New calling

A couple of weeks ago, I was released as the nursery leader and put in young womens as the laurel advisor. I am excited to work with the young women again. This will be my 3rd time being in young womens in my ward. However, I do miss those sweet little nursery kids. It was fun being in there with Kyndee for the past year. I do look forward to getting to know the young women again and the new experience it will bring.

I was able to go to Youth Conference with the girls yesterday and today up at Kolob. It was a ton of fun. I really enjoyed spending time with the girls. We stayed overnight, so it was nice to get a little break from the kids but I was sure glad to get home to them. They had lots of fun activities for us to do; ropes course, archery, dancing, zipline, water games, and lots of good food.

I did not want to ride the zipline but of course the girls talked me into it. It turned out to be a lot of fun until I got to the end and a bunch of people were waiting for me at the bottom with water ballons then about 4 different buckets full of water. I got drenched!!! I definitely didn't see that coming. It was still fun though.

We all had a great time, but I am glad to be back home after getting sunburned, soaked, having to use latrines (Eww), and sleeping in one building with all the young women in our stake. Good time and fun memories I guess.

This is not me, but that's what it looked like when I got down to the bottom.
Look at this poor kid. And there were more people line up that you cannot see throwing water on him.

Being silly

Cadence wanted a picture of her and I together. So this is how they turned out. I didn't know she was going to make faces until I saw the picture. What a funny kid.

still making faces
and finally she smiles....

We were bored while Kyndee was taking a nap.

I made some flowers to put in the girls hair. Cadence wanted me to take pictures of her. I just love this kid!!!! She makes me laugh. Cody thinks the flower is too big, but Cadence loves it!

Just for fun

I decided to take some pictures of the kids for fun. I wanted to see if I could make some of them old looking. I like how they turned out after I photoshoped them.

Cadence loves her boots. She always tells me she wants to be a cowgirl, but then she also wants to be a dancer and a mom. She makes me laugh. I think that Cadence like to pose for the camera.

Kyndee will only sit still for about 1 minute. When I tried to get her to sit still she would sit for a min. and say "Ok, I done". Then she would get up and run off to play. In the picture of Kyndee smiling you can kind of see her missing tooth from when she had to get surgery. Man Kyndee's shorts look so big on her, I think it's funny.

In the garden

We are loving our garden! The kids are having fun picking the pea pods. This is our 3rd year having a garden. This year we are growing peas, squash, zuccini, melon, cucumbers, tomatoes, and jalapenos. Eash year we try something new. It's been so much fun.

Even our dog likes the garden! Luckly she doesn't eat it,
she just wants to lay in it.
