This month has marked the longest we have ever lived in one place! It is so exciting to finally have a tree in our yard big enough to actually have leaves that will change color in the fall! Someday this tree is going to be really big, and I will have swings hanging from either side for my grandkids to swing from! Watching this tree grow and thinking about the time we have spent in this home has left me feeling so grateful. I love when I go to church I can look at so many different people, and remember serving with them in one calling or another--I love that the neighborhood kids I worked with when they were in kindergarten still remember me even though they are in 3rd grade now! I love that my kids get mad when we go to Smiths because I always see someone I know, and have to stop to talk! I love that I remember Candace Gibby's ( our neighbor) 13th birthday party, because her and her friends kept us up all night--and now she is a Sr. in high school! I love that when we moved here Alex was still in Primary and now I watch him bless the sacrament on Sunday! I am not usually one to like change--but I guess I do not mind things changing, as long as I have some constants around me--like friendships, and memories, and children and trees growing up!
