Family Day

Today was rest for me! And play!

Nathan and I slept in until 7 (thank you, baby girl!) before he had to begin work on theater stuff and I got my Hebrew homework finished. We got cleaned up and ready for the day, fed and entertained the baby, and Nathan made chocolate chip pancakes for the kids.

General Conference was amazing!

Especially the womanhood/manhood talks and Elder Holland telling me to slow down, rest up, and get well.

Nice.

After conference, I took all the kids to the band competition finals in Broken Arrow! My nephew did so great! I was so proud! Yay Kickapoo!

The best part was that my brother and his family got to spend time with my kids, and they all got to know each other better.

And most of all, that I got to see my brother:

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
