I got to go to the baptism of Kaitlyn Meyer tonight and it was a great experience. I saw neat because before it started I told her mom if she needed me to take the babies (her grandchildren) I would because this was a convert baptism. I was in the hall with the baby during the last part but so was another sister. She has been inactive for a few years. She came with 2 of her little kids and did not get a whole lot out of it. I remember praying during the service that Heavenly Father would let her feel the spirit. I have been there I know how it feels to go to a church thing where you are so desirous to feel the spirit but you kids make it difficult. Hopefully She did and it will make her choice to attend even more of a reality

great night

it started off with swimming at the Y. the older 4 with Chris and I we had a blast. Then home for pizza. Kids off to bed and then The new Sherlock Holmes movie, which I actually was pretty fond of. It was great to do low key things and still have a great time.

I know I know I am behind. Life has been crazy. Today I finally caught up on all the laundry in the house. I think there were about 4 loads of towels. OK I am not done because I think I have 5 big blankets I need to wash too. Oh the joys. Life has been good. I am so tired but it is good. Chris has been home less as his internship is keeping him really busy. He gets to go to trial next week. I am so excited for him and this opportunity. The kids have been loving getting back to normal after Chris and my trip. I keep being reminded that things never seem to slow down. . . only speed up. Even though we are busy I am happy. right now I sit in a clean front room, kitchen and dining area too. So happy about that.

We had a great time! Being without the responsibility of our kids for 48 hours was great! Henry did get sick while we were gone but thanks to wonderful friends Lindsay got some help. The best part other than just being with Chris was when we went to the temple. There was a blind man on our session who sat right next to Chris. Chris got to help him out. It was wonderful to watch so many people help out this man. It made me realize in a small way that just as this man relied on the workers and others we rely on Heavenly Father and Jesus so much more. So thankful for the gospel. So thankful for Lindsay. So thankful for Chris. I am one lucky woman

Tonight as we were listening to the Piano Guys - So Happy. I decided to start Dancing with Henry. He was all smiles and even giggling a little bit. Loved how happy he was (along with the other kids) It is a great memory, only wish there was a photo taken. Hopefully because I wrote it down there will always be this memory in my mind.

I worked so much today. I enjoy teaching. I really do. It made me so sad to leave Henry in the Child Watch as much as I did yesterday. Luckily Lindsay was there with him. But Chris was so great and got Lindsay when she was done. Loved that.

Fathers day

I am surrounded by some of the best Fathers I know. Obviously my Dad. He is one of my greatest cheerleaders ever. and I know he always will be. the next is the dad to my kids. Chris is awesome. I love him so much and am so thankful for him in my life. The next man is my grandfather. Forrest J Jensen. He is a wonderful man. I was teaching a lesson today on Alma 5 and we were talking about seeing the light of Christ in our eyes. and having his image in his countenance. This is my Granddad. He is one of the best men I know. I am so lucky to be his posterity. I love him and only wish I knew him better.

An awesome night

Friends in our ward watched the kids so Chris Lindsay and I could go out. It was fun. We ate at cheesecake factory. Lindsay is like her father here so guess what happened. She paid. We were so thankful for that!!! then we just walked around the mall looking for stuff in department store or where ever. To be able to look without children was awesome!!! It was just fun to be with them both. I will miss Lindsay when she leaves next Sunday. The Scott household will be sad to see her go :(

I had my last class of how to be a group exercise instructor. I had to pass the test to "officially" be able to teach. I passed with an 88. I was a bit bummed because had I gotten 1 more right I would have gotten a 90. But taking this class made me realize how much I miss going to classes and learning things.

I love love love teaching my class. I am so happy when I teach

a great day!

first off I ran 2 miles and did a cardio class with Will loved every min. He talked and talked and talked. About everything. WE talking about how running is good for your heart and your body. Then he says well if it is good for your heart and body is it good for our spirits. I told him yes, because if we take the time to think about stuff without the music we can really hear the spirit. Then hey says because the spirit has not been in our home a lot lately because we are yelling and wineing. I love how perceptive he is. He can tell that something is missing and say hey mom step it up.

Then Chris and I went on a 16 + mile bike ride for our date. It was great! Des Moines has great trails here. Loved being with him and talking, and getting exercise. Then we got frosty's at Wendy's. made me think of my parents. What a great night .

our ward

So as Chris was saying prayers tonight he thanked Heavenly Father for our ward. We really do have a great ward. They have been so kind to us. from sending a daughter to sit with us when we both spoke in church to bringing us meals after Henry (to almost complete strangers) to just talking with us. They are great. we love this ward. But hey I have said this about so many wards. . . Hopefully we will get to be here as long as possible and enjoy the great people in it

So I've been having a rough few days. and I was saying somethings to the kids about how I was sorry I had been grumpy, a bad mom etc. As we are walking through Walmart Jeffrey says I love you anyway mom, and I will be OK without a treat. You are the best mom ever. Way to melt my heart Jeffrey. I love you!!! and am so lucky to be your mom
