I know, I know, I know...

I know you are tired of seeing "Tears at Scripture Time." (That is if you even still check my blog for updates - If you are seeing this, thanks for not giving up on me.) It has been a crazy couple of months and I seem to have a hard time finding time to sit at the computer. However, since this is my only form of journaling, I suppose I should at least attempt to catch up once in a while.

Life here is good. We are just finishing soccer season, HOORAY! I always love it when soccer starts and I love it even more when it ends. It has been a good year. All three boys played on different teams and it has been a really positive experience. Jeffrey played U12 and even though he is more academic than athletic, he had fun. Jackson had a fabulous coach (Jeff) and they had a lot of fun. Kevin's coack is Brazilian and calls his the White-Brazilian-Goalie.

Seminary is good, it still consumes a huge part of our lives but we love it. The youth of this generation are amazing, they face temptations that I can't even imagine.

I am doing pretty good. I have been struggling a lot lately with my depression. But I feel like Heavely Father is really trying to teach me something and I know that I need to be patient and learn to depend on Him more.

I am missing the fall like crazy now. I want to see fall leaves and put on jeans and a sweatshirt. Instead, I will put on some shorts, turn on the fan, pray for a breeze and pretend that GREEN isn't driving me insane!

Jeff and I were able to go to the "Hoedown For Hope", a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, a few weeks ago. It was so much fun. That boy is H-O-T in a cowboy hat!

I'll send you some orange leaves if you send me some ocean air...

I feel the same way about soccer. It is so great and so much fun to see my kids develop talents and exercise but I really breathe a sigh of relief when I don't have to run them to practices and games anymore!

And, you guys are cute!

if you need to talk, or scream or cry, I'm here for you. There is nothing worse than having an incredible life and everything around you being so great, when you feel so lost and terrible inside. I hope that you are finding something that helps you get through the day. Heavenly Father is teaching you, but he also doesn't want to see you hurt or suffer right now. I will be praying for you like crazy. Have you had a blessing yet? Even if you have, maybe another one wouldn't hurt. Take care of you and your sweet family. Let me know if you need anything. You are such an incredible person with a smile that could light up the world. I wish you knew that, felt that, and believed that. Just keep holding on sweet girl.

It is so great to get an update!! Really, it is nice to hear things are going as well as they are! Fall is so busy for everyone! I think it would be really wierd to have green all year round. Take advantage of it while you can! Remember the snow will come soon enough! That I know you won't miss too much!

Love you tons! I think of you often! Keep up your awesome spiritual deposits! You will be blessed!

Peggy is right! You guys are cute!!

Yeah....a post!!!

You crack me up....Green driving me insane! I love green, but have never lived in a year-round green place. I can't even imagine. The change of seasons gives me the perspective I need to appreciate the world around me. Thankful for that perspective. Fall is my fav time. Sorry you aren't getting to enjoy it. Tell Jeff you need to come to NM for a bit. That would work, right?

Did Jeff wear boots to go with that hat? :)

Primary program this weekend, and our Primary is so small that we can't fill all the seats. We need your boys.

Still missing you....

Hey Dawn, I have been meaning to get you a huge thank you card for the awesome hats and outfit for my boys so long ago. I love them and so do they. It was so kind and thoughtful of you and I think you are amazing. I hope that you are doing great. Have a Happy Halloween.

Still reading.
Love you like crazy.
Miss you.

It's not cold enough here this fall either.
We've gotta do something about that!

Maybe it's the hat because I know someone else who looks really hot in that hat.
