excited to start school and to be going to school with her best friend, Emmy. She also has a little friend named Garrison that is in her class. In fact, I think she has a crush on him, because this morning she picked out her outfit and said, "I think Garrison will like this shirt!" pretty funny! Well, she looked so stinkin' cute on her first day and we are so proud of her and love her so much.
This year we spent Labor Day weekend camping up at Weber Memorial. We have our own little favorite spot right by the river that the camp hosts reserve for our family and all of our trailers. Our friends Bryce and Amanda & their two kids came up this year to camp with us. They brought kayaks and we used them quite a bit up at Causey Reservoir saturday and monday. The rest of the time we spent swimming, playing in the river, tubing down the river, fishing, and playing badminton. We had lots of good food and lots of fun all weekend long. The weather was perfect and Causey was busy, but not too crowded. We have never done much kayaking before, so we were surprised at how fun and how relaxing it was.
