Vernal Derby...

This post is a bit late.  But better late than never.
On July 31 Grant and I took the boys to crash derby.  It was lame, but we had fun.  It was the first time for Jayce and Alek.  They thought it was awesome to see cars hit each other...ON PURPOSE!!!  They both want to do it now when they are old enough. 

Grant likes his cotton candy...

A new year, a new school

The day came and the day went.  And it wasn't near as bad as I expected!!! 
Jayce and Alek are officially middle school boys.  They are loving the change in pace and all the friends they are making.  Out here our middle school covers a tri-county area so they are getting to know people from all over. 
They love that they have lockers and that the lunch room has "McDonalds style" seating.  The homework hasn't been to bad YET!  But they seem to be ok with having homework (for now). 
I am very proud of how well we have all adjusted to middle school life.  It has been a fun change and not near as scary as I thought it would be. 

The Harvest

I am just so excited that our garden did as well as it did this year.  I had to take pictures of some of the fun things we picked. 

This is our prize tomato.  It was about 4 pounds.

Canning, canning, and more canning...

I remember as a little girl my mom canning vegetables and fruits we had grown through the year.  It seemed like such a process, but the end result was always so amazing to me.  Now it's my turn and I still have the same feelings.  It's a huge process, but I love the end result.
Over the weekend I canned 16 bottles of salsa, 18 bottles of zucchini relish, 19 bottles of corn, 7 bags of freezer corn, and 40 bottles of applesauce.  My feet hurt and my hands have a strange new tint and smell to them, but the end result was this...

Some of the canned goods.  I am still trying to find a place for the rest.
