HUSBAND in High Demand!!

Rich, was just called to be our wards Young Mens President on top of his coaching responsibilities I feel like I might not ever see my husband again!! He loves working with the youth and feels edified when he works with the youth. I went and watched a practice last week and it was awsome to see him with outstretched arms on the shoulders of a huge football player. Later, he told me he was telling the boy he expected more from him and he wasn't reaching his potential. Rich has a magical touch when it comes to reaching out to adolescent boys.
I have been working 20-30 hours at Moonridge Academy doing therapy with adolescent girls. I love my job! The staff are very personable and it really feels like my second home.
Last Week, was a long week! By the end of the week I could hardly keep back the tears from being away from my baby for so long. I think he felt the same way as he reached for me when I picked him up on friday.
Abel has changed our lives, he is the best thing that has happened to me, I love to see him grow and learn new things. We have been forcing him in crawl position because he is content just chilling in one place. I think he might have Rich's personality, he certainly looks more like Rich every day. However, he gets bored easy and I think crawling would help with that.
This last weekend, Rich was stretched thin as he helped my family build a brick wind wall until Saturday afternoon, then, came home and helped me clean carpets for a few hours. We are feeling the fall coming and the urgency to get all our cleaning-repairing projects done before its too cold.
This morning was beautiful and crisp as I took Abel on a run in the running stroller and of course Abby ran along side us. My neighbor Tiffany was in our clan as well, I am thinking this is going to be a family affair a couple times a week. I have been struggling maintaining my workout regime since I started working at Moonridge.
