Tonight we invited a family over for Family Home Evening around our firepit. We had a lesson, scripture, sang a song and prayed. For dessert, we made smores. The evening was truly delightful until I glanced at our back door and saw that it had been left open, WIDE open for an hour. When we went in for the night, we discovered MASSES of flies and fly villages all over our kitchen and living room and a meandering group had canvassed the upstairs. So Joseph swatted for well over 30 minutes straight, while I swept up the fly remnants behind him. I had to get out the vacuum and vacuum the carpeted areas as he swatted in the carpeted areas downstairs and upstairs. We counted 50 flies in the first dust pan group and then quit counting after that. It was nasty and it made me itch all over. Sick!
I am honored to be married to my husband extraordinaire Joseph, for 15 years. Our joy is full (most days) because we are blessed to have these children in our family: Joshua (12yrs), Emma (10 yrs), Caleb (7yrs), and Elizabeth (5 yrs.). I enjoy camping with my family, cooking, reading, playing and teaching the violin and blogging. Our story began over 15 years ago at Ricks College. We have moved 9 times in 14 years, but have come full circle to the city where we were married and sealed in the LDS temple.
