I think I divorced my blog.

As I sit here.......I stare at my computer.....I think I divorced my blog.  In the beginning, I was a pretty good blogger,  every couple days I would check in, then outa no-where.....we split.  Somewhere between scouts......laundry....we lost touch.  A small part of me fears rejection and negativity from others but I was reminded by a friend who heard from a friend (thank you Hydie) it's about my life.  It's my blog. I'm rekindling my blog-love...... I'm back baby!  More to come soon.

I love books.......

Talking to my daughter, she asked why I like to read.  My reply:  " The amazing thing about books is every time you open a book you realize your on an adventure you never even knew you were on."

She paused, smiled and walked away.
I just finished up the Huger Games trilogy.  I give it 2 thumbs up.  I'm embarking on a new trilogy.....Inkheart.  Any one read them?
What was you childhood favorite?  Mine......"The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe"  By C.S. Lewis.  My mother could probably recite it she has read it so many times.  My 9 year old is reading it now.......

So do tell what book have you read multiple times or what's your favorite childhood story????

Island Park Adventures

A couple weeks ago we slipped away for a long weekend in Island Park.  It felt like winter there.  Magical and white.  The trees were covered, the house, the roads.  It was amazing!  I snapped this photo of Annaliese and Cam as they were being drug down the drive way on a tube ride.   These two......have a bond that is indescribable.  You can see it in this photo and I love that.  He adores her to say the least and she gets annoyed with him occasionally. But they truly love each other.   He loves to listen to her read, probably due to the fact she read to him every night while I was pregnant with him.  Annaliese is an incredible big sister and I'm thankful everyday for her.  She is the "big sister", the protector, and yes, the boss.  Or so she thinks most of the time.

 We went to West Yellowstone for the day.  While there went to a Bear and Wolf habitat.  Here are my little cubs in the bears lair.

 Hey there bobble heads! Cam fell asleep while riding the snowmobile with me.......zzzzzzz....

Have a Fabulous weekend!

2 kids off to school

Little lady started school today.......a new school.  "Her sister's school" she will tell you.

How did this happen?

What seems like yesterday,  I was home with 2  giggly little girls playing tea and babies and school days seemed forever away, today it rung clear.....they are gone.  The days of impromptu weekday adventures is no more.  Schedule and routine resides here now.  It's a strange feeling knowing that 5 days a week they will both be gone, home after four for the dinner and the homework routine.  It's beautiful and heartbreaking all at the same time.......every parent wants their child to grow and become who God designed them to be.....but the letting go hurts.

She was all smiles and full of spirit as she left this morning.......I know this adventure shall be grand and I can't wait.....a tear for sadness and two for joy!  Let it begin!
