It's Almost October!!

I cannot believe how quickly this year has flown. My motto for the rest of the year goes like this:
"BOO BOO! GOBBLE GOBBLE! HO HO! HAPPY NEW YEAR!". I will blink and it will be 2008.

My twins have explosive diarrhea. We drove to Brown County yesterday for a fun hike. We forgot to pack extra clothing. So my sons got to hike without pants on. We had 2 blow outs before we even got to our destination. I'm sure people thought we were really weird, but we had fun nonetheless. Every time something crazy like this happens, I become a little less judgemental of others. Because you never know what's going on! After all, it could be worse!! ( A lot worse!)

My husband is a Broncos fans, so today the boys wore their Bronco jerseys to church. We got lots of razzing.

Enjoy your Sunday!

I am in a Mothers of Preschoolers group at my church. I have been in MOPS for 5 years now and I love it! This year is my first position on the leadership team. I am the hospitality assistant. Our first meeting is Wednesday, we have to set up for it on Tuesday, then on Thursday I leave (with 6 other MOPS moms) for Orlando, Florida for the MOPS convention! I am so excited and a little nervous. This will be a very busy week before I leave. And this will be the longest I've been away from my kids in 4 years. My 1st grader, Noah, I think will have the hardest time. He's had a very rough start to school this year. His separation anxiety has gotten very bad. But I am trusting in God to take care of him.

I started a new Bible study at church today. We are doing the Love and Respect study. I am looking forward to learning. I read 1/2 of the book a few years ago, but am really going to finish it this time. I am praying I learn how to be a better wife and in turn a better Christian!

No holes in Jeans

Today I started my day with an argument with my dear 17 year old daughter. She is a senior in high school. At the beginning of the year parents got dress code notes saying "There will be no holes in jeans permitted". Twice now my daughter has tried to get out of the house with holey jeans. Everytime she gets caught it's drama're ruining my life....thanks for ruining my day! She tries to make valid points like: the holes are below my knees, everyone does it, all the teachers like me, the principal loves me, etc....But I have stood my ground. Hopefully this is the last time. I went to a very conservative Christian high school (skirts below the knees, hose required, etc...) so this is a far cry from what I tolerated when I was 17! Or maybe I'm just getting paid back like my mom always said I would :) Anyways, my day got better after all that, thankfully.
The twins and I went to story time at the library and they were little angels. I was so proud of them! Hope you all have a great Thursday!
