This week has been so busy. How can a person who only works twenty hours a week be so busy? Let's see...Bible study, MOMS group, dentist appts, soccer practice, and volunteering in a kindergarten classroom. I swear, I don't know what I did before kids. No wonder I am so tired all the time, I must have had a lot more time to sleep before these little ones. No matter how busy I am, they are very worth it. On Thursday Kendall went to my friends house to play with her little girl while I volunteered in Kellens classroom. She loved it, we like to talk about what she did at Rylee's house!! Well, only four hours of work tomorrow, maybe I can get some laundry and other housework done because my parents are coming to visit at the end of the week. For those of you that don't know, my parents moved away to the Tri-Cities (in eastern Washington) in March and come at least once a month. This week they are staying with us. We love the quality time when they are here and the kids love it when Grandma Trish and Pa have a "sleep over" with us. We should have a good time. Hope everyone else has a great week!!

My weekend away...

Was AWESOME!! I guess, I can't call it a weekend away, but more of just a night away. Anyway, it was great. We listened to a great bunch of inspirational speakers, with some great tools to take away. There was laughter and tears. Most of my tears were for my friend Jill. She is in the hospital with cancer, and I can not get her off of my mind. I am praying and praying for her. She has a seven year old and a one year old. So if you are the praying type, please include her in yours. Today I am going to a Mary Kay party at my best friend, Stephanie's. We haven't seen each other for about two months, so I am really excited. Oh and if you need a Mary Kay consultant she is just starting up, so I highly recommend her!! Thank you for reading my blog, and thanks for all the feedback I got, I really appreciate it. It feels really nice to come and have an outlet, but I am also glad that people are actually reading it. I love you all.

So, this week we went to the pumpkin patch with Kellens classroom. It was the first time taking Kendall, she had a great time. She really liked the animals. Kellen really suprised me by participating in all the activities. If you don't know Kellen that well, he can be a bit apprehensive in certain situations. I was really happy that he really got in there and got his feet wet (well, at least muddy!!). I am going to downtown Portland this weekend with friends from my MOMS group. We are attending the Women of Faith conference at the Rose Garden. I am so excited to have a night away. It should be a great weekend of fun and fellowship. For anyone looking for a great deal on anything, on Sunday the 14th you can get an extra 20% off almost everything at JcPenney. If you are curious how, just ask me. I am hoping to keep up on this blog, all the menial things in our life for anyone interested. If nothing else, and outlet for me to come and get things of my chest. So, read if you want, if not, that is ok too because it is as much for me as my friends and family members.
