"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."

A few month back I took this cute picture why subbing in Primary.
Hollie and her friend Tyson.

Today in Primary Hollie got called to help lead the music. Shalece over heard Tyson and Elias talking. Tyson said to Elias, "do you think Hollie is cute?" Elias shrugged his shoulders. Shalece looked at Tyson and said, "why do you think she is cute...?" and he just gave her a cute shy look and said, "yaaaaaah".

I think there might be a little crush going on here!

Hollies first week of Homework. She is doing really well and LOVES school!


I love these days!

Let go surfing now....

Trevor wants to surf so bad. He love it. even if it is on a boogie board.

Strike a pose

Auntie Corinne bought trevor and Hollie some new clothes. This is them showing them off.

Hollie is such a ham.

Nap time.

When it's really hot outside the kids love to be in just their underwear. We went up to have quiet time and they both fell asleep like this. I thought it was so cute. of course I took the picture with my phone so it's not very good.


A couple of weeks ago our Friend Connie Moffat was here visiting from Hawaii so we went to Redlands to see her at out friends Luke and Ashley Moffats. We swam all day and then went to eat. The kids had so much fun.

Hollie and Velzy being silly.

More funny faces.

They were all picking their noses.

His new best friend

My sister got Hollie and Trevor backpacks full of fun stuff. For about a week Trevor would not take his off. He even took it to bed.

Hollie's lunch time

Hollie was telling me about her lunch time.

Hollie: Mom when we are at lunch this lady Mrs Google watches us when our teacher eats her lunch.
Me: is she nice?
Hollie: yah but she always say make sure you eat all your sandwich Me: that's good. then you will get full.
Hollie: She also has hampster teeth.
My thought: where did she hear that? I don't think she even knows what a hampster is.

Dribbling the ball to the goal.

Learning how to do a throw in.

Lance and Trevor played at the park

Hollie put her uniform right on.
