It's been a crazy couple of weeks! Candice and I had our final girls' chorus "Silly Songs" concert- we have loved singing with these girls and will miss doing this!

Clara had her Kindergarten play, "Little Red Riding Hood"- she was a beautiful butterfly!

My sweet Grandpa Darwin passed away last week. We will miss him so much, but it was really good to have him in Mesa for a month and we had some wonderful visits. It's bittersweet because he's gone, but I know he had a joyous reunion on the other side with my Grandma Olive. His funeral will be on Saturday, and although not a fun occasion, it means we get to have Mason, Kelli, and J.D. in town for a few days!

And last, but not least, Candice had her baby on Saturday! Grant William Drew was around 9 lbs (the scale at the hospital was broken, so they'll never really know how much he weighed) and he couldn't be cuter. I can't get enough of this sweet boy.

I know it's been quite the week. Oh sweet baby Grant. Of course I LOVE the name. Candice sent a cute pic to me the other day from the viewing of baby Grant with my daddy Grant. She's so darn cute.

And Clara was the performer this week. She did fabulous at the recital! Good job, Clara girl! :)
