November just keeps marching along...Thanksgiving is almost here! I can't believe it. Sunday Kate gave the talk in Primary! She was assigned to speak on reverence. But she insisted that she wanted to talk about the First Vision. She drew this picture to share. And I adore it! The caption read, "When Joseph Smith went to the Sacred Grove he was reverent."
We put dyed rice into the sand/water table Millie got for her birthday and it's been a crazy awesome hit!
During our picnic lunch I went to just take a cute picture of the girls when another fly over happened. I caught the girls wonder and a bit of fear on camera. Kind of a perfect capture.
Tim's schedule has been kind of rough this month. He's working inpatient wards on the oncology floor. Every fourth day he has a 30 hour shift. It kind of stinks but I'm proud to say we are trying hard to not let it get us down too much. I went to bed Friday night realizing that we hadn't made any plans for Saturday. Tim was going to be gone the entire day/night so I knew we needed to make some fun plans. Saturday morning I proposed several ideas to the girls including hiking, donuts, the children's museum, the zoo and going to the Disney Store. To my delight they chose hiking! So after a quick donut stop we headed to one of our favorite little hikes at Hole in the Rock. It's short enough I figured I could do it with the three kids on my own. We had the best time! The girls just loved it and Henry was so happy in the carrier. It was a little bit of a proud moment for me. Although I feel like I generally do a good job of moving forward, making plans and not sitting around during Tim's long hours as we hiked today it felt especially good. I truly am so fortunate! And although Tim can't be around much this month I am lucky to have three other pretty cute kids to keep me company!
