August! August was quite the month! At least the first week was. First we had Bentley's birthday party! He turned 4 this year and wanted a party with Uncle Brians bounce house. We are so lucky that they own one and let us borrow it. We just let the kids play outside, had cake and ice cream, and then opened presents. It was low-key but the kids had a ton of fun between the bounce house and the trampoline. Bentley wanted a Jake and the Neverland Pirate cake and for whatever reason every store in Flagstaff, Holbrook, and Winslow decided to not stock up on Jake and the Neverland Pirate anything that month. Luckily I had Derek and Alison and my parents coming up from the valley that stopped and got a few supplies. Thank you!
The next day we blessed our new little Ella in church. Kyle gave a beautiful blessing and Ella cried. All went well :) Steven, Chris, and a few of their kids made the venture up as well as Kellie's family and Mike and Trish. We have such supportive and awesome families- we need to do better at that!
The following Wednesday was the kids first day of school! Macy is in 2nd with Ms. Alley, London is in Kindergarten with Mrs. Allison, and Bentley has moved on to 4 year old preschool with Mrs. Ceccareli.
