Wall Sits

    Since September we have implemented alternate non-spanking disciplinary measures for the boys, including wall sits. (David has actually asked me if we can go back to spanking, he does not care for wall sits at all.) Ruth, on occasion, will even receive  a wall sit for some unacceptable behavior. Lincoln thinks it is a game though and decided to join in the 'fun'. Oh how I love you small one.

Daddy Daughter Dance

 This little belle went to the ball on Friday night with her dashing prince charming. Complete with glitter and fingernail polish she was all fancied up for her night out on the town. Zach took her to a butterfly kisses dance where she gorged on pretzels and giggled while being spun around in the air. Although Zach was a little fatigued at having to carry his partner for an hour he said it was well worth it. Perhaps a tradition in the making.

Sunday Guests

 This is our weekly Sunday visitor- Kylan Rice. He was one of Zach's students at BYU and serendipitiously  came out here to CSU to complete a masters in creative writing. It's like having one of Zach's nephews back in town. Basically Kylan is as close to family as you get without actually sharing any blood. The whole family loves him, especially little Mac. Last week he brought a special guest...

Lara. She's great. Perky is the first word I would use to describe her although she is also beautiful and smart. And strong! She and Kylan met in the English department here at CSU because Lara is also pursuing a masters at CSU. We'll keep you posted on the developments. (Mostly I just wanted to take a picture of her with both the bigger boys on her back at one time.)

The Eyes have It

 Zach's a new man- well at least his eyes are. A few weeks ago he had lasik performed by our Stake President/eye doctor and now he sees better than I do, 20/15 in 2015! This is the first time he has been without eye wear since elementary school. He was very pleased with the whole procedure and recovery time only took about 24 hours. It wasn't quite the biblical mud on the eyes, but pretty close.
