Girls Camp!

Well back from one camping trip and off to another. The family camping trip was fun.
Ryan even took off a Saturday and went 4 wheeling with us up South Fork. It was nice to sleep in my own bed last night, I'm sure tonight will be even better. I'm off in the morning with the YW girls. I'm even more excited for this one. I loved girls camp when I was a YW. Ryanna took off with her cousins to Rexburg, ID (thanks Marie) and my boys will be going to stay with both of their grandma's (thank you grandma's)and I'm sure Shelby will get some of the fun too, she's planning on taking my boys to Cherry Hill on Friday (thanks Shel). I'm sure I'll have lots to tell when I get home, until then.

weekly thought

We may give without loving but we cannot love without giving.

We are going camping over the 24th weekend. We have pulled our trailer over to Ryan's parents house. His moms sister & family are all coming to join us. It sounds quite exciting. Hey with the price of gas these days where else can you go? We will be swimming, 4 wheeling, watching fireworks, playing cards, visiting, eating etc.. what more could anyone ask for? I will let you know all about it when I return. Hope you all have a Happy 24th! 10-4

New calling

The executive clerk walks up to me before sacrament meeting and tells me that the bishop would like to talk to me after chuch. All during sacrament I am thinking "oh great what could it be?" So after church I go in the bishop's office and before he could even say anything I start crying "I love my calling I love the YW" and he says "Don't worry you'll still be in there, let me tell you what it is" He told me that they would like me to be in the Presidency as the 1st councelor working with the Miamaids instead of an advisor in the Laurels. As long as I stay in the YW's - I don't really care what I am. He also said "I am aware of your situation and realize that you might have to leave us. Here is my sunday thought: The joy that you give to others is the joy that comes back to You.

We went out for Chinese tonight. My fortune cookie said: BE PREPARED TO RECEIVE SOMETHING SPECIAL. I can't wait to see what it is. Ryan said he knows what it is.
Only one more month until school starts! SWEET - I can't wait.
I teach the lesson tommorow in YW's it is on Obedience.

worst nightmares

One of my worst nightmares has come true. I laid Stratton down for a nap today and the next thing we knew he was back outside. He even showed me how he got out of his crib. He's so proud. Yikes! Don't tell me he's done with naps cuz I know I'm not.
Ryan put the air conditioner in our room today. I wanted it put in our family room like last year but I'll take it wherever I can atleast there will be one cool room in the house to hide out in.
The rodeo sucked. It was probably the worst one I've been to. I got tickets for my mom and dad tonight. I sure hope it's better than last night. It would have to be.
Tommorow is the big parade. Ryanna is so excited to dance in it. She is liking dance more than ballet now.
My allergies are so bad. I feel like crap. My nose is either stuffy or runny, it is so sore from constantly wiping it. I can't sleep. I don't want to eat (which is a good thing). I am just miserable. I never had allergies until I had kids.

I'm melting!

My house is so hot. It is 82 in here. Someone please wake me from this nightmare. I am not a nice person when I'm hot & sweaty. I have made Ryan promise me that he will never build me a house without a/c again. I used to get in my car & drive around when I was hot, but now gas prices are so ridiculous that I can't do that.
Our weekend getaway was hot but great! It's hard coming back to reality especially when it's hotter than (you know what). We've got the big ol' Oakley RODEO tonight! Can't wait - I really like the 4th of July it's something out of the norm or ssdd.
