By the way, whenever the theme song comes on Lydia lights up and starts throwing her hands around for "Signing time with Alex and Leah."
I'll try and get a video of her tomorrow but here's a picture of her yesterday signing "water".
PS, here she is Saturday morning.
PS, Cooper thinks "stupid" is a bad word so don't tell him I said it.

We all run to safety. I get in first and turn around to capture a picture of everyone else running inside.Grammy and Catelyn are coming up the stairs under the umbrella.Catelyn is clutching the only smore made that night.Note Jon's soaked back.
PS. minutes after we got inside there was a huge "Crack" and a lightning bolt hit just outside where we had been standing under the trees.
What a crazy North Carolina adventure that Jon got to experience on his short trip out there.

He's growing into such a helpful and wonderful boy. I am so proud of him.

"No, what kind?"
I think to myself, when has he ever even heard Country music as I've never had it on the radio?
"Really? When did you hear country music?"
"You know, the country music I sing. 'My Country Tis of Thee', 'I'm proud to be an American', 'This is my Country', those ones."
"Ohhhhhh, you mean Patriotic music."

I cannot express how relieved I am to be back in California and close to family and friends. We all enjoyed our North Carolina adventure but the past 2 1/2 months have been rough and I was anxious to get back to California as soon as we were able.
The kids and I have moved in with my parents and have already been welcomed with open arms by the ward family and the neighborhood. Every day has been filled with friendly new faces, and in the 4 days we have been here we have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and friendship toward us.
Prior to moving, my dad and brother Jonathan came out to help us pack up my van and move everything across the country. Here's a picture of Uncle Jon w/ the girls. (I'll make a separate post on one of our adventures we had while Jon was there in a bit)
When we got to Grammy and Papa's house Uncle Jared and Aunt Mimi were visiting with Ben and Lucy.
Later, Uncle Josh came to visit as well. We were able to go swimming with all of them on Saturday. Again, I can't tell you how nice it is to have family close (and a fast internet).
Grammy and Papa's garden in the back yard is amazing and everyone has been out to pick from the bountiful harvest. The kids are actually turning into good eaters thanks to the excitement of eating a good dinner that they helped pick themselves. (It may look like Catelyn is picking flowers but there is actually a cherry tomato plant back in there.)
To sum things up, we are very glad to be back in California and are very grateful to everyone, most especially my parents, who have made it such a wonderful, joyful and pleasant experience.

You Are Snow White!
Pure and trusting. You are a gentle soul who can get along with just about anyone. Everyone you meet instantly falls in love with you. How can they resist? You have a pure, lovable nature that's irresistable. Just don't trust everyone who comes across your path.
Which Disney Princess Are You?
