Anber and Barrett got into the pile of Branson brochures they leave in our condo, using them to play “homework”:

Although, Anber did read her first full book today all by herself:


Meanwhile, Alex and Seven declared themselves well enough for Silver Dollar City, which I said meant they were well enough for real homework:


There will be no using free passes if people are still sick.

Kirk, then, got to go on a daddy date to check out some games from the office, and we can all have a resting day together.

The baby, though, might be the only one getting any rest!


She needed it because she is almost crawling, if you count a little scoot in between:


The toddlers helped me make vegetable stew for dinner tonight:


Then they played picnic, because they are very, very busy:

We made a simple quinoa and black beans with butternut squash soup for lunch for our real picnic!

It really was all very exciting for being a resting day!

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. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
