Dave brought home a surprise for Corban today. Corban LOVED it! We couldn't get him in the house. He happily put on the helmet and pads. He did pretty well too- Not bad for a 2 1/2 year old.
Now he can play without the older kids getting after him- usually he grabs the boys scooters as soon as they set them down.

I keep this picture on my dresser. Arlene and Beth Paul.
I can't help but see my little Isabelle in Arlene. Their sweet faces. What a great gift from God for us to look like relatives, ever reminding us of family.
Arlene- What an example to her family. She was strong, resilient, hardworking, and loved her family! What a great gift to us- her grandchildren-
She made such an impact on her children that they passed the love for her down to us. We all have memories of Grandma though the memories of our parents and relatives.
I sure anticipate our family reunion after this life! I have so many questions for her!
Family is so important- more important than anything in this life. I just love my family so much. I ramble on about this more often than I should. . . How God loves everyone so much and how we are all connected. We all struggle on this earth and if we could see that, see others like we see ourselves, with similar problems and internal struggles. We would be nice, helpful, loving, supportive- regardless of who it is. We would finally take some of the focus off ourselves. "Self-Esteem Issues" would disappear off the face of the earth! Imagine the possibilities.

They are so good, "easy reads" and so much fun. and romantic for the sap in all of us.
I will admit that deep down I just love sappy romantic love sometimes!
I need more. I called and she graciously sent New Moon. I can't wait to read it. My friend that sometimes watches my kids LOVES them too we are just obsessing a bit over Edward. He is so loving.Anyway. they are suspenseful books. Just go get a copy. . . if you can. I was #144 in line at my library for New Moon! (a mormon lady wrote them so they are clean) I feel silly but can't help myself! :)
