~My Reason For Our Blog~
"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences." — Gordon B. Hinckley

Sunday Photo

It has been forever since I have sat and blogged, we have lots of pictures of what we have done so far this summer, but not time to blog about them, and this week is not different with my sister and part of her family coming to town.
We had 2 great speakers at church who spoke about parenting. I loved the question the speaker asked, "What are our goals for our children?" He mentioned not only spiritual, but physical and academically. I couldn't help but look down the pew at our girls and wonder what the future holds for them, what kind of example am I for them to follow? What are my spiritual, physical, and mental goals? These great speakers happen to be husband and wife and I admire them both greatly, they are parents of 4 sweet, well behaved children. I have the pleasure of being the primary teacher of the oldest boy. I love his spirit and his testimony he shares in our class.
When we got home from church I asked the girls to sit in front of the flower garden so I could take their pictures before the storm coming got worse. While they sat there the thunder was amazing! It was so loud! The sky was part black as night and the other half was blue with fluffy white clouds, Raychel asked I wonder what side will win? I love taking pictures of the girls, I love their willingness to pose, smile and allow me to capture them forever at this stage. Some days I want time to stop so I can enjoy it a little longer. I am very blessed!!!
