Summer Has Arrived!!

The sun was out and calling so I got the kids and we headed for the one and only Green belt. I hadn't been since we have been back mainly due to the rain. It was great, so I got the bread to feed the ducks with the kids. The ducks weren't that hungry so Syd ate most the bread, even though it was stale. Seth took the pic of me and Chloe he did a pretty good job. I really like those kiddos!!

This is how high the water has gotten. The river was moving so fast!

Happy Father's Day!

I have some really great men in my life that I am forever grateful for. My Dad is an amazing person. He is kind and generous, funny and easy going, he honors his priesthood and loves his family more than anything. I don't know what I would do without him he will forever be a source of strengthen and love to me.

My Father in Law is another amazing Man. I am grateful for the person he is and all that he taught Michael (not necessarily how to kill a pig but I guess that is a good skill to have.) His example has taught me the importance of learning for the Scriptures and loving the gospel.

I would be nothing with out him. My life is my family So thank you Michael for giving them to me. Thank you for taking the journey and learning everyday with me. I wouldn't want to do it with any one else. You are an amazing Man and Father.

Joys of Being a Girl

Sydney often requests that I paint her nails. The other day I said why don't we paint Chloe's too. Her eyes lit up with excitement and said REALLY? It was so cute. So, I forgot how hard it is to paint little toes. It got ever where but when I was done Syd said and you we are all girl's Mom. It was fun painting nails with my girls. I am sure it is the first of many sessions.

Here is a picture of Chloe (I know she looks like a boy and the blues doesn't help.) She is getting so big. She has started scooting on her bum it's so funny. She really hates her tummy so I have been trying to put her on it more, but it is nice having her stationary. She has been a Stinker lately and decided that she only wants to be rocked to sleep and is waking up way to early. She is a my cuddle baby and I have probably spoiled her because she is so easy to want to hold when she is sleeping.

And that's how it's done!

This is such a funny story of Seth. A few weeks back the Scouts came out to fish. Michael wanted to go, which, of course, meant that Seth wanted to go too. At first we didn't let him because he is very allergic to bug bites. But after awhile of him continuosly begging and pleading to go, we pulled out the bug spray, drenched him with it, and called Papa to come and get him. The scouts had already been at the pond for 20 minutes or so with out any luck at catching the little fishes. Seth arrived on site, got out his trusty Spiderman Rod and made a smooth cast out into the water. After watching his little bobber for a few minutes, it started to jiggle. Seth waited patiently, and when it finally went under Seth set the hook perfectly and snagged a fish. After expertly reeling it in, he looked over at one of the scout leaders and calmly exclaimed "And that's how it's done!!" That's our boy......a professional fisherman at only 5 years old.

Just a Thought

Today we had an awesome Stake Conference I feel truly Spiritually feed. Sometimes when I listen to conferences any conference I walk away feeling slightly guilty for not doing enough. This time however I came away with a little more understanding. I have realized that this life is... ready for it this is a big epiphany here....a Learning experience! I know big!! Sarcasm aside I realize today that I am not suppose to be doing everything. If the First day I become a wife a was prefect at it or the first day I became a mother I never faltered in my responsibilities I wouldn't be Learning. I now understand that when the spirit whispers to me "Amy, you should read your scriptures" it's not saying "Amy, you are so horrible for not reading your scriptures" It's my Loving Heavenly Father nudging me to do those things that will bring me closer to him. I see more clearly that I am loved by my Father in Heaven and that he understands me. This was definitely something that I need to feel. I feel for the most part I am an optimistic person. I take this life on Faith I have never really had trouble knowing that I would be okay through life challenges. Don't get me wrong I worry about my kids and my husband and life and what or where will will be next. But lately I have felt extremely negative the feelings of frustration and anxiety had pushed out my usually positive out look. But today the overwhelming love of my Father Heaven fills me and I know that I am learning each day I am trying to do better, be better and serve those I love better. So, We made it to Idaho, we found a place to live (our house still hasn't closed crossing our fingers for this week) Our ward seems good we have already had some visitors (not as good as Jackson I am sure but we will make do) The kids are great and they are the light of my life. Michael is staying busy and things are working out. I am blessed and I am grateful for all I have. Hope you all had a wonderful Sabbath!!
