Happy 6th birthday to Benjamin
Yes, Kodey and Aleceeya were both asked to homecoming and they looked fabulous. However, the computer with the right software has a horrible virus! Yuck! we are working on getting it fixed. So, pictures will soon follow.
John and I are off to California next week (Oct 8-11). Our wonderful friends will be watching our kids for us. Next year Kodey can do that by herself. We have a wedding to attend at the San Diego temple and two days at Disneyland planned. We will also visit Santa Monica pier and Malibu beach. I am so excited. John and I have never done something like this before. I mean, Disneyland, without the kids??? We are also flying which is saving a ton of time and money.
Now, I just have to finish getting everything ready here. That is no samll feat but, I don't want anyone to work to hard here. It is tough enough taking care of 15 kids but meals too? People keep commenting on our "second honeymoon"...sorry everyone, we never had a first honeymoon. Things have been a hopping in the Thill home. I had the opportunity to sub for 2nd grad and kindergarten so far this year. I have 2 more sub jobs for kindergarten in October. I love subbing and really enjoy the teachers I work with and the kids. School is cruising right along too. I am taking my science final on Monday then, just a few tasks to complete. I will have finished all 13 credits for this term. Next term, hoping to complete 24 credits. Let's all hope and pray that Math isn't as hard as I think it is going to be.
John is still working at the Utah Foster Care Foundation. He absolutely loves his job and we have been able to help at some training classes every once in awhile. That is so cool. He is still the Elder's Quoroum President and finds so much joy in working with the men in our ward. He is such an amazing man! very involved in our family life (which we love!), especially after so many years of not being around often. He really helps our family run smoothly and we love seeing him as often as possible.
Our kids are all doing so well. Josh is getting ready for his 2nd year on the wrestling team. He really wants a varsity slot. He is finishing up his Eagle Scout papeerwork, tonight. Kodey is getting ready for ACT's and UBSCT testing. Our teenagers have all qualified for a fantastic scholarship and between that and their pell grant will totally be set for college.
Our scout boys are really working hard too. Jacob earned 9 pins and his Webelos badge, Nathan his bear, Andrew his wolf, and all 5 boys earned a family camping, hutchings museum, this is the place, hogle zoo and a BSA family scouting badge. They love scouts and are working hard (it helps that I am a den leader). They are all looking forward to starting wrestling this fall.
The girls are having a good time being girls. They are an active group and love doing hair, nails and playing house. They are doing well in school and at home
Our 3 youngest keep us busy. Kindergarten is going great and preschool is too. Katie is a little stubborn but I think stubborn is good sometimes.

Nathan is so cute all dressed up in his armor. And the girls look beautiful in their homecoming dresses. I never can get over how much you guys are doing all the time. Do you ever sleep? :)
