We are all so very sick. Conrad started with a little cough, not a big deal. Then Ali got it. Ben and I now have it. It hurts so bad! All of us are still coughing and feverish. My Dr. said because I have FM it is going to feel worse for me. And it does hurt. My chest feels like someone is sitting on it. blah. ok enough of me.

I just read Dani's blog. I want to be able to run like that! How amazing! I think it is so cool how she and Brent are trying to be more healthy. Running like that. whew! I am in awe! I love that Brent is so sweet and supportive. Not that expect anything other than that from him. :) Way to go Dani!!!

Oops, I forgot the picture of the honey. It looks like a giant button! hahahaha

Oh Ali

Ali had a rough day yesterday. In the morning she made oatmeal for breakfast, then made her lunch for school. The honey had crystallized so I told her to put it in the microwave for a sec. Her brain was still on breakfast and put it in for 2 min.! Yikes! Burnt honey does not smell good. It was so funny. She was scared I would get mad, and I was worried she would get hurt. Lovely way to start the day. THEN, after school she was doing her cross country workout (running forever!) and she tripped and fell. Poor thing is all beat up. What a crappy day. Luckily, she didn't break anything this time or need stitches. We were able to laugh about it later in the night while we put bandages on her cuts. And she is so sweet- "I'm sorry Mom" SO SWEET!!!

Today is Conrad's birthday. He is 17. He is such an amazing guy! He is always there to help out whenever needed. He and Reed have gotten very close. It is so fun watching them laugh and joke together. Watching him grow into a young man has been such a pleasure. I love how willing he is to serve. He doesn't hesitate when he sees something that needs to be done. He is such a blessing to our family. Happy Birthday Conrad! I love you!

Back to school

I love this picture! 3 generations. Love it!!!

First of all, here are some pictures of the wedding.

All the kids are back at school this week. Emilie went back to BYU on Thurs. I miss her already. We spent a lot of time together this summer. Everyone is so busy now. Conrad has band and soccer. Ali has choir and cross country. Ben has band and basketball and track. Reed is working a lot. Cassia and Joey are in marital bliss. Emilie has a full schedule with 16 credits. I am trying to figure out what fibromyalgia is and how to live with it. Having a name to it eases some of the tension. I now know there are medicines and exercises I can do to alleviate the pain.

I love getting on Facebook. I don't feel like I have enough to say for a blog. So a one liner once in a while is great. Plus, ALL of you have gotten on it! Now I can see how you are doing. So many of my friends that I've lost touch with, in the CG, have found me. Before fb,moving around so much has made it hard to find each other. :)

This is a quick blog I will post more later in the week.
