This is the Life

We did get quite a bit of school work done in our first full week of school but here are a few of the not-so-academic highlights of the week.
Faith and her friend buried each other in Legos.  Our family room floor is very often covered with Legos that are supposed to stay on the big white sheet, but usually end up spread all over the house.
Cannon with one of his many spaceship creations.
Bethany received her Bamboo Splash tablet in the mail for her tech art class this year.  She's not so much into technology, but she was digging the technology combined with art.
Bethany and Elinor made a big batch of snicker doodles to take to a baptism for her 2nd cousin on Saturday.  This second cousin is the daughter of my closest cousin who recently moved back to Utah from California and we're thrilled to get to see them more often.
Here Cannon was demonstrating the relaxation technique known as "hum-itating".  You stand on your head and hum while meditating.
Clark went fishing with Grandpa Cannon on Friday afternoon/evening and they were wildly successful!
Too bad I don't like fish--we've got a lot of them!
Faith was so excited to lose her second tooth this evening.  At 7 1/2 it is about time these teeth started coming out.
Here was my favorite moment of the week.  Cannon came to me and said, "Mom, I think I'm ready to start piano lessons".
Music to my ears!  So we got out the beginning books and a new notebook did his first lesson.  He has enjoyed his practice time this week.  Fun for us both.

Ok here is how you get around the "fishy" taste...soak it in mountain dew for a few hours and it takes the "fishy-ness" out of it. Then it will taste like chicken. Us fish-haters have to come up with some sort of a compromise. Welcome to the club! ;)
