I enjoyed watching this cardinal through our front window. It would fly back and forth gathering small twigs from this small japanese maple to our bigger trees in the back. Then it would stop and get a worm and then go back. It stopped and looked at me through the window for a while and then finally moved on. I took this photo through the window so it isn't as crisp as it would be if I had been outside. However, I probably wouldn't have gotten a shot at all if I had been outside. To me it was fascinating to watch.

Busy Busy Busy is how I would describe this day! I ran from activity to activity and from store to store. It was all worth the run around for a wonderful evening with the cub scouts at the Blue and Gold dinner. The Chili was super and the boys were great! I loved the skits! Hats off to all the Cubs and their families and the wonderful cub committee!

Yesterday Lydia asked me to take her picture in front of out weeping cherry tree that is right outside our front door. I tried but the batteries were both dead so today we took a picture. Notice the beautiful blooms! She is truly a beautiful bloom. Lydia has three loose teeth and can't wait to lose them. Unfortunately she won't let anyone touch them. They will probably hang there for along time unless something accidental happens to change their future.

Today was so beautiful. I went through the house opening all the windows. So the smell and cleanness of Spring could enter in. Then the cleaning bug came in and whispered now is the time to clean. So I cleaned Lydia's room. I went through all the drawers and the closet and got rid of everything she didn't or couldn't wear any more. I love the way her room looks and feels. It encourages me to start on my room and other places in the house. I love the feeling of Spring!!!!

If you think about your future and if nothing happens to change it what will it be like? Where will you be? Who will you be with? What type of job will you have? Where will you live? What kind of car will you drive? These are tough questions to ask yourself. If you like where you are and what you are doing then stick to what you are doing. If you don't like what you see in your future say, "Hell No" and then change you future by changing today. This is the conversation we had with one of our children. To help him see what his future may look like if he doesn't get serious about school. If you look forward or back you will find that the choices you have are because of the education received or not received. And yes Willy Math, Social Studies, English and all your other classes will effect your future. I say to him as well as to myself and to any reader think about your future if you don't like it change it. It is your future and you can change it!

This morning, I did something I have never done before, or I can't remember doing before, I sent the kids to church without me. I hadn't slept most of the night and had experienced the wonderful effects of food poisoning or a stomach bug. It is so nice to have another driver. Bill had left earlier for meetings so the kids could still attend and I could get over the sick feelings. I hope the kids were well behaved in sacrament meeting, because some weeks they get giggling or talking so much they disturb others. But I'm in full confidence that they were good. I missed church but I didn't want to have a....... you know what I'm talking about at church. Well this evening I have been feeling better and hope to have a better day tomorrow.

Hey its, Em. My mom is sick today so I am doing the blog for her.
- I went to a dance audition for our areas youth celebration event. (I found out that I am not meant to dance ballet, but I can handle a Mexican hat type dance much better)
- While I was out, the family did amazing work on cleaning the basement.
- I had possibly my last basketball game of my youth basketball career. :( We didn't win, but its okay! I do it for fun not to win.
- After sending everyone to bed Lydia and Dad sat down to write a talk for Primary together. Dad needed a lot of help! Just kidding!!!!

It's been a wonderful day! I have been so blessed to feel the Spirit today. I just love that feeling when you are teaching and the spirit testifies of the truth and you point it out and the spirit feels even stronger. It's like the feeling sticks and you hate it to leave. That's the way it felt today in primary as we listened to the prophet, president Monson in video clips today!
It was sad to see Uncle Norvel and Aunt Karen leave today. They have some cool things to do on the itinerary and hope that they have a wonderful time in DC tomorrow. Lydia sure loved playing Yamslam with them. It was like she found another set of grandparents
