Today is my mother-in-laws (Elaine Jenkins) birthday. It is also St. Patricks Day. She was born in Los Angeles, California and lived there until she was married. Then she moved to Freedom, Wyoming (Star Valley). They lived in a little tiny house that was used for the boys to stay in when taking care of the dry farm. They didn't have running water, a bathroom or any of the necessities. They built on to that house, raised 6 kids and had numerous grandkids in that house. They are now in Layton, Utah, where they have lived for the last 2 years. It wasn't an easy life, especially coming from the big city, but she did it. Happy Birthday Mom Jenkins!

I live a very busy life with 1 husband, 6 kids, 2 daughters-in-law, 1 son-in-law, 2 grandsons,1 cat and my son and DIL's 1 yellow lab (temporarily for 1-2 years). I have been a Kindergarten Reading Aide for 7 years. I am hoping to keep in touch with daily (ok weekly) life here...mine, friends, family.
