When I grow up......

When someone asks Emma what she wants to be when she grows up, her answer is always "a doctor". One of her friends said, "well I want to be a fashion model". Emma thinks and then says, "well I want to be a doctor first, then a fashion model". I sure hope that through out her life, she will not be completely swayed by others and loose sight of her dream. I know that is kinda out there but it just made me think about her future.

Now for the above picture: Recently we were at Walmart and the kids wanted too look at the books. Emma looked through many books, but this is the book she wanted to buy. Not only did she want to buy a book on Volcanoes, when I read it to her she actually listens to it and soaks it all in. She also wanted the books about spiders, snakes, and tornados. So basically she is not fixed on one subject she just likes to learn about "real things." We then went to the Library the next day and found more fun books. Experiments with water, Shapeships & Rockets, & her favorite "The Human Body". I am so glad she loves to learn!

A friend is...........

I am glad Emma & Christy have become friends. They are in the same Primary class at church & they love playing together. Christy is such a "girl". She is all about fashion, makeup & everything girl. Emma likes to do girl stuff but Christy really brings the "girl" out in her. It was so fun to watch them dance & sing and play house. I hope they can be friends for a long time to come.

The boy has found his throne!

Spencer has just realized it is so much fun to use the real potty. He is by no means totally potty trained but he is on his way! We are so excited! I censored the picture so in future years my son won't be embarrassed. LOL

Ward Split & Changes

Well last week our ward & a few others were split and changed around. We are glad we are still in our same ward, we love it. Today I got called to be Primary President. I am glad to be still in Primary because I love the children and have just begun to build friendships with them. I am humbled by this calling and I know I will try to serve with all my heart. I am grateful to our new Bishop for the inspiration he is to me, Bishop Shuldberg is a humble man. I know I am going to learn so much in this calling but it is slightly scary because the ward was split everyone was released and now we have to set the entire primary up. This should be interesting.

Steve gave a wonderful talk today in sacrament. He talked about how our testimonies can carry us through difficult challenges. I am amazed by the many long hours he spent in study.

Well that is all for now. I think I will share more journal entries later.
