She wanted to get a haircut with 'side bangs' so we took her in on Tuesday as an early Birthday present.
Elise had a great time in Monticello. The youth stayed in a hotel where they got to swim and stay up all night (Our Bishop told us that the Deacons put notes under the Beehives door all night.... things along the lines of "Deacons rule, Beehives drool." What a wonderful and innocent age!) They had an evening fireside with one of the Temple Presidency as well as a sunrise hike/devotional at Wilson Arch before getting baptized Saturday morning. I think it was a pretty great way for Elise to spend her birthday. I am so glad she is a part of our family. I spoil her, but I am also hard on her because she is the only girl. She has really had to step up this year with John being gone, and me teaching seminary. She is often responsible for getting herself, Jackson, and Jebb ready and off to the bus in the morning. She always has a great attitude about it and I am so glad she is here.
