We did our back to school shopping today! It was nice to get it all done. The kids were so excited about having some new clothes, shoes and backpacks for this year!

We completed the Orem Library's Summer Reading program today. We were able to go and get their last rewards and it has been a great Summer of reading. I think the kids' favorites were the Fudge books.

Beth had another soccer practice this evening. We went to get in the van and found that the battery was dead so we started walking. It was so hot and we were glad that Joey came and picked us up and took us the rest of the way. Joey was able to charge our van battery and so it was all good. I think Beth's team is going to be a great one for her and she's learning a lot.

We made colorful paper airplanes today, along with a lot of other coloring and playing indoors.

The kids were feeling really stir crazy and so we thought we would fit in #24 Family Fun Activity which was a trip to the Hogle Zoo. We got to finally see the dinosaur exhibit that has been at the zoo this summer. Fun robotic dinosaurs throughout the zoo. We also got to see Zuri the 2-year-old elephant do some tricks in the Elephant Encounter show and ride the carousel and train. It was a good day. We drove past our old duplex and it was fun to see that JJ remembered it. I miss that ward and that place. It was a good time for us.

The kids and I woke up with colds. I'm not sure where we picked it up but we did. I think I got the most of it, but we still had things to do today. Beth had her first soccer game of the season. Unfortunately, her uniform didn't come yet, so she just wore a turquoise shirt. But the team looked really good. Beth did really well and even got in there to kick the ball - much better than last year. We are proud of her.
In the evening, we headed to our last #25 Family Fun Activity which was a pool party hosted by JJ's Orthodontist. We thought about not going since I wasn't feeling well at all and the kids were not at their best, but they had really been looking forward to it - so we did it. We had a good time, mostly riding the lazy river around. It was actually pretty fast going and we all had fun.

Unfortunately, our summer colds were worse today, so we stayed home from church. I slept most of the day and I think it really helped. We just finished the Indian in the Cupboard book, so we were excited to watch the movie for family movie night tonight!
And here is my weekly layout:
