My sister had surgery in September so J. and I went to Utah county to help her with her kiddo's . Thank heaven for home school! I don't know how we would have managed the "trip" if J. was in traditional school.
We were able to slip away one of the afternoons to visit family in SLC. J has lived away from northern Utah for so long that he can't remember ever going to the planetarium, temple square, etc. so we thought it would be fun to go. At first we were kind of disappointed because everyone was busy and couldn't come with us. It worked out nicely though. I was able to spend some time with my little guy doing something other than the usual day-to-day stuff.
We really really missed MBH! We will definitely have to go back to see the lights this Christmas...
all 3 of us!
