And the tire is finally back in Kevin's parents back yard after 18 months. Isak is so happy to have it back!

Isak started 1st grade last Thursday and so far he loves it. He came home telling me that "first grade is way cooler than kindergarten" and that "it was awesome!" His teacher is Miss Fullmer, who also goes to our church and I get to see her frequently which is pretty convenient now that Isak is in her class. He rides his bike to school every morning and Kevin or I walk it back. I do miss having him home during the day with me but I'm grateful he can be in school because this kid needs constant stimulation and entertainment. And that can be a little exhausting when I'm out of experiment ideas and I've built more legos than I can count...Lucy had a rough first day with him gone but has since adjusted back to having him gone. She starts preschool next week and will also get help with her speech. She is extremely excited and I just hope that her teacher is ready for her and all her excitement.

Above is Ella, Edyn, and Adalyn, all born within 5 months of each other in 2012. This was the first time they were all three together.
Isak and his cousin Josh loved spending time together and despite being two years different in age always play so well together whenever they see each other.
I loved being at the beach and getting to relax with my kids. Even though it was crazy at times, I really enjoyed taking Isak out to the beach by himself and chasing the waves with him and searching the tide pools early in the morning with my kids. Good memories.
Family Picture that is almost at the beach.
We went to the Oregon Coast Aquarium while we were there as well which our kids always love. This year they had added a whole new kids hands on section and bunch of exhibits for them to go through.
We loved all the colorful fish and these awesome jelly fish.
Edyn loved being able to touch all the star fish and sea anemones.
