The first day of school. It brought me lots of anxiety thinking about how to get everyone to where they needed to be and home again, but things have settled down. Braelyn felt left out, so she got to wear her backpack along with her brother and sister. Kirsche is in all-day kindergarten and loves it. Ethan is a 3rd grader in Mrs. Wheeler's class and doing great. Part of me hopes this year will go by fast, and part of me wants it to stay this way forever.
Just before school started, the office had a BBQ at Blacktail boat dock on Ririe Reservoir. Everett was working, of course. (I promise, I really do have a husband!!) The kids and I waded in the water a bit after dinner. It was a great evening and a good chance to socialize with those I work with without the usual hustle and bustle of work.
Kirsche enjoying the water.
Reed's Dairy has some pigs. This is about half of the litter!
This little guy was so cute! He would break away from the litter and come to the fence to chew on Ethan's fingers, then scurry back to the safety of his litter. He was definately more brave than his brothers and sisters who wouldn't venture too far from mom.
I thought Kirsche, who loves pigs, would be the first one to step up and pet the little runt the farmer caught for us, but she just couldn't get past the smell. Believe it or not, the pigs smelled a lot better than the cows!
