June 5-12 First week of Summer!

We finally have warm weather.  Austin, Benson, Jenna, Jackson and I missed our 'big boys' and dad all week.  They went to Wyoming to reenact a handcart trek.  They all had a great experience remembering the faith and strength of our ancestors.  Rustin's great... grandmother was with the Martin handcart company.  My Great...Grandfather was one of the rescuers.

Rustin and I had our 16th anniversary.  Time flies!

While Rustin was gone I had a nerve pinched somewhere in my right arm that made my hand swell up and it felt like it was on fire.  Nothing helped--not pain medication, cold or heat. My mom and sister were gone so I had two miserable days by myself.  Thankfully my dad was home and he and all four missionaries from the basement gave me a blessing.  It was a great experience.  I had an  MRI on Friday and it looks like my neck is fine so for now I am hoping that a course of steroids will fix the problem.  My 1st finger is numb/rubbery and my arm is a little sore but nothing terrible.

Everyone is healthy and happy.  We are adjusting to the summer schedule pretty well--I haven't locked anyone in their room yet!  Next week looks like it will be great.

I wish I could have been there to help, you poor, sleep deprived mother.
