Walt Disney World!

We took the kids to Walt Disney World to celebrate my 40th birthday and we had an amazing time. This is the second time we have gone..our kids were all big enough to go crazy and ride all the fast rides..over and over. Thank goodness for Bill he kept up with them while many times I would go find some shade and a cup of ice and make friends will all the old people sitting on the bench. We did all four parks and LOVED IT!!! I am sad to say we had to come home to Idaho :(

Jackie Robinson

Jacob did a report on Jackie Robinson for his challenge program. He had to pick someone who made a significant contribution to the world. After doing all the research, writing and then typing his report he presented it. He did an AMAZING job! We are so proud of him!

The Sting of Winter

Summer is long gone, a blanket of snow now covers the ground where my garden grew. The sting of winter slaps my face and takes my breath away when I step outside. Life is crazy busy with the kids and all the driving..driving...driving! I feel like I spend all winter counting down the days until summer returns. I am a California girl and proud of it, I love the sun and the heat. I sometimes wonder how Bill and I ended up living in the snow when we both dread it. We have been married 17 years now and have spent every one of those years living where it snows. I went to lunch with friends on Saturday and confessed that I HATE The Snow! They were all so shocked by my words, I laughed! I am not afraid to say it! It just isn't all that it's cracked up to be. So I decided this morning I would wake up and have a new outlook on the snow, make friends with it than maybe I would enjoy winter! Well lets just say I tried..I still HATE it and want to move to the beach! :)

Do you ever have that moment in your life when you experience something that you hope you will never forget? Lately I have been trying to cherish the "good" in my life. I have so much of it and I know I take it for granted. I often hope that I will never forget sweet moments that I am so blessed to experience. I try and capture these experiences in my heart and hold onto them forever.
