Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes...
Jaxon was fearless when sledding, it was so much fun watching him get down the little hills. Then as he got more tired, he started to just roll down them like you do on a summer day. He was just all over that snow! It was adorable. Dallin enjoyed the sledding and sliding, and Janae and AJ were so helpful. Only thing missing? Emily went to play at a park with friends from school, and Jason was out working. They both would have enjoyed playing in the snow with the family. It has been so darn cold, I've often commented that it might as well snow. And people would say," No, no, you don't want that." I'm like "Oh yeah I do". So, I wonder what I've gotten myself into? I don't think I can drive my car out of my driveway. I think I'm stuck at home or taking buses and trains for a while. So, wish me luck! We'll see what London's like in the snow.
When Agent 007 is out on official business, the kids are homesick, and the weather outlook is something like this... it can be easy to feel down. I also think our thoughts sometimes are turned to "when we go home we will...:" Instead of "while we are here we SHOULD!" So, in an effort to stomp out some of the winter blues, if you will, I'm going to come onto this post and update it with one thing that I've done, I've enjoyed, I like better here, I've learned, etc. Something positive every day. Because I don't want to miss the boat.
There was a great talk by Dieter F. Uchtdorf last October titled,
Of Regrets and Resolutions. Here are a few lines that stuck out
Doesn’t it seem foolish to spoil sweet and joyful experiences because we are
So that's what I'm going to do!
