Mary Rachel is in 7th grade at Brown Junior High School.
|I tried to loan her my bright blue Hello Kitty necklace but she likes to keep things simple.|
I picked her up along with Sara and Nikki after school. I asked Mary what her favorite class was and she said it was too early to tell. I asked the same thing about the teachers and she said the same things. I guess she's reserving judgment--there's no benefit of the doubt for her. At home she said, "Well, Tyce and I must not look like twins anymore because none of the teachers knew I was his sister until I told them. Then they were all gushy and like, 'oooo, we love Tyce!'" Overhearing this Tyce said, "See, I told you, Mary!"
Cameron and Harrison are in 2nd grade at Sue H. Morrow Elementary. Their teacher is Mrs. Cropp.

I walked the boys to class and picked them up when school was over. I asked if they'd fooled Mrs. Cropp and Cam said, "Well, she forgot which one of us was which and she said, 'Oh, I can't keep you two straight!'" So I guess that even though they don't look alike it's still hard to tell them apart. They also said they had a really great day and that they knew most everybody in their class.
As for me, I cleaned the house. I read the scriptures. I even meditated. Ah, I was so quiet and peaceful. I've been rethinking my plan to go back to work in the traditional sense. I'm not sure it's right for us right now because even though the kids are older, they need me. They don't think they do but they really do. I may have to work in the evenings or some odd hours instead of an 8-5 job right now. I have been praying for guidance and I know that I will be led to whatever it is I am supposed to do.
P. S. We're late to the party but Bryce, Tyce, and I are totally hooked on Downton Abbey. Do you watch it? Do you love it? We can't wait for the next season to start!
P. P. S. Seminary starts next week after Labor Day. If not for the physical exhaustion I suffer from getting up that early, I'm really looking forward to teaching the New Testament to a great group of kids.
