Random thoughts

Iryna wore panties to church today and had no accidents. And there was much rejoicing.

Keith has been coming with me to Primary (instead of nursery) for the past 2 Sundays. I am grateful for my calling to teach Iryna's class. It has helped make the transition for Keith to come to Primary. If I had been serving anywhere else in the church, I don't think that Keith would be out of the nursery for a long time.

I love leading the music in church. It gives me a chance to sing full voice and I find that I memorize the hymns better when I'm leading. Today we sang this hymn - I like the words and the melody a lot. I find that I learn some of the gospel principles more through the hymns. I just feel such a connection with music.

Anna's best friend, Sydney, is moving with her family to Alaska tomorrow. Anna is really upset about this. Anna said that if she could choose between being able to do whatever she wanted for 1 day or for Sydney to stay here, she would have Sydney stay in FL. "Because 1 day is just 24 hours, but friendship is forever," she said.

On the drive home from church, Anna started crying. I said that it must be hard having her best friend move away. Anna replied: "She's not my best friend, she's my BFF - Best Friends FOREVER!" Poor baby. :(

For lunch, I made french toast and homemade syrup. I let the syrup cool on the table during "quiet time" while the kids were in their rooms playing and Tyler & I were napping. I woke up to see a spoon in the cup of syrup. Iryna had decided that syrup was a nice snack.

This past week I let the house get out-of-control dirty. At one point - all the rooms were in disarray. Last night, my sweet husband and I attacked the house with vigor and it's so nice to see the house all clean again.

Tomorrow is the first official day of summer - at least for as far as I'm concerned! I have a schedule all made up which consists of free bowling, free movies, picnic/park dates, reading time, and playgroups. I'm excited about spending a few months with my sweet kids. :D
