We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Provo Temple

I had the beautiful, amazing, wonderful privilege of going to the Provo Temple today with Meredith thanks to good people in my ward and their kindness. I really just wanted to post this so that if in the future I do choose to share this with my kids they'll know that going to the Temple is and has always been very important to me.

It was nice to have Meredith there with me and for us to experience that together- even though not a word was really spoken between us. I truly do love the spirit that is in the temple. I cannot explain the feelings any better than anyone else who has gone before me. It is a beautiful place and I hope that I can raise my two boys and whomever else comes and joins our family so that they are worthy to participate in the sacred ordinances at the temple.
