There’s been a lot going on but not much time to be on the computer lately. Today I thought I’d join in on Heather’s Five Things for Friday to help summarize our happenings.
1. Come next March I will be the mother of 10 children! TEN! That sounds like such a big number but when we look at our brood it doesn’t seem like a lot. We are so excited! To tell the children I wrote the following sentence, one word each, on 3×5 cards “Mark your calendar for March thirty-first.” I had them come and choose a card. Most were moaning thinking the cards contained extra chores for the week.Then they were confused with only one word on their card. I told them to put the words in the right order. It worked out perfectly! Since then I’ve had an ultrasound that has bumped my due date up to March 25th.
2. Sweet Cookie turned eight last week and was baptized on Sunday. She is growing up so fast! It was a beautiful celebration with extended family coming from all over.
3. I am so excited for this weekend! Twice a year we have the opportunity to listen to our Prophet and Apostles speak to us as a whole church. They travel around the world the rest of the year visiting with members but this weekend is for all of us.
We are creating a place of faithfulness online, where we address issues of personal faith, strengthening families, and engaging in our communities with Real Intent – with an assumption that our talking will help each of us to be better, to do better, and to help one another in our discipleship.
5. My youngest sister is engaged! Her “hunt” is over! Anyone who knows her and her fiance will get the joke. 🙂 We found out the same day I told the kids about their new sibling coming so it was a very exciting eventful day for us.
