|Derrick 2nd Grade|
|Samantha 4th Grade|
I arrived at the school to help teachers and the photographers needed help so I helped in the afternoon and received a free package for KayDee. That makes me happy since I like the kids to have at least one picture taken from the school. I think it is exceptional when things work out that way.
We went hunting up Boulder Mountain over Labor Day weekend. Kevin took each of the kids with him each time he went out so they all had one on one with Grandpa and Dad. Kevin's parents were there and some friends to scope out the elk for the rifle season.
Derrick and Samantha each went early in the morning (notice there are no pictures from 6 am) and went on horses. KayDee went in the evening and they went on the 4-wheeler.
Samantha's ride ended up being more exciting than she wanted. The horse shifted and she fell off and then later it reared up as it was avoid climbing over fallen trees. Although she was skeptical that she'd ever be smiling about that situation, the next day she was happy she had a story to tell her teacher and friends at school.
I have to note that I had a great time camping in our tent and cooking on the fire. I bought some cast iron pans and used our dutch oven to cook straight on the fire. Eggs and bacon, lasanga, pancakes, hot chocolate... Kevin would get back to camp and ask expectantly about what I had cooked and if there were left overs for him. That's exactly how I like it!
