Permitted to have fun...

Wow, I can't believe it has been so long since I last updated this blog. I can't even say that I have been extremely busy. More likely just unmotivated, or lazy. As you can see, it hasn't been without some fun times though.
In August, Trev turned 15 and was immediately off to the DMV to get his learners permit. The test was hard with a bunch of random knowledge questions, but Trev passed it on his first try. He had never actually driven before that day, so when we got home to some safe/quiet roads we got him behind the wheel. 2 months in, and he is doing pretty good, even with the stick shift.

The next week, school started for both boys. Trev is in 9th grade, officially in High School. Tye is now attending the U of U. He drives to the Trax station on school days, and I am not quite sure he enjoys the ride, but it is nice to not have to drive his new car all the way up there. Yes, I did say new car. Finally after years of driving the Sunbird, he has his own KIA Forte.
For labor day weekend we (Brit's family and ours)headed up to Park City for some fun and relaxation. Trev and Marc did the zipline. We shopped at the factory stores. Spencer went for his first swim. The weather was so nice, it was a great weekend.

In mid-September Marc had a layover in Orlando, so Trev and I joined him. We went to Sea World for a couple of hours and then layed out by the pool. Of course getting home from Orlando is never easy, so Trev and I spent an extra night there and came home early the next morning. We missed out on the evacuation and fire on the mountains in Herriman.

The end part of September, Brit had a 2 day school trip to Evanston to work at the State Hospital. She needed someone to watch Spencer, so I decided it would be easiest to go up there with her so that she didn't have to leave him home. I only had to stay the first night and then Jacob came up for the second. There really isn't much to do in Evanston, except go to Wal-Mart, so that is what we did. Spencer is such a happy, well tempered baby.

In early October the Titans were playing the Broncos in Tennessee. Marc had never seen the Broncos play in person and Trev has wanted to go to Nashville to see the Titans play at home. Spoiled Rotten and Marc decided that it was the perfect opportunity for both of them to go and see their teams play each other. They sat on the 30 yard line, a couple of rows from the field on the Titans sideline. Sadly for Trevor, the Titans lost. (They gave the game away to a crappy Denver team.) The trip was lots of fun for both of them anyway.

Brittany is working hard in school this year and making sure Spencer is well taken care of. I have watched him a couple of times this month, and enjoyed every minute of it. He was a little sick (cold) this last week, so I got to spend 2 days with him at Brits place. Of course I have to take my camera and take pictures of his cute little face. He has a few little Halloween outfits, so I put one on and had some fun.

Do you think he will make a good pilot? Last week was reality town for Trev at school and he got to pick what he wanted to have as a career. They spend the morning doing all the things adults have to do and learning how to manage their money. He was a penny pincher, and still had money left at the end. (all fake of course) I hope that he really does that when he faces the real world. He was one of the winners for the best dressed.
