Effusive Eli:

Eli is the proud owner of a "golden tooth." After visiting the dentist recently Eli was proud to show EVERYONE including strangers the visual proof of my failings as a mother. He has a silver filling that he's sure will fetch him a 20 dollar reward when the tooth fairy visits in a few years. When his cousin wished for a silver tooth too and wondered why Eli got one? Eli replied, "because I was so good at the dentist."

I guess that's better than Eli crying over a silver tooth though. When Eli's little cousin gave him a fat lip, he cried and cried because he thought he looked ugly.

When the same little cousin was crying face to face with Eli he said "mom, get him out of my face! He's crying in my face." Crying children stress Eli out way bad.

Eli's grandpa gave him and his cousins pocket knives on Sunday. It was about the best day of their lives. To showcase the wonderful attributes of the knives Brooklyn and Eli put on an infomercial. Some of the things that you can accomplish with the knives are sawing wood, cutting things, and killing bears.

Croquet and Bubbles

A Sunday at the Broughs.

The family minus Stewart and Carl. Sad for us.

Park City

For the 3rd (or 4th) year in a row we went to Park City with Stewart's family. We stay in a condo and swim and play and shop. Vacations are the BEST!

Kindergarten Baby

Eli started school on August 4th. He was pretty excited about it...if you asked him on the right day.

He was very excited about it when I picked him up but by the evening he had determined that school was boring.

Everyday he asks if he has to go to school today and everyday when I pick him up he's happy and excited and had a great time.

He has made a few friends and likes his teacher. I'm going to be volunteering in his classroom on Tuesdays. I think this will be a successful year!

Notice how cute Nathan looks. (Bottom right) it's pictures like this of him that make me want to eat him up. He's just so cute.

We had a fun day at Lagoon. I love these pictures. I have been planning on doing one with just the kids to remind us of our "summer of Lagoon." I think I still might have to do one because I think that these turned out so funny!
