I haven't blogged in almost two weeks and I'm so behind! Graduation was great! I'm so proud of Dave it hasn't been the easiest thing supporitng a family while going to school full time but he did great and we are so excited to be done with school.

Dave's family came out to help him celebrate. It was SO nice. We love hanging out with Marybeth and her kids. All week we got to do fun stuff centered around the kids. We went to a huge ball/ tunnel play area. Honestly I think Dave's dad, Robert, had almost as much fun as the kids playing skee-ball.
Dave got to show off his geologoy knowledge when he took us all to the school's mineral museum.
We also hung out in the motel's pool. Jensen was fearless and kept jumping into the deepend without me.He also liked being thrown up in the air- see his feet:)
Lily started sitting up! And we went to a cute little dianasour museum where the kids got to brush around in the sand to find goodies. Way fun!

Today starts the mad dash to pack the entire house in two days. I just wanted to quickly say how proud I am of my husband and all his hard work. I am so thankful for him and his marathon run to finish school. Yeah for graduating!
I'll post again after we get settled in Colorado.

General Conference !
I love General Conference! I just wanted to take a minute to express how thankful I am. God lives and has a prophet, just like Moses and Abraham, on the earth. I am so thankful God gives us these wonderful men to lead us and to teach us. How can you not feel an intesnse love for a God that has given us men that are incredibly easy to love and to follow.
I loved Susan Tanner's talk on what she delights in. She quoted President Hinkley in saying how wonderful a society we would live in if parents treated thier children as if they were the gifts from our father in Heaven that they are. I told Dave "I need that Framed!" So when I get frustrated at my little gifts I will not want to wrap them up in a box with industrial strength packing tape. Instead, hopefully I will wrap them in a hug. It's something to work on :)
Oh and it snowed AGAIN! Isn't it supposed to be spring?

Forward Movement!

Lily has been slowly progressing toward farward movement in her crawling. She isn't speedy but she does get to where she wants to go - mostly in a rock and flop manner. Yeah for progress!
