April 2015 brought lots of fun and lotsa changes for our family.
First of all, Elder Argyle has a new companion, Elder Tarawhiti. WE have been praying for him as he has been going through some bumps and bruises that might also be called "character builders".
I cracked up at this. I guess it is important to know how to spell, "annual".
We got a big group together and went to Six Flags. It was so fun!
My favorite quote from General Conference, the talk is here.
We had a sad thing happen in our town and the PTO gave this flower arrangement to the family. It made me want to grab the ones that I love the most and hold them close and remind them daily how much I love them.
We sent a little love to Elder Argyle. I hosted a fun Prosper Missionary Moms luncheon at my house and then we put together some care packages for our missionaries. I hope to host another one soon. We have ALOT of missionaries from Prosper - I think there are 12 total. So fun. Truly, the work is hastening.
Still going strong on BOM365.
McKinley and Reagan went to go visit a friend in the hospital. She had an emergency appendectomy. I wish I looked that pretty when I was straight out of surgery. Such a cute girl.
Read this book, among others. Loved it.
Had to get a gift for a birthday party that Brady was invited to and I shamefullly admit that I got this.
But I drew the line at this. Eewwww.
My little Reagan stayed home from school one day with a sore throat and fever so I took her this bad boy.
I can't believe he has been out for almost 9 months already. This is my screensaver on my phone. I still miss him every single day.
Been trying to use my fitbit more. I would say I did pretty well on this particular day, 17,000 +++ steps Although, Brutus was worn out.
Reagan had fun performing at the Talonettes Spring Show with the rest of her cheer leading squad. Here she is with two of her close friends, Emily and Cristina.
In other news, Brent started a new job TODAY. He is so excited about this new opportunity. When he was ill all those years he had to take a step back on the career ladder. Now that we celebrate three years without a headache this very month - he is ready to jump back in with both feet and he feels like this new job puts him back on the trajectory he was on before he got sick. We are so grateful for all the feelings of peace that we have experienced as we have been praying for a new opportunity. Heavenly Father has been guiding us each step of the way. I am especially grateful that Brent will be working from home for the most part which makes it nice for us. His church responsibilities take him away from us but this will help compensate for that.
Jensen leaves for study abroad TOMORROW. I was seriously stressed when we realized that Brent was going to be out of town and I would be needing to get kids up and running and off to school at about the same time she would need to be leaving for the airport, but a good friend stepped up and offered to take her. She is almost beside herself with excitement. This is something she has been looking forward to for so long. I hope to be able to post lots of pictures of her while she is there.
I don't know what has me more shocked. How much I love school? How much I am learning? I really love the class I am finishing up this week on treating people with substance abuse disorders. I start a counselor's ethics class next. In 8 more weeks I will be done with my first semester. I got released from Primary and am really enjoying the chance to go to Gospel Doctrine and get my own cup filled. I miss the kids but grab hugs from them when they are in the hall. One perk is that I am finally able to meet some of the people that have moved into my ward in the last year.
That was our April.
How was yours?
