Children



"My dear brothers and sisters, may the laughter of children gladdenour hearts. May the faith of children soothe our souls. May the love ofchildren prompt our deeds. 'Children are an heritage of the Lord'(Ps. 127:3)." Thomas S. Monson

Special Days

Today was Porter’s “Day” and I let him choose what we would eat for dinner (macaroni and cheese and broccoli) and choose the treat (ginger snaps). He and Glenn made the ginger snaps while I read to W and C from a book we got at the library. S was sleeping. I think each month I will try to give each child a "day" where they get a few special things.

No House

We accepted an offer on our house on Monday and then ten days later we have since closed on our house, packed all our things, and cleaned our house. Mind you these tasks were done with four boys, including a newborn, Glenn working full time and a baby blessing thrown into the mix. What does this all amount to? INSANITY! I have never been so busy. We now have boxes filling our front room (we are now living in Glenn's parents' house until we decide if and where we will build or buy. His parents are on an LDS mission so they are not actually living here) and there are boxes lining the carport. I want to go through each box and organize since I wasn't able to on the way out. We'll see how long I stick to that idea before I say, "Just throw it all in storage."
So there is the update. Hopefully life will slow down a bit.

House

We were planning on putting our house on the market as soon as we moved out and could clean the place, but just for the heck of it I put it on craigslist. Less than a week later I have a contract in my hands and they are willing to pay the asking price. The lady will meet with two lenders tomorrow to see if she can qualify and close quickly.

Just one of the many things going on right now. I will see if I have time to write about them another time. Right now I'm tired as we spent all day at Glenn's parents' house. They spoke in church today and will report to the MTC tomorrow. they are going to New Jersey. We will then start sleeping in their house next week.

I will try to keep you posted.

Here are a couple pics of our house since most of you have never been here. Sorry I don't have time to post more. I am very tired and we're moving a bunch of stuff tomorrow.

Father and Son Campout



For those of you who are not aware, most wards organize a father and son campout every year. It is something the boys look forward to and talk about throughout the rest of the year. This year Glenn had three boys for the evening and Stafford and I hit the mall. I picked up Warrick after shopping and just P, C and G slept under the cold, cold stars. (It dropped to about 28F. Brrrrrr.)
