It slept in a beautiful meadow with magical, glittery flowers.
It lived in a forest of candy canes, lollipops, & fairy dust.
And this lovely, sweet pony had magical powers.
Do you see how boring it is? A magical pony with fur.
Most girls love the stories like this. So boys, be glad you're not a girl!

Preston loved finding golf balls. There is a golf course on the other side of the trees. Looks like there have been several terrible golfers in these parts!

Anyone who has read this blog I'm sure knows about the Reading Bowl. What a wonderful experience this was for Maysen. Mike put together a video for the families of the Reading Bowl team. He finished it today. Here it is! Thanks Mike for working so hard on this! I love you! And Maysen, you were amazing to watch!

Usually I wake up at 6 in the morning.
I rubbed my eyes & looked at my clock.
I was deeply surprised. I sunk into a shock.
It said it was 8. 8:00 in the night!
It was 8 PM such a beautiful sight.
I missed the bus! There's NOT any sorrow.
Then my mother walked in & said, "Have a good Sunday tomorrow."
So I waisted my Saturday sleeping in bed.
When these thoughts of my Saturday fell into my head.
I found it was a nightmare & I exclaimed "Phew!"
Then I glanced at my clock . . . And found out . . . It's true!

Jorja got her soccer team pictures taken today. The cheapest package was $20. I asked the photographer how much just a team picture would be. $15. I kind of made a face and said, "My husband's out of a job, can I just take a picture when you do?" They let me do that, which was really nice. Later, Jorja's coach came up to me and said he wanted to get Jorja's picture for us. That was super nice! Jorja didn't want to have it done though, I had already made a big deal about how it would be better to only have the team photo. Then the photographer came up and offered to take her picture for free. Again, super nice! Jorja politely declined. How wonderful to have so many people who don't really even know us offer their help if we need it.

Preston is mad at me right now. Tomorrow is the Language Arts portion of the CRCT for Maysen and Stockton. Preston would not stop crying, so I went in and took him out of his room. I gathered all his things. As I was carrying him out, in the sweetest voice he said, "Thank you Mommy." I walked to his old room and put him in his crib. He is NOT happy with me. He is screaming as I type this...but what was I to do?

Today is a special day. It is Easter. The Easter Bunny left me a basket of yummy things this morning, but that’s not why it is special. I went hunting for Easter eggs this morning, but that’s not why it is special. Easter is special because Jesus was resurrected. Because of Jesus I can be resurrected too. I love Easter and Jesus. I know Jesus loves me.
Stockton had Family Home Evening tonight. He did a lesson on Nephi and Laman. He had different situations and asked one person to act like Nephi and then the next person to act like Laman. For example, you are asked to come to the table for dinner. Nephi says, "Yes, I will go to the table. I know you will not put anything on my plate except you should prepare a way that I can eat it." Laman says, "Dinner is gross! I hate dinner! I will not eat it! You can't make me!" You get the idea. During the week we will point out behavior that is like Nephi vs. behavior that is like Laman. The kids loved the lesson . . . although they all loved being Laman the best.

Here are the kids in front of their Great-Grandma & Grandpa Smith's grave. Their Great-Grandpa died before Mike was born. Mike is named after him. Their Great-Grandma died when Mike was a baby.
We looked the longest for Great-Grandma & Grandpa Hirschi's grave. Jorja~the Superfinder found it. Grandpa Hirschi died about 6 years ago. Grandma Hirschi died 4 years ago. One year before Sharen.

It was pretty fun hanging out with Ange and seeing where John & Cassie are going to be living. I need to start paying attention to Settlers now, so I will end.
