I have to say at this point in my car owning history that I usually have new car fever after (about 2 years) but I’ve been so proud of myself for hanging on to this car for longer than that. I was really trying to hold out for another 2 years, but then on his way back from the Greenwood Ward, Ron passed Breeden Hyundai and calls to tell me that they are offering 0% on 2013 Sonatas. I asked him why he was telling me that, because we were keeping our Sonata and he just laughed and said he was just letting me know. So…he called Mario on Monday to see what kind of deal we could work out. Needless to say on Wednesday the 22nd, we drove to Bentonville to pick up my new Silver Blue 2013 Sonata. It’s amazing!! So many improvements from the 2009 model. It’s unreal. So much better to drive and the upgrades are awesome! LOVE THIS CAR!

We’ve been discussing putting Krennan in gymnastics for a while. He’s all the time trying to do what Sissy does. Well, Mom finally took it upon herself and enrolled him for us. His first day was today and he LOVES it! Coach Mike is his instructor. Krennan’s not very patient and tries to do his own thing when Mike is distracted, but he is loving being out there in the gym with Kaleaha.

August 13th – Bonneville’s Back to School Picnic. She, of course, was at gymnastics and Ron was at his Stake Presidency Meeting, so Mom and I went and took Krennan. We got to meet Kaleaha’s teacher, Ms. Jernigan, and see her classroom and desk. She was so excited to know that she was going to be in the same class with some of her friends from Mrs. Reith’s class. Ms Jernigan took a few minutes to talk about her class rules and explain her homework policy (NONE!) to the parents and then we were free to go eat hot dogs and chips. That was Krennan’s favorite part of the whole night!

Mom and I decided to take the kids to visit West End Park. It's a pretty neat place down by the Arkansas River. We rode the Ferris Wheel and the Merry Go Round and a couple of the small rides that they have and then ate at the Boomerang Diner which is inside an old rail car.
July 29th – Dad’s Birthday. Didn't feel much like celebrating. Mandy made a sign to place on his grave that was very nice.
