Cianna and her pet worm Allie

We spent the night up at the cabin with Grandpa Phil and Uncle James. We caught some fish, played in the stream. Mariah was scared of everything at night. she would not go to sleep, until Travis put her in bed with me she fell asleep instantly. By morning I had her and Cianna in bed with me and Travis was on the floor. The girls said the funnest part was riding in uncle James truck no seat belts on dirt roads! Cianna loved fishing especially the worms. She asked if the worm she was holding could be her pet. Mariah wanted nothing to do with the worms! Fun times. Thanks to my husband who worked hard to make it fun for the kids.

One of my most favorite scriptures

"Be still and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted here on earth"

This scripture brings such peace and comfort in such an unpredictable world,  when at times we don't understand the events of this life and we struggle to understand why things happen. I believe that all things happen for a reason, and that we are not in control God is. He knows our hearts, and our desires. He feels our pain and hears our prayers, and sometimes the answer just needs to be as simple as "Be still and know that I am God"

Cianna's preschool picnic

Cianna had a picnic at young living farms today. Her little friend Blake came up and took her hand and off they went. I heard him teaching her how to skip rocks in the water. She asks to play at his house every time they have school. It was just so cute!

kindergarten graduation and Cianna's preschool picnic.

Mariah was very excited for graduation today until we got there. The aide had to lift her to stand up and move her arms to do the motions for the songs. She did whisper her part though.

Tiny dancer

Cianna was so cute tonight at the recital. She told us we could not smile or laugh. Savannah did a great job with her point routine. This is her first year doing point. I didn't get any pictures at the recital because I had to snuggle and cover Mariah's ears the whole time, but she sat made it through the entire time without asking to go home. We took these pictures of Cianna before we left.
