Reflections about life, my incredibly sweet husband, my talented and beautiful daughters, the ups and downs of homeschooling, and my love for My Savior.

I haven't blogged in... like... forever. And I apologize. It has been a bit crazy in Kentucky. We have had an exciting couple of weeks.
Kotten Kandy and Key Lime Pie made the cutest sewing projects. It includes pockets for scissors, needles and thread. And has a detachable pin cushion. Key Lime Pie's is an adorable, yellow, sewing pattern, while Kotten Kandy chose to make hers using a owl motif (because she LOVES owls).
Thanks to a wonderful woman in our ward (my visiting teacher, Mary), we were able to pick TONS of apples (for free). We have been drying them and making pies. Amy taught the girls how to make the pies... and, boy, were they YUMMY!
K2 and I also got creative on Sunday. We mod-podged a cute mosaic. Kotten Kandy chose to write the word "IMAGINE" on her art, while Key Lime Pie wanted to personalize hers! They turned out awesome!
In other news, Seminary started last week. Key Lime Pie is old enough to attend. Early morning seminary starts at 6:50 A.M. and is located only 1.1 miles from our home. So K2 and I walk every morning. :-) Kotten Kandy is auditing the class since she is too young to officially participate. But the seminary teachers recognized her spiritual maturity and are allowing her to sit in on the classes. Both girls LOVE seminary. This morning, as we walked home, the excitedly told me about what they had learned. Both of them expressed how much they loved starting the day with seminary! I'm kinda a proud mommy!
Finally, a couple of funny stories:
K2 were discussing going on missions the other day. I didn't realize that they wanted to go on missions until I listened in on their conversations. Key Lime Pie told her sister that she wanted to be "called to Rivendale or Mordor" so she could teach "Sauron." Kotten Kandy told her she would rather teach the hobbits in the Shire. I tried to explain to them that they were fictional places.... :-) They just laughed!
Apparently they were discussing the Plan of Salvation in Seminary last Friday. Sister Fielding told them that at the judgement day they would "be sorted." Kotten Kandy exclaimed, "I'm going to be sorted into Gryffindor!" Key Lime Pie added that she was part of the Hufflepuff house. I really have crazy children! They keep me laughing!
