cost more than this?

Recently one of my sons friends (and I say sons *plural* because he is a friend to all of my sons) was diagnosed with cancer. He's not only a friend, but someone we consider like family. He spends a lot of time at our house & my kids spend a lot of time with him & his family. His grandma lives next door to our grandma. He also went on tour this summer with my kids & has paid his dues (sharpie face paint, smelly socks, stage diving, LGP, the whole bit).... He is a great kid, someone I don't mind my kids spending time with. It just seems like too much for someone his age (and my kids age) to have to deal with. We are thankful that his prognosis is really good & continue to pray for his quick recovery. I am thankful that we know the power of prayer & no matter what happens in life we know that there is more to God's plan than this.
What is that old saying? God won't give us more trials than we can handle? Not sure that's the saying but it's something along that line.... I'm sure this trial will make us all stronger. We love you Bryce! We're praying for your quick recovery.
You'd never know that I started this post with the title "Bloggers Block" - you know like writer's block?... sorry I haven't posted in a while, even though we have been extremely busy I just haven't had time to share. I'll try & post some pictures soon & write something a little lighter or more uplifting next time!

bldg. Since I have never been in a seminary class, I thought that I should at least see how one is run. I will probably only have to teach 7 times in the school year. That still horrifies me. (My kids have already said they're not going on the days I teach. I really hope they don't mean it)
There are a few callings I said I would never want. Nursery, gospel doctrine, and seminary teacher. I said yes to this because I know that's what we're supposed to do, but the other two are completely OUT of the question. You know that game "Would you Rather"? Let's just leave it at that:)
I got some great ideas from Shari today. I am pretty confident I can fill about 20 minutes of time as I study the lessons. What the heck am I going to do with the other 30 minutes? Maybe take little carpets and a magic wand and let them have nap time like I remember having in Kindergarten. Food always works. Oh no, I'm in soooooooooo much trouble!

As tradition goes, I always take pictures on their first day of school. I knew these two would give me a hard time. I bribed, pleaded, and nothing worked. I think they had fun with the chase. Every time the camera would light up right before it took the picture, they would make funny faces. I caught a few pictures of them at their car. Jason's already called me and asked me to come change his classes. They gave him periods 3-7! Since Troy can't call me, I don't know how his schedule is. I guess I'll just have to wait until after school to find out. Wah. (Just for your reading enjoyment, babe.)
After the boys left, I got reacquainted with my old friend, Tread Milton. Poor TM sits in the corner collecting dust. He makes a lot of noise, so I can't use him when the kids sleep in till noon during the summer. Who wants to work out at noon, even with a/c?!! TM leaves me notes sometimes and says he misses me. He hasn't left me a note in awhile. Maybe he wanted me to enjoy my summer without him:) TM and I had a good time together today. I hope I am motivated to play with him most days, and that today wasn't a fluke!!!!!
This is Tread Milton.
