So the boys finally started school yesterday. Is it totally nerdy that I have them wearing matching outfits? Lanny liked his first day of school, and was excited to tell us that they wrote numbers in shaving cream on their desks. How FUN! Logan liked his class too, and liked learning how to write letters using the clock face instead of the old way. We're excited to see the many different things they'll learn. It will be a great school!
Now we just have to figure out how to get Marlee to quit whining "I want to go to school" and "I want to grow bigger now." :) I do have to say I've enjoyed having one-on-one time with Marlee. We've been practicing counting, colors, and shapes. We'll work on letter recognition soon. I finally have time to do that with her! Hooray!

So this is pretty cool. Our washer kicked the bucket and we found some on craigslist but none of them worked out, for various reasons. So I went on Home Depot's website last night to order a new washer. It was going to be pretty darn expensive....so while I ordered I prayed saying, Ok Heavenly Father, if we aren't supposed to get this washer (which wouldn't be delivered for another week), please let something better come along that's a better deal before the new washer gets here. Lo and behold, our home teacher's wife (who is also my friend) wrote me a note on facebook today saying they got a different washer and are selling their old one (that's only a little more than a year old), and selling it for very cheap. It has what I'm wanting in a washer too...lots of room, and is a good brand. I didn't tell Lonni this yet, but this is totally an answer to a specific prayer! I just feel so blessed and so grateful that Heavenly Father is aware of our needs, even in the little things in life, and am grateful for His tender mercies in caring for us and answering our prayers. Cool huh?
