To help spark my brain, I am hoping that if I post a picture, it will conjure up sweet memories and I can write down all the goodness that is taking place in our lives.
I painted the master bedroom one day when Todd was at work. I can't paint when he is at home because he is much better at it than I am (in the manner that I don't do it the way he does it). Either way it gets done and the end result is the same. I loved the color our room used to be but it just wasn't going well with the decor I currently had in there. There were high hopes, on my part, to do a complete transformation of the room, but with a budget of $20, a can of paint was easier to afford than the new bedding, furniture, draperies, etc.
Dakota did eat that entire piece of pizza.
Oh, this was a VERY good day. Sunday, July 3rd. So we were sitting in sacrament meeting when our good friends, the Bigler's. slid into the pew with us! Sam had no idea what ward he was attending, and Heather had kept the whole thing a secret from him. Connor gave a wonderful talk in primary on the Nauvoo Temple and how his daddy got to work on the temple. I gave a lesson in Relief Society, and with Heather there, I persuaded her to sing a duet with me for old times sake. Heather has an incredible voice and I love the way our voices blend together. After church, we had them over for pizza and to continue Sam's surprise the Brady's showed up, then the Crenshaw's, and then our friends the Lazo's. It was such an incredible reunion with our ohana! The kids just picked up and played as though they had always known one another...kind of like how the adults did. The time went by too quickly.
He picks up on so much, and with him grasping more than I am certain I ever did at his age, we have had a few adult discussions. The other day the girls were wrestling (my girls...really, not the boy! So different) and Carly's head landed in Abi's crotch. Connor yelled out, "Mom, Carly is doing special abuse to Abi." He meant sexual abuse. Needless to say, we revisited that conversation.
