First page of 2 page report has messed up format.

I have a report in access that is a 2 page report.  I have attached a pdf file that shows the output for 2 records (4 pages, 2 pages per record).  For some reason the bottom of the first page is out of whack, but the first page of the second record is just fine.  What could be causing this?  How do I fix it?

      Your first page is too long and it's spilling over onto page 2.  Looks like in the Vegetation section you have the controls set to can shrink or they grew for record one, which has data in these fields.

    Awesome catch.  I never would have figured that out.  there were numerous text boxes that had Yes for the Can grow property.  I just changed that to no and all good again.
