    Scouts and Relaxing

    Monday and Tuesday this week were pretty standard days. Monday we had family home evening with the kids as always. I am so glad that we have this tradition established in our family. The kids know that it is Monday and that we have family home evening. Tuesday was laundry day and Sarah and I […]

  • Haircuts and Work

    Haircuts and Work

    We had a pretty great week this week. There were a few highlights. Eliza got a haircut and got to come with me to work for “Bring your kid to work day.” We also had an extra fun day on Saturday. For several weeks Eliza has been asking us to give her a haircut. Sarah got a […]

  • Eliza’s 3rd Birthday

    Eliza’s 3rd Birthday

    Three years ago this week Eliza joined our family! Our lives were forever changed for the better as we welcomed this sweet, spunky, little girl into our home and into our hearts. We have loved watching her grow up these last three years and this week we had a great time celebrating her birthday. She […]

  • Calm before the storm

    Calm before the storm

    So the next few weeks are going to be a bit crazy around here with me heading out to my semi annual CHREC meeting (in Albuquerque this time) and then out to scout camp the next week. This week was a good, normal week and we were able to recharge our batteries a bit to […]

  • Breaking Rain

    Breaking Rain

    So this was supposed to be our normal week after all of our traveling and travel recovery. We were even going to get back into the mode of exercising. All of that came crashing down when Sarah’s bathroom drawer crashed down on her big toe and fractured it in at least three places. It hurt so […]

  • Winding Down

    This week we finally started winding down after our whirlwind month of weddings and traveling. Our trip to Utah was so much fun and we loved seeing all of the family and getting two wonderful additions to our families. Eliza and James love their new aunt and uncle! After all this traveling it is good […]

  • Easter Hallelujah

    Easter Hallelujah

    Of course the focus of this week has been our Easter celebration. This year has been especially nice because we have been able to do better than ever  before on helping the kids (and ourselves) focus on Jesus Christ this week. Every night we have read from the Bible about what happened on that day […]

  • Things every night

    Things every night

    So this week we had something going on every night. Weeks like this keep us busy and also make us grateful for our little family routines and traditions. Monday night was probably the most “normal” (is that even a thing?) night of the week. We had family home evening. Sarah taught a lesson about the […]

  • Gone recruiting

    Gone recruiting

    Well this week I wasn’t at home a ton so I don’t have a lot to write. I spent the week up recruiting at BYU and kept plenty busy up there. I did the career fair, lots of interviewing and several events with candidates. It was a pretty good trip. It was fun to see […]

  • Learning and Growing 2

    Learning and Growing 2

    So this week was week two of potty training for Eliza and we had a much better week! She is pretty consistently going in the toilet for #1 and she had a major breakthrough on #2 this week. We have some bigger rewards for her when she does #2 and on Thursday she finally decided […]
