Here is the update on Sarah...
Last Thursday (April 15 th) the surgeon released her to return to her mission. She was hoping that she wouldn't leave until after Saturday (the 16 th) since that is when my other sister was taking out her endowments. She got her wish she was still here.
She was happy about that and then was ready to go. So she spent the rest of the week waiting for news of when her plane would leave. She came and spent the day with me on Tuesday. Then on Thursday she still didn't know when she was leaving so after spending a few hours with my mom at work she came to my house again. We watched Anne of Green Gables!!!! So fun I love that movie!! Finally Thursday night she got word that she was on the 10 am flight Friday morning. so a week after she was released to go back she was able to go.
We will all miss having her around but can wait for another 8 months to see her again We have done it already!
Good Luck Sarah we will Pray for you and those that you are teaching!!

Not sure which one of my boys got a hold of my camera,
but I love the surprise pictures.
Remington says it was Gage! There were about 10 of my fridge/stove!
I'm pretty sure one of these was a self portrait of Remington.

its a bird, its a plane, its...


For your information none of these were poosed. He put the swim goggles on all by himself!
Oh Gage what would my life be like without you?

Fishing trip.

Ryan took Coleton fishing the other day.
He took him up to the reservoir that is up by our house.
It is stocked with lots of trout and they are pretty easy to catch.
I mean really easy!!
We were up there for about 45 minutes and caught 2 fish.
Coleton had a blast!
When he caught his fish we asked him if he wanted to let it go he said
"NOPE I want to eat it its YUMMY"

here are the fisherman with the catch of the day!

Binkie Boy!

Oh yes this baby LOVES his binkies!!
I think that if he could fit more in his mouth he probably would!

Funny Kids

Remington had a friend over today and i had asked Remington to do a few things. He was distracted of course if you know Remington you know that is not a big surprise. Anyway Remington and the other boys were in their room and I was in my room putting clothes away when Remington says "Mother, I found my pen Mother." I say "Congratulations" then I hear Remington's friend say "That is what moms' say when they are stressed" I smiled and relaxed a little. I'm grateful for the little smile today!

Update on Sarah

Well the test results are back and they determined that Sarah's gallbladder is NOT functioning. This means she has to have it removed. However here is the good news.
She could be here as early as today!! I am so excited to see her! I am not so excited that she has to have surgery but at least she gets to be home to have it done!
I wonder if her gallbladder not functioning has anything to do with her missing spleen?
For those unaware some of my family have a heredity genetic blood disorder called Spherocytosis. Their red blood cells are shaped differently so their body kills off the healthy cells. The best prevention is to have the spleen removed. My 2 brothers and 1 sister all have this so did my Dad and he had to have his gallbladder removed also.
So there it is. We are waiting for the paper work and then she'll be heading home. She is not being released so she will have to have a companion while she is home so hopefully I'll get to help out!
