So much . . .

There are so many activities and projects going on right now that I might start feeling a little crazy.  But truly, I have so much to be grateful for and I'm choosing to love every crazy minute of my life.

Recently I was published in Creating Keepsakes magazine's Sept/Oct issue.  Here is my layout - it was a fun one to make.

We are still busy trying to raise money for Aubrei.  Her dance team has been invited to dance at the Holiday Bowl and parade.  It is such an honor and she's really excited, but it is an expense we weren't prepared for - so we are so thankful for all of her sponsors and all those who supported us at the farmer's market this year.  Here is a layout I did of the diamond dance team she is on.

Ainsli has started taking piano lessons this year.  Lucky girl gets me as her piano teacher.  Let's just call it a project in patience and our part in saving money to get Aubrei to San Diego.  :)

My baby boy started kindergarten this year.  He is doing amazing!  He has a great teacher and loves school, but this Mommy misses her buddy sometimes still.  I can't believe how fast they are growing up!

So yes, between early-morning seminary, school, volleyball, dance, tumbling, soccer, and piano things do get a little crazy sometimes.  But each night when we are together as family reading the scriptures and praying together I am reminded what is truly important and how fleeting all of this will really be.  I am so very blessed and truly grateful for all that this moment in our lives entails!

Thanks for recording these memories. We are so busy that at times I know I have missed some important stuff I will want to remember. I love you dear!
