My Garden

We planted a potted garden this year. Right now I have, 2 green peppers, 2 Red peppers, 2 zucchini, 2 tomato, 2 cucumber, rosemary, basil, thyme, chives, oregano, cilantro, 2 lavender, and a Shasta Daisy plant. It has made me feel a little more independent from the grocery store and more like a pioneer. Although, I am really glad that I can just buy meat from the store!

Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all of the Fathers/Future Fathers out there. Aeden and I were able to make a trip out to Colorado to visit my brother Zach and Kristy and there 5 children, Kaylee, Tia, Ethan, Owen and Jed. We had a blast, all of them wanted to see and hold Aeden. Aeden felt like he was in Heaven. We were able to have my sister Sierra and her two boys, Eli and Wes, along with my mom and my little brother, Jed. Then my Dad flew in for the weekend, so almost all of my family together again. We missed Ben and Art immensely. It was a great trip.
I wanted to write a little about my dad. He has been such a wonderful father and has always worked so hard. He has a Great Harvest in Folsom, California where he spends night and day working, while so many people just love him and his bread. Growing up, he was the nicest ever, always taking us to do fun things, hiking, hawaii, Disneyland. He has always been really buff and I have always felt super safe with him. Dad, you have been so wonderful. Thank you for your example, your love for mother, your love for the scriptures, your testimony, always serving others and your love for us children and grandchildren. I hope you had a wonderful day. I love you.

Swim Lessons

June is finally here. Warm weather, Sun shine, happy people, it's time to come out of our winter cave and start partying. And to do that, we started with a great week of SWIMMING lessons. Yes, finally, last week I started back up with teaching swim lessons. It has been wonderful to have a pool this year. My wonderful friend has an out-door, heated pool that she doesn't mind me using, with a small fee, so I have a pool to teach my students.
My new little company is called "STRONGSWIM." Any other suggestions, I will take them. I had eighteen students!, and It was a blast. Since I have 6 more sessions, I look forward to being in the water. There will be lots and teaching. No stopping until every child in Michigan can swim and enjoy the fun activities the summer has to offer.
