The school year has ended which is always bittersweet for me. I love my students but I love my summers off too. We have experienced quite a bit since I last wrote. My dad had open heart surgery in April which he is recovering nicely from. He is currently continuing the post surgery rehab. I was able to fly to South Carolina to be with my mom and sisters while we waited for the surgery to be completed. My nephew, Kendall graduated from high school which I was thankful to be able to attend the graduation party with family a week later. We did miss having Debbie, our youngest sister, with us though. My sister, Sandy is a very gifted artist and while at her house I attended one of her art classes. I had a great time and actually painted something that wasn't horrible. Ha!! We then went to Orlando to visit Chandler where he is currently on a 10 week mission type project. We were thrilled to spend time with him and see his girlfriend Cathleen as well. Of course you can't visit Orlando without going to a few Disney themed parks, so that we did. We also went to Universal Studios which was a great time as well. Since then we have been spending hours in the pool with friends to avoid the heat and of course get to hang out and catch up with our friends.

I haven't blogged in so long that I am pretty sure no one is reading this is purely a post for me to document the sweetest thing my hubby did for me. I was at work one day and received an email from him with the words to a song and a youtube attached.
It was one of the sweetest things and it was all just to say He loved me. There was no special anniversary or birthday just a sweet moment.
Love you honey,

Cameron turned 9 yesterday!!! So thankful that God blessed us with this little Camarino. He brings so much joy and humor(literally) to our family. He chose to eat at Genghis Grill for his birthday dinner. Fun times for sure.
It is starting to feel like fall around here and I was in the mood to start some fall decorating.. started with the back porch. The kids roasted marshmallows and now we are enjoying watching some college football. Alabama vs Ole Miss.

Well my word for the New Year was Present. I wanted to be present in the moment, in every moment rather than looking back and saying, Wow! I don't remember the details of that situation or memory. Well it is September and I have to say I did great for a while but lately I have failed miserably. Rather than being Present I have just Existed. I have had a few blows with the death of my Mother-in-Love and the heart attack and surgery of my Father. There have also been a few issues in my life but most of which I have brought on or allowed because I completly lost focus for a bit, my focus was on me and how I felt and how I was going to fix it and how I was treated unfairly( way to many I's in that last sentence and that was a lot of the problem). Trying to be everything to everyone and be everywhere is completely exhausting and overwhelming it was so easy to slip back to just existing from event to event. Thankfully back on track of trying to be Present with the Lord's help of course!!
Have a blessed Tuesday!!

Had a pretty busy week with soccer. Carson's team won their tournament last weekend, Cameron's team won their tournament this weekend and Chandler's team won last night 5-0. If I sit and think about our crazy schedules I have know idea how we do practices, games, school, homework, projects, church, jobs, laundry, house cleaning.. the list goes on but somehow we make it work and not perfectly for sure but it is our life and we do our best. Our boys know we love them and the Lord and really after that nothing else matters... oh except sleep..haha
Have a wonderful week!!
