“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

Adrienne comes to visit!!
Last weekend the parents of Adrienne's fiance came to Rexburg to drop off their daughter at BYU-I, so Adrienne tagged along! She got here on a Wednesday and stayed until Saturday evening. It was so good to see her again! We had a lot of fun with her! She and I went out to look at married housing and she found an apartment complex she loved! It is right across from the campus tennis courts. It is a great location and the apartment layout is really cute. After looking at a couple other places, she went back and signed a lease for next year. It will be fun to have them so close! We also chatted a lot about the wedding and scoured the internet for ideas to decorate the stake center gym so it doesn't look like a gym! One evening Jon's family came to dinner. It was fun to visit with them and get to know them better! I am so grateful she is marrying into a family with the same values and beliefs as us! The kids dragged Adrienne outside a few times to play and enjoyed her so much! They miss her a lot when she isn't here.
My amazing beautiful children!!
It was hard to send her back to Oregon. Each time she leaves I feel sad, its kind of like losing her all over again! I know she is getting ready to be married and will have her own life and family, but it is still hard letting go of my children!
