David and I were talking tonight how we're so ready for Fall, especially for Fall meals! That's it, regardless of the high temps, I'm making chili this week.
There hasn't been much going on around here other than the normal everyday hustle and bustle. I have neglected to mention that I am teaching preschool again. It kind of happened at the last minute and I have a full class! We've been in school for a month now and it's going well. I have 7 boys plus Natalie so it can get a bit crazy and exhausting. Natalie is a huge flirt and loves all the attention. It's a little worrisome. And Anna is handling it the best she can, which isn't great most of the time. :) It's just 2 days a week and that is perfect.
Cyrena has been spending a lot of time with David lately, which thrills her. David took her to a Diamondbacks game last week. The McKay's came as well so Cyrena had a friend. They had a great time.
Then last Friday David took Cyrena and Natalie to our local high school football game (we live about 2 minutes away). It was a rematch of last year's State Championship game so that was fun for them to see. Our high school is really good and some priests in our ward on are it, so lots of ward members were there.
One morning I came out of the shower and found Anna like this. She usually just sits up and plays but she must've given up on me!
1. Cyrena is always trying to delay bedtime, it's a bad habit of hers that we are constantly trying to break. One night she came out and asked for a drink of water. We told her to go ahead. Then she proceeds to tell us very very dramatically with wide eyes and dramatic facial expressions:
"Before bed you have to make sure your tummy is REEEEEALLY full so that you can survive through the night because you can't eat AAAAANYthing all night long."
2. A few weeks ago, David and I went for our temple recommend interviews at the stake offices. The stake president took David into his office first and when David came out, I went in. The girls were just sitting in the foyer right outside the office.
When my interview was finished, I came out and said "ok girls, are you ready?"
Natalie said, "yep" and marched right into the stake president's office and sat herself down in a chair. He sweetly indulged her and proceeded to 'interview' her.
"Do you listen to your mommy and daddy?" "mmm-hhmm" (nodding)
"Do you like to go to church?" "mmm-hmm" (nodding)
"Are you nice to your sisters?" "mmm-hmm" (nodding)
"Do you love Jesus?" "mmm-hmm" (nodding)
"Well I think you're a great little girl, thanks for talking with me!" "ok, it's Cyrena's turn!"
Of course Cyrena knew what was going on and that she didn't need an interview. David and I were cracking up, it was something we'll never forget!
