Where to begin?

OK, I have failed miserably in keeping my blog up.  And I am sad about that.  I know not very many people read it, and I am totally fine with that, because I don't blog for that reason.  I blog so my kids can enjoy looking at it and reading their mother's point of view on everyday life. I blog so I can have a record of big things and little things that go on in my family's life.  I am not good at writing in my journal.  I did write in it as a teenager and then I went back in my mid-twenties and reread them and threw them away or ripped out and destroyed most of the pages.  (Obviously, I wasn't proud of all the things I had chosen to write about)  But, now that I am 39, I feel I have a better grasp on reality than I did when I was 17, and can express myself much better...I love that about getting older. 
Anyway, where to begin?????  Well, we got a missionary out in the field!!!

This is Elder Schramm.  Cute, huh?

The family at his farewell.  Red eyes, but happy eyes.

Look what we got last week! A picture!! We were so excited to see that face!  He says everyone says he is so tan, and now I can see why.  He is loving it and is working hard.
In other news, Bridgete had a field trip to Rhoad's School.  It was great.  It is one of my favorite field trips to chaperone.  I love seeing all the kids dressed up in their 1890's outfits.  Bridgete looked like she would fit perfect in that era. 
Bridgete and her best friend Briella were chosen to do the flag salute.  They were adorable and took their roles very seriously. 

Here is Bridgete playing with hoops.  She LOVED it.  Can you tell?  Once she got the hang of it, no one could catch her.

And here we are together.  I love this girl!
