Not bad for his first school portrait

I wish that he'd smiled a bit more to show off his missing front teeth, but I'll take it.

Updates

We painted the house! It's gray now.

Oliver is a fan of the summer harvest.


I'm taking part in a felt ornament exchange. My international matryoshka dolls are coming along nicely!

Oliver likes the baby in the phone. Would like to grab him.

Braden told a story as he stuck these stickers on his paper.

Update

Our stake was just split last week. My new ward is taking some getting used to!
I got a new calling: Primary Secretary. I'm not naturally good at secretary tasks, but I welcome the camaraderie of being with the presidency.

It's so tricky to figure out a ward from scratch. We have so many callings for teachers and cub leaders and we only know about half the members of the ward. Add to that the fact that there are several other organizations that are trying to use the same membership pool to fill their various positions and you have your work cut out for you.

I hope that my health cooperates. I'm always so fatigued that I don't like to commit to things. But I have a little hope because I just started thyroid hormone supplementation. My thyroid numbers are within normal limits, but just on the edge, except for my thyroid autoantibodies; those are 23 times the normal limit.
So I'm in the beginning stages of Hashimoto's. It's really the best autoimmune disease to have, so I'm just thanking my lucky stars for that.

Wish me luck!

Kindergarten!

Today was Gideon's first day of school! He was so excited. I asked for a hug while we waited for the bus and he ran over, kinda tapped my hip, then ran back to stand on the curb.
Braden tried to board the bus twice, and was sorely disappointed to learn that he won't get to ride the bus until he's five.
