There is beauty if we choose to see


This was the sky over my back yard last week.  It has been raining quite a bit in the past month – or past few months truth be told.  When I take the time to just look up, I am reminded that there is beauty in the world.  What we choose to see is up to each one of us.

Beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder.

Things to Smile About


This boy is almost 8 years old … and although I want to pull my hair out some days, he makes me genuinely happy every single day. He has many friends and is so happy!  He really is a lot of fun to be around.


This boy is crazy as ever and keeps me on my toes!!  He climbs like a monkey and doesn’t sit still unless he’s asleep.  Thank goodness his kindergarten teacher has got his number – she rocks!!!

My baby is in Kindergarten!

This boy started kindergarten this year:


I could not be more proud of him!!  During the first few days there was a little joke among some of the parents (and even teachers) – myself included – about the fact that he had not met the Principal yet!  (We had actually met our new principal, but only in a positive good happy way. )

This one loves school just like his older brother.  He loves to learn and try new things … and he loves it when he makes good choices. (Okay, well maybe it’s me who loves when he makes good choices …)


And I am so grateful for all of these things!  But especially for him.

My boys make me proud every day.  I’m blessed to be their mom.
