Save the Date

I received a letter in the mail yesterday from our Primary Presidency. They have scheduled all the baptisms for the whole year of 2009. Katie will be getting baptized this year! She is so excited about it. The date they have selected for her baptism will be June 6, 2009! So please save the date. She would love to have all of you, that can, be there for her special day. Time and location will follow when it gets closer!

Please tell me you have done this?

I was having a very productive day yesterday. It had been a busy weekend and I had a lot of housework to catch up on. It was about 1:30 or so and I was feeling pretty good. I got most of the housework done, plus some extra things... Our landlord was coming in the afternoon and I wanted to make sure things were extra tidy. Around 1:50 or so my landlord shows up and we are outside talking. I heard the house phone ring, but I ignored it. Most of the time it isn't anyone I want to talk to anyways. Everyone seems to call me on my cell phone. I got done talking with my landlord and decided to check to see who had called. It said that Michael had called. When he calls on the home phone it usually means he couldn't get a hold of me on my cell. So I went and got my cell phone to call him back. I noticed I had 4 missed calls. Of course I was thinking in my head...."yeesh Mike get a grip! I was just outside!" (He tends to panic when I don't answer the phone.) I also noticed that I have 2 voicemails and a call from an 858 number. I sort of recognized the 858 number as possibly being the kids' school. Oh no! I thought maybe one of the kids was sick and I missed the call. That would explain all the phone calls from Mike. I was half right. It was the school. AND Mike did have a legitimate reason to call me so many times. OOOPS! I forgot to pick up the kids! Normally the kids get out of school at 3:20. On Wednesdays they get out at 1:40! Fortunately I have a fantastic friend who turned around and waited with the kids. I didn't even leave the house until after 2. Fortunately I have very forgiving children. They will be teasing me about it for the next month, but at least they aren't bitter :) Have you ever done this?

Who has control here?

Yesterday we went to Poway Lake. (I will add more about that later) We took Bella with us. Jimmy kept on asking and asking if he could hold her leash. We told him "yes", but he had to make sure he controlled her. As you can see in this picture he did quite well.


Bella decided it was time to play soccer. Hmmmm... who has the control now?
