Jackson at almost 7 is such a good boy, still trying hard to be like Jesus, he has a hard time being grateful for what is given him and often gets angry when he doesn't get his way but for the most part is a very helpful good big brother.

Hey everybody look at me!
The reflection on the water was so beautiful and the sillouette was so fun! Jenny and Jack having fun in the water!
Run fast here comes the wave... They were all trying to get away unfortunately Jordan didn't quite make it and got pulled under by the wave... He was done after that was pretty traumatic for him and the salt water burned his little eyes!
Jackson teaching his little sister how to play in the surf, such a cute little relationship between brother and sister!
This is a very rare sight and I felt so blessed to capture it on film! These two really love each other!
It was fun to see Pete enjoy his little family and relax! Water was perfect and the cooler weather wAs so welcome as we left temperatures of 109 in Tucson!
Juliet was having so much fun running and chasing the waves in and out! She had so much fun as did the little boys!

Today I don't have aid true to go with my blog, but I wanted to write about my scripture reading this morning. How wonderful are the scriptures? They are a powerful influence in my life. Today I read in
1 Nephi 17, Nephi was commanded to build a boat, something he had no experience or knowledge of how to do it, yet he didn't whine or decline to command...he went forth with faith in the Lord. How often in my life am I asked to do hard things,methinks that maybe I feel inadequate doing? There are many times.moften I get a calling and I wonder to myself How does the Lord think Incan do this? I want to decline or whine about it. Several years ago I was called to be the Stake Primary president, I couldn't believe that the Lord wanted me to do this,most of all the more qualified women in the stake. I remember going to the scriptures when pondering counsellors to be called to serve with me and I was directed to 1 Nephi 17-18 I soon came to realize that if the Lord could direct Nephi to build a boat (and not like the manner of that time but what the Lord designed, then He could help me build a Primary Presidency. So I completely trusted the Lord. He came through for me as he did for Nephi. He called great women of faith and knowledge to serve with me. Together with the Lords help we built something wonderful. We were more hands on than any stake primary I have ever been privy to. We visited every week one of the wards,Mae helped and served beside our sweet sisters. We held workshops that built confidence and strength. I feel the sisters felt loved and supported during my 3 1/2 years. During that time a Spanish branch was formed and I went every Sunday to play the piano for them and help them get up and running. I felt through my service during this time that I truly had found the promised land. It was way out of my comfort zone, something I would never believe I could do, but through these chapters in the Book of Mormon I knew the Lord would help and bless me. As I read these chapters again today I am reaffirmed in my convictions and trust in the Lord. It is a great day and I feel loved.

Jordan uses the side of the pool to get around and is doing quite well! Heaven forbid though don't splash even a drop of water on him because he throws the biggest fit and screams like you are killing him! So pretty much you can't have fun with any of the kids because they all throw a fit if you even suggest having fun or doing what the other kids are doing! So we just leave them alone - sure would be fun to play with them though! Maybe someday when we are too old! LOL
