Well, hello again! How are you? I’ve missed you. We’re enjoying summer, but here I am in July - finally catching a moment to breathe and reflect on the beautiful season spring was. Spring Break in April was the perfect time to rejuvenate and get our wits about us in order to jump into the busy end-of-school-year mayhem. Jared took the kids on a ride or two through the yard in this rig. I loved watching Luke’s face through it all; he was pretty nervous, but yet I know he really enjoyed it.

I love picnics in the yard and find myself doing them a lot these days.
The kids and I took the four hour drive to "The Flying Pig Farm" in Kuna, Idaho to visit my mom & Grandpa Brad for the first time as a new married couple. As Carlie likes to say, "Wow...just wow.” (She is so funny about life; I love her grateful heart.) I fell in love with Kuna and the feeling I had there. I know Heavenly Father’s hand is in all things; I find great comfort knowing that my mom has a special companion by her side. With each step I take through this journey, perspective is altered. Blessings are emerging through the heartache, and I’m learning that God’s plan knows no bounds.
I foresee many great trips ahead of us to Kuna, and I’m grateful that my children have another grandpa to love in their lives.
