i woke today around 3:50.
after laying there long enough to review all the things i need to do today,
i gave in & silently slid out of bed.
it's a full week around here~
caroline now dances a couple nights
& tumbles on one.
emi & madi are cheering at three games this week
thankfully no competition is on the calender.
their homecoming dance is this weekend.
loads of photos to edit.
not one, but two cars are headed to the shop.
you get the picture
& your week is probably even more stacked!
i have a dozen or so posts in my drafts, most of which are from the summer that no one will want to read as we enter the beloved season of autumn.
but in an attempt to keep up with my journaling, i may need to subject blogger to a few flash backs. i apologize in advance.
i also got bit by that crazy 365 bug in january
which....i think most sane folks abandoned ship on long long ago.
so mixed in with some random august/september highlights,
i have some of those random shots to share too.
one of my favorite facebook moments was the following:
i'll take a blog recognition anyday!
favorite blog comment ever:
"Unlike usual, I don't actually have something really funny to say. I just want you to know this may be my favorite blog post ever. I loved being home. I loved seeing everyone and cheering on Madison and Emily. And especially laughing with all the Pauls. Thanks for making this weekend so amazing and being such a wonderful mom. I miss you already and cannot wait to be home again. I love you!"
pre or post "high cholesterol" status? you decide.
congrats on team captain, madi!
a pretty day of mail.
my favorite smoothie. blueberries, greek yogurt, spinach, flax seed, protein powder, & a little agave.
had my cholesterol checked (non-fasting).
it was high.
hoping it was off a little. even though i had just left a kickboxing class
i had also just enjoyed chickfila...fries.
obviously not eating enough of this.
sweet treats from sweet friends.
just realized how many of my photos are about food.
she picked out a new necklace.
& likes to pretend they're real glasses.
we love our jeanne oliver designs around here.
summer things soon to be traded out for fall.
my constant companion.
all creatures great & small.
a big honor.
one last swim.
found a highlighted verse in one of the bibles belonging to dan's father.
with the date he married his bride right beside.
the lord has done great things for us,
and we are filled with joy.
a rich legacy of love indeed.
hope your day is wonderful
that you got more sleep than i did!
