All days I miss my grampa but somedays I forget he is gone and wonder what he is doing, and then get hit by a ton of bricks remembering that he isn't on this earth anymore. I sure miss hearing him say "we sure are proud of you guys" "I sure do love you, you are a good kid" My grandpa was an awesome strong man, he taught me that duct and bailing twine will fix everything, and duct tape makes awesome band aids. I hate that my kids wont ever get to meet my awesome grandpa here on earth but I know that he is up there loving on them and teaching them all about duct tape and bailing twine. I really miss his stories.

 I loved how unforgettable you made my wedding day. I miss hearing about all your horses, every time I see a horse i think of you. You were  the best grandpa anyone could ask for. I miss you saying "Heather Feather how is the weather?"

Grampa I sure love you and I am really proud of you. I miss you a lot. Give our babies some loves for us please, but don't keep them up there to long I sure want to love on them!

Yesterday we went with some friends to Lagoon. Lagoon is our only amusement park in Utah. I had so much fun with my hunny, he acts kike a kid that is FINALLY tall enough to ride all of the rides. There have been very few smiles lately and he was just beaming. We are also going back next weekend on the bounce back pass. And then on August 2nd we have a foster care party at Raging Waters WAHOOOO.

I drove out to my home town of Roosevelt after Lagoon. I love Roosevelt it renews my heart and soul. I wish we could move out here sooner rather then later. I am out to pick up stuff wonderful people are donating to sell at our yard sale. So if you are reading this and have stuff for me to pick up in the Basin let me know.

Thank you everyone for your prayers and support

Getting into a different shape.

I have recently been conned by a very dear friend to go walking in the morning so we can be healthier. I woke up before 10am this morning to go walking. Those of you that know me, KNOW that I don't like waking up.  We started walking at about 7:30 and it was already hot! I miss having cool morning and evenings. I currently have quarter sized blisters on my ankles. All I ever wear are flip flops so my ankles don't know how to handle tennis shoes. Maybe tomorrow we should go bike riding, that will be easier on my ankles, but harder on some other parts. We are also considering buying a membership to a gym but I have a REALLY hard time with the amount you pay to join a gym.

I have noticed since being just the two of us + three dogs and some fish that our bedtime has gone out the window. It used to be a rarity for us to be in bed and sleeping after 10pm now it is a rarity for us to even be thinking about sleeping at 10pm. I think I had an easier time making myself clean when we had kids. Dishes certainly got done more then once a week. And I think laundry was more likely to get put away.

We are getting a website built for us for our adoption. with a button so that people can donate to help us get to our goal for adoption. And so people can get to know us a little better. I am super excited!!

yard sale!

We are deciding to start working harder on being able to afford adoption. So we are crazy enough to do another yard sale this year. We are of course requesting donations on things to sell because well we don't have anything to sell. I am so overwhelmed that I have no idea where to start. So if you want to help or have any ideas please let us know.

As I mentioned I am having a hard time cooking with it being so hot and only being the two of us. If anyone has any easy CHEAP easy quick recipes I would love to hear them.

It has been almost a week since we have gone back to just the two of us + three dogs and some fish. I can't remember the last time this house was so quiet, well except when the kids were getting into trouble. Last night Blaine and I started some more foster classes on how to better help youth. The teacher made this statement and it has just stuck with me. "Respect is not how you act but who you are" I have a hard time with "kids these days" and lack of respect. I am a firm believer that everything starts with respect. If you have respect for god, others, and yourself that your behavior will show that.

Currently Blaine and I are unsure where we are going with our life. We are taking at least one more placement and then seeing how we feel about things after that. But until we get kids we are just enjoying each other. I have found it hard to cook for just the two of us though. Sometimes it just seems like such a hassle for two people.

We have been advised of a possible adoption situation. I don't have many details but wouldn't mind prayers.

This weekend we went to my home town. We had a family reunion that the hubby and I helped my dad make a dutch oven dinner for. I sure am blessed to have been raised in such amazing country and to have such an awesome family. I didn't realize how amazing they were until I realized that they weren't the norm.  We played volleyball at this said reunion... I STILLLLLL hurt... I feel I may be getting old. But it was A LOT of fun.
