For FHE last night we drove to SLC to see mom and dad at the condo the Sipes own. It was a nice place. It was directly behind the Conference Center so the view was really nice. The kids swam and Harold and I spent the time talking with mom and dad. It is kind of strange having them live so close, but it still seems like it isn't real. I am sure that once they are in their own house with the furniture I recognize it will sink in that my parents actually live in Utah.
Today the kids and I are accompanying mom on a birthday present shopping trip for grandma B. I bought some jeans last week for Sav but she insists they are too tight so we have to take them back and get a different brand. By the way, those jeans weren't too tight. I think she is used to wearing baggier clothes and when things actually fit they feel "tight" to her. This frustrates me but I am trying to look at it in a positive light. I am hoping this means she has this inherent need to feel covered up and modest and that I won't have to deal with that particular problem while she is a teenager. So at this point I am looking forward to a modest teenage girl in my house that likes to talk back and give me a constant dose of cheek. (One of my favorite Scottish idioms.)
