20 minutes up our canyon the boys played in snow on Sunday. For family home evening we did "science" as k likes to call it. They looked at ant parts close up and even collected a huge house spider that was living in K's shoes. Not my thing but with three boys I need to get use to it. L brought me a disgusting worm the other day to show me. He was so excited but I couldn't help but be grossed out.

It snowed today. K was so excited to get into his snow suit and play in the backyard. Cars coming down from the nearby mountains were covered in snow. Our mountains were white. We froze this morning at K's soccer game. I'm not so sure I'm ready for this again. I love fall and I feel like we're getting jipped. Hopefully this is a one time deal and we won't see snow again for a while.

Yesterday, September 1, K begged us to take his training wheels off. Of course, we doubted his ability to be able to ride without training wheels, we dreaded the work it would take and all the crying and whining that would come from it, and especially to have to put those trainng wheels back on after all that. Well, shame on us for being so difficult. He hopped onto his bike, Chris let go and that was it, K was riding like a pro. He rode around in circles, up and down the side walk, and hopped off with ease when he was done. Who would of guessed he already had the ability. Children are frustrating at times but half the problem is us as parents. We can be just as frustrating to our children. They wish for us to believe in them, to give them a chance to succeed, to hear them out, and get to know them by giving our time and attention.
