Our Utah grandchildren!

Five of them started school last Thursday and I have some pictures to share!

Not necessarily the first day of school, but close to it.

Katelyn, Jessica, Emily
Jacob and Matthew
And the unschoolers...who still stay home with Mommy.

Making sure she is still the princess!
if you can find him in there
And while we're at it, take a look at these...

Rachel, Jessica, Katelyn, Jacob

Matthew and Kim
Kim looks so much like Kris here.
I had to ask Den, "Is this Kim??"
In her first tennis tournament.
She took 2nd place!

Emily and Ryan

with her little students
And my personal favorite:

Oh my goodness! I loved Rachel's art work! I wonder, did it take long to get it off?
You have a beautiful family, Jill.
God Bless them!
I loved all the pictures (especially the last one!), thanks for sharing them!
All the best,
PS ~ Congratulations to Jessica!

These are great pictures of the Utah grandchildren. They are all so cute! All of the paint on Rachel's legs must have been a little bit of a challenge to get off, but it looks like she had fun. Thanks for sharing!

Dad and Susan said...

So cute and adorable! We loved seeing these. You have a lot of happiness in your life. Ergo, we do too. Love, Dad and Susan

Rebecca said...

Oh no did she get into markers? My little nephew did that this week!

Logan said...

What beautiful children!!! I love Rachel with the markers all over her legs and especially the princess outfit with wings. Great pictures!

Lisa said...

You can just FEEL the EXCITEMENT of the new school year! What BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL & CHARMING little people!

For me this was a nice reminder of how great this time of year is for a new school year. All the growth & oh...the possibilities. NICE POST!

The new school year starts. Mothers are smiling everywhere. That picture of Rachel with the painted legs looks like a picture taken of Katie when she was about the same age. Sounds like a pattern in their family...hummmmmmm.

I just LOVE those kids, even the ones I haven't met!!!! Move to california!!

Kris said...

Oh, it was so fun to see these pictures today Jill! The kids squeeled with delight to see themselves on Grandma's blog! Yes, indeed Dad....Rachel does look a lot like Katie at the age with the same issue going on with the markers. :) I need to try and see if I can find that picture of her and compare the two!

Jill said...

Kris...We have Katie wearing the markers in that video you made for us! That very priceless video we dearly love!

I'm getting a kick out of Rachel's "students."
