Harris Highlights

We ran down to St. George a couple of times to soak up the sun. We can always kill a few hours at the red hill inventing new homes for ourselves. Gretchen said, "let's pretend we're all nomadic hunters so we won't fight." Perfect.

Oh Dishwasher!

For some reason this dishwasher is giving us super fits! Super fits.  How may people does it take to set a dishwasher?  So far, we've had four manly men. I'm starting to think blonds could do better. For some reason it goes wonky and won't close because it is off balance.

I still manage to heave ho it to the left so I absolutely, positively do not have to wash a dish!

Becket's 2 Paragraph Essay

Becket had to write a 2 paragraph essay as to why her wanted to be in the tech club at school.  I thought he did a pretty good job.

Donuts in the Driveway

Our 3rd annual Donuts in the Driveway was held Monday, September 29th. We had a surprise thunderstorm about 3PM-4PM that afternoon and it had me laughing.  Oh the irony!

Everyone worked as a team, including Mat's parents who are just salt of the earth and always willing to help.

Preparations:

Gretchen turning these logs into donuts and making necessary signs to welcome our guests.

It sprinkled off and on, but not enough to dampen our spirits.

It was a fun time, and I'm glad I could catch up with all of the people I love.
