I am grateful for Jesus Christ. For his example, teachings, love, and atoning sacrifice!

“ The Lord is my light, my all and in all. There is in his sight, no darkness at all. He is my Redeemer, my Savior, and King. With saints and with angels his praises I’ll sing. The Lord is my light; He is my joy and my song. By day and by night. He leads, he leads me along.”

Wonderful message from our dear prophet, President Russell M. Nelson inviting us to show gratitude over the next 7 days. I am grateful for President Nelson, and his prophetic calling to guide us at this time.  I am grateful for his words of healing, peace, hope, and love.

Don’t text and run

Don’t text and run 🏃🏼‍♀️ 

These past few weeks have been a little busy here! Jon has been out of town for a few weeks now and I started a yoga certification program (which is amazing!) on top of all the running around of our day to day life: household chores, school, homework, teaching, and be my kids taxi service 😉... Luckily Logan is an amazing teenager who is so helpful! I could not do it all without him. 
In effort to multi task/ and cram as much I as can in as little amount of time as possible, I decided to go on a quick jog before my phone call with Julien. As I was texting him to let him know I tripped and fell pretty hard on my leg and hand. 
Running as fast I do it could have been a lot worse, but it must have looked pretty funny as I saw my feet go past my head nearly touching the pavement in front of me. 😆 (On a brighter note I didn’t think my back could bend that far anymore) 
Determined to get my run in before my phone call, I picked myself up and finished my last 3.5 miles. And I rocked it! ❤️💨 🏃🏼‍♀️ 🤜

Pointe class

This week was a very exciting week for me. I started a new pointe class at the studio. 
It was a goal for me to start a pointe class at Pure Energy Dance Studio for a long time. And the time had come where girls were strong enough to get on pointe. 
The girls were so excited also.
I cannot wait to see their progress and develop this new skill.



 Meet Kiki! As I was looking in Kiki’s card journal, I found this cute note she wrote. I love that she wants to grow and be faithful and righteous, kind, safe, true, good, helpful, and more good things.... 

truth is she already is that and much much more! 

Love this beautiful human!

Endless turn arounds

Jon has been out of town for the past few weeks working on some turn around for DOW.
It has been hard to Jon be out of town for this long. It is hard on him, hard on me, and hard on the kids.
I have had to do a lot more and rely a lot more on the kids, especially on Logan.
We tried to do some FaceTime but since he is working nights and sleeping during the day it has not been easy.
Monday, Jon was able to come home for 2 days after 14 consecutive nights. Although he was still jet lagged and slept quite a bit, it was so great to have him here for a few days.
Another 14 days to go til he is home again...
Although I am complaining because it is hard, I am so grateful that he has a job and is able to provide for our family. It is a huge blessing!
