Well, school is officially well underway and my life is passing by like a speeding car!! I just can't believe how quickly the days go by! So instead of rambling on with words...I'll show you some pics and update that way!
Our oldest has made the transition from elementary to j.r. high *sniff, sniff*. He's in the band, and has decided to play french horn!
I did my first 4 miler race on August 11th, and was the first female to cross the finish line. My time was 33:01, but I know I could have shaved a minute or so off if the course hadn't been so mucked up with 5 inch gravel pits :-( Regardless, I am proud of that race!
I'm not exactly sure why I took this pictures, or why I am including it on the blog...it's not exactly flattering! But it does reflect my week- work clothes, in the car, in serious thought about something, probably rushing to get to my next destination.
Another fabulous pic...obviously I should win an award for taking iPhone pictures. Anyhoo! There is so much background story/information to this picture...I'll have to share later. But let's just say God answers prayer, and we are so happy to be in each other's lives again!
For some reason, Landen and Alex LOVE to fall asleep in our big bed- even though Kevin takes them to their bed when it's our grown-up bedtime. This is how I found Alex one night...he had made a cocoon of all the pillows. Hilarious!
Ok- so we all know that I couldn't find my way out of a paper bag! Oh, well- not my talent! Last Friday some friends and myself went on a long run downtown. HA! I had NO CLUE as to where I was going. It was slightly annoying for me :-(. So this weekend I decided to be prepared. I studied the course map, wrote down directions on a post-it, laminated it, and pinned it to my shirt. Worked like a charm!!!!
And finally- LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this picture from our church's website! Our pastor has been preaching on love each Sunday. It's been just what I need!
So there you go! My life in a nutshell. See ya soon!!!
I have many hats...wife, mother, teacher, student, friend, daughter, sister, (chef, nurse, counselor, financial advisor...) just to name a few. I am enjoying the ride, and know that God has given me the strength to accomplish it all!
