Thank you to everyone who has taken the survey! If you haven’t, you can find it here. I love that I didn’t ask for names so it’s completely anonymous yet for the majority of the responses, I can tell who said what. Love it!
My thoughts are definitely all over the place tonight. Kaelyn slept fairly restless last night. It wasn’t until 6:30am that I realized that I never turned the heat on last night. Coldness doesn’t bother her during the day. Just at night. Also, we were hosting family yesterday and today. I love having my family over! I love that I have a house able to accommodate the masses. I love the companionship, closeness, and the good times that we always have. Kaelyn has so much fun with her cousins and loved hanging out with them all. She even enjoyed her aunts and uncles. (Aunt Lindey was most happy that Kaelyn asked to be with her specifically a few times.)
Hosting does take a toll though. My house isn’t completely chaotic as everyone helped tidy up throughout the weekend. Kaelyn didn’t take a nap today (can we say... social butterfly?) but went down to bed super quick an hour earlier than usual (when the masses left). And I’m just tired! I’d be tired even without everyone here just because of how frequently Kaelyn woke me up last night, but the extra excitement of everyone here adds. Wouldn’t trade it for anything though!
It was a great weekend. Stake Conference was this weekend and my notes have lots of red writing. That means I have a lot to work on. I suppose it’d be a boring life if there weren’t anything to work on!
Oh!!! And another thing that made this weekend great was that on my outside Saturday run, I ran 2.5 miles at a 10:41 min/mi pace! I have never run that far that quick. Now I have another four weeks to double my mileage.
Fact: Our speed (download speed? internet speed?) is way faster when there aren’t six computers on it.
Jared just reminded me that everyone loved the soup I made. We barely had any leftovers!
I just want to leave you with this picture of I Am A Child of God. This song has been sung frequently in our home because Kaelyn knows it. In Stake Conference, we were told that if we got up in the morning and sung all the verses to this song while looking in the mirror, we would know the truth contained in the words and it would show through our actions. And I love how it looks.
Please note: this is an image from Etsy (I found through Pinterest). Please do not print it out on your own. Someone took their time to make it and is selling it and it would not be right for us to use it freely. If you are interested in purchasing it, you can do so here. The price is $8 with different color combo.
