All to myself

Bill is pretty well absent from the family right now.

And he will continue to be, until all the events, conferences, concerts, etc., begin to die down after graduation at the university.  


This time of year can be really tough.

That's why I am looking so forward to tomorrow night.

Tomorrow is Sunday.

And on Sunday nights, after ward prayer, we tuck the kids in bed.

And then we do something
really sneaky.

We go for a walk.

In our neighborhood.

Hand in hand.

Without our offspring.

And I get to have Bill 

(if just for a moment)...

...all to myself.

I think Shawn and I should make that our new Sunday tradition. I feel like I never get him to myself. Thanks again Nat, we got the title, your amazing! I want to be like you:)

I love this post. I feell the same way even though I don't have kids. John and I get to go on a walk with our dog and it is just relaxing. Driving back and forth to Provo and John's work schedule kept us very busy

You are amazing! Hang in there.... That is great that you two have your own little, unique "out'. Those are the moments that make life.

Hey family -

I've tracked you all down and have started to follow your blogs. (You were talking about them at the LAST family reunion and the next one is coming up...)

I've kept a personal website for over 2 years and a blog for 18 months. I know I'm not married like all you folks so I don't have cute pics of kids to put up but I do try to write about things that are more appealing to everyone. (Perhaps I should write about my own family more often)

Anyway, hope to see you guys soon.
