A couple of weeks ago Vance had to do a seed collection. We found some seeds and he even got his Aunt Mandy and Grandma Jeppson's help getting enough seeds for the project. He collected a sunflower, lemon, tomato, hollyhocks, carrots, spinach, and apple seeds.I offered to help him get more, but since he only needed 6 and we got 7 he thought that was sufficient.

Well, my Tanner is now six. He is a funny kid and we are grateful to have him as part of our family. I shared these pictures on facebook, but wanted to share some favorites on here as well.
The kid is a little ham when he wants to be.

I asked Tanner what his favorite Piano Guys song was and he told me it was "Michael vs. Mozart" so that is what is playing on his slideshow of pictures over the last year. Tanner is quite the kid. He is brilliant and yet his strong emotions lead him to be defiant and stubborn too. I am still trying to figure out the best ways to help him learn and grow are. I probably always will be trying to do that. One thing for sure is that I love this kid to pieces.

We were bless to have my brother, Glen visit us this week from Idaho while he had a couple days off work. He convinced Stephen to play video games with him while he was here. (He really had to twist Stephen's arm...cough, cough...uh no.) Poor Glen had a cold while he was here. I felt bad for him, but I'm glad he came.

Here is a picture taken by my younger sister Rosemary. I added the text. Only afterward did I realize this is probably a good quote for Vance because he is always worried about getting things done and moving onto the next thing that he forgets to enjoy the moment. :)

We made it through the first week of school. For Tanner that meant going Monday with me, Tuesday he had his assessment, and then starting school normally on Thursday. He was so excited to ride the bus. Here are he and Vance getting on the bus on Thursday. He said that was his favorite part of the day.
September is a big month for birthdays in Stephen and I's family. We kicked off the birthdays yesterday with my nephew. He had a cute train cake.
