September Happenings!

Lizzie has waited, for what seems like forever, to be Queen of the day at school. This was the over-joyed look on her face when it finally happened...

We have a thumb sucker ladies and gentlemen!!
It's hard for me to keep it away from her-it's just so cute
 Pretty Penny!

 Little Family Photo shoot-the kids loved it! Especially Lizzie

Just more surviving

I upgraded my phone. I needed something to help me keep it all together. I'm not one of those that has to have the newest and greatest but upgrading my phone was the best decision ever. I looked for one that had an awesome organizer, calendar, to do list, grocery list-the momma needs!.... and what I got wasn't the newest and greatest because I can't stand the idea of holding $600+ dollars in my hand. But it was the cheaper version and still too high tech for me- I'm learning. I'm so glad to have it though, it has been a lifesaver already. It has everything I needed and more. It's amazing what's available at our fingertips these days.
It's sad.... the last couple of sentences I just wrote make me feel unbelievably old. In fact any time I mention "These Days", I feel like an old lady. Speaking of getting old, I'm getting myself some nice skin care products to help prevent wrinkles, sun spots, etc...wish me luck! Too bad they don't have some kind of natural product to prevent gray hairs..I'm sure I'll be needing that soon too.

I bought Lizzie a journal. She has been telling me stories on our rides home from school and every time, she brings a smile to my face. It's so sweet the things she feels are worth telling me. I also think it will help her learn to write, read and maybe even keep a journal regularly. The journal writing goal is one I'm still working on, many years after starting it, I still can't keep one consistently.

I ran for the first time a couple of weeks ago but my knees did not agree with it. I'm hopeful, it won't always be like that once I get back into exercising the way I want. I still have my cardio and volleyball though and that's really helped me feel better about getting physically active again.

We blessed Penny on Sunday. It was a beautiful blessing and I got a few pictures but I'll have to post them later when I figure out how to get them off my phone. Until then...
