Family Home Evening with Cars

Anna had an assignment at school to make a car. It was to help the 1st graders learn about motion (push, pull, etc.) The car body was to be made out of a toilet paper tube, but the rest was up to us. We opted to purchase wheels and axels at the local hobby store. However, Aletta and Rachel wanted to make cars too. We even tried the cars out on a makeshift ramp.

Sara and Clarinet

This fall Sara has started to play the clarinet. However, with the move she found herself far behind her new classmates. She began to practice for at least an hour every single day and caught up. Her teacher even remarked that "if everyone practiced as much as Sara then we would be having 'fun friday' every other day!" She has since caught up and is learning to play very well.

Trip to Cincinnati

After we found out we would be moving to Ohio, the whole family took a trip to see the interesting things to do. We went house hunting as well as to the Cincinnati Zoo and King's Island, a theme park not too far from our house.

Leah's Birthday Cake

For Leah's Birthday Cake she called upon a lady in the ward who used to make cakes professionally. They worked together for an entire afternoon to build a beautiful cake. However when they arrived home, the cake had slid in the trunk and been ruined. She was able to return the next morning (the day of the party) and rebuild it the best she could. It turned out great! The top layer was completely strawberry, the second completely vanilla, and the third completely chocolate.

Leah's Sixteenth Birthday

On July 3rd, 2010 Leah turned 16. However, she didn't celebrate it until the 16th. She had about 20-30 people at her party.

Her father also attempted to pogo stick in the garage.

After a job transfer with General Mills, the 7 Days in Tennessee became the 7 Days in Ohio.

Hope it doesn't cause any confusion.
