Family reunions are great!

I am noticing that Becca is doing most of the blogging recently. And since she is at Girl's Camp, I thought I would be the one to say how sad we all were to see the Malletts and Wilkins families go, and to see Becca head off to Camp, though she is super excited. Now it's back to the real world--laundry, dishes, cleaning the garage, etc. for a week before we get to go have fun at the Cate family reunion in California! :)


PS there were lots of great pics taken...we'll try to get some up soon.

Summer update

Wow! Since we last posted, we have had 14 extra people come to Virginia, a couple of families move (or get ready to move) out of our ward at church, and have MY BIRTHDAY!!!!! Yes, I am now 12.

So, I said we have 14 extra people come to Virginia. We have the Wilkins ( you can see a link to their blog under FRIENDS AND FAMILY on the side of the posts) here from Utah. So they are staying at Grandma and Grandpa Bristow's house. Even as I type this, my siblings are playing with Abby and Emma and Ben and Lizzie. They are also playing with Anna, Melanie, and Jonathon, which brings me to the next visiting family. The Malletts are staying with us. They have Anna, Melanie, Jonathon, and Ryan, but Ryan is taking a nap right now. (You can also see a link to their blog on the side of the post under FRIENDS AND FAMILY.) Then, we have Bryce and Meg. They came out here from BYU, in Utah. They'll be staying for quite a bit.
So there are our 14 visitors.

Now, it's lunchtime, so I have to go!


P.S.- the Moms are going out to lunch. That's Sarah (cate), Katie (wilkins), Amanda (mallett), Meg (bristow) (I think), and Grandma Bristow! Lucky ducks!!!!!

I've got silly kids

So the kids were busy this morning having a mock trial of their gerbils ... for sleeping before naptime.

Silly, eh?
