A Few More Things (this time with some pictures)

My life is not really my own right now. Well, that is a little dramatic. What I mean is that I feel super busy - Devon is on the track team, Courtney on the basketball team - combine those with all of our everyday afternoon/evening commitments and I feel swamped. I'm having some stress about signing up to do Pat's Run. I'm really going to do it. I would love it if you would do it too. I'm not really sure why I decided to do it. I've never run in my life - I don't think I really like to run. I just felt like it was something that I could work towards. Pat's story has always moved me and I think that is part of it. I started a training program that eases the running in - yesterday was the first day - I ran 60 seconds and then walked 90 seconds, I did it seven times - 60 seconds has never seemed so long. But, I did it and I will do it again tomorrow.

My other stress is my new camp calling. I was called to be in charge of the "spiritual night" - if you are not familiar with girl's camp or maybe more specifically, girl's camp in this stake - the spiritual night is a really big deal. I am not a big deal. I'm not sure how to pull off a big deal.

For the promised pictures. Courtney took my Morgan out in the back yard for a photo shoot the other day. I don't have a fancy camera - it is really just a point and shoot digital thing but the pictures she took are so amazing. I love these girls!


One last picture: I can't think of anything sexier than a husband doing housework. Alan pulled out the ladder and dusted and cleaned all of the things in my front room that are way too high for me to do. It was awesome.

I can't wait till things slow down around here too. It will be good times over spring break.

Love the pics. Coco needs to go into the biz.

Men + Housework = True love.

How did you get your husband to do housework? I'm impressed. I like the candid shots of your daughter- very natural and beautiful. My son is doing track too. They run them ragged at practices don't they? I love a good recipe so I'm going to check out the blog you mentioned. And finally, camp spiritual night, don't worry you'll be great. I can feel your loving heart through this computer so I know the spirit will be able to convey to your heart what should be done.

Hey, I finally made it back to your blog. Larry got laid off so I quickly went back to work substituting at the schools. I have been so busy it's crazy. By the way, I love pictures of guys doing housework, even if it's not my husband!

You are going to do an amazing job at camp!! Don't under estimate yourself.
Good Luck
