This has been such a crazy busy month! Cameron, Rachel and I all decided to auxilliary this month. I am helping Cameron and Rachel finish up their time. Cameron ended up in Arizona until the 13th so he is playing major catch up. Rachel ended up getting a full time job so her evenings are spent playing catch up.
We had the memorial and this past weekend we had our circuit assembly. It was so encouraging. For our circuit, both A and B parts we had over 700 auxilliary in April. Combine that with our over 200 pioneers and we had more people pioneering in April than filled the auditiorium that day. AWESOME! The assembly had so many good points: simplify, make room for pioneering, get your advice only from Jehovah not worldly self-help books, read the bible daily, consistent family worship night! Whew, so much to work on.
Reuben's house is under full construction now. The boys and I helped him Friday tear out a bunch of drywall and remove old wall studs. He and Cameron are there now rebuilding walls. They say the upstairs will be move in ready by the end of the week. We shall see if that happens. It is so great having them here. Reuben's daughter is loving the outdoors and Aunt Carol's house. And Reuben's son is just the cutest thing ever!
Spring is popping up everywhere. Baby animals are running around fields. I planned on a day to go photo hunting but it is supposed to rain for the next few days. BOO! Hopefully by the end of the week I will get to go. There is a field with little sheep running and kicking and I so wanted to get over there. Hopefully they don't grow too much in the next few days.
We have flowers growing like mad in all of our flower beds. We aren't quite sure what some of them are yet but we are anxiously awaiting the buds to open. My hydrangea bushes are sprouting, I can't wait until they are in full bloom.
The seeds we planted for the garden are growing nicely also. In the next week or two the garden is going to be leveled, tilled, and ready for planting. Woo Hoo! We are so excited for that.
Today I went on a field trip to the State Capital with Z.'s class. It was a very whirlwind field trip, 2 hours to the capital, 2 hours back, left only 3 hours to tour the State Capital Building and the Museum. Whew. It was interesting though. The Capital Building is over 130 years old and has been restored to look exactly the same as it did the year it was built. Awesome architecture and decor.
That is our month in a nutshell. Busy, busy, busy but almost over. One final weekend that is packed full with too many activities. Anniversary party, going away party, three festivals, and hopefully some moving in. What's a family to do?
Love and miss you all!
