August Turns 8!

Our August turned eight last September. He is such a delight to have in our home. Even at his young age he is an honorable boy that exudes integrity and accountability.  Aug currently is a budding pianist, is loving tetheball and still maintains that he will grow up to be an author/illustrator.  He is motivated to make goals and do everything he can to reach them. He is a good example to his whole family and is such a great care taker of his little brother.   

Auggy asked for Cheesecake Factory for dinner and dessert. Since we had run around all day celebrating and playing we asked him if dinner somewhere closer to home that also had cheesecake on the menu would be OK. He still insisted on The Cheesecake Factory. He was so hyped up for his birthday this year and on a continual high from the time he woke up, that by the time we actually got to dinner he had decided he was too tired to get a piece of cheesecake. Haha. We said, "No way, you are ordering a piece!"

August's Baptism

On October 12, 2013 August was baptized by his Dad and confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 

He enjoyed having his Grandpa and Grandma Sandstrom from Utah and Aunt Sherry and Uncle Mike come down to attend. As well as his Grandma and Grandpa Kimball and Aunt Stacey and Uncle Gary and many other friends and family come to be with him on his big day.  

For some reason pictures on baptism day seem to elude me. So I have posted the random ones I did manage to get. 


There are so many things that we look forward to seeing Aug accomplish, he is a spirited kid and determined to succeed in everything he puts his mind to.  We love our Aug Dog!!!
