We have had a great summer. It was way way too short. The kids our growing up so fast. Brandon is a dating machine. He is a junior in High School and will be off and gone on a mission before we know it. Matthew got baptized and it's been wonderful to see the difference it's made on him. Ellie continues to blossom, she is our sweetheart. Michael makes us laugh, we love the 4yr old uncensored attitude towards life, for example, on the way home from church, he is in the back seat and yells, "I call to be the first one to get naked!"
Matthew turned 8 this year. He wanted Brandon to baptize him, Dad to confirm him and me to give a talk. He got his way. It was a very special day, but maybe not to Michael...he was not happy about getting dressed up in church clothes on a Saturday. Thank you to all of our family that came, especially Ben and Mauvia who literally drove through the night and then Mauvia and Zoe performed a beautiful muscial number. Thank you, we love you.
We went to General Conference, well we just stayed on the Temple grounds and listened to Sunday's session. It was a lot of fun. Brent was teasing that I was trying to get our picture in the Ensign, I told him I didn't think that was very funny. What was funny was coming home and finding a picture of Michael pointing at Angel Moroni in The Scroll (BYU-I's newspaper)
