Our kids have the best grandparents (& great-grandparents). Period. You can't even compete.
They play quick-draw, they give out silver dollars and lemon drops, they have sleepovers and take shopping trips to the dollar store, they swim, they loan movies, they play dress-ups, they read stories, they send letters, they teach marbles and pick-up sticks, they make chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast and sew teddy bears. And that is just for starters.
As we've moved, Jared and I secretly hoped for an adventure location, some place new to both of us. But we've been UT to VA to UT and back to VA so far. Our families have always been so supportive and wonderful. Sometimes you don't appreciate things until you don't have them and sometimes you appreciate things when you realize you really couldn't do without them. The past few months of intern year have been so brutal, I can't imagine trying to get through without family. My parents have really stepped in and lightened my load time after time, whether letting us drop in unannounced for dinner or watching the kids so I can fulfill my callings or giving a struggling kid some extra tlc - I can't believe we thought it would be "fun" to live somewhere new. Soooo stupid of us!
