Camping in Saratoga, Lander Fly-In, and First Day of School

Laura just started first grade and really loves it. She has two wonderful teachers that team teach. One of them hugs each child and says a word to them as they line up in the morning to come into class. She also has a ranch 30 miles out of town which she takes the kids to on a field trip in the spring. The days have been so warm and sunny we try to walk home every day now that Laura is at the school closest to our house. Today we picked plums and ate them all the way home. Yesterday Laura lost one of her top teeth at gymnastics. She is also playing soccer.

Ben started preschool and also loves it because, "no babies go there." He took his first field trip the other day to the apple orchard and had a great time. He is going to the same preschool Laura went to called Tiger Tots. It's in conjunction with the high school and students interested in Early Childhood education help out the wonderful teacher Miss Jill.

Here are some random pictures from this fall.

Girls day out: Holly and Kathy went fishing at.... the secret fishing spot.

Latest outdoor craze: hiking in Spidey Man undies and flight jacket.

Kathy's friend Libby visited Lander for the first time. She flew from San Francisco to Jackson where we had a great dinner out on the town before driving to Lander. "World Famous" Cowboy Bar in the background.
Jackson Airport is the only airport in the lower 48 inside a national park (Grand Teton).
