only in Utah

Oliver had nothing but great things to say after his first day of school. He said recess was AWESOME...and that he made a friend. He is nearly impossible to get anything out of. But randomly throughout the day he has mentioned stuff that he remembered.

At singing time each child got to pick their favorite song. Oliver kinda rolled his eyes and said they sang a lot of the "insy weensy spider" (i have no idea on the spelling of that). He chose I Am A Child of God and they whole class sang along. Hummmm. I told him that that was a church song and that maybe everybody wouldn't know it...but he said "well mom...it is my favorite song". I am proud of him for that. But seriously...it would have been a duet if I tried to sing that in my kindergarten class.

He had to decorate a cutout of a boy to look like him as homework before school started. We cut up an old shirt and old pair of pants to make it look like it was wearing clothes. He said his teacher laughed when she saw it..."because it was so awesome". I love that boy.

I on the other hand kinda felt like a grown up today. I had to actually wake up...put on a bra (sorry people) and brush my teeth. Hahaa. It was however way easier keeping up on the housework when I was already up and ready for the day at a reasonable time.

After school I took Rob, Oliver and Jack to the dinosaur museum. They had 2 dollar Tuesdays all month and I couldn't pass up the chance to go...since the regular admission is 10 dollars for adults and 8 dollars for children. It saved us like 26 dollars...or something. The museum was awesome and the boys loved it but it was seriously amazing how crowded it was. I mean I know there are a lot of children in Utah...but to see them all gathered in one place was, crazy. I probably saw 100 pregnant women (that is probably slightly exaggerating but maybe 50). It was a great day.

That is crazy that they sang "I am a Child of God" that is really cute that he wanted to sing that song. I sent Kempton to school for the first time today. I can't wait to pick him up. I think I was more nervous than him!
