Desert or the beach? At this point, either will make me happy! I am so sick of waking up to gray mornings and freezing temps. I'm ready for sun and flips flops and lemonade. Does anyone know if the groundhog saw his shadow? I can't take anymore SNOW!!!
Carter is our newest Student of the Week! He was so excited when he found out. He had to call his dad and our friend Kim as soon as we got home. He says he will keep his certificate forever. He's a smart kid and we're so proud of him. He got to have ice cream last night for his celebration.
I finally had a chance to post our Disneyland pictures. We went with my parents and grandma and we had so much fun! We spent 3 days in the park and partied hard! The boys got to do a Jedi training, they even got to fight Darth Vader and Darth Mal. Mckenzie got to meet Tinker Bell and some of the Disney princesses. Here are some of our pics:
When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say: "I used up everything you gave me." ~Erma Bombeck
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. -Nelson Mandela
"We cannot live for ourselves alone. Our lives are connected by a thousand invisible threads, and along these sympathetic fibers, our actions run as causes and return to us as results." – Herman Melville
Education is the great engine of personal development. It is through education that the daughter of a peasant can become a doctor, that a son of a mine worker can become the head of the mine, that the child of farm workers can become the president of a great nation. It is what we make out of what we have, not what we are given, that separates one person from another. -Nelson Mandela
I am a single mom of six precious children! They are six little pieces of my heart, somehow walking independently of my body. My goal these next few years is to make sure they are going to be happy, healthy and successful.
Here's to new beginnings! Stay tuned!
