We always talk about these things..

We always talk about how things will be when we get to medical school, or when we buy our house, or when Andy will just graduate stinking college!

Well, enough with the talk already! This past weekend, we made the 5-6 hour drive to Las Vegas, sans Will, and Saturday, Andy took the MCAT! I can't believe he actually has taken it! This is the test which tells us if he can get into med school or if he should take it again and wait another year. (I am praying it's the former of the two) I have never been to Southern Utah/Las Vegas. I have to be honest, I was not impressed. It's all the same three colors, brown, red and tan. Yuck. Oh, with some tumble weed and joshua trees thrown in the mix. I could never live there. Yuck! I can't imagine sending my kids to play in the back yard and there is no grass, or trees, or water. It's a fun place to visit, but I sympathize for those who must live there. I think you end up there, you don't choose to live there. And if you do, I think you should go talk to someone. We made it to Vegas around 6 and went to Wally World to get some dinner. Our room had a kitchenette, which I am pretty sure was bigger then our old kitchen at the village. (Man, I don't miss living there!) Saturday was the big day. Andy had to leave about noon to take his 4 hour test! I stayed at the hotel and chilled by the pool until I was quite crispy on the edges. Bad idea! That night we went to eat at the Planet Hollywood Buffet and walked around the strip. It was fun, but Vegas is dirty. Most people there are dirty and I was glad to get home! It was a great trip with just the two of us though! Andy's mom watched Will for the weekend. He is now spoiled rotten and will not take a nap to save his life, or mine for that matter. He grew while we were gone. I am pretty sure he's an actual toddler now! What happened to my little baby!?

Now it's back to life, and work. And crying babies who will not sleep. But, boy, am I glad I am not one of those adults who got sucked into the playground they call Vegas!

Mother's Day

Yesterday was Mother's Day. It was fabulous! Will has been a sicky this weekend. I was woken up by him cuddling with me. He's not as big into cuddling as he was when he was little. I like to take it when I can get it. We have early Church, at 9 am. I am NOT a fan. haha. But because Will has been sick, we stayed home until Sacrament (we have it last in our ward). We didn't think it was the best idea to have him playing with the other kids. While Will was taking a catnap before Church, Andy made us some Rhodes cinnamon rolls. They were divine! We had a wonderful sacrament, with great talks on mothers. I am so grateful to be a mother. I am so grateful to have Will as a son. Each night we read a page out of his "My First New Testament" book. He loves it. I always say "Ok, where is Jesus?" and he points at Jesus in the picture. After wards, we say a prayer. I make it short and sweet, he doesn't have patience for much more then that. It's very humbling to realize the innocence of a child. I pray I am being a good mother to him. I pray that he not only hears me talk of the gospel, but sees me live it. Heavenly Father trusts me with his children. I could not ask for a greater responsibility. I pray that I am loving and nurturing in the ways which Will needs. I am excited to add more children to my role of motherhood, but for now, I am just enjoying Will. This is the only time I'll have one baby around, and I am just drinking it up. I could not have asked for a better, more laid back child. I could not have asked for a better husband. He always makes me want to do better. He works so hard for us. I am excited for Father's Day!

(p.s. I am also the new owner of The Remarkable Soul of a Woman by President Uchtdorf. Andy ordered it, (over a week ago) it's just not here yet. I can't wait to read it though!)
