Day three

Charlotte's Web was such an enjoyable movie and I recommend you see it if you haven't already. I even got a bit teary in parts of it. It was really a sweet movie, well done. I want to watch it with kids.

For lunch today, I took my sister Tracy's advice to check out Chipotle, which I never had. She told me exactly what to order, a burrito bowl, with pintos, chicken, medium and corn salsa, with sour cream and cheese. I followed her advice, but also added the pico de gallo and lettuce. Plus I got some chips and guacamole, as she advised. It was tasty and I'll definitely be heading back there again. Although I have half of it left and could eat it tomorrow too.

Robin came over today and was here for several hours and we talked and talked and talked. It was a really enjoyable visit and she's a sweet person, and I'm glad to have met her through card camp. Her mom is in our ward.

Stephanie just stopped by to get her supplies to help with Thursday's card camp and she'll drop it off in the morning. It's so nice to have helpers! So now that it's nearly 11 pm, I guess I'll head up for my nightly movie viewing. I called Kelly and Lindsey's cell phones today, but neither returned the call. I think they went to Elitch's in Denver today, so that will be an all-day ordeal. Plus Lindsey is going to girls camp in Colorado tomorrow. My sister-in-law is the Stake Camp Director, and called her sister, Brenda, to be her assistant. So Lindsey will be in good hands as a visiting youth camp leader, and will have the opportunity to lead her cousin, Kasey, as a first year. Both girls are really excited. Kasey, who will turn twelve in August, towers over Lindsey in height. They're the best of cousins. Apparently the theme for their camp this year has something to do with cars, so the young women are also having a Pinewood Derby, and I'm sure one most important element will be the style and bling factor of this competition. I can just see all the pink sparkly cars racing down the track. Lindsey was planning to work on her car today with help from Grandpa and her dad.

I haven't gotten much done yet that I was hoping to. I'll have to make tomorrow really count. I've spoken to Tracy, Valerie, and Julie (my sissies) a couple of times, so that's been fun. Good night!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
