The truth as I know it:

We witness a miracle every time a child enters into life. But those who make their journey home across time & miles, growing within the hearts of those who wait to love them, are carried on the wings of destiny and placed among us by God's very own hands. ~~~ Kristi Larson

Why haven't I posted?

Well, here's the proof that I haven't had time....

This month we have:

1.  Hosted a 2nd grade party

2. Cheered on my brother-in-law in the Memphis in May Triathlon

3.  Hosted the seasons soccer trophy ceremony

4.  Raised Painted Lady caterpillars to butterflies and sent them out into the world to do their thing.


5.  Spent time at my dad's. (And my mom's too, but I don't have any pictures of  that for some reason.)

6.  Successfully gotten our rental property leased after the last tenants gave notice that they are moving.

7.  Taken post-flood photos of our town

8.  Put together a slide show of our life together for my husband for our anniversary. (This is us at Yosemite in 1997.)

9.  Celebrated our anniversary.  We've put alot of living into the last 13 years!  I can honestly say that I love my husband more and better today than I did the day I married him. (By the way, we didn't color coordinate our outfit, I just now noticed that we were matching.:)

10.  Created some gnarly mohawks! :)

Of course, I should not neglect to tell you that we have also spent a fair amount of time at the pool between stroke and turn clinics, swim practice, meets, and just regular old pool days.  We've been on the boat every chance we get and we've been trying to enjoy the summer, even though it's 100 degrees with a heat index of 110 and the humidity is about 80%.  I'm trying to train for a 10k in September, but it's nearly impossible in this heat because if you aren't running by 6:30 you can just about guarantee you'll die of a heat stroke.  And I hurt my knee, which I'm trying to pretend is not a result of being 40.  Grrrrr!

So, there you have it, our very average, but busy, month.  Love y'all!

Oh, is that ALL?? What, you could squeeze in finding a cure for all cancers and solving world hunger?

Way to go on the 10K! Are you doing the Peachtree?

Wow! I am seriously impressed with all the parties you've hosted - didn't you say before that you were no martha stewart?

Good for you for training for the run. I WISH I had weather like that!

Thanks for the update

Wonderful job on the 10K! Proud of you girl. Isn't summer crazy??? I thought the school year was busy and June about killed me.

We had to cancel the beach trip...maybe another year. I am sad that we will not get to meet up. Maybe another time? I hope so.
