- Our new church building was finished in January and we now have a 10 minute drive instead of 20. Doesn't sound that different, but it is SO different.
- The new year (and building) brought a new start time of 11am vs the old 1pm. SO much better.
- While Young Men's president is time consuming, Ross has fewer meetings than he had as Exec. Sec., and all in all, it seems we have SO much more time together as a family on Sundays.
- For all the complaining I do about our weather in the summer, I should be raving now. It is dreamy outside. 60's or 70's--- blue, sunny skies, snow capped mountains surrounding us. Really lovely.
So yesterday we soaked it up. We had a nachos-apples-blueberry picnic in the backyard, after which Ross catapulted the girls from under the trampoline for a while (holding Finn as you can see.... I was cleaning up). Then took a neighborhood walk... and finished it up with "watching a movie all together as a family!!" as Sophia begs for ALL the time.
I know there might come a day where they don't think squishing together as closely as possible under a blanket is the best thing in the whole wide world. But I don't plan on that happening any time soon.
