I love Sundays.
I feel like there is the obligation for us to spend time together as a family- so we do!
We aren't rushed to and fro and can just enjoy the quietness of Sunday.
This Sunday was Mother's Day.
Caity drew me like 100 pictures- some from her, some from Johnny.
And her super cute Primary teacher with great hair and a fantastic sense of humor (OK-so it's me! haha) made a questionnaire for the kids to write about their moms.
Apparently my favorite food is tuna fish!
And I look prettiest with make-up on, and my favorite thing to do is laundry.
She knows me. Haha
But she did get my age right "26 and a half." That surprised me!
William said "Dada" for the first time. And cuddled with John for like 45 minutes
(I think he was a bit confused on who's day it was. So, for my card, John crossed out "mother's" and put "father's" haha.)
John made me breakfast, the kids were pretty excited too:
"Dad makes even better breakfasts than you, mom!"
Yeah- they get cold cereal today. Haha. It was good though!
Whenever I work on the bulletin board or handouts for Primary, it drives me crazy I don't have a paper slicer because all my lines are crooked and sloppy. So when I started working on a Mother's Day handout for the kids, John surprised me with a little paper-slicer thing. It was so thoughtful.
We both were released from our callings and I didn't even cry saying bye to the kids (talk about self control), but a little part of me is breaking inside knowing I likely won't see them after we move- we just have the best primary kids in the whole world.
After church we went on a nature walk.
It was such a beautiful day!
|Deer tracks! Caity wanted to catch one to take to the zoo.|
|John telling me all his hunting stories as we drove by areas he hunted. Like the time he saw the wolf! Ah! I don't know how that is at all cool and not terrifying.|
|I'm in love with this house and it's wrap around porch!|
It was a great day and I am to the moon and back grateful for this little family that calls me "Mom."
