We got back last night from a rapid quick trip to Utah for my grandpa's funeral and were able to see my entire family and most of Jason's family for at least a little bit. Got to finally meet Brynn and Jett and the kids were actually pretty wonderful in the car. It was just such a nice trip very grateful for it.
Before posting a million pictures, thinking about our first day home for fall break.
Besides unpacking and laundry and the always constant cleaning or cooking that goes on here is what we have already done.

love fall break because i'm always a fan of no school until no school actually happens and i think crap, what are we going to do all day i live with freaking tornadoes. good thing they are cute tornados.
woke them up this morning for scripture reading which i learned this summer made a big difference in all of our attitudes. jason didn't have seminary this morning and it was pretty awesome.
