“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

Summer Sisters

My friend Lori is in town for the summer. She and her family moved to the Boise area a few years ago but she is here working for the summer and brought along her two cute little girls, Claire who is 7 and Grace who is 3 and a half. We have had them in our home 10 hours a day from the beginning of June. When Adrienne first met them, she dubbed them the Summer Sisters and it has stuck! They will be with us through the first week of August and we are enjoying having playmates over on a daily basis.

We have enjoyed LOTS of playtime at the park, many trips to the library, bike rides, swimming and playing with the huge assortment of Playmobile toys we have. We have also taken advantage of free lunches and local schools and parks. We also got to watch the Fourth of July fireworks in banks with them! It has been a fun summer so far!!
