In Search of Cooler Weather . . .

I am headed out in the morning to Utah for conference.

We haven't been for a few years so I am really excited to go. Besides being able to attend a session, we also will get to spend time with our two BYU daughters! I am super excited about that. I have missed them both terribly.

And I am hoping the weather will be at least a few degrees cooler than what we are experiencing in Arizona. I keep reading posts about how everyone is loving their fall weather, and if coveting weren't a sin, I would be filled to the brim with it.

I got to substitute in seminary last week. It was so much fun! I subbed a freshman class and they were all so sweet and excited about everything. I think it would have made me want to teach again if I hadn't felt so tired the rest of the day! That sure brought back memories!! I have felt so much better these past few months. I actually have energy after 2:00! It is hard to believe I lived for 12 years being that sleep deprived.

Yesterday my husband's brother and his son were in town visiting from Hawaii. They are here for a BYU-H soccer game and came over for dinner and swimming (yes it is still hot enough to swim here).

Michelle also had some friends from school over to work on an English project, and they came into the family room to discuss their project with me.

It was so much fun. I love having my house filled with people and lively conversation. It just warms my heart!

I really was not meant to live in a quiet house. Dear Mothers of young children. . . Enjoy them. All too soon they are gone.

I hear ya! That silence can be pretty deafening at times. (Though I am finally getting to the point where I also enjoy it sometimes...)

"Cool" is in the eye of the beholder. We're in the upper 80's/low 90's until Monday. Probably cool for you, but I can't wait for the rain and 60's promised later next week! Have a most fabulous visit.

Thanks for the reminder to enjoy the children at home. I reminded Greg of that last night as we were clearing our seniors' school stuff off the couch so we could both have a seat. He promised me there are some things he won't miss!

Yay! I love conference. I have never been, except for in my front room. Maybe when my kids get a little older it would be a worthwhile trip. Be safe!!

Have a great time at conference and enjoying your family! It's got to be better weather than here. I'd love to see a picture of you enjoying fall.

Have a wonderful weekend with your girls at Conference. My BYU-I boy is travelling to Provo to hang with my BYU Provo boy and they are hitting up a couple of sessions!

I'm with you on the hot weather. We've been in the high 80's, low 90's and I'm sick, sick, sick of it!

Have a great weekend!

Hope you're enjoying your UTAH visit. Always such a wonderful weekend to come to Utah. And the weather is even supposed to cooperate.

I anticipate that when you return from Conference weekend; you will have much to share.
I always say Enjoy the moments!
Really enjoy the moments of raising children and also enjoy the moments with just your husband and you.
I actually find that I am almost more busy than I was raising children. Of course, at this age you get to decide what to be busy with.
Anyway, loved your thoughts and blessings to you! LeAnn
