Saturday we got up early. Today was a special day. Barry got to go play softball with two teams made up of different wards.  Of course he had a lot of fun and Melody and Orrin played on the playground close by.  

Melody is getting really creative.  She started making all kinds of things in the sand at the playground and I am continually amazed at how fast my kids are growing up.

After the game we headed over to the Shurts’s house and Barry cleaned their windows.  

There was a special event for the women in our ward to go to and Russel and John Shurts were watching all their kids at the same house and babysitting three extra, plus our two kids for a grand total of 13 children running all over.  

There was an abundant supply of macaroni and cheese, and Mickey Mouse chicken nuggets.  The kids had so much fun.

The only downfall of the day is that I misplaced Barry’s phone after confiscating it from  Orrin.


About Trisha Perkins

Hi, my name is Trisha Perkins. I was born in St. George Ut, and raised in many different places. California, Texas, Panama, North Carolina, and Utah have all been home for me. My family moved back to St. George Ut after my father left the army. I was home schooled most of my school years, then enrolled for long distance schooling from an accredited high school. I taught gymnastics and swimming for 3 years. Then I realized I wanted to learn more about children, because I didn't know enough about them and I wanted to be prepared for motherhood. I taught montessori preschool for one year, then I went to a summer camp in New Mexico to teach horse back riding. Now I have to back up a little. A couple of my friends had gone to this same summer camp to teach the year before and one of their friends from camp tagged along with them back to St. George. Here enters the Pioneer. My life would never be the same. I tapped into a soul that I didn't know the voltage of. I met Barry Perkins. He proposed to me while scuba diving off of the Californa coast. We were married in the St. George temple on October 16th 2004. We have always wanted to give our children the best education. Leadership education! We wanted to travel and let them experience different cultures and countries and read great books and be a united family. So here we are starting off on a journey of a lifetime.
