We have had cold moments, but it feels so much like Spring! We took a trip down to San Antonio today, our monthy trip. We were able to attend the temple and to take the children to the zoo afterwards. Since we go down so often we have a pass to the zoo and have loved every minute. I think we are really learning the different kinds of animals. Today we were looking at the lions and suddenly one started roaring, the children thought it was amazing and kept talking about it for the rest of the day. What fun it is to spend time together!
We received a call from Rebecca's nursery teacher Sunday morning and she wanted a digital picture of Clark and Rebecca together for a lesson on Fathers. We searched and found that Clark takes most of the pictures so we hurried and took this sweet picture. Rebecca has always had a special relationship with Clark. The first of the morning she will say, "Where's daddy." (Clark is usually at school already) Her happiness is always complete when she is with her father. As I was falling asleep last night I was thinking of the great blessing it is to have such wonderful children. David is always doing little sweet things for each of us. Rebecca has such a concern for other's feelings and will be there hugging, kissing, and loving someone who is sad.
I changed things around in the children's rooms and made room for Rebecca to sleep in David's room since her room will eventually be our new baby's room. When I was putting the children to bed last night, David really wanted to have Rebecca in his room so he wouldn't be all alone, but Rebecca didn't feel quite ready to give up the crib. David started crying feeling lonely already, and Rebecca saw his tears. I told her that David really wanted her to sleep in his room, and she said, "okay." They slept too! What sweet children, with such tender feeling. Children really are a gift from our Heavenly Father. What great treasures they are.
Preschool was cancelled this week due to the flu, so we decided to have some fun and go to the Texas Jumping Beans. David and Rebecca had lots of fun. I was surprised that Rebecca was able to do almost everything by herself, climbing the big latters and sliding down. It was nice for us to get out since we haven't been playing outside too much this week.
