We had a blast on Halloween!! The kids loved it, Parker was done after about 10 houses!! However Kinzley loved every minute of it!!! She would get so upset if we skipped a house!! It was so cute and so so much fun!!
Sunday after church we headed to my parents house for an amazing dinner and a great family home evening!!!! My mom is so amazing, she has been teaching a new Scripture story each week and I am amazed at how much Parker can remember!!! I am so lucky to have such a wonderful mother who blesses the life's of her children and grandchildren everyday! I love you mom!! Last Sunday she told the story of Nephi building the ship. Part of the story talks about how God granted Nephi the ability to show his brothers that God was directing him. Through the power of God, Nephi by allowing Nephi put forth his hand and "shocked" Laman and Lemuel. Then they realized that Nephi had the power of God with him. Laman and Lemuel repented and began helping Nephi build the ship.
Monday at preschool Parker was hit by one of the other students. Upon arriving at home, he told me that he prayed to God for the power to "shock" the disobedient schoolmate so they would repent and become righteous.
I am amazed at the simple faith he had, and his willingness to be obedient!!! He never stops teaching us and he is such a blessing in our lives!!!
Parker started preschool a couple weeks ago!! He loves going to preschool, and he loves his teachers!!! He was very excited this year because Mylee, is in his class!!! He also get to go to school with a bunch of his friends!! I am sure they are going to have a blast!!!
The 1st day of school was hard on Kinzley, she kept going in Parker's room looking for him!! Then the first thing she did when he got home was go and put on his backpack!! It was so cute!! She loves her big brother Parker and misses him when he is at school!!
I really need to be better about posting on my blog!! We have had a crazy busy summer!!! This is one of the things we have done!!! I am going to be adding a few more in the near future ( I hope)!!
My 1st Triathlon was harder then I thought it would be!! The fact that I only got 2 hours of sleep didn't help!!! We had a commitment in Utah Friday night and didn't get home until 3:00 am!! Despite the sleep problem it was still fun!!!The swim was the worst part!!! If you know me you know how much I love to swim!!! Hahahaha I hate swimming!!!! Because I love to Swim so much my Mom had a hard time believing I was actually going to do this ( and to tell you the truth so did I, It must have been the per pressure)!!! After the swim it was on to the Bike and this went great, besides the fact that my bike was having fits ( my chain came off twice and I was never able to shift gears) I really enjoyed riding despite my troubles!!! Last came the run, normally this is a cake walk but after you ride 13 miles your legs don't work and just standing is difficult!!! By the second mile my legs were finally feeling better and I knew I only had 1 mile to go!!! All in all I really enjoyed doing the Triathlon and I might even do it again next year!!! I was really glad I got to do it with Ashley and Shalaina! It was so fun to train with them, they are awesome and I had a blast!!! You guys rock, and I Love ya!!! I just have one question for you guys what is our next adventure???
On Jun 13th I ran the Teton Dam Half Marathon!!! It was a blast, and I was lucky enough to be able to run it with one of my best friends Ashley!!! We have been training for a couple months!!! However once we started the race, we began to wonder if we were ever going to run down hill!!! During our training we just ran in Rigby, which is all FLAT!!! The race was in Rexburg so about 11 miles of it where up hill!!! We only got to enjoy 1 mill down hill!!! Bummer, I loved the down hill!!! I was sore for 4 days, I think it was because of all the hills!! It was so much fun!!! I was so lucky to be able to run it with Ashley, she is amazing and we make the best team!!! There is no way I could have done it with out you!!!! Your the best!!! I can't wait to see what our next adventure will be!!! Maybe the Full!!!
I was with a friend a couple months ago and we went to Walgreen's on a coupon shopping adventure!!! My eyes where opened when she got toothpaste, floss, and a toothbrush for FREE!!! After that I was hooked on using coupons!!!!!! Over the past 2 months I have bought $1536.00 in Merchandise and only paid $ 412.00!!! I have cut our grocery bill in half!! The best part is that I have increased our food storage!!! In a couple more months we should have a full year supply!!! Got to love coupons!!! They are the best!!!
