We've Begun....

Swim season is upon us.

 We've started swim team practice.
The boys are thrilled to be in the water.

Both have been praised about their improvement in skill.
We are hoping for a wonderful year!

Egg Roll

My parents started a tradition of rolling eggs.

After the eggs were dyed and the meal eaten, 
we'd go to the driveway and roll our favorite egg. 
 
The rules would change from year to year.
One year you could roll your egg
until the shell broke then you were eliminated.

One year we got really adventurous
by climbing the hill in the backyard.
All the boiled eggs blew up going down the hill.

Hurricane insisted they by colored before rolling them.
They dyed their eggs and called their cousin via FaceTime
to roll eggs with them.

I'm nostalgic and like to remember to build
from the good memories for our future.

Between Sessions

Between General Conference sessions, 
we were invited to go and swim.
 
The boys are looking forward to swim team.

They also like to play around.

SisterSuzy suggested that we have an activity 
to look forward to between sessions.

This hit the spot.

Put your Trust....to Do Good


And now, verily, verily, I say unto thee, put your trust in that Spirit which leadeth to do good--yea, to do justly, to walk humbly, to judge righteously; and this is my Spirit. Verily, verily, I say unto you, I will impart unto you of my Spirit, which shall enlighten your mind, which shall fill your soul with joy; And then shall ye know, or by this shall you know, all things whatsoever you desire of me, which are pertaining unto things of righteousness, in faith believing in me that you shall receive.

Soccer Pictures

Soccer season has ended.
I learned a new skill on how to coach.
 
Hurricane was patient with me
as I learned how to be a better Mom.
There were times when during practice
he needed a Mom and not a coach.

Hurricane loved soccer.
He was aggressive and focused.
He wanted to have the ball.
He learned to pass when he absolutely had to pass.

Underfoot had a huge learning curve.
He practiced and played games at the same time we did.
His coach said he had heart and never gave up.
He learned new skills and tried so hard.
We are thrilled with his growth and can do attitude.

Homemade Ice Cream

Sweetheart got an ice cream maker for Christmas.
We made ice cream the first time. 
It was yummy and creamy basic vanilla.
