Mackenzie started Kindergarten this year... man does she LOVE it! Even more exiciting was getting to be a "junior driller" with the Newport Knights Drill Team (she was invited by Ned's friend Brittany from the ward) and getting to cheer on Uncle Ned at the football game. There's nothing better than getting to use real pom-poms for something other than playing dress-up... just ask Mackenzie.
Before my brothers and sister-in-laws left for school we had a great day in Ma and Pa's backyard. Carson, Mackenzie, Sydney, Spencer, and Ethan had fun eating and jumping all over everyone - Tyler did too, only his day wasn't quite as awesome after he fell and scraped up the whole left side of his face. Ella's picture pretty much summed it all up... happiness and enough cheeks for the whole family!
