The kids made this medal for Talmage because he kept besting at combatives and "every winner has to have a metal".

They had some of the bananas for breakfast. We froze the rest and made "ice cream" with them. There are still a few more left. They sweetly attempted to make me a salad with avocados (you can see some rolling around on the floor). I finished making the salad they started and ate it for breakfast.

I sleep in today for the first time in a while, well kind of. Actually I just stayed in my bed while they came to me with their problems. I solved big dilemmas such as;
"Sorry that is not your shirt anymore, it is too small on you. ...I know it is your favorite."
Or “Yes, I understand that you don't like the princess movie Heber. ...Yes, it is pretty girly. ...That's ok because it is not time to watch a movie."
Or "I'm sorry Hannah bit you, come cuddle by me."
So after I finally got up, this is what I found in the kitchen. Haha! That what happens when I sleep (or hope to sleep) on the job.

I love my sister Angel. She flew home Saturday night. I fill blessed to have her here for a month. I feel like it came together perfectly, like God orchestrated it. We had such a great time. She has made the first month of Talmage being gone breeze by a lot more smoothly than when I'm all alone. I do NOT know how my SIL, Nikki, does it when Caleb is deployed for months on end. I can tell it is hard. And when I get a taste of what she went through I respect her even more.
Angel and I both realized how relatable we are to each other. We drove the kids nuts with our chattings. And stayed up too late talking. I feel like I can be deep and real with her. Are conversations were silly some times but kept returning back to deeper stuff like life and spiritual stuff. I am SO thankful for my little sister, who is not my little sister anymore, but my equal. I love her.

I tried to take a picture of us to send to Talmage to put up in his only authorized spot. After several attempt I might be able to pick one where we are all looking at the camera with an ok expression on all our faces. I love how I looked buried in a see of faces.
