6 June 2008

Each person in Michael's first grade class did a report on their favorite farm animal. Michael did an awesome job on his report this morning. He talked about cows. Specifically - the neighbor cows. The pictures you see - we went out to the pasture and took them ourselves. Michael drew the other pictures except for the milk and cookies. I helped him with those.
Donovan and Christopher both earned really important awards at school this year. Both boys earned the Citizenship All-Star Award and were recognized for outstanding citizenship by exhibiting the mastery of lifeskills! :) Great job boys.

We would love to go outside and play. Except it's been pouring rain most of the week - and today! Where is summer? It feels like fall.

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
