Project 365 - Day 212

Jennifer wanted to take the picture tonight.
Fudgy Peanut Butter Bars !!!! Our snack after dinner.

Random Happenings

Wow !!!
This a all over the place post.

I have been so busy.

Well first off the first week of school is in and it seems to be going well. Kids all have wonderful teachers. I know the teachers personally that Jennifer & Thaniqua have. I haven't met Ridge's teacher yet. Back to school night is this coming Wednesday evening so I'm looking forward to meeting her. Thaniqua for some reason had no homework last week. Ridge and Jennifer did. I'm sure things will be in full swing this week.

Carly is adjusting to the kids being gone. Just some Mommy/Carly time which is so nice. My stepson Jared is here but I sorta try and over look that. Carly and I have been walking the kids to school every morning. It is so nice and cool. In the afternoon I have been leaving her at home/w Jared. It's been so HOT & no air moving. Plus it gives him something to do instead of just sit on the computer. I also did some extra walking last week and walked 15 miles so proud of myself. Yay !!

This past week has been emotional for me but I somehow done really well. Done a lot of praying and even though I tried to hide a lot of it the kids sure helped me a lot. I just keep thinkin through it all so I'm blessed.

Today I made some yummy Fudgy Peanut Butter Bars so I guess it is time for our snack. Hoping I get to writing and reading like normal. It is something I love to do so much.

Also I have been busy doing lots of crosstitching. Stitches of Love is off to a great start. Yay !!!

Project 365 - Day 210

Road work near our home. Yucky !!!!

Five Minute Friday ~ Still

I found this blog hop & thought I would join in. Sometimes it seems like all I have is Five minutes.

Five minutes to just write, and not worry if it’s just right or not. Kind of like how the rest of my life is at the moment.

Want to join me?

1. Write for only five minutes.
2. Link up by clicking on the button.
3. Go leave some comment love for the five minutes
who linked up before you.

It’s great , give it a try and see. Here is the topic ~


GO .......

Still a good word for me this week. It's the one thing I haven't been. I have been so busy first week of school , a lot of other things going on. Just trying to get some sort of daily time table set again. Even though I know we won't really follow it everyday.

I love those still moments when I do get them. I just wish when I needed to be still that I could. Sometimes it's so very hard. My step-son that lives with us doesn't work & he is 21. It's so hard to not get upset all the time.

I pray to God to help me in that area. So it's something I will have to work on.


My five minutes for today.
OK, your turn – show me what you’ve got.

Today I'm really busy but while Carly was watching something on Nick Jr. I thought I would take a minute to play on the computer. I found this on a new site I'm in love with.

So beautiful , Have a wonderful day.

2 Days Down

Well school has started for the gang. Lots of smiles, happy moments , meeting new friends.

We have two days in , Yay !!! The kids have awesome teachers. I had lots of paperwork to fill out last night. They might all attend the same school but everyone has there own forms. Anyway the kids are super happy to be back. There is only one person that might not like it. Little Miss Carly , this morning I walked the kids to school & of course Carly in the stroller. Well she cried when she couldn't go with them. She misses them at home & yells down the hallway for them. I know give her a bit and she will get used to it again. This morning Carly took a short nap and I was cleaning. The house was so quiet. I'm glad for it all. They were bored and ready to go back. I was ready too.

I'm excited to see them grow & blossom even more.

Dear Riley

Hello my sweet boy !!
Hope your doing good in Heaven. I miss you so much. Today I miss you just a little more. Today would have been your first day of school. Kindergarten a big step. This morning when I went to get up , it was tough. I knew this day was coming so much. I cooked breakfast for your brother & sister's. I thought about what you might have ate. I held back the tears.

As I took the picture of the kids before they ran out the door. I missed you being in the picture. I could see you with your little backpack. I could picture you waving goodbye to me at school. I'm going to miss all that sweetie. Just know you are never forgotten. So loved so missed.

So today when I go get the kids at school it will be hard to see all those parents picking up there little ones. I know you should be there but God had bigger plans for you & us. There will be a day just as God has promised. I will see you forever my sweet <3 Riley <3.

I love you little one. Until that day lots of XXXXXXOOOOOO
We all love you so much.

Happy excited KIDS !!!

Sunday, July 24, 2011

Lately ........

I've been busy ........

just thinkin of so much.

Sometimes I so wish things were different but I know that they are just as God planned them.

Today was my Grandma's Birthday !!! Happy Birthday Grandma !!
The only part is she lives in Heaven. She was such a wonderful christian lady. She taught me a lot. I spent lots of time at her house in the summer. Great times & wonderful memories made. I know I will see her one day & I can't wait.

On a bright note ~ School starts tomorrow.
Our children attend a yr round school , so there summer is over six week break.
They are excited for it. They miss there friends and school. We spent lots of time going to the library to get new books for them to read. I feel its important to at least read 30 min everyday.

So tonite while I was on the site pinterest I found this.

I'm so glad the kids enjoy going to school. I'm looking forward to another great year. I still can't believe I have a 5th grader , next year Middle school ~ WOW !!

On the other side , we have some kids that live in our apt complex that are doing a lot of bullying. So I'm glad to see the kids go back. The children that live here go to the regular school yr. It's really sad how mean some children really are. It really makes me wonder what they will be like in 20 yrs.

Well I'm outta here and looking forward to a new year with lots of positive & so much Hope in everything we do.


Project 365 - Day 205

Tonight Jennifer , Thaniqua & I went grocery shopping at Walmart.
Jennifer found this pretty backpack.
School starts this coming Monday !!! We all are so excited !!!


Love this .......

Just online doing some image looking and found this. It really hit me right when I needed it. So true !!

Prayers for Tripp

Please pray for this wonderful mother and her angel baby. They inspire me every day. Since first reading their story, I have thought twice every time I think that my kids are driving me nuts... Because I am so blessed that they are ABLE to drive me nuts. If you ever have a poor pity-me moment, take a moment to read this incredible mothers blog. No matter how bad we may think our situation is, chances are we would not even to begin to imagine the trials this family face every day!

Thanx so much.
