A post for Uncle Seth

Uncle Seth is a big favorite around here. It was so fun having him around during his first year of college and we are going to miss him now that he's home.
Sophie just loves Seth, she recognizes his car, she saves a place for him at the table every night for dinner, and she always thinks the phone call is from him.
Seth's getting ready for a mission and I am so proud of him for that and for all he is. He really has grown up to be a great guy. I love my brother.
In Sophie's scriptures we found the picture below of Heleman (Alma 53:19-22) , we decided it looks like Seth. Now every night when we read the scriptures she is sure that we are reading about Seth. I thought what a great guy for her to compare him to. Last week he and I traveled back to Oregon and we had so much fun. I really will miss having him around. Proud of you Seth!
Feels like everything is going too fast around here. We've had a little bit of everything-
a few moments like this:

A bunch of times like this:

and some of this almost every day:


I found this quote the other day and while I don't 100% agree with it all, I do love fall and this spring has been rather fickle.

“Every year, at around this time, I have the same argument with a friend: he claims that spring is the greatest season, while I morosely plump for autumn. With autumn, I argue, you know where you are: the evenings are drawing in and the russet-toned leaves connote one thing: the plunging into the long, dark night of the year’s soul. It’s gloriously brooding and it never disappoints. “Oh, but spring is joyous, beautiful, etc, etc.” No, spring hugs you and then slaps you. Just when it’s promised you sun-dappled treasures it snatches them away and splashes you cold in the face. April is not only the cruellest month, it’s deceitful, it’s unfriendly and it’s downright abusive. Bah-springbug.”
-Dan Stevens

Here are some pictures to prove it.

Notice the wet spot from my hair? The below picture was taken soon after, it was warm out.

Well in all honesty I do love spring, if nothing else for the reason that winter is over. This year spring has been mostly nice and getting a little sunshine is always a good thing.
