Happy to be a Mom!

I love this thought from President David O. McKay

"She, who can paint a masterpiece or write a book that will influence millions -- deserves the admiration and the plaudits of man. But she who rears a family of beautiful sons and daughters, whose influence will be felt through generations to come, long after paintings have faded, and books have been destroyed she deserves the highest honor that man can give, and the choicest blessings of God. In her high duty and service to humanity, she is co-partner with the Creator himself."

Goodbye Provo

Goodbye Provo!
We'll Tomorrow the movers come and pack us up and then we are off for a fun 5 filled weeks of vacation that include Sacramento, DC, Prince Edward Island and best of all our families. We are excited!

We officially leave for Singapore on September 1.

Next Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday Devin will take the California Bar if you remember please send a prayer his way. He has been studying all summer and I know he will do great, but a few extra prayers won't hurt.

We have had a busy few days packing, packing and packing and seeing friends almost every night. I am a little sad of saying goodbyes and my children are just starting to realize that they arn't going to see their friends for a while which is heartbreaking.

But we are very grateful for the time that we have had in Provo and we will miss you! We will miss the beautiful "Y" that is out our front porch and BYU which has been so good to us. We will miss our nice neighbors and the wonderful friends that we have had these last few years. We love you all and are so grateful for you. Thank you for being a part of our lives.

We are very excited for our new adventure to Singapore and thank goodness we know it is the right place for us. We know Heavenly Father has a purpose for us there. It will be awesome. We hope you will all come visit soon!

We got to go see one of our friend's receptions last week, Congratulations Kaleb and Kate see you in DC!
Here is a picture of my ANAA Group (Ashley, Naomi, Aubrey, Ashley, and Aleta) we met together about every other week all year long, It has been so fun! We were all in the same Married student ward together 4 years ago. Miss you guys already.

Playing at the lake in the mud and water, so fun. We also found a patch of quick sand at the lake, and three of us were up to our thighs in about 1 second. So cool right, haven't you always wanted to say that you have stepped into quick sand.

During the Fourth of July Fireworks Spencer decided he wanted to be a Firework. The video is difficult to see but this is his rendition of a firework. It is difficult to see but he jumps around and makes firework noises the sounds are just as fun.
