IF YOU ARE STILL IN THE PROCESS OF RAISING CHILDREN, BE AWARE. THE TINY FINGERPRINTS THAT SHOW UP ON ALMOST EVERY NEWLY CLEANED SURFACE, THE TOYS SCATTERED AROUND THE HOUSE, THE PILES AND PILES OF LAUNDRY LYING AROUND TO BE TACKLED, WILL DISAPPEAR ALL TOO SOON. AND, YOU WILL, TO YOUR SURPRISE, MISS THEM PROFOUNDLY. THOMAS S. MONSON

Hey, hey, hey, goodbye!

Kristy's departure on AI last night was bitter sweet. Bitter because now, I can't run to get popcorn during her performances, and sweet, because, well... I won't be too harsh. Brooke White really needs to pull out a "Let it be" performance next week, otherwise, I worry.

Enough American Idol. In Michigan we are so lucky to have all four seasons. After the long winter months, it makes spring that much more wonderful. It is 71 degrees today. I couldn't bare the thought of spending one more hour in the sandbox! So when a friend from the ward called this morning and wanted to play, we were so HAPPY. We had a picnic lunch at the Imagination Station (this incredible wooden play structure in downtown Brighton). Courtney has been in our ward for a few months. They are building a house really close to us, and they have the cutest little boy Brandon, that is Nora's age. We are close to playing matchmaker, but after he goes on a mission of course. When we were done playing, we went to feed the ducks, which is always an adventure. They can be mean. Notice Noras pigtails. They keep getting straighter, and longer. That eventually have to grown down... right? She has an appointment to see Dr. Madison today, so we will ask her about Pipi's hair.. I mean, Noras.
