Today is a rainy day. Sunday afternoon and all is quiet. Phil took he boys to grandmas and I thought I would write a little bit. We have been so busy this week with soccer and football. My piano recital was Saturday. WE had it at the church. Classics and contemporary themes. The kids did great. They were so excited about all their songs also. Anyway,a lot of drama in our house with missing socks and missing stuff. Seems like I just can't keep track of all of it. School is almost our there are only a few weeks.So excited for summer and to not have a schedule. But then again it might be kind of crazy. Phil still doesn't have a job so we are trying to stick to budget. Im sure something will turn up for him. it's been so nice to have him home with us for a while. The boys love it that dad can pick them up from school and everything. I know he is getting anxious but I'm sure he will find something that is he right fit. 15 years ago I would have given him all these ideas of things to do but that doesn't really help and how would I feel if someone did that to me. I'm trying to be kind and not worry to much. We had some great talks in church today about being there for people and kindness. also about focusing on the Lord in our thoughts and actions. So true and a great reminder for me. I've been dealing with depression the last few months and Im trying to move outside myself and on.It would be nice if some of the goals I have I actually accomplished so I'm trying to see how I can do that. But no big things. I'd love to see some close friends so I might make that happen soon and I'm happy its getting warmer that helps me a lot to stay positive and focused on what is important. Anyway I better go we have some company coming next week and how fun is that. So we are getting ready for our Canadian friends to come visit and explore Colorado.I love it here and I hope we can stay forever!!!

I am trying to keep our family blog going.It's been a couple years since up have blogged.But this is as close e to a journal as I am getting these days.

 Home for a few weeks.

Sunday thoughts

Another week has gone by. Its 9pm and all is quiet. Evryone is asleep so I thought id write a little bit about things. Blake was sick today so Phil stayed home from church with him. Itook the boys.Landon passed the sacrament and Taylor and I played games during the meeting. lol Primary is going alright. I love my church calling so hopefully that dost change.

I got a new VT route today so a little sad about that but happy to meet some new girls. This year has been good. Its been a change going to the charter school but Landon is very happy and Taylor well we will see. I am going to help in their classroom a little bit so I am hoping we have a good year. It feels more like Bacon to me and I did tell Taylor he could go back to Grandview if he wanted .I dont really care too much but I like that they are at the same school. its nice for them especially Landon.

Im working aon my anger. I get really opset when Landon teases Taylor.I need to let it go but I just get so mad. I have decided to not say anything to him because I just cant stop talking and it frankly accomplishes nothing .,I feel like this year has been really stressful for me personally. I love him very much!
Taylor signed up for flag football at hte Edge and his coach is a football player from CSU so Taylor is in heaven! lol blake loves to watch also.
Im trying to workout everyday and starting to work on diet more. hopefully I can feel better and start to notice a difference soon. Ive been so depressed this week so trying to move on and see outside my tiny box to others things We have lots of blessings so I need to embrace them and be grateful!!!!

Fall is here

School started last week. I switched the kids to Windsor Charter Academy. It is a smaller school, with great instruction and a lot of help and opportunity.They learn spanish and Landon can be on every sports team for a few years. My friend Becky is the principal and we know a lot of people from church. Im glad we were able to switch and try something new, I'm hoping for a good year. People ist try and do their best raising kids. We are no different. Its been hard for Blake now that the boys are in school. But he has been busy with mom.We went to the lake park today and to the gym and played toys at home. I'm working on patience and no raising my voice.Sometimes it can be over whelming but it's ok. life is good.
