Emilie's summer job!

Did I tell you Emilie worked construction this summer? She made some great money. hahaha and got really dirty! She used to love painting now I think I'll have to pay her a lot to get her to do it again. We will be leaving for BYU on Sat. and the younger ones will be starting school on the 25th. I am trying to get some more pictures for you. I'll try one more time then I'm going to bed. :)

Negative or Positive??

We have been in Texas for 1 year now. It has been a very long year and pretty hard on most of us. I've been thinking about it a lot. I know I complain a lot. But, today, I want to say how thankful I am for friends and family. We are truly blessed! Leaving Ferndale was the hardest thing ever! But, our friends have shown us that even though we might have moved we are still loved. Ben and Ali had their best friends, Julie and Tenaya, come visit for a whole week. Just to connect and keep that friendship alive. I for one am so glad!
My family is wonderful. This has been a quiet summer where we spend most days in the pool just to cool off. I find they love to talk while we are out there. Some of my favorite discussions have been while we are racing around in that little pool. I will forever treasure being able to spend this time with my children. Getting to know them. This blog is another reason my family is so wonderful. How else would all of the sisters keep in touch? I love you all so much and miss you. have a blessed week!
