Hailey went out on her first group date last night and took the perfect person as her "date"--Taylor!  Aren't brothers the best? :) Torsten took Hailey's friend as his date.  
Last night I started to get sentimental as I realized that soon this 3some will be splitting up when Torsten leaves home.  Currently they go every where together, sing the national anthem at all the ball games together, dance at stake and school dances together, attend music camp together, etc.  I realized the other day that this year I had 4 kids at the highschool: Taylor a Freshman, Hailey a sophomore, Lily, our exchange student a junior, and Torsten a senior! It's been a busy full year with all my kids at home.  Changes and new adventures are on the horizon.......deep breath......

Today, Leif came home from preschool and proudly showed me the little watering can he chose from the preschool "store".  He was sooo happy about it.  "Mom, now we can plant the garden!!!!"
  We cleaned the garden spot up last week and I guess he is excited to plant something.  I love it!  :)

There has been a game of Monopoly being played in this house for DAYS.  Rather than go bankrupt we just have a complicated debt register and often the rich guys decide to "donate" money to their poor tenants.  We have the Idaho version, so during one game I owned Sun Valley, Hell's Canyon and ISU.  So fun!
