Weekend Update....

Hello all,
I have been without access to blogs, facebook and several other "must see" sites for a week now and it's been torturous! Those stupid computer servers are always doing something silly! Let's see, update, update, update....

1. I have seen 2 movies so far this summer (it's a miracle-we very rarely see movies in the theater). Wolverine was awesome! LOVE Hugh Jackman! Star Trek was also great, set up for a whole new series and Spock got some lip action woo hoo! We're actually planning on seeing more movies in the next few weeks and I think it will end up by the end of the summer our family seeing more movies than we have in entire YEARS.

2. School is winding down and all the little children in my house are beyond happy. This year has been especially tough for the kiddos but they managed to get through it with okay grades (some I'm not happy about but I'll deal). Kiersten is excited because she can sit at home and write all day, Jared is excited simply because he won't have school.

3. We went to see the Kershaw County Show Choir's performance last night. The Choir has a few of the kids from our ward involved and it was a great concert! How those kids sing and dance is beyond me, I can't walk and chew gum at the same time without serious bodily harm to myself or others. Even the boys enjoyed it, which sort of surprised me. Jared was trying to remember all the words to that Officer Krupke song from West Side Story that they guys did last night this morning while he was eating his breakfast. He also told me, "mom, we need to go to more of these things". Hallelujah, pass the tissues, he is part of my genetic makeup! Great job Tony, Sharon, Jessica and Mari!

I think that's it, nothing much going on-that I can remember. Got to be moving on!

peace and love y'all!

Quick post on Mothers Day

Hello all,
Happy late Mother's Day to all you moms, sisters, crazy aunties, etc. wherever you may be! Last week I was so busy here at work I didn't get a chance to post about Mothers Day, and I had actually written a post about the seasons of motherhood, how wonderful the women all around us are and all sorts of other stuff. However, this is what I wanted to say...

The best Mother's Day gift wasn't actually on Mother's Day, although I did get hugs and kisses and love galore. Last night, Jared had taken his shower and was running around our house like a wild child while I was reading and Kiersten was in her room writing, Mike was out in the garden and all was right in our little corner of the world. Jared comes to me, holds my face in his hands and says, "mommy, do you know how much I love you?" I answered that I didn't. He says, "there are no words to tell you how much I love you, I can't tell you because I don't know the words." I told him, "son, I know exactly how you feel because as much as you love me, I love you even more and I don't have the words either." That was the best gift I could get.

Peace and love y'all!
