Moving on...

K-2's teacher called this morning and he is being moved up to 1st grade math. You gotta love it when your child who just started kindergarten is being moved up in the 1st 2 weeks of school. He is a smart kid, I don't know what I am going to do with any of them when they will all be smarter then me by the time they are in the 3rd grade!

I am hoping my mom will be here before her birthday so we can help her celebrate it! It will be nice to get to have her around for a while. I had been missing them so much! It will give the boys a chance to get to play with her! She is a great grandma! She does all kinds of fun stuff with them and they love getting the extra attention! It will give her a break from life and a time to rest and get focused on herself now! I know that she can do anything that she sets her mind to. I wish she would write some children's books! Like an adventure for boys. There are no good books out there for boys! She use to make up stories when I was a kid with big glasses of chocolate milk it was the best.

Well I better be off to the rest of my laundry Shanna would be so proud at how organized I am getting now that I now longer have her around to waste my days with!

Not wanting

I feel like a ship lost at sea
without an anchor left to guide me.
Not wanting to continue feeling this way
and at the same time not wanting the feelings to go
away. Because then I will miss the part of him that
I still have.

I know that like all things in life that with time this
will get easier, but I am not sure how. My father was
the cornerstone that held everything together.

Even though I am trying to be strong for my mom,
it is so hard to see past my own pain. I often think
of how she feels being married to him for 35 years
and not having that person in her life, to share each
moment with. I feel so selfish for my own pain.

I will be out of commission for a few days my computer is getting some much needed work!

2 Wheels and Big deals

We finally did it..we convinced him to give it a try..he thought he could not do he knows he can..

I am so proud of K-1 he is such a big guy it was a shame that he could not ride a 2 wheel bike. He would not start on the new one, but decided to give the old one a try. With daddy to help him, mommy, mimi and papa to cheer him he went it was that simple. Such a big guy so proud of him!

Hello,hello again lallaalla

We hello friend! The in-laws are in town this week. It is so nice to have family again! Since we have not seen anyone for a year now. I was showing them all the pictures from the last year and noticing that most of the good times were spent with Shanna and the gang. I miss them, I hope that they are loving Texas. We are planning a trip down next summer to hang out with them and my best friend Silvia. Today my mother-in-law and I are going to see Mama Mia. In Utah no one really does anything on Sunday's so it is a nice time to get out when there are no crowds! The boys are going fishing with Papa and daddy.

Last week was a blur. I was the director for Vacation Bible School and the week just flew by. With 100 kids what do you expect. It was a lot of fun, the boys had a ton of crafts when they came home.

I was lucky enough to score some school year kits by Becky Higgins. Angela had called me because she had gotten a hold of some. I was so excited. Thanks Angela you are fabulous for thinking of me!

Well I will post some pics soon! Hope your day is great!
