First Day of Preschool!

Well, preschool has started back again. I'm actually very glad for the structure again. My summer was so crazy that I'm so looking forward to Fall! The kids were so excited for preschool to start again. They've been asking me all summer when they could go to preschool again. I'm very excited too! I've had so much fun seeing the kids I had last year writing their names, cutting well, and knowing what to expect in preschool. And I'm excited about all the new kids I have this year and how much they are going to learn. One of the greatest things about teaching is seeing children learn, grow, and change. This will be a great school year!

Burrahm Family Reunion 2008

Because my immediate family is so huge, we have to have a family reunion to get everyone together at the same time. This year we went up to Paradise, UT to a cabin and spent the weekend boating, talking, and playing games. We missed most of the boating, but we still had a great time. The kids loved being at the cabin. Connor cried when we left. (When is he NOT crying though? :) ) Thanks for organizing everything John!

Girls Camp

I had so much fun at Young Women's Camp this year. I love all of the girls that went and we all had so much fun together. I will miss it next year when I'm not there. Camp director has probably been one of my favorite callings in the church. Here are a few pics of the fun time that we had up at Camp Koholowo.

This is Anna Lisa. She was in my kindergarten class my very first year teaching. This really makes me feel old. I was so excited to see her.

We had so much fun doing funky hairstyles and coloring our hair with markers.

Carnivale 2008

Dave's family work party this year was a carnival at Thanksgiving Point. We rode the ferris wheel, played on blow up toys, the kids rode a cow train, we ate cotton candy, and we watched fireworks! Oh, the kids also got balloon animals. Well, balloon stuff. Brooke got a cat, Aspen a flower, and Connor a sword. They all popped by the end of the night. It was lots of fun!

Moosehorn Lake Camp Trip

We had the annual Grant family camping trip this week. We had a really nice time. We camped at Moosehorn Lake (see picture above as to how this lake got its name) in the Uintahs and the weather was gorgeous. 60 something degrees. Aaahh... fall will be here soon. The kids and I slept in a camper with a heater so we stayed warm at night. We went fishing, canoing, and hiking. We also ate a lot, slept alot, played Nertz, the kids made a camp belt, I read a book, sang camp songs, and Dave and the kiddos put on a Homestar runner skit. It was very relaxing and fun.
