Park Day

We played hard today!

We went to four parks and played outside almost all day at the river!

Well, some of us.

Mary didn’t finish her chores, and Barrett got himself kicked out of school so he was grounded today.

And Kyrie slept through all but the last park, but she played hard when she got there!




When we got home, Nathan was making banana jam.

Because of course he was.


All restitution paid and natural consequences served, we rejoined as a big group to make homemade tacos for supper.

That’s always a favorite, and always a win.

We got into pajamas and said prayers and ended the day with songs that will hopefully bring sweet dreams and a Happy Sabbath tomorrow.

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.
