First Day of Preschool

London has started her 2nd year of Preschool. She ran to Miss Angie's screaming, "I'm going to school, I'm going to school!" She ran inside before I even had a chance to say bye. I am so glad she loves school and loves to learn. We also have her in the Upstart Program this year as well. It will be so fun to see how much she learns and grows this year.

Summer Update

This picture is taken on our Fish Lake camping trip. We went with our friends, the Debenhams. It was Berk's first trip and he did spectacular! We didn't catch any fish, but had a blast hiking, 4 wheeling, riding in the Debenham's new razor, fishing on a pontoon, and enjoying camp fires. 

We also did our annual Almont trip and were able to visit my Grandma and Aunt. The whole Stitzer family was able to make it this year, even our newest member, Drake. 

Tessa, London, and baby Drake.

This is London's first time fishing. She caught a delicious rainbow trout. We are so proud of her!

I had my clogging recital. Do you like my pants? London says they are made out of trash bags! It was so nerve racking to clog in front of so many people on a super, slippery floor! Thank goodness none of us fell down. 

Berkeley's Summer

Life in our home has been pretty much upside down since we've introduced Berkeley into our lives. This is why I haven't posted anything until now! He has been very fun and full of life. His favorite things are socks (especially dirty ones), running in the hills, and playing with other dogs. 

London loves having Berk around, but she has learned a lot from him too. He has figured out how to 'get her goat' and loves to torment her until she is ready to cry. He is a true boy huh?

His first camping trip was to Fish Lake. He is only about 4 months old in this picture!

Berk is almost 6 months old and is 65 pounds. He should only have a couple more inches in height to grow and around 15 more pounds to gain. I love that he is a big boy. He has learned a lot and is a really good dog. He knows a lot of commands and is fully potty and kennel trained.

We're Getting a Puppy!

This is our puppy! He is 5 weeks old in this photo. Matt and I drove the 5 1/2 hour drive up to Challis ID to pick him out. We tested the puppies temperaments and  this little guy won our hearts. He was the one puppy that would come running if you called him, was happy to go off and explore on his own, didn't mind if we held him in a submissive position, would come to comfort us if we had (pretended) to fall down, and would snuggle up to us. He is so dang cute! We haven't picked out his name officially yet, but we have several names we're considering. We get to pick him up on April 27th to come home. London is going to freak out when she meets him.

He did this 3 different times. He would just come snuggle up to us randomly. I think it was nap time =)

London and Alivia exploring IFA.

This is Sierra. She is London's most favorite babysitter. She put every bow and flower into London's hair to make her become a "princess".
London painted this picture for Abby. Isn't she an amazing artist already? She is always surprising me with her artistic abilities. I love that about her.

She is a pro biscuit maker.

Riding at 5 mile pass with our new motorcycles! It was an awesome day filled with discouragement, frustration, victory, and bruises. I can't wait to get better at this riding thing. However, I did make huge strides on this riding trip.

We had an awesome trip up to Heber Valley to play and hang out with our neighbors. We went sledding and stayed up late playing games. London loved being with all the kids and getting all the attention because she was the littlest one.

London is done. She is cold, tired, and refused to smile for the camera.

Us with our awesome neighbors!
