This morning we slept in a bit later than we liked, but it was nice to feel rested before heading to San Antonio. The temple is about an hour and a half away. We fed the kids a double breakfast (first cereal, then waffles), loaded the car with headphones and ipods, sna...

We started Come, Follow Me this week and I have loved going through the lesson and letting the spirit guide and inspire how to teach the children.

Yesterday we planted seeds in the four areas mentioned in the parable and today we dissected a seed. We realized there are...

Welp. This about sums up my day today. I think Monday had it out for me. Maybe it's because I went to bed Sunday night with a sink full of dirty dishes and rooms untouched. Whatever the case, I tapped out today and left Monday with a sweet victory. 

I will say, I'm thor...

Earlier this week on our morning bike ride Sanders nearly ran into Tommie. He was tail-gating her inch by inch and I was screaming to him to “Go on the other side!!" and "Watch out!!”

We officially met Tommie yesterday.

Tommie (though I’m not sure this is the correct way...

For the last few days our washer and dryer have been joining us for dinner, and I presume they will be back again tonight. Although they are overstaying their welcome and move for no one, their visit is tolerated because it finally means we are renovating our floors.

A moment in the life of Cohen looks like this. Seconds before, he asked for help in removing his shirt and shorts (which was a first time request so I was wondering where he was going with this).

He promptly laid down, his trail of bread crumbs behind him (abandoned Gol...

If this post could have a song, it would be this one. I'm playing it as I type and I'm trying to re-live every one of these pictures I took last Saturday. 

One thing I didn't ever think about when I dreamed about my family was how I would fall in love with my children o...

This morning we woke up to the sound of rain in a darkened room. It's my favorite way to wake up. I was tempted to buy hot chocolate, but the weather still showed a forecast of 88 degrees. Will summer ever end? I sure love Austin but when Fall is your favorite season,...

Sanders came running over to me.

"Mommy, I need to show you what a bad guy did. A bad guy did this." He handed me a dismembered microphone. The brand new one Brett had just bought for the children.

I gasped, but I was able to keep my voice calm. "Sanders, did you do this...

"Mom, can you see me? Hi Mom!" That was my wake up call this morning from little Sanders. Except I wasn't in my bed. I was in the shower. And before I knew it I saw two tiny hands and a face pressed up against the fogged glass shower window. 

I grabbed my luffa and...
