Haven't had time to think about it.

Everyone has made it off to school.
Today was Isaac's first day of Kindergarten. I will so miss him. Life has been crazy busy that I haven't had time to even think about my almost baby going off to kindergarten. I watched him go off to class thinking of how excited he is to be big. I do love watching them grow up however, I tend to shed a tear but it didn't happen this time. I kinda felt numb. I'm sure its with everything going on.

Gabe is off to Junior High...and he loves it. It was a little scary at first....figuring out lockers, who to share with, where all the classrooms are and which lunch he has...the works. He went to school with some unknowns but we assured him he will figure it out and everything will be okay.
But it was a little tough for him to "not know" all the details! In the end it all worked out.
He even color coded everything...love it.
There is one thing that was tough for me was, he ate lunch alone for a couple days. Ya, I worry about stuff like that. I kinda want my kids to fit in.

As for Elyse and Bryn they are super cute taking care of each other at school and walking together and now Isaac is at school...they love to pick him up.

14 years and counting.

What a happy day. I have so many emotions running thru my brain right now because we have been thru so much that I really am blessed to have a wonderful husband to share eternity together. As my facebook status says:
Today, I have been married to my best friend for 14 years. My life has been truly blessed to have you in it. And I couldn't have asked for a better father to our 5 crazy wonderful children! Happy Anniversary Greg Bishop! I love you! You are my favorite husband. I'm so excited to be with forever.
then my sweet honey says:

I definitely got the good end of the marriage deal. I'm in love with you even more than the beginning of the experience.

We spent the night out to dinner...outback steakhouse soooooo yummy. It was a perfect night!

Elyse gets Baptized and much more

This little one is so fun to watch when she has something big in her life. The week before she had little lessons to pick out daily in preparation for her Baptism. And she also memorized the 4th Article of Faith (because Bishop asked her to). I love her willingness to do what is right even when she wants to wear clothes that are not modest. I don't know what it is but Bryn and Elyse have this fascination with skimpy clothes.
We are so proud of you Elyse for making this big decision in your life. We know that it will bring you happiness and joy.

Elyse invited Grandpa 2...she loved that. 

And my mom couldn't make it...she was sad, she just had surgery on her neck and wasn't feeling well.


The Chinese students also went home today. We will miss them and will remember the fun experience of having them stay with us but Gabe is ready to have his room back.

We also had my Lewis Family Reunion at Rock Canyon Park. It was fun!


Bryn was super sick. I've never seen her so still.

A Sleeping Baby

When this little guy was first born he was a horrible sleeper. I was a walking zombie for 6 months. I had a few nights that Greg would give me a break (I can hear everything) he had to get creative to find a way for me to not hear this little guy. And now he sleeps 14 hour night sometimes longer.
Once I took this shot he woke right up.
He is one light sleeper.
I also love the old look of this photo.

Beckam is 1

Its always said that time flies and it does. This baby is 1. He is so loved so hugged and so happy. He brightens the mood of everyone in this home. The kids ask me to make him laugh all the time just because he makes us smile and we love to hear his laugh.
He loved eating his cake, their was no holding back, he stuck those fingers and even his face right into it.
