It's Been a While
It's been a while since I posted. That's not because nothing has happened, because at our house There.Is.Always.Something!! For instance: Last week, early in the morning, Colton came running in the house to tell Nana that he shot his slingshot and broke the neighbor's car window. Excellent. That neighbor never liked us anyway. Nana told me that it WAS, indeed, a good shot! Colton is doing well in school this year, thanks to the BEST teacher in the world. For real. Kaydon had her last year and she is amazing. Colton and Kaydon are loving soccer and their new scout troops. Kaydon is liking fifth grade. He gets to be on the security detail, which is rad beyond words. They are both amazing at wearing their glasses, even though Colton's already broke in half. Rad. Luckily, I had a warranty and they were replaced for free. Colton is doing well in therapy and the new medications are helping SO much! Braxton has had a tough, tough adjustment to Junior High. I've said it before and I'll say it again... 6th graders do not belong in Junior High. He is doing better. He loves baseball and loves his team. He passed the Sacrament for the first time last Sunday and did awesome! Jackson prepared the Sacrament for the first time last week. He also did awesome. Jacks is really missing football this year. He will be back at it next year. Jackson gets his braces off in a month or so, fingers crossed! I decided to chop my hair off. It hasn't been good. I cried for hours, which is SO not like me. I have never cared that much about my hair. For some reason, it was like the world came to an end for me. School is going well for me. I begin my service hours tonight for my Studies of Disabilities class. I am really excited about that! I am really enjoying my classes this semester. I have been reading my Patriarchal blessing nightly. It's amazing to me how the meaning of it changes for me as I get older. I have gained such a testimony of the Priesthood and these blessings over the last week. There is NO doubt that Heavenly Father has a plan for ME and for YOU and that He really does have it all under control. I continue to workout three-four times a week for my physical "strong and fit" and I read the scriptures daily and watch Mormon messages at night for my spiritual "strong and fit." School keeps me on my toes for my mental "strong and fit." It's been a great goal for our family to strive for so far this school year.
