I love this little boy ever so much! He has the most incredible imagination i have ever seen, After school yesterday and after he did his homework he said he was going outside to make some ROCK FRIENDS, I wasn't quite sure what he was saying and then he came in and asked if I could get him the tape and the sharpie and the rubber bands that Dad has, well when he asked me for the sharpie i had to remind him that we don't draw on the walk way to the house or anywhere on the cement, he assured me he wouldn't, so he was outside for quite awhile oh and i forgot to mention he wanted his bag full of sea shells that he has collected every time we have gone to Rocky Point.. So Boyd and I were on the Couch discussing the day (which really there was nothing to discuss)other then our everyday happenings and job finding, and low and behold Oscar comes in with a grin from ear to ear and says " Look guys these are my Rock Friends! Mom this is you because you have hair and Dad this is you cause you don't have hair!!!!! it was all Boyd and I could do not to chuckle out loud but both looked at each other with amazement of how creative our little boy is and how is comes up with the most remarkable things he is truly a gift from our heavenly father and we love him so much there is never a dull moment in the Shill home with Oscar around! we Love you Oscar!
This is me "cause I have hair"
This is Boyd cause "he has no hair"
And these are just little creature's that he made, one is a Fish and Dragon Fly and I'm not sure what the other one is I will have to ask him when he gets home today! I guess I am going to have to find a nice spot for all of his Rock Friends!

Elder Shill and Elder Hewitson celebrating Zac's Birthday! he later said the cake wasn't that great and can't wait to get home and have a Real Cake!
Okay! I am not quite sure this looks as good as what Zac says it was! but it is a corn on the cob covered in Mayonnaise, Butter, Cheese and Chile! he said it is delious! we might have to try this one when he gets back, I will let you know then if it in fact is true!
This is one of his Comp that he hasn't seen since he left the MTC, but Zac never said what his name was! This is after they had just listened to Elder Holland which he said was amazing, I might just post some of his remarks later..
Elder Arnett form Mesa Arizona and Elder Hewitson, Zac said he was so excited to see Elder Arnett!
This is the same guys (Elders) Shill, Arnett and Hewitson just messing around on the Teeter Totter

Well lets just say I truly think my kids were excited to start school! alittle nervous but full of excitement! It all started last night, Hallie trying on different outfits oh my I thought i was going to die, Hannah and I just got to the point were we would say say YES wear that, Hallie couldn't decide if she should wear shorts or long pants and what shirt looked the best with shorts, Hannah was laughing Billy was disgusted and said that he hope Avree would not get to that point, Hannah was trying to remind me she wasn't like that starting Jr. High,I had to remind her she was.. finally Hallie picked out what she wanted to wear and all was good, until this morning and the her undershirt was showing to much skin! (which i am so glad that is important to her) so i reminded her that everything was perfect last night and she would be just fine... Oscar was getting his back pack ready last night and setting out his clothes (boys are so easy) he drew a picture for his teacher that he got in primary with a little saying on it (so proud that he is already doing his missionary work) he was all good to go and was so excited to go to school.. We had a great Sunday afternoon with everyone over and after Boyd got back from his meeting at the Church he asked the kids if there was anything special that they thought they needed extra help with this school year! (I love it when he does things like this) after none of them could think of anything or maybe they didn't know quite yet what they needed he asked them if he could give them a school blessing, He has done this with all of my kids from day one when they started the new school year, for those of you that don't know what this is i will try to explain it is just a Fathers blessings and he blesses his children that they can have a good school year and be strong and avoid temptations that are out there in the world and that they will pick good friends and be good friends to all .. ( I wanted to mention this because if you read the Ensign we are suppose to share some of our feelings on are blog about what we do in our Church for others to read, and plus like you all i wanted to use this as one of my journal also..) sorry this is so long.. then off to bed they went and it was a nice quiet evening, Boyd and I watched the Olympics and was so excited to see the mens swim team win it was so close! Oscar was up bright and early to get ready for school and Hallie was up when her alarm went off (i was her alarm) it was a good morning and I can't wait for them to get home, I will miss them they have been allot of fun this summer and we have had a good time being at home, this summer went by way to fast for us all.. I think i will make some cookies for when they get home today!

Well it's that time of year again, Sunday Camie came over and Oscar was so excited cause he knew he was getting his haircut! He loves his hair short and wanted to get it all ready for school, he always tells Camie that his RAT TAIL is growing in the back and it needs to be cut! He is such a fun and cute boy, I couldn't believe all the hair that was on the ground when she finished! Thank you Camie for such a nice hair cut, now he is ready for school!
Hallie also got a cute Haircut from Camie to start her new year at Junior High, we failed to get a before and after picture , but maybe i will do that the first day of school, so I thought I would throw this fun picture of her and her cousin Lauren, they just got through seeing a movie in 3 D and these were the glasses they got! I can't believe school is starting I will miss my kids we have had a fun summer and it went by way to fast..

This is Elder Shill's zone, they all decided to go on a hike for their P-day and well to make a long story short, Zac decided to take two other missionaries and try to go a faster way and to see who could get to the top the fastest! Little did he know that after getting to the top first and then trying to figure out how to get down well they were lost for six hours climbing and crawling through mud and being alittle scared (well not Zac of course he was having a great time) they finally made it down six hours later and ten miles away from the rest of the group!! Zac said it was the " BEST"
So Pretty I never would of dreamed that it looked like this..
Were just glad that all was well and he made it down safe.. Zac said the only thing that would of made it better was if they would have got to spend the night!!!!! yikes what am I going to do with him when he gets home... hopefully he will want to get stright into school!!! He has had the best experiences on his Mission and has grown spiritually from them, in his last Email he talks about trials and how they make you stronger as a Missionary, he loves his Mission and Loves his Savior and is so thankful that he has this oppertunity to go and serve his Savior...
