You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. some may be significant only to you. some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experience. - President Hinckley

Kindergarten Graduation

Dallin got to have his "Summer birthday" celebration in class- I went in a read a story to the class and they celebrated.  This was at the end of the school year as well, so I got to see several cute songs and performances by the kindergartners.  :)

Forced Walk ....

I  had the little boys go with me on a walk - they weren't too thrilled until they found some critters and got to throw rocks in water and climb trees , then it was ok.

Passing the Ball

I still can't do much as far as exercise goes, but I passed the ball around with my boys - it was nice to be outside and fun to throw the ball around.

Gwendalin has wanted a bunny for the last SEVERAL months.  Our neighbor’s ended up with one a few months back and their bunny ended up having baby bunnies. So, guess what happened….yep, On Saturday they were old enough to be adopted…and now we have a bunny.  Gwennie is in love!

Sweet Little Joe

We got home from wrestling on Sunday afternoon.  Hunter looked around and tried to find his new little puppy Joe.  He couldn’t find him anywhere, so then Travis went to look and we had  a call to the kid who was watching him for the day and  a half that we were gone…..he said that Joe was fine the day before when he had fed him and he hadn’t been over yet to feed them on Sunday.  Travis ended up finding Joe in the backyard – he came to the sliding door and called for me – he was in tears.  He had just sprayed for weeds and when he saw Joe’s dead little body next to the pond, he was certain that it was the weed spray that had killed him.  We have since learned that – he likely had heart failure or when he had gotten in the shed earlier in the week before we had left, he had eaten some fabric covers and not been able to pass them digestively. Our Vet who is also in our ward told Travis assuredly that it was not the weed killer.  It was a very hard Sunday.  Travis spent off and on trying to hold back tears.  Joe had brought so much life to Jethro and Jethro loved him too.  They slept together they loved each other.  We let Hunter have some moments with Joe and then Travis put his little body into a box and he and Hunter went up the hill to a larger field and buried his little body.  Hard hard day.  Here are some of the pictures we have of him and the two of them together.

A Trip to Dallas

I went and saw Marie for 3.5 days before I had to go back to work.  I flew out on Wednesday and came home on Saturday night so that I could have Sunday to gear up to go back to go to work.  It was awesome!  I loved every minute of laughing with her, seeking her advice, dining out (she’s single and doesn’t stock a whole lot of food), eating Hagan Daas ice cream bars (dark chocolate/pomegranate).  She is such an amazing woman!  I wish I had without a doubt the PERFECT guy for her and I would let them be happy together…..unfortunately I don’t and she’s single and it’s not what she planned. Anyway, such a good trip – we even took a few pictures and saw quite a few water towers….holy water towers in Texas batman!  There was a lady on one leg of my flight who was terrified and held my hand for the last 15 minutes in the air.
