Our Family ~ Nov 2017

Monday, April 2, 2012


Yep, that's what unpacking is. I'm totally surround by boxes in a much larger house with an incredibly busy husband who cant seem to find anytime to help. So, I'm conquering it all little by little. Today is the girls room tomorrow its half the boxes in the living room downstairs...and so on!

My hopes are to plant a few seeds here and get the garden ready and to enjoy this change of pace in life.
After our annual conference last weekend, i really felt many of the speakers reaching out to all of us and giving us needed direction and focus to work on being better parents and responsible citizens in our communities....

President Monson urged members to avoid the distractions of life and remember the things that are of greatest importance: family, service, and living the gospel.

Dallin H. Oaks said:“Perhaps the most familiar and most important examples of unselfish service and sacrifice are performed in our families,” said Elder Oaks. Many also demonstrate unselfishness by adopting children—including those with special needs—and by providing for foster children."

Its so good to know that through all the craziness of parenting and preparing to foster, that Men of God are behind our efforts. I know its going to be hard but, I'm willing to do it anyway!

We set up the toddler bed, most of the crib in the foster room and i have to wash all the bedding and such but, it's exciting to think of whats ahead and how these children are going to teach us. it probably wont be till June but, that will get here faster than we know it! Just one more thing to add to my craziness- and i'm all for it!
