life is worth living

This is what I have decided about life. There is much to freak out about, that is what I do a lot. Jacob was running around the house playing with his brothers and I stopped him, and asked quite urgently and annoyanced, "what is going on?" and you know what he replied, he smiled and said,"I am just having fun." So even though there is much to get annoyed about and feel sad about and feel angry about ... there is much to be happy about. When I remind myself about this, I see my boys in a whole new way- it makes me giddy and happy about how lucky I am to have them. Muchly blessed. I wish I could dig out that high strung clot I have in my chest so I don't have to keep reminding myself to just enjoy life.
Here is what we have been up to. With school out, we just like to indulge in our freedom. We went on a hike and picnic at Moulten Falls.

Peter burned his hand on our barbecue. This is his hand after 6 days of healing.
This is the book wreath I made. I have been enjoying crafts these days. This only cost 2 dollars to make. I wish I lived by The Craft Warehouse, but then I know for sure we would be in the bankruptcy land for sure.

I left my husband and boys and traveled to Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois to see my family and be present for my niece Alexa's wedding in the Nauvoo temple. I thought every bit of it was awesome and joyous, except for getting the tick, and having to sit in the seats that wouldn't tip back on the airplane ride home. Boo Hoo.
I got to see my brother Jordan who I haven't seen in 4 years. ANd I got to see my parents, my sister Emily, and my brother brock.
I truelly missed my Jeff and boys, particularly peter who I thought might have an end of the world experience by having his mom leave him... turns out he was happier than he had been in a long time. Interesting. These are my pictures...
