Carter and Bryson, Babysitters????

Carter & Bryson love Colter. They are VERY helpful with him. This particular day they got him to sleep on the floor in our bedroom. That doesn't happen very often. I ran to get my camera and by the time I got back, they already thought he had slept too long and woke him up (making Colter very sad). Carter and Bryson are best buddies and have a ton of fun together.

Just like Dad's Farm Days

Cannon grew up on a farm in Idaho until he was 13. He drove tractor and helped with the potato farm all the time. Our backyard has a few trees but mostly weeds. Each week the kids are assigned to pick several hundred weeds. This is not their favorite job, but they do it any way. The Hilderbrands got their dad's tractor so they let us borrow it to take care of the weeds. The kids definitely like this way of getting rid of the weeds rather than using their hands.

Ry driving the tractor.

Cooper at age 7 even got a chance to drive the tractor. Cannon does not think this is too younger because he started driving tractor on the farm when he was 4.

Back to School

Bryson started Preschool with Mrs. Dieu. He loves being "BIG" like his older brothers going to school.

Dane: Kindergaten with Ms. Dupper

Cooper: 2nd Grade with Mrs. Hegabush

Ryland: 5th Grade with Mrs. Weiand

Ok, so I am way behind on my post. The boys all have fantastic teachers and are doing great. In fact, this Friday is already the end of the first quarter and they will have off over 2 weeks for fall break.
