our week in review — 29 may 2013

Wow, this week has really gotten away from me.  It seemed to spill over into this week with the holiday weekend.  Last week marked the end of school for the older kids.  Taryn and Hayden finished up their finals and haven’t looked back.  There were parties aplenty so we didn’t see much of them. 

Hailey participated in her school’s talent show and did an awesome job.  She’s quite the performer. ImageTo mark the last day of school, we took a field trip to the Arizona Science Center.  Thomas overcame his fear of the talking skinless human body thanks to Heavenly Father.  The night before we went, he explained to me how afraid he was and that he didn’t want to go.  I suggested we pray about it.  When I asked him about it the next evening, he told me that Heavenly Father granted him his wish.  I tried to explain that Heavenly Father doesn’t really grant wishes as much as he gives us blessings, but he wanted nothing to do with that.  Oh well, as long as he knows it comes from Heavenly Father.

Super strong Thomas

Greg spent the week finishing up our north 40 project.  We now have a beautiful front yard full of poop. 

ImageSaturday we decided to get our of our comfort zone and attend the Phoenix March Against Monsanto.  We joined with over 250 cities around the world to call attention to the perils of genetically modified foods.  If you haven’t done your research, you may want to.  It’s bad news.

We had a lovely Memorial Day spent with family and friends and a quick trip to the pool.  Here’s to the start of summer.  Hurray.
