Elmer Update

Only a week and a half left of school left, and we can't wait to have Porter home with us every day!!! I think he will be excited to get to sleep in and spend all day playing with his brother and sister.

Maya finished soccer camp and LOVED it. I never would have guessed she'd like it so much. She has also been quite the little helper around here. I don't know what I'll do next year when she is in kindergarten.

This guy has been trouble as usual. He is now climbing out of his crib which brings on a whole hoard of headachs! He's talking up a storm and loves being the center of attention. He adores his Aunt Sarah (everyone always says he should have been a Harward).

We've been keeping up with our compost pile. Mostly filling it with watermellon rines.

And our most exciting news...We've added to our family (temporarly, we can't take her to Boston with us) Fraidy cat Elmer has been a great pet for the kids. She is super patient and very friendly. All the kids are smitten with her and are hopeing Nana and Grampy will take her when we leave so we can still visit her.
I was looking all over for the cat before bed one night, and couldn't find her anywhere. I finally found her curled up snoozing with Porter. I asked him the next day if he knew she had slept with him and he said "yes but that cat was driving me crazy". She's not a good bed buddy!

Happy Mothers Day????

I guess you can say I decided to give my mom a big laugh for mothers day, so I became a BLOND! I really didn't want to post these pictures, but this ones for you mom...

The Bishop and Brother Call were busting a gut laughing up on the stand today and I just had this feeling they were laughing at me, and come to find out they were!!!

I've become one of those people who it's just hard to look away from:) I'm making myself give it a few days to get use to, but I will probably go get some more dark put back in.
Some of the comments from church
-We thought you did it so Bennett wouldn't feel left out.
-Sister Hernandez got a new dress for Mothers Day and Sister Elmer got a new head of hair
-I love it, it makes you sparkel (bless you Sister Seymore)
-Amanda, your hair!
-You must be new in the ward
-I kept trying to figure out who Casey had his arm around
