And our life in Utah begins…

August was an eventful month! We were finally getting settled into our new house (moved in at the beginning of July) and the boys started school! By boys I mean Nick and Jonah. I didn’t think I would get emotional about Jonah going to kindergarten┬ásince he has already been in Italian school for two years, but I found myself a little teary eyes as I watched him march off with his class. Cute boy. He was so excited that all the kids would speak ENGLISH! Check out all the Mom’s taking pictures, too cute.

Sadly, I did not get a photo of Nick on his first day back to school. (And if I had managed to snap a photo he may not have allowed me to post it, in his words “what am I, 5?”) But here is a photo he took from the train station on one of his first days commuting. Nick was willing to take an 1.5 hour commute on the train (each way) in order for us to live in a nicer area and a house that we both liked.


Before school actually started, they had a school fair that we went to. The boys enjoyed it. Popcorn, balloons and games, what more could a kid need?

We decided it would be a worthy investment to buy a membership to the kids museum/dinosaur museum/ farm (Thanksgiving Point) that is 5 minutes from us. And so far, the kids have LOVED it.

This photo is hard to see, but Jonah is going through lot’s of layers of bungees, it is super fun.

And the joys of home ownership have begun….we have already replaced the dishwasher and built a pergola out back. When I say we I mean Nick.

I have to keep these energetic boys busy so they’ll sleep through the night! Or sometimes pass out in the living room in the day…haha.
