Sweet Souls


My sweet parents were kind enough to put two of my younger sisters on a plane last week and fly them down to see me. I'm a bit spoiled considering I had only lived in Arizona for 2 1/2 weeks when they came. I missed everyone so much though! So Grace and Chlo'e came to stay and play. The problem about playing here now is that it is 110 degrees on a daily basis. So going to the park just isn't what it used to be. (But it will be sweet in a few months!) So we went to the pool when we could, and we went to the mall and rode the two story carousel. And they came with me to swimming lessons every day. Lez and Linc took lessons for the last 6 days of a session. By the time we moved here most of the sessions were over. So we were lucky to get in 6 days. There were a few days that I was really sick and Grace and Chlo'e were so kind to me. Each night they would say, "Wake me up when the kids get up so you can go back to sleep." How nice is that?! I hated being a bit out of commission while they were here, but it really helped me to get better faster because I had extra sleep and extra help with the kiddo's when we were just hanging out.

Grace and Chlo'e are two of the loveliest souls to come to this earth. They are so kind, helpful, fun, goofy, and so quick to serve. They are always looking for opportunities to help someone. So imagine how great my life is just by being their sister! They are every bit as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside. I love them so much and can't wait for them to come and visit again soon!

Hey it was good to hear from you! Sorry it took so long to reply. So Mesa huh? that should be fun. I have a cousin that's a physician’s assistant there and she loves it. well we were in Philly just for the summer for my husbands job but I'm back in utah now. Your family is too cute, I look at you guys and think... that will be us soon! 3 kids wow, how is it for you? I'm scared! ha I'm sad that I won't be using Dr. Jones this delivery as I've moved to Richfield to be close to my family. He was a great doctor. Anyways, we'll have to keep in touch. Good luck in Mesa!
