We moved into our new house about a month ago. It have been pretty crazy trying to get settled in and having school starting. We love our new ward/neighborhood. There are so many awesome families we can't wait to get to know better. It seems like everyone has a kid or two our kids' ages. Scott and I got called to be CTR 5 B teachers our second week here (there are 3 CTR 5 classes). So we actually teach Emma's primary class. She isn't sure she likes having her mom and dad as her teachers, she keeps saying "it's just so weird." Luckily there have been quite a few Relief Society activities so I have still gotten to know a lot of people.
There have been a few interesting things come up this month. Scott got his Utah BAR Exam results recently. It was no surprise to me that he not only passed, but passed with flying colors. We are so proud of him and excited for him the be sworn in on October 20th. The only hurdle left will be taking the patent BAR ASAP.
Also, my laptop has joined my old cell phone in the graveyard of technology that could not survive baby Logan. I am fairly sure Logan dropped it off of the ottoman (although I didn't see it happen) and so far it has not been able to be saved. The lack of my laptop maybe the reason for my lack of blogging the past few weeks. The saddest part is that I had not backed up our pictures in many months so we lost quite a few pictures. Basically if I didn't post it on the blog or facebook it is lost and considering that Scott is a computer engineer I think that if he can't recover them off of the hard drive, there are very few people who could.
So lets see, I think the only other thing to report is an update from our past few doctor visits. I had a baby-doc appointment on Wednesday. Everything is looking great. This sweet little stinker is very active and kicks like crazy, but at least I know he is doing well. Also I was informed that once the flu season officially hits, children will not be allowed to visit in hospitals, and a ton of other restrictions. It is a little sad that the kids won't be able to visit their new brother in the hospital, but I understand why. We will all be getting all the flu shots/mists this year if we can.
Logan already got his flu mist at his 2 year old well baby check up. He won't be 2 for 3 more weeks, but with all the moving I had forgotten to make him an appointment sooner, so it was either 3 weeks early or a month or so late. I am sure this will come as no surprise to you, but Logan is perfect, the doctor said so. I mean I already knew that, but it is nice to get that validated. He is now 29 lbs and 36.5 inches tall. His height is in the 97th percentile, and his weight is in the 75th.
And just for fun here are a few random pictures that were still on the memory card and not lost. They are all from back in August before we moved.

He totally passed out after church one Sunday

We had one last "pool party" before we moved.

Logan was the life guard


Logan is so cuddly. He loves to make himself comfy places to snuggle in.

Alan's First Day of Preschool

September 9th was Alan Boy's first day of preschool at Eagle Bay. I am very excited about this year for him and to see how much he will learn and grow. Our sweet Alan has always had a harder time being away from his Mommy and Daddy so I was a little worried about how he would do, but with a little rock in his pocket to help him be brave I dropped my excited little man off for his first day of school. He did very well. He needed me (and Logan) to come in with him and help him to hang up his backpack and get settled in. Then we left and he bravely played with playdough. He was a little mad that I was not the first Mom there when it was time to be picked up.
By way of an update on Wednesday Alan was able to go to school without a rock in his pocket.

Emma's First Day of Kindergarten

Emma's first day was actually back on August 24th, but I just now dug out the card reader so I could upload the pictures onto my computer. She was so cute. It is funny how she seemed so big picking out her outfit and deciding how she wanted her hair and then that bus pulled up and suddenly she seemed so small. Emma was very excited to get to ride a bus all by herself, so I let her and then I followed the bus to school and met up with her there.
Emma has always been the fearless kind when it come to thing like school so I had no doubt she would be fine that first day. I think I was more scared than she was.
Now that she has been going for a week I am over my bus fears and Emma seems to have completely adjusted to her new role as my big kindergarten girl.I tried to get a cute pictures of Emma with her brothers on her big day, but they were just so excited that the bus was coming that I couldn't really get them to pay attention.

Emma picked this outfit out herself.

She just looks so little up there.

Ready to conquer the world

So today

while I am still trying to unpack and organize things Emma comes out of her room with a doll wrapped in a blanket and says, "Mom look at this little baby girl who just popped out of my tummy. She is so cute." I said "Oh yes she is very pretty." Then Emma says "It is a good thing I am an Emma Mommy because I was beginning to think we would never get a baby girl, because my mommy only has baby boys." Then Alan chimed in "I have baby elephants in my tummy" Then two elephants fell out of Alan's shirt and he said "oh they just popped out, they are little babies."
Good Times
