We made her one that we can mail but then everyone else needed one for their upcoming events. Madison for her birthday in a month, Jacob for his in December and Ashlyn until her school begins again. It made for a fun morning of craft making and working together.

My sister is teaching early morning seminary this year. Just thinking of it exhausts me and she has five kids 10 and under. I don't know how she'll manage but she will because she's super Kristie. She texted me after her first day of class ended today that she survived and therefore only has 179 days left. Of course that made me think she most certainly needed a count down chain for the year.

Ashlyn walks into our bedroom this morning carrying two books.
"Where is daddy?"
Usually that answer brings an "oh darn it" and sulking. Not today.
"GOOD!" she exclaimed.
"Why is that good?"
"Because, guess what you get to do now!! Read me a book!"
She climbs up and over the top of me to situate herself and hands me a book.
