funny. but not really.

late at night when everyone is asleep
 B will actually talk.
words do come out of his mouth.
he informed me that he had his first visit
to the principals office.
12th grade first time.
apparently he and a buddy(spencer) thought
it would be funny to copy money
and set it on the floor in the commons area at school.
to see how many people thought they had just found  a 20.
not so funny.
3rd period he gets a note.
not good.
i had one terrified, scared out of his pants teenager.
i can get so mad at this child and have plenty of times.
but when i saw the look of fear still
in his eyes
i knew i didn't need to get mad.
i just said
if you think something might be a bad idea
it usually is.
especially when it comes to counterfeit money.

play ball.

little sister wants in on the action too:)

i have yet to find something he doesn't like to do.
crafts, sports, homework, tumbling, dishes, cleaning toilets.
i know he won't like all these things forever, but it sure is awesome now!
dad is quite happy evan wants to practice the second he walks in the door.
and its usually rick saying, "thats enough for today boy."

i've come a long way

i never would have let jess or lily out of the house looking like this.
but ruby is #5 and
if she wants to dress herself its all good with me.
she did ditch the scarf but we did go out in public like this.
what you can't see is the zebra striped clip that pulls the whole outfit together.

i cleaned my house, really i did.

yesterday i cleaned my house. like i always do on mondays. but then i got a phone call. it broke my heart and made my stomach hurt. and i basically quit for the rest of the day. i want to be better at blogging. i want to remember all the little things that make life so perfect and beautiful. i love my family. with all my heart. hard things make us stronger, and they change us. they change us so we can become more like our Savior. i love my little sister and i love my sweet nephew that was born yesterday. calvin craig sorensen.
