We had our huge dead pine tree cut down and the stump removed. On one hand I was glad to hear it was bark beetles that got into the tree and killed it with nothing much I could have done (I really don't know what I am doing with any plants here in the desert). On the other hand it was a great big beautiful shady tree and it is sad it died.
Lots of playing here at home with Rand and Seth while Rhianna is off to school.
Seth is just cute.
Rand lost his second tooth.
We went on a ward temple trip. Some of the members watched our kids at a church nearby the temple. I took a sister back to the temple that hadn't been in years. Steve took two newer members to do baptisms. It was a wonderful day up in Mesa. On the way home, nearly everyone was asleep, which left Rand with an upside-down imprint of the R from his sticker on his face.
Rand and Seth made instruments at Bookman's for our playgroup today.
Rhianna and Rand are in swim lessons - yes this early in the year. But it is already getting hot. And hopefully lessons will help them swim better at the reunion in Boston and during the summer here.
We had a busy day today...gas, car wash, playgroup making instruments, grocery shopping, lunch, TV while mom pre-made dinner for the missionaries, pick Rhianna up from school, home for a little, swimming lessons, dinner...Then we relaxed and watched an episode of Life. I love these amazing shows about the Earth and the plants and animals. And my 2 boys fell asleep on me. It was a good day.
