I am so blessed

I don't take the time often enough to sing the praises of my wonderful husband...but today I am making sure I do. 

He is such a great dad!! The other day he was reading a Dr. Seuss book for a bedtime story. I loved how all the children gathered around to enjoy the time with dad. I actually videoed part of the story being read but I don't think Neil would want me to post it.

Today Neil took his Saturday and worked on a project I have been wanting to do.  Thank you so much!!!  We turned one wall of MaryAnne's room into an area for clothes for the five youngest children.  It turned out great!!  I am so excited to be able to hang their clothes instead of having them shoved into drawers or baskets.  Thank you, Neil!! I appreciate your talents and efforts to help me have my dream area.  You are the best!!!

Neil, I love you and am grateful for you everyday!!!  Thanks for being my eternal sweetheart!!  Love, Sarah

Week in Review and looking ahead

It has been a busy week around here. It seemed like this week was a challenge to have dinner ready because I was always running in the afternoon.  At least Julia has her drivers license now and can drive herself to piano on Monday afternoon.  Hooray for Julia!!! 

I took David, MaryAnne and Dallin on a field trip with Connections Academy Friday afternoon to the Buffalo Billl Historical Center.  We really enjoyed exploring the Center together.  We picked up pizza on our way home and called it a party.  Everyone was excited to have pizza.  Friday morning when I checked the email there was one with the subject :BYU Parent Newsletter.  I asked Bethany if she had been accepted at BYU. She said she hadn't checked for awhile. Sure enough she had been accepted.  Now the decision time continues. She has been accepted at all the schools she applied to. She is waiting to hear about scholarship offers.

Today is Rebecca's finale of BIG the musical.  I know she will miss performances and being with the cast. Fortunately for her there is an exciting trip in the very near future.  In one week Rebecca, Bethany and Julia will be in Florida together.  They have been saving for several years to go to the Harry Potter Theme Park.  They fly out of Salt Lake on week from today.  They will be there almost a full week.  They are so excited!!!
