The end of last month we got rain when it was very, very cold and so for two days we had ice everywhere. In San Antonio ice means the city pretty much shuts down.
The kids were off school for two days (which has led to a big fight on Facebook by some very entitled parents over when those days will be made up).
We lost several branches from the tree in our front yard. It looked pretty pathetic until the ice melted. We’ll have a lot more sun shining on our yard this summer though!
The other day Jamie was in the kitchen and glanced out our back door and said there was a fox on our deck. By the time we got outside the fox was trying to find a break in the fence so it could get out, but sure enough, there was a beautiful fox visiting our backyard!
When I was a kid I thought the Graphic Novel section at the bookstore was for naughty books so I totally avoided that area. You know… graphic… ones. I’ve since learned that graphic novels are really just stories in comic book format.
I do a load of laundry every other day. My favorite laundry days are the ones where I manage to wash, dry, fold, and put away the whole load all in one day. They are my favorite because it means the next day I have no laundry to do at all!
Family size packaging always makes me laugh. We often need two family size just for a single meal. So when I saw this at SamsClub I was like finally a family size package that is sized for our giant family!
And one way you know we have a big family… we installed an automatic soap dispenser in our downstairs bathroom.
I made a simple rule for myself that ensures I always read my scriptures, every single day. I am not allowed to read any books until I have read a chapter/section in the scriptures. Since I quite enjoy reading books, this works great for me and I haven’t missed a day of reading in months. (I also have Read Scriptures as one of my daily to do’s and I really like crossing things off my list so that helps as well.)
For his birthday Adrian wanted to go see In the Heights. During it I realized Lin-Manuel Miranda is the John Green of musicals. Heart in a blender, man.
