July Leftovers

Check out Zeya, classic "about to sneeze" shot :)

Zeya picked these flowers and arranged them in Jazzy's hair.  Too cute.  The below pic he added some more foliage :)

We love our friends, the Simpsons.  They are crazier than us: 5 kids in 5 years, and hapai with #6!  Biggest gap between kids: 16 months.  My life is piece of cake compared to that!!

First day of SCHOOL!!

This is it, the long awaited day.  My kids started school!!!  Yippee!  My homeschooling days are over.  Not too sad about that one to be honest :)  The best part, the kids LOVE it.  Love it so much makes me wonder why I ever homeschooled in the first place.  Sigh* oh well, it was a learning experience. 

Zion with teacher Ms. Kelley-2nd grade

Anjuli with teacher Ms. Angeli Palompo (that's right, same name!!) grade 3

Izaiah with Ms. Kagamida, Kindergarten!!

On the first day of school was also Zui's big CFP exam!  But...he didn't end up taking it because the power went out.  Good thing too, since he forgot his financial calculator at home!  Blessings of heaven :)  He took his exam a couple days later and PASSED!  YES!!  So proud of my man :)

Ezra at 7m

This little boy is the love of my life.  Well, I have lots of loves, but this is my heart-throb right now.  Ezra crawls like crazy, pulls to standing, climbs stairs...  I can't believe my baby is growing so fast!!

Zion the Chef

Zion has become quite the chef lately.  He asked me to teach him how to make fried eggs.  Well after lots of tries he is now a pro at turning on the stove, cracking the egg, flipping, salt and pepper...for the perfect fried egg!

Now every morning he asks me, Mom want a fried egg?  We have eaten a lot of fried eggs lately!!  Speaking of eggs... we just realized we have been paying $6.20 for 18 eggs at Costco.  Isn't that ridiculous??!

Stand Up Paddle fun!!

We bought a stand up paddle board with some gift cards and Costco rebates we had.  It has been so fun for our family!  Especially because we can pretty much take everyone out at the same time :)

Happy 4th of July

 Happy 4th of July!!  Zui had to work the Cotton Candy stand so it was just me and the kiddos.  We had just come back from Safeway and had potato chips and strawberries for dinner.  Whatever goes :)

This is Jazzy's drawing, love it!  I love watching those first "people" pictures emerge.
