Yes, It Must Be Some Kind of Miracle!

It has been so long since we posted to this blog that most of you have stopped looking for updates. Sorry! Some good things that have happened to our family over the last year:

-Clay was called to the Elders Quorum Presidency, he still works for the best boss in town at San Juan Building Supply, and he does an amazing job taking care of our home and family
-Eva started Middle School, turned 12 and is now in Young Women's -Thomas is in 4th Grade, has discovered a love for reading (Thank-you JK Rowling), and is playing Youth Basketball
-Timothy is 4, goes to Pre-school, and has a Girlfriend named Lizzy, that he doesn't mind saying he loves (which Thomas thinks is gross and silly)
-I have lost 40 pounds! Yes 40 pounds over the last year, and I am working on trying to get the last 10 pounds to vacate the premises. I teach Zumba classes at the Wellness Center 4 days a week and I love it! I call it my Zumba "habit"

Our old computer crashed, so I don't have photos for this post, but I will try to have photos for my next post.

Canyonlands and Newspaper Rock

A couple of weeks ago I took the kids to Canyonlands and Newspaper Rock. Clay was at work, and we got a late start, so we didn't do as much as we wanted to, but it was still really fun!!

Summer Fun #3

We've been doing LOTS of reading this summer
Lots of WORK (the kids are sorting dirty clothes)
The kids also have been swimming at the pool A LOT but I don't have pictures of that because I send them when the Toddlers are taking their nap.

Nick Got Baptized!

We are really proud of Nick. He recognized the truth of the Gospel almost as soon as he came to live with us. He was baptized by Elder Reeves from Logan Utah. His Mom and Dad and Grandparents came to witness the Special Day. Nick asked Grandpa Worthy to give the Talk on Baptism, which was perfect and truly brought the Spirit to the meeting. Nick asked Grandma Gail to give the talk on the Holy Ghost and was the proud recipient of one of her special handmade quilts. Since then he has come to recognize what it means to feel the Spirit. He even bore his testimony for the first time yesterday.

Summer Fun #2

We go to the library every Friday to get our prizes for the Summer Reading program. We learned how to make a crystal garden in our summer reading packets. We had fun at the Dinosaur Museum in Blanding.

Summer Fun #1

We have been busy busy busy in June. Here is a taste of what we have been doing this summer:

We took a day to visit every park in the fine city of Blanding (we have 4!). We've never done that before, have you? We also picked up trash at several of the parks that is why the kids have green gloves on. More to come soon..........!!

Birthdays and Other Stuff

We have been busy learning how to be a family of 7, so I haven't had much time for blogging. This weekend we enjoyed a little family time at Cottonwood. Clay surprised me for my Birthday (a month ago) with my "dream bed" I am a lucky woman!!
