Today was Easton's first day of 1st grade. I kept asking him all week if he was excited and he kept saying, "No what am I going to do there ALL day? I want to play with my friends instead!" Then this morning he woke up and was so excited he kept saying "I am so excited I can't believe school is today!" I have mixed feelings. I am glad to see him back in the structure of school and it will be nice to have the break, but I was a little sad to think of my baby in school all day eating lunch, riding the bus. Okay it took me til about 1:15 to get over it. That is when he walked back in the door this afternoon and started whining.

So we headed off to Soda Springs last weekend to go Huckleberry Picking. Derek is obsessed with Huckleberries and has even tried to grow them in out backyard several times. It was fun and the boys had a blast. Well Cannon did most of the time except when the red ants got him. The boys were playing and all of the sudden Cannon started crying and we asked him what was wrong. Easton comes stollin up and says "Oh he just has red ants crawlin all over him" like it is no big deal. Poor Cannon got eaten alive. They even got in his diaiper and bit his little bum all up. The joys of camping :) I think Mitt had the most fun. We ran him until he was so tired he couldn't keep his eyes open. Now he has a huge blister between his toes. Maybe that will keep him from diggin for awhile! Thanks Grant for directions to the great pickin spot!

We had a fun time at Bear Lake this last weekend with Derek's family. Cannon is not afaid of the water and makes me so nervous. We had lots of fun riding jet skis, the tube, and just hanging out. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa Rice for letting us invade your house for the weekend.
