A little of what the Thompson's are up to.

One of my (many) summer goals - update my blog more often!  Some happenings around here lately:-

 Kate finished reading the Book of Mormon!  her prize was to pick out her own fancy set of scriptures which she loves:)
 Made cute bags for the girls to take to the library, hope we do lots of reading this summer, Sara wants to do a 'chapter book club' got to try and make this happen for her, I'm thinking of treats and reading a chapter from a book then whoever comes can just play for a while, Sara wants each kid to bring their own book and just read, we'll see...

 Hiked to Timpanogos Cave, had this on my summer list of things to do but when my friend said she was going last weekend I decided probably more fun to do it with friends so we packed up 7 kids and off we went.  A little whining on the way up but we made it and the inside of the cave made up for the hike, the kids loved the stalactites and stalagmites and other formations inside the cave, took more pics but because I dropped my phone on the floor in Costco those pictures that need the flash didn't really turn out.

 Painted faces, turns out Kate didn't really like it because she took a shower to wash it off right after I took this picture, Sara didn't even last for the picture!

 1st day of summer break and Kate decided she would give Sara piano lessons.

 Today while Eric and Kate went to see Epic Sara was playing with her friend, they wanted to make crutches for their dolls, sometimes the Internet is a wonderful place, a quick google search and less than 10 seconds later we had a plan, I had all the supplies on hand (now I don't feel quite as bad for storing so much craft junk) and within 30mins each doll had its own set of crutches.
