So it is a pretty well known fact that the Perkins family loves Jamba Juice. We became a little spoiled in Korea with one of the store locations being so close to base. Barry got desperate and smart! Barry looked up some copy cat recipes and they are spot on. So with Cousins rolling into town it was time to whip out the smoothie maker. Barry is the smoothie king. He has all the makings for his favorite, THE DREAM MACHINE.

On a side note, I bought all the makings for some wall mounting bookshelves. Three for the kids and two teacher shelves. I ended up getting the wrong width for one of my boards. Even so Barry was able to put one together and put it up in my school room! I am excited about these new shelves. No more books being stacked the wrong way, and falling over. We can also keep them away from the baby’s reach.

All my kids were really glad to see their cousins:) Happy sounds of chase and tag were a constant sound for the evening. Kids are so funny to watch. I am laughing now just thinking about what fun they were having. We brought some wooden crafts out. Orrin really had fun making and watching the dinosaur go together. This craft still required a lot of help from mom.

The dinner meal offered some fun for all. Corn on the cob was a success. All the children helped shuck the corn!

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.
