Laura—still doing the same stuff. I love being a mom and taking care of our family. I enjoy the Young Women and I have really grown close to the girls and the leaders. We are having some great activities. I am looking forward to girls camp and the Stake Pioneer Trek. I really love playing outside and it was a great day when we set up our trampoline and hammocks. My favorite time is when we go as a family on bike rides. We have such a fun bike trail right here in the Valley.
