I Believe in Soul mates! Happy Birthday My Love!

I believe in Soul mates. Actually, I can't speak for anyone else. I just know that I found my soul mate. Today Leif is 30 years old. We have spent the day together. For the most part we just went about our day, business as usual. But we added flare to the day by eating a lot of yummy food. But my favorite part of the day (besides the time I was with him) were the moments I took to think about why I love Leif.

There is no way that I will ever be able to truly explain my feeling for Leif. But I can give a few ideas of why I love him. I will just give some examples that stem from the events of today:

I love Leif because he woke up this morning and ran outside first thing to take the garbage can out to the curb. Then he came back in and had personal scripture along side me.

I love Leif because he nurses his sick chickens as if they were his own children.

I love Leif because he helps me hold down a squirming baby while I change a stinky diaper. And if I'm not available, he would change the diaper as needed.

I love Leif because he is willing to do hard things just because he knows that it will make me happy.

I love Leif because he will drop anything to help me if I need it. He is especially good at helping me prepare meals.

I love Leif because he enjoys being with me. He doesn't even blink an eye when I ask him to go grocery shopping with me.

I love Leif because he has taught my little boy that ladies are served first at every meal. He is the perfect example of how a gentlemen should treat a lady.

I love Leif because he will sit and read out loud to me chapter after chapter as I go about the daily tasks of life or just sit next to him while he reads.
I love Leif because he is the only person who can make me laugh to the point of giving me hic-ups.

I love Leif because he is the ideal father.

I love Leif because he is the perfect husband for me.

Happy birthday My Love!

Summer English Has Begun

Written May 31st: This past week I had to do some planning. I've been celebrating that Leif's school is out. But that's not entirely true. His Day Job is over. But that doesn't mean that school is over. Leif and I are both taking Summer Courses online this summer. Classes start tomorrow. Leif just finished a really fun class called "Foods of the US." That was so fun! One of his text books was a great cookbook and the class compiled a fun collection of recipes by the end of class. I love when you can walk away from a class and feel like it made a difference. This next round of classes Leif will have one English class and I will have two English classes. It will keep us on our toes!

When Leif and I both have classes, in order to meet every one's needs and keep things afloat organization is a requirement. So, this is what I have come up with for our Summer Routine.... June 2nd: Just Kidding! I was going to copy and Paste the schedule that I made up onto this post. But some how it didn't get saved on to my computer. Luckily I printed it off. It basically keeps us all in order and reminds us to pray, read our scriptures, have family time, do our homework, get up in the morning, eat, and go to bed at night. Not too crazy.

So far things are going alright. But that's not saying too much, Leif's parents have had Jakob with them all day. So I was able to do school work all day. So I'll keep you posted on the realities of our world as it evolves.
