Our Week

At Lizzy’s school of amazing music, there are practice requirements.  They prove they have practiced by recording a set number of minutes per week.  Lizzy feels that she can’t submit the recording unless it is just her playing – no additional noises in the background, like siblings.  Let’s just say not all of her recordings get uploaded!


Picking up her new braces – Have I mentioned her love of selfies?  Have I mentioned how I exploit that love when we have waiting time?


My Sammi girl passed her driving test!!!!!!!!!!!  So very proud of her!!!

We celebrated at our favorite Mexican restaurant, El Rio Grande.  Yum!  My grandson is so, so cute!!!  Just love him so much!


For King and Country has a song called “Joy” out.  My Joy absolutely adores her name – so she absolutely adores this song!


New calling for me is RS Meeting Committee Member.  (Don’t laugh)  Organizing activities, putting them on, and cleaning up – that I can do.

This month’s activity was Paint N Sip.  The ladies followed an instructor who walked them through painting a Spring, Fall, or Winter tree.  There was Italian sodas to drink.  There was a high turn out! 

What I loved?  Helping?  Getting everyone set up, making sure everyone had what they needed, getting things coordinated – being a Mom, in other words.

I also loved watching Bec (so out of her element) and Sam (so IN her element) and watching the two of the them interact  Smile


Lizzy had All County auditions as well that day (kinda a busy running around day for me!)IMG_5040IMG_5039

Sammi has started watching Benny while Becca works.  This sweet guy is always so happy!


One thing President Nelson asked the sisters to do was to increase our temple attendance.  So right now, in this season of my life, with the kids at school, I have committed to attending the temple every Wednesday morning.  What a blessing to live so close to the temple!  I am so grateful for this beautiful place and the peace that can be found here!


My sweet Alex!


Kentucky School for the Blind had a dedication ceremony for their new sensory room.  I attended and got to tour the room Alex will probably utilize A LOT.  Afterwards I sneaked  over t the Elementary wing to check on the boys.  (If I don’t speak, Kai doesn’t know I’m there)  So his teacher showed me some of the things Kai has been working on!


This was one of the sayings on the wall of the sensory room, “I’m not giving you a hard time, I’m having a hard time.”  I thought that was great and took the picture of Alex from yesterday and added the words. 


Homecoming week for this one – they dressed up crazy all week.  Told her I’m not a fan of the black lip stick!


Great day outside!  Kai loves to swing!  Bella watering my mum.


Becca’s graduation – so very, very proud of her!  She is such an amazing student – and with everything she has been through the last two years – wow, babe!  So proud!!


Lizzy finally got to go to the peddlers mall.  She found two of these glass jars that she loved.  She thought they were perfect for chocolate milk!


Three of my beautiful girls!
