Packing up Stacking up our Dreams...

So we are moving again, just this time it will be locally. It is so not fun moving. I should no I am by now a self proclaimed expert! Considering how many times I have done it, I should be! So needless to say I might be out of commission for a week or so. I leave for Maryland on Thursday in the midst of all this craziness! SO wish me luck!

Where does my time go?

I have no idea how the days pass by so fast? Today I went to a boutique show with a friend from MOPs. Then we went to story time at the library and out to lunch. I then went shopping to pick a few items for a project I am working on and to Walmart for some staples (in this house that means Mexican food item). By then it was time to pick the oldest up from school. We get home do homework, laundry and play. Then I am off to dinner with Sarah and Carrie to talk about the next 2 upcoming MOPs events. The garage sale and another scrapbook night! I have also signed on to be the Director for Vacation Bible School this year.

I love VBS! I remember when I was kid and going to VBS. It is so much fun for the kids. They get to learn, do crafts, make treats, play games, watch plays and sing. It lasts for a week. This year it starts on my birthday (yeah). So it runs from July 28th to August 1st. It is like a mini day camp for kids. So we have a lot to do before then!

A Face Lift...

So my beautiful friend Shanna gave my blog a face lift. I love the new look! It is so me for those of you in the know! Good friends are hard to find and I was lucky to find this one when I first moved to Utah. Both our husbands work for the same company. She is a wonderful friend, a fabulous mother, she is always willing to give of herself and her time! For the last few weeks she has been helping me set up my flicker account and get all my pics transferred. That is a true friend!

So onto the next topic how do you deal with boys? They will do anything to make other boys laugh is this something that they grow out of? I have had a day today with K-1 and he hasn't even been home for an hour yet!

I thought this was funny who agrees?

Time goes by...

The last week was crazy. We did so much we went to the Aquarium, movies, Zion Nat'l Park and Discovery kids. I think the boys had a great time! The oldest turned 7 someone tell me where does the time go? It seems like only yesterday I gave birth to the kid! Now he is almost as big as I am. He is such a great guy, very loving and loyal. I hope that he always keeps that about him. He is so much like his dad. i love that guy :)

Moments "Oh'dear"

Everyday is made up by moments... One of my moments last night was cutting the boys hair. Oh you will love this...

Korbin~ do I have to get my haircut?
Me~ Yes, Korbin you look like a pixie!
Korbin~ Oh' dear...

The whole time I am cutting this kids hair he is saying "Oh'dear I'm going to be bald"...

The boys I share my life with make it worth wild. Over the last few years they have taught me so much about myself. They have shown me who I want to be!

To see the world through the eyes of a child. Where everything is beautiful, safe, loving and kind.

I have been told several times this week that I have good boys, and how do I do that?
I am never sure how to answer that question. Lots of times I feel like I am not doing enough. Life is the best lesson that we can teach and our example is the best that we can give our children.

So my new answer is "I tell them this is not a democracy it is a hierarchy and I am the QUEEN, and all must obey the queen"! People seem more then a little shocked by this here in Utah. Which makes it all the more fun for me!

So excited...

So I leave for Maryland in 26 days! I get to see Court get married! I love that girl like she is my own. Plus, I get to catch up with all my east coast girlfriends. That is the hard thing about moving all the time. You have great friendships, but do not always get to see them as much as you would like! None the less they are some of the best friends you could ever ask for. Thank God for the Internet!

I am leaving for a retreat in Park City today. I am so ready to go shopping. Park City reminds me more of home. It is nice to get the small break from the kids and my husband is gracious enough to understand the time away only makes me a better mom and wife. I love getting to recharge.

Kallen is having a tough time. He comes up to me and says "mom I am going to miss you while you are in Park Cities". I love my four guys so much. They are a great group of boys that I hope will be wonderful dad's and husbands someday!

I hope that you all have a great weekend....
