South Weber Elementary's Top 3 Spellers!

We are so proud of Cambrie! She was in the top 6 spellers of all the fourth grades in the her elementary school. She then went on to participate in the 4th, 5th and 6th grade spelling bee. This was the top 6 spellers from each of those grades. They took the top three and she was one of them. They were all fourth graders which was really neat. She will now participate in the North Davis School District Spelling Bee on the 17th of February. Way to go Cambrie!

Cambrie's 1st Science Project

Cambrie's teacher had all of her students participate in the Science Fair. She had a list of ideas to choose from and she chose to find out which diaper held the most liquid. Luckily I was able to find a similar project on the web and found out how they collected their data. So of course the night before the project was due we began the project. She was great to help cut out a square of the diaper and we measured out the water and let the diaper sit in the liquid for a certain amount of time and then we measured the liquid left in the container. It was fun to do with her. We put together a tri-fold poster of all her results that turned out great. The results showed that Huggies are more absorbent than Pampers or Target brand diapers. It was an interesting project. Good work Cambrie!

I'm a Big Boy in my Big Bed!

Cael is now 2 years old so we decided to take the crib down and try him in a big boy bed. He was so excited! The first week was challenging. With his crib I could just lay him down and he would go right to sleep. He only climbed out of his crib twice and that was because I had asked him too. I wanted to see if he could do it. With the bed we would lay him down and he would be out of his room in seconds, we would take him back in and again he would be out in seconds. This would continue until we would break down and just lay with him. So now we read books and lay with him for a few minutes and life is a lot easier. Hopefully soon he will just lay down without us having to lay with him. But it is fun to see him grow! We can't believe he is two. He is so much fun!

We decided to run up to Cokeville to visit Mom for the weekend. We always take a ride up Pine Creek. It was beautiful and the kids love getting out and seeing the waterfalls and throwing stuff in the river.

Happy Birthday Cael!

Our little guy turned 2 on January 8th! Crazy how time flies! He is so much fun! We celebrated just as our little family on the 8th and then the following Saturday with the extended family. He was thoroughly spoiled! But he deserves to be! :) We love you Cael!
