A second grader, a reader, and a 3 month old

Today was Ethan’s first day of 2nd Grade!  I really can’t believe it.  I feel very old today.  He was so excited to go and see his friends and be able to use his new backpack.  All of the kids have the same type of backpack and so this year he wanted one too.  What a cute kid.  Tybee and I sure did miss him this morning.  It was awfully quiet.

A couple of weeks ago, Ethan finally discovered that he enjoyed reading.  All it took was finding the right book.  Who knew the right book would be the Book of Mormon.  I suggested to him that since he can read, he should be reading the scriptures on his own everyday.  He was so excited and wanted to start right then.  That first day he spent a couple of hours reading nonstop.

On Friday, Tybee turned 3 months old….look at those chubby cheeks and rolls on her arms!  They are just way too cute to resist!
