The game is called----"CAN YOU GUESS WHICH ROOM ANDY HAS BEEN IN?" . I bet you will only need one try....Now, in her defense...we did JUST move and there are still plenty of boxes to go through...So Can you guess???
I have actually been amazed at how clean everything has kept. The key is to just clean it when she goes to bed at night. I am so grateful to the relief society for helping with the boxes, the elder's quorum for helping move them and to my husband for doing everything!!! There is still alot to do, but at least we can live in it now and find everything we need.
WE LOVE OUR NEW PLACE AND OUR FUN NEW GAME!!

For those of you who are NOT familiar with this classic, I am SOOOO SORRY!! Go and see it today. We watched it all the time growing up. Pollyanna throughout the whole movie plays this "game" in which she chooses to find the good out of ANY situation she is in, no matter how difficult or stressful it is. As a child, I just thought it was a fun show. As an adult, when my sister-in law let me borrow it to watch the other day, I did not expect to be bawling my eyes out . I love that there is such an example to learn from.
So here are the things I am glad about today:
- My little angel knows her momma
- My sister in law made me dinner and talked with me
- My husband has a steady job
- We have internet at the moment so I can write about this
- My beautiful little nephew Malakai that was just born.
- my primary kids who claimed they will miss me when I leave
- Our new apartment we are moving to
This is more of a grateful list...but it really partains to today. I just needed that to feel less overwhelmed with life. So here's to things to be "glad" about....

It seems to be my lot in life that people who I am very closely connected to have some connection to that OTHER school. Whether it is close friends, boys I had a crush on, fellow missionary elders, or our next door neighbors---there was always someone around to rival with. That other school does not yet seem to understand that BYU is infact number one. They are the best. There is nothing that compares to them.

All I can say is that my eyes were completely opened and I have a brand new appreciation for mothers with more than one kid...especially 4 kids...
Our days started with me waking up at 6 ish so I could make breakfast for the kids...Then at 6:45 we call all the kids for scripture study ( I actually liked that part)...
We sent the highschool kids off to school then sent the others. When they were at school, I tried to feed and bathe Andy, and get prepped for after school. After school consisted of picking up from football, taking to football, soccer practice, scouts, making dinner, eating dinner, cleaning up dinner.....That's just one day. The craziest was on the Thursday. My nephew had a football game and in the middle my neice had to be taken to and picked up from ballet, where right after my other nephew had to be picked up from football, then dinner, then take my other nephew to a class...
It was actually so much fun and I got really close with all of them. As I stated before...I have a whole new respect for the job of a momma. I barely had time to clean up anything. If truth be told Andy was the hardest of all of them...She needed the most attention. I am glad we had such a good time as we are doing the exact same thing next week.....
