I took Emily to the doctor the other day. When we got back to the car my battery was dead. She said that the doctor could drive us home. I told her he was busy. She said that the nurses wern't that busy and they could do it. I asked her if we should pray and she said "Nah" I said that we will pray anyway. Within a few minutes two nice people came up to my car and helped us until I was ready to drive away. On the way to her school, I asked her if she noticed anything. She reckognized right away that our prayer was answered. I know Heavenly Father was helping her with her testimony of prayer. It reminded me too.
I guess Emily gets more time on here than the boys, but she is much more interesting. I mean unique or maybe weird. However you look at it, Emily makes us laugh and pull our hair out. Emily got in trouble at school for goofing off. She explained to me that she was the class clown and the class clown always gets in trouble. "No one is funnier than me." She told me. So she explained getting in trouble goes along with the territory for class clowns so there's not much she can do about it.
Okay, let's see what the boys are up to. They both had basketball games yesterday. Joseph is such an awesome athelete. He plays defense agressively and even though he's tiny, he gets all up in their business. Chris had an exciting game. I know I'm the loudest parent there, but Chris and his team like my cheering. I even made a big sign to hold up while I yelled. I love to embarass Chris. They won by one point in overtime. It was awesome!! Joseph and Chris are always out hangin' with friends so I get Emily as my constant companion. Especially when her only friend is grounded for goofing around with Emily in class.
Joseph got all A's and a B+. He was upset about the B. He is always on the honor roll. At parent teacher conference he was rated (as usual) the most wonderful boy. Chris, well let's just say opposite of Joseph's grades, like Joseph a wonderful young man. Emily gets N for needs to improve, P for partial mastery, and Y for yes they have mastered that skill. She got mostly P's. It didn't phase her a bit. She said that the P stood for perfect and she got all "perfects". Way to go! She also got a 100% on her spelling test for the first time. (she only gets 4 words) She is so proud of herself. If you read this and want to call to congratulate her, it would mean so much to her. She used to just give herself an A+ on every paper she would bring home, but she's starting to catch on that she has to actually earn them.

Emily likes a little boy in her class. She told me that she made him admit that he liked her. She explained that her and her friend trapped this boy against the wall and told him to answer the question. Emily asked who he had a crush on. He told her three girl's names (including hers). She said that she was so happy she ran around the playground with her arms in the air chanting "USA, USA". I asked her why and she said because she won. She says that he has known about her crush on him for a long time. Well, I guess she had a happy Valentine's Day. The boy and Emily love Emily!
