Lily and Jake have been quite the little buddies lately. They went through a phase where they were fighting all the time so I'm pretty happy about this. Here they are demonstrating a little teamwork.
This is what happens when the weather warms up and you get to play outside and spend the time digging in the dirt and chasing your big sister around trying to dump it on her. It can get really exhausting.
Living out in the middle of nowhere has it's benefits. Since there is nothing to go out and do, we are always trying to be creative at home. Here is Lily experimenting with colors. This fizzing color science kit was $2 and totally worth it. Her favorite color to make is pink.
Ever since we moved here I have been thinking a lot about my grandma Crosby. I think it's because there are so many things about this place that remind me of Kanab.(where she lived) One thing about my grandma is that she always signed her letters with ATRNTF. (Always To Remember Never To Forget) I have always loved this saying because of that. I thought it would be really neat one day to have a licence plate with those letters on it but once we moved here and were needing a new plate I decided that it would be better to not spend so much money on a licence plate. I had Jacob go to the DMV on his day off and take care of getting the new plate. A few weeks later I got a small package in the mail. I was so confused because I could sort of tell it was a licence plate but we had already gotten a new one just a few weeks earlier. I opened it up and literally got all teary eyed at what I saw. My dear sweet husband had heard me mention somewhere along the way about the licence plate I wanted and he got it for me. Now I feel like I can have part of my grandma with me everywhere I go. He had to add an A in the middle because they don't allow only 6 letters on a plate but it still works for me. Thanks Jacob. I LOVE it!
