Weight Lifted

I realize you all know that I was released from Primary a few weeks ago. 

Last week I was busy attending a lovely open house for Chris, and missed the true feeling of being Primary-free.

But today, I experienced the whole thing.

And it was lovely.

I sang the closing hymn in sacrament meeting,

I read scripture and enjoyed a great Sunday School Lesson,

I was told to put away my phone in Relief Society,

And I was GIVEN a treat instead of GIVING OUT treats!


I'll be honest, primary was getting too tough for me the last few months.  And although I didn't ask to be released I know that it was obvious I was needing it.  The craziness, the meanness, the unthoughtfulness of some of the people in primary really brought me down.

But I can tell you today, I'm on the up swing!  My bucket is being filled, instead of drained.

I think this blog will benefit more from this change too ---

What Work Looks Like

This is how the Vincent Family works in the yard:

Josh Working?

Ethan moaning over having to work

Josh NOT working

Ethan wishing he were dead

Taking a food break from all the hard work?

Taking a Water Break?

Here's how the project ended up -- definitely a long way from finished.

Music to My Ears

This blog has turned into a life update,

Instead of my Views about things.

Today it's safer to avoid my views -- cuz I'd rant and rave about cooperation, teamwork and charity.

So let's just update you on my life and say that I'm in love,

With Ethan's new instrument of choice!!

Such a beautiful sound!

Fire - Works

Twelve Year Old Man Has Discovered Fire

A twelve year old man encountered the effects of fire this weekend and burned his thumb.  After purchasing a multitude of fireworks, with his own money, he proceeded to light them.  Following the lighting of the fire bombs, the twelve year old man threw them in the air - narrowly missing the car parked BEHIND him!  During the process of lighting and throwing, a thumb was charred and blistered. 

Somewhere, nearby, a mother was a FREAKING out!

I think I made the world's fastest trip to Flagstaff this week.

It was a down and back kinda thing.

But Oh, So worth it!

Here's what I saw:

Fast Trip
Good Stuff!
