Our saving grace

Any one who knows me has heard me say that my beautiful daughter is dragging us kicking and screaming to the celestial kingdom. She is the one who has made FHE an every Monday occurrence instead of when ever I remember kind of thing. She is the one who made us start having daily family scripture study again. She has even been known to sing primary songs at the top of her lungs to deter bullying at school.

We are now known as the Crazy Christians around Kameyosek Elementary.

Anyhoo, I now have a new story to further illustrate the righteousness that is Megan. Today Megan wasn't feeling great so she stayed home from school. I was feeling awful also and really needed to sleep so I told Megan that she could essentially do what she wanted this morning. Movies, TV, wii, snacks, nothing was off the table. An hour and a half later I woke up and went to check on her. My wild child was watching a Book of Mormon Stories movie while writing in her journal.

Where did this child come from?

She was obviously sent to our family to call us to repentance. Which she does, every day.

Where is spring

Where is spring?? I am so tired of being stuck in this house with these people (I love my family, really). My biggest pet peeve with winter is that it seems like we are sick from the first snowfall until we can open the windows again. For example just this winter we have had innumerable colds, stomach flu twice, I have had three, yes three ear infections and now my little Dallin has pneumonia for the second time in three months.

Can you order a bone marrow transplant from Amazon? I wonder how much that would cost.

In spring, summer and fall we are outside all the time. We go on bike rides, hike, camp, barbecue,and play in the park, essentially, we live outside. And although we are annoyed by seasonal allergies, we just keep going.

Maybe I could build a bio dome around our house, hmm. I wonder what the monthly utilities would be on that.

Anyways, I have become a weather network stalker. I check the forecast about 18 times a day. When the long range forecast shows a warming trend I am as happy as can be but if the temperature tanks so does my patience and mood.

Maybe I can be adopted by a lonely rich childless couple who have a house in the Bahamas, hmm. I wonder if E-Harmony has a section for that.
