La Push its 'La Push'

Nana and Bopa

Bopa in the surf

Jones and bug

For some crazy reason I decided to go camping while 6 1/2 months pregnant. It was quite the adventure. Painful but fun.

Lead Kindly Light

I was not ever thus, nor prayed that Thou shouldst lead me on;
I loved to choose and see my path; but now lead Thou me on!
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see The distant scene; one step enough for me.
"Lead kindly light"


C and I just got back from the circus. We were fortunate enough to be able to go for free with the laurels. It was really fun and I was surprised by how much C seemed to enjoy it. Actually I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I wish Jones could have been there though. He is spending the next 2 weeks with the National guard, and we miss him. C is going through daddy withdrawels and has been a bit of a handful for me. It was really nice to get out and see a show.

After I got back from Washington I showed my sister some hair clips I had made for October, and she thought they were really good so I should try and sell them at I quickly fell in love with Etsy and artists like flapperdoodle, and now have a few items of my own for sell there.
I don't have a lot of confidence in my own work so it is nice to have my sister's support on this.
I only have about 6 items listed but I have 15 made and hope to crank out some more.
If anything it gives me something to do while I wait out these next two months of summer.

My parents taught me from a very young age to love my country. I grew up with a knowledge that this was a Land promised to us by our Heavenly Father and a place where we could freely learn of his gospel. I am so thankkful for those who gave their lives to the founding of America. Now, more than ever I feel the need to keep a prayer in my heart for my country and those we have entrusted her future. I want my children to still consider it a place where they feel free and safe, from physical and spiritual dangers. I want them to know that I am proud to be an American, and to be able to be proud of this too.
