It got pretty hot here yesterday, but it wasn't to bad. I love the weather that you can open the doors and air out your house and sit on the patio and read a book. Oh ya you have to have time to sit on the patio and read a book. I love to read. We went to Mikaylas recital last night. She did such a great job. She is so cute. I remember when all my girls did that. It seemed to hectic at the time to get them ready, and there on time and save seats. The recital is much better in the place they have it now. So much more room and better seats. We took them to ice cream after. Trenton had colored ice cream. All different colors. He told grandpa all the colors as it ran down his chin. He wouldn't let anyone wipe it but himself. He is funny.

Well, our apricot tree decided to make ripe fruit this week so I have been making apricot freezer jam. I can't wait to eat it. I shopped all day with Sarah and Katelyn. We had a great time. My daughter is a wonderful mother. She must have had a great teacher. lol She has lots of patience with her children. She loves staying home with them. It is hard having 3 kids. To me it was the hardest because usually your oldest isn't old enough to help much. By your fourth kid you have one that is a big helper. My son is a wonderful father. I don't know of any other dad that gets up in the middle of the night with the baby. He does it every night. I hope his wife appreciates all the training I did. lol He helped Sarah and I make apricot jam today. I have wonderful loving kids. Our family loves to tease but everyone seems to be able to take it and it isn't the same person every time. They also know when to be spiritual. I really love have 9 kids and I love telling people I have 9 just to see their faces. I really love them all. I also love my 4 1/2 grandkids. They are the cutest. I totally love my family and wouldn't wish for anything more or less.
