What's new??

So what's new people?

I am so glad that fall is right around the corner, literally. We are finally out of the 90's and down into the high 80's around here which means I can wear jeans again which I love. Soccer is in full swing. Jacob had a MAJOR ear infection last weekend so he missed his game but the twins played theirs and they got better this week. As Jason says "at 5 playing soccer is like herding cats". So true!

School is going well for the boys, although the twins got a timeout last week which I was mad about. But I came to find out that there was a story, as there always is. Luke was reading and a kid came up and licked his face, so he ran off. The kid got up and took off after Luke. Nick got up and basically tackled the kid who went after Luke and I'm sure added a "don't chase my brother" in there somewhere. Let's just say that I have no worries for Nick's safety on the playground. He is definitely going to be my "jock". And therefor I have no worries about Luke because he is Nick's twin brother and shall forever be protected by his own personal bad ass bodyguard.

I was so sad to hear the news about Aleida Franklin. Members of the scrap community will know who I am talking about. She was killed in a car accident on Friday on her way to work. She has 2 small children (4 and 7) who are now without their mom. Just so sad. These are life's "punches in the gut" that make you realize it's always better to not stress and just slow down and breathe and enjoy the ride. Because you have no idea what tomorrow will bring. I was so stressed out last week about my store stuff and then this happened and I just let it all go, because it doesn't matter. In the end what matters is that your family life is manageable, happy and sane and that you live life to the fullest.

Peace, hugs and love!

Well, herding cats, eh? That was a riot! We also have special birthday dinners...the birthday person gets to choose but the twins get to choose 2 different dinner days which is great for them being older...
