Many blessings.

We have seen The Lord bless us a lot the last couple of weeks. I want to write it down so I don't forget. 

I was picked for the implementer a club by Tina Forsyth. It's a $2000 program and I get it for free

Sydney was on fox 31 news and got two free balance bikes that a therapist had recommended two weeks prior. 

It's the little things that make us grateful for what we have.

Family Fun Day

1. Went to Hammond's candy factory tour. 

2. Walked around the park and played in the playground. 

3. Cafe Rio for a free lunch after a gift card. 

Back home for naps. I love that Tyson has a Monday off. The only sad thing is that the temples are closed. We love going out and missing all the Saturday traffic.

Sunday SeƱoritas

We put the cute Mexican dresses for the girls on Sunday. I taught Sunday school. Tyson attended the seminary kick off fireside and got set apart. All day I kept getting prompted that this next year would teach us a lot but The Lord knows more than we do. He sees the bigger picture and we just see the smaller. Trust is big and for me "trust with a good attitude" is what I will work to strengthen.

Cereal Tradition

Every night Tyson has his cereal - well now he has a buddy. Sydney is an equal lover of cereal and the two of them have a bowl every night. 

Tyson adventures

Tyson has had a busy week! We went swimming on Monday. That day Tyson also made banana bread.

Tuesday I worked and then Tyson attended the RS activity and along with randy libbert and watched 5 girls. This guy is amazing!  He is also still playing soccer with the elders. 

Ah gotta love summer. Seminary starts in two weeks and Tyson is still trying to live it up.

Family walks

This summer we have been doing walks almost every night. It's been such a great tradition. We usually walk to the elementary school park. Both girls adore the swings. We love the warm summer air and seeing the sunset. At 18 months London is still on two naps mostly because I want her to go to bed later so we can walk until 8 pm.

Tyson and I use this time to talk and connect. Some of our best talks happen on these walks.

Little girls

Tyson took some pictures after I left to work at Pats office. I love how the girly side of them come out. They specially love the big ruffle skirts
