HELP US!! YW Girls Camp Question! -Pranks-

Hey ladies, I NEED your thoughts ASAP!!! Please send this out to anyone you know that might have a few good thoughts!

We have a very small ward (about a dozen girls or less.) and it is vital that we get our group unified. We have camp next week and it has come to our attention that some of the girls have created a club and they are hoping to carry out a serious amount of pranks. I would love to believe that these are all cutsie pranks. We're not thinking this is the case.

We have decided to eliminate pranks altogether and encourage acts of service. But I am wondering how you have overcome this obstacle?

Please let me know. I will be teaching a lesson about unity and knitting our hearts together as one, tomorrow. But I would love your insight!!!

Smiling Again!

Today was the first good day I have had in about one week. I had the energy that I needed to really take time on my house. I was also in a good frame of mind 95% of the day. This was a huge relief and a great blessing! Another great thing is that Caleb FINALLY got tubes put in his ears. We figure he's had at least a dozen ear infections in the 14 months he's been alive. So we're hoping we're on a good road to the future.

So you're wondering what made the last 7 days so hard? Well, Leif and I started the HCG Diet. I'm not going to go into detail about what the diet is all about. In order to really get the truth about it you have to read what the doctor who originally created it wrote about it. You can read it here: Pounds and Inches.

It has not been easy for me at all. I have realized that it is because I haven't been able to take vitamin B until now (it was in the mail.) So now, I'm feeling A Lot better. I really hope I'm on the road to this being the norm again.

On the good side, Leif and I have each lost 10 pounds in 11 days. That is a Good Feeling!! So, if you're really curious now, I'd REALLY love any cheerleaders that feel like cheering me on for the next few+weeks. Just go to our HCG Diet blog and give me a smile:)

On another great note, I got my floor mopped today! Just to know that it's clean for Caleb to crawl on gives me a relief. My floor is painted OSB board so I can't really value the look of the floor:) But I sure appreciate it when it's clean.

So anyway, that's a bit of an update in my world!

Busy Life Update

Writing, Reading, Driving, Talking, Eating, and Living.

Yep! That about sums it up.

Our classes have started and they are extremely time consuming (especially mine.) We're carefully working on the balancing act between school and life. Life being the family and church. So far I think we're managing. As for my dishes, that is a totally different story. They are looming over me tonight and I am not looking forward to conquering them! Luckily Leif is my Knight in shining armor and he has agreed to read to me as I wash them. He would help me wash, but the task at hand is for the matron of the home.

Jakob is growing up like crazy, as is Caleb. Jakob entertained us last night on a long drive with his version of coyote hunting. It was extremely detailed filled with fire, sneaking up behind them, and using fish on a hook as bait. We all had a good time looking out for the coyotes flickering eyes in the dark. Jakob has an amazing mind that stores every detail waiting for the slightest comment to remind him of the new found knowledge. He amazes Leif and I with his memory.

Caleb is finally steadily gaining weight. He is communicating more and more every day. He has mastered his unique rendition of a wave. He keeps his hand pointed to the ground and waves his arm back and forth. It is very cute. He is a little charmer just like his brother. What am a going to do with these Baron Boys!... Love Them!

Life is Good!
