For part of American History this year, we learned about the indians! It was SO much fun! We made indian outfits, a tee pee, clay pots and beads, bows and arrows, corn husk dolls, papoose boards, pouches, and even some great food and games. Here is a cute picture of my TOUGH indians.
Well, after looking at some of the events in the last month, and talking to family and friends I realy feel like my life is in fast forward. I can't believe that I am the mother of 4 at only 28 yrs old and that I own a home, a suburban, a dog, chinchilla, rabbit, and I work as a crossing guard, teach home school, and partner in a leadership buisness with my best friend. I also think that I am not taking the time to enjoy the little things in my day and remember that house work and all that jazz is not REALLY important. I looked at my kids this morning in their church clothes and saw them all cute and ready to go and thought - I AM A LUCKY WOMAN! I am so thankful to live in a country where there is freedom of religion and that I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am so thankful for my health, my home, car, job, neighbors, friends, and family!
We are a CRAZY but having fun being that way family. We have 6 kids. They are Sarah-12, Joseph-10, Hannah-8, Caleb-6, Jacob-3, and Lydia -14 months. We love animals and the outdoors, and homeschooling!
