Greetings from Pinetop, Arizona! I'm here this week to watch my sister Cherilyn's kids while she and David are on a trek with their ward. I thought it would be fun to document my days here, partly so I can remember what a great experience it will be, but mostly for Cherilyn to know the REAL story of what happened while she decided to leave her five children with me. :)

Here are some points of the day:
Steve (5) had a t-ball game. Cherilyn is one of the coaches, so since she was gone, the other guy was in charge. He was intense. He made the kids take a knee and watch the entire game. If they lost focus (imagine 5 year olds...they were pulling grass, spinning in circles, playing with siblings, etc.), he would put them in their place. It was kind of funny.
Steve was invited to go to a sleep over at his aunt's house (his 2nd favorite aunt, I am sure).
We got Little Caesars on the way home! Yup, they love me!
Mitch (12) talked me into letting him have a "late night" with some of the boys in the neighborhood. He said he would bribe me with gummy worms, but I told him he had to do all of the dishes in the morning. There are a lot of dishes in the sink, so he hesitated. But in the end, he agreed! They are off making cheesy videos. Oh to be 12 again...no thank you! :)
Amie (2.5)...oh Amie, what a cutie! I put her in bed an hour and a half ago, and she's still awake. She's just chillin...no complaining, not even talking or playing. She's just hanging out on her bed. We read a few books first. She's so cute as she talks. I love it when she asks a question and says, "Okay, Sannon?" Then she giggles.
Anyway, nothing extraordinary. These kids are so fun! If I have kids half this cute and fun, I'd be happy!
