It really is amazing and they have wonderful reviews.
It's a world I'm not familiar with and thank goodness I hope never to be. Kenzi said she fights back tears and has alot of empathy for the girls that are there. I know she is going to learn alot about life. What a great experience.

Today in our RS lesson we talked about unconditional love from our Heavenly Father. He lays down for us "laws" that we need to obey. Just as we lay down "rules" for our own children. Our heavenly father may not like the choices we make, but will always love us. If we keep his "laws" there are great blessings for us to enjoy. If we don't then we only receive mediocre blessings.
I especially love the scripture in John 8:11 when Jesus came across the adulteress woman and said to her, not condemning the woman but said "Go, and sin no more". He was still kind and loving to her but stern. We as parents often have the same experiences with our own children. We love them, we don't like their actions but we still love them and they know it. I know my children know this because they have told me that.
I love my children. I know my parents love me, I know my Heavenly Father loves me and for this I'm thankful.

My high school had a five year reunion between 1978 - 1983. I went with my brother and his wife. It was pretty fun because... No one recognized me! They all had to look at my name tag to see who I was. One guy said, who I hung out alot with, "Holy S---! You look like a movie star! You look awesome!" He did not know who I was. I was so taken back I almost choked. Then I was talking to the cutest guy in my class, football star, quarter back, everyone wanted to be with him... and I had a hot flash! I was sweating so profusely I couldn't even get a grip. Sweat was running down the side of my face, perspiration on my upper lip, my hair was going limp, wow it was bad. But I got thru it and when I turned to leave he said, "Wow, Karla you look terrific." Yeh! That was the highlight of my year. (So far) Were only on Jan. 12th.
It really is true when they say the guys look bad that were so cute and the girls get better and better. It's true!

Here's my mom and dad. My older brother on the left, my more mature sister, and my baby brother in front of me. We had a nice visit while we were all together. I love them all in their unique way. We all have something to bring to the table and it's great. My mother is doing better everyday. The blood pressure is down a bit and cholesterol high. Those two things are being treated "aggressively". Mom's doctor is Dr. Kienle, very young and cute and needless to say we all three girls get along great with him. We make him laugh... :)
