What do you do on your Son's last day to play?

Nothing feels like freedom of riding a four-wheeler and driving fast and getting dirty!  Jarom really enjoys the four-wheelers so off to the desert we went. Thanks to Uncle James for lending us his so Jarom didn't have to share with Kayla who by the way absolutely loved being by herself.  Jay loves the desert so we headed off to Sugar Loaf, the old Volcano.

Along the way we stopped to see the Indian Writings and seriously I'm quite impressed with my cell phone camera! Yep all these pictures were taken with my phone because it was just too dusty for my real camera.

I've decided I will never be thin so I might as well start adding some pictures of me and my wonderful hubby.  I love going on outings with him, especially when it involves holding onto him when he's driving the four-wheeler!

At the top of Sugar of Sugar Loaf a long time ago before the depression, some guy was building a windmill for electricity, but took the money and ran when the economy fell apart. There are only some pillars left, kinda reminded me something from an Alien movie.

Oh the joy! Nothing like a

 dirty face and a fast ride!!!  
  Best part of it all was watching Jarom riding wild and free with his headphones on and music cranked.
Oh how he will miss his music, but what a  fun day!

Friend and Family Support!

Jarom's Farewell will be one remembered by his friends as 'the funnest farewell I've ever been to!'
The support shown to Jarom from family and friends just warmed our hearts. A big thanks to all who came and especially to the ones who worked so hard to help feed us all!

My family is growing up so very quickly.....I never thought I would become the shortest, but I'm thinking that's going to happen!
Having a Son like Jarom is such a blessing. He seems to have been a Mama's boy since his first breath, and he still is! (at least that's what I choose to believe;)  I know he will be an amazing Missionary and I am so proud of his decision to serve.  I will try and be unselfish enough to share him for 2 years....or as we like to look at it - just 24 fast Sundays!  Sending a child off and out of reach for 18 months or 2 years, brings about feelings that are just too hard to explain.  I cry alot the last week before they leave, and have my moments throughout, but am so thankful to my Heavenly Father for helping me while they are gone.  I know He helps keep me distracted with life, and most of the time even makes the time move along quickly.  But no matter what it's a long time not to hug your child.
