It's for real

Well I guess it's for real. And I don't know if that is good or bad... We got our first pay check today from Provo School District. It was so awesome, we decided to go to celebrate the loot for FHE... Grammy T came with us to share in the spoils too. She's behind the camera, hiding if you ask me; being "helpful" if you ask her.

Anyway so there we were with our coupon in hand, sharing a meal by the Pizza Factory as a family. Good stuff. So glad they finally came to P-town.

Usually the little chickens have a lot to say at dinner and a bunch of songs they want to rehearse, and tonight didn't disappoint. Rachel wanted to tell us about her topic of discussion in preschool: a story about a guy named Paul Onion. I obviously missed this one in my childhood and listened and watched as her face crunched up as her brain processed what she had said..."Er, Paul Bunyan," she corrected herself with a hint of question. It was great.

After dinner we came home and made Titles of Liberty. It was neat to see the ideas the girls had as to what they thought was the most important things in this world to them personally. They made them from green and purple paper, crushed and rubbed with a brown crayon to make it look dirty. Then they worte on them promises to Choose the Right because they loved so many things but mostly mentioned the love they had for all of their family members.

We have great kids!

Thanks for the invitation/diversion! Your insistence helped me put aside those worries, concerns, dramas that had been plaguing me all day.
Love you!
