Cheers to me! that's okay right ?!

School has started up again....I am glad to be on a schedule again!  Ahhhhh nice and quiet this kids and no daycare kids.   I have needed this morning for a while.  Just a little time alone...I am so busy taking care of everyone else I litterally forget about myself.   My tenth grader hates school.....he never has liked it very much......what a few bad experiences with rotten teachers can do to a kid.   I never liked high school I really feel for heart breaks as a mom to see that kids are jerks and he would rather come home for lunch than stay at school with immature kids...  But then again, I am glad that he is strong enough to not be a part of the crap that goes on there.!!!   and if that means come home at lunch time... I am glad I am here.  at  home.  so he doesn't have to come home to an empty house.!   Today is my day though....I will be gone, solitude is needed, no talking to be done, go to any store I want to window shop, go to the eye doctor to take care of me!  I will come home this afternoon REFRESHED and ready to take care of my family again..

So cheers to me today!  and I will not feel guilty about it either!  Everyone around me will love me for it!  Who knows....I may even watch Dirty Dancing today....while doing laundry of course !

2010 Camping

Camping !  Camping is something we have done because it doesn't cost a lot of money!  Raising our kids this is what we did for fun!  We did do one Disneyland vacation !  Now that the kids are young adults getting all of us together at the same time is a little harder.   Luke could not make our camping trip this summer because he helps lead music at church.  So here is a video of will find the song he is leading at 9min. 3 sec.  Take it All is the name of it !  

Here are some photos of the camping trip with Isaac, Cassie and Jerid !
health food is not a priority camping....fried pop tarts!  Okay we did have some health food!
Jerid, Cassie & Isaac
the views were beautiful!
Jerid fishing.....not the most patient fisherman
Isaac and Cassie
this was their method of chopping wood!  ha !

Dan and I let the kids go fishing WITHOUT Wilson the little dog.  You see she loves to play fetch.  Well, that is not a good mix when you're fishing....every time you cast she thinks she is supposed to fetch it !! So Dan and I took the dogs a 4 mile hike !  WHEW !  There is not a lot of air up there!  Was sooooo fun though !

some music I get up and shake it ! Click the song you want to hear. Or press pause.
