As I read a blog of a friends this evening I was inspired to update mine. It has been way too long. I joined facebook and that was the end of blogging. The problem is that FB has many problems that I am getting tired of and one being that people air their garbage for all to see and then the fights begin. Ugh. . . drama - I usually avoid it.

I had a pretty great Sunday today, aside from not having my husband home (he is working because the weather is bad). I want to share a few thought before I finally retire for the night.

First, I have a very fabulously spiritual daughter that is a wonderful example to me. I love her!

Second, I am saddened by the disintegration of the family. It has become personal and I am not dealing with it well. To see so many people throwing their marriages & families away for naught, has broken my heart. It just testifies to me of the reality of Christ, of Prophets & of modern revelation. The Proclamation of the Family means everything to me! I am grateful for the knowledge & testimony I have of these things.

Third, 2 yr olds require a lot of patience (I should have gotten this one yrs ago). Kaleb is so much fun and loving. But he absolutely drains me at times. The problem is he thinks he is older than he really is and I am getting old. :(

Forth, my husband takes good care of us. He sacrifices so much for us to have what we have. I need to show my gratitude more by being wise and frugal with the money we have and remember his sacrifce always. We are not a perfect couple but we are working on it and I love him very much. This yr will be our 20th Aniversary, wowza!

Finally, I wonder and worry about the final days before Christ comes again. But I love that the Prophet says to be prepared and we shall not fear. Perhaps that is some of my worry, I need to work on myself. I have been trying to get a good routine of Scripture Study down and struggle some but I know that is how I will overcome. I absolutly have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. It testifys of Christ!

My family is good, crazy most of the time but good. We love our new house, neighbors, ward, and space to breath oh ya and our beautiful sunset. We miss our old neighbors who will always be family to us we love you all, I love you all. Goodnight.

Just having a quite relection moment

I was sitting here thinking about life and the activities that keep it hopping. Then I realized that I need to stop and enjoy the here and now more often. My kids are growing up so fast and I rarely write about the day to day things that are so funny or challenging, either. So I will writer about my day Yesterday.

I woke up very tired! So after David and Morgan went to work and school I decided to jump in a shower and get refreshed and awake. Well Kyle and Eli were already awake so I asked Ky to keep an eye on Eli while I showered. When I was toweling off Kyle comes yelling at the door that Eli had pooped on the floor and making a mess. I quickly got dressed and yep sure enough I found a wonderful mess on my kitchen tile. All I can say is thank goodness that is was on the tile and not the carpet. Well by this time it is 20 to 8 and I need to feed the boys, have them get dressed, clean the kitchen floor, bath Eli, and send the 3 oldest off to school all in less than 30 min. Lets just say that my tiredness did not help my mood! It all worked out!!

It was early day so Kyle and Kale got home around 1:30 and we started homework. I was so happy that Kale didn't complain. Infact he read for 40min and then did his spelling work and I didn't even have to threaten. What helped was that I ordered from the scholastic book orders the entire Magic Tree House Series and he was so excited to start reading them. Wow, and I almost didn't get them. He even read 45min this morning before getting ready for school, incredible. Kyle was a terd! He cried and wined and so did I!!! But we finished his spelling and reading an hour later. He sure has a hard time staying focused.

Morgan got home at 2:45. A neighbor boy had challenged her to a foot race after school on the bus ride home. I was worried that he would beat her and that is would humiliate her, but that was all in vain. They tied!!! Well she spent the rest of her time on homework (poor kid). She is in geometry - I know! I didn't take that till I was a junior in high school and she is only in 8th grade!!!! Tonight she has soccer practice so she usually jumps right on her homework as soon as she gets home. She is such a great kid, very responsible and smart!

I finished the night off by going to bring Eli back inthe house and ending up pulling weeds, mowing the lawn, bathing the kids, cleaning the kitchen and stressing about whether to go with my Sister somewhere(which I would still love to but not this weekend). So when I finally got to get in bed I was out as soon as I hit to pillow. Well my little huricane just came upstairs so I have to end and clean up a spilled mess - it never ends! But I love them and it is definitly worth it!

Mt. Nebo Hike 2008

Hiking a Mountain

Well David, my little bro Jon, and I all hiked mt. Nebo this past Saturday. We started around 12:45pm and most of the trail up wasn't to bad. The final assent was very steap and as we were climbing that rocky peak to the top I almost quit not because I was to tired but because I knew that I would have to come back down. I hate Heights and you could even say I have a rather unhealthy fear of them. Going up that last bit was for me with my hands and feet crawling up(like climbing a ladder). Quite scary and the margin for error was very slim. I think that I worried David a bit, it is sometimes nice to have your big strong man to worry over you their small weak woman. I know that sound dumb but I rather liked that David was concerned for me. Anyhow we reached the top and put our names in the book up there. We read a few of the things others wrote, one that was fitting for me said "Oh sun where for art thine heat". It was cold up there and so the picture the guys took of me I was huddled under Davids coat. I was stoked that I make it to the top, way exhausted and a little worried about climbing down and making it before the sun set, but happy. Well I would like to tell you that the desent was wonderful and quick and we made it to the car before darkness came, but we didn't and it was 8:30pm and quite dark by the time we reached the suburban. My right foot had 2 blisters on the heal, 2 on my big toe, and 1 on my middle toe. my calves hurt a bit but my thighs are so stinking sore that stairs are a nightmare and stretching them only marginally helps. Because the desent down that steep rocky peak was so terrifying for me I was so tense and my shoulders are still sore from that. I know I am a mess. I remember at one point as we were climbing off the peak I just sat there ready to start crying, because I was terrified and exhausted. That was one of the most difficult things mentally and physically that I have done for a while. It was worth it and I can now say that I have summited Mt. Nebo.
