We love missionaries! We feed them at least 2 times a month. I've fixed pants, and shirts, and cut hair. Some of our missionaries we still keep in touch with through Facebook. Elder Woody (the really tall guy) has been here over 7 months, spent Christmas with us and had blessed our home over and over with his amazing spirit. His testimony radiates and I feel like I'm sending one of my boys off. Elder Poch is one of the Spanish speaking elders. We have them over less often because we share then with the other ward. But we love him as well. He gets along with Ruth so well. He also spent Christmas with us. We will miss them but look forward to hearing about all the good they will do where ever they go!

Licence to drive

Ethan passed his drivers test on April 28th. It was a very exciting day!

Pink eye and mothers day

Ruth missed an entire week of school due to pink eye. Neither of these pictures shows it at its worst. It was so bad for a while there was no white in her eye only red. On Monday when I told her she wasn't going to school she said,  "it's my lucky day! " only Ruth would think having pink eye was lucky. But after a week home with mom, getting drug to do my stuff. .. I think she may have a new appreciation for school. That, and she got to hear that her friends were learning about a lot of animals, as they are preparing for their field trip to the zoo. So I think she is excited to go to school Monday!
Today being mothers day, while I  was preparing to go to church, Ethan made breakfast.  We all sat down to eat and Brock passed out. I ran to catch him so he wouldn't fall off the bench. As I held him he started to jerk some. Larry and I thought he was having a seizure. He came to and we took him to the hospital. We spent the morning there instead of church. But everything came back ok. The Doctor told us that passing out like this is called Syncope. It can be caused by lots of different things and they didn't see anything abnormal in any of his tests. We are so glad everything is ok and he's well! We are truly blessed! When the kids came home from church (Ethan took them to church since he got his licence last week.) Ruth and Hayden gave me these mothers day fun facts about mom papers. I love it. Ruth said my favorite food was smokies, and my favorite store was costco. But I really love that both of them said the one thing I hear my mom day a lot is "I love you. "
