Little moments.

So it came acrossed my mind that I am not blogging the way I wanted to when I began. I am only doing the BIG moments in our lives.. or the more obvious events, which is great BUT the most important part of blogging is to have the little moments of my children that will be lost in months. Those touching little times that we should try to hold onto but we get too busy and frantic with our everyday lives. So I am hoping this is my turning point. Yes I like having followers and readers and I don't want to lose you but I also want to remember the whole point of my blog to begin with (and a great way to vent right?).



This is the kid of the week in our home.. he is special in so many ways. Besides the fact that he is smart, outgoing, sweet, sensitive, amazing karate master, and the best big brother... he is now in big boy school. I'm totally mixed on it. I'm excited for him though. I walked him through the halls the very 1st day and it brought back SO many memories. Don't all schools smell the same? I remember having a lot of my first moments in school.. when your friends hurt your feelings at recess and you go in crying.. to wanting to have your teacher pick you first while you are raising your hand as high as you can.... and then thinking this is just the beginning for him. So many positive and negatives that go on from here on out. I worry about his feelings especially because he is extra sensitive. I wish we as parents could shield him from all bullies or friends that don't include him, things of that nature. But instead I do what every parent does and LET GO. It's a hard concept and I think I will have to remind myself constantly - it's out of my hands. For so long he has relied on me for everything and now he is becoming independent enough to do it himself. That alone is a struggle for me but I am excited to watch him grow up and succeed - I am very proud of him already, and he is only 5 years young. This is obviously the 1st day of of kindergarten for my oldest and first child. Isaiah is the child that wakes up every morning with a big smile and is already for the day.. before I even wake up .. he makes his bed and cleans his room (mandatory before tv watching). London on the other hand, not so much!


Tonight I was cleaning the bathroom while listening to Isaiah talk to London.. If any of you know Isaiah, he is extremely scared and sensitive to the dark and night time. So this story is that much better knowing that.. London decided that SHE would be scared and not want to go to bed. So Isaiah was talking babyish to her and saying .. Londs, you know how you love babies? All you need to do is dream about being a mommy to LOTS of giggling babies then all that bad nightmares go away. Just think of things you like and it will help (this is exactly what I told him 5 minutes earlier). He also said, I know what it's like to be scared but I am not anymore.. because I just looked outside where I thought their were monsters and there was nothing there! So we will make sure you are safe London.. cause we love you.
Oh it definitely put a big smile on my face. How grateful I am for their relationship and how sweet Isaiah is to her. After a really long day and not having any patience left in my body.. that helped my whole night just to hear that small little conversation.

dig·ni·ty



Elin Nordegren.. wow. I obviously only know her through the media and it's hard to believe even a tiny percent of it however, the way she has handled herself through such an excruciating time in her life is beyond my imagination. Honestly, she is such a role model in my eyes. I have been through similar problems (not anywhere near the extent she has) and I can't put myself in her shoes even for a second. When I read some of her interview with People, I was in disbelief at her outlook. She has chosen to stay out of the media through all the slams and heartache she has heard about herself, even if it was to give herself a little relief from what her heart was facing. I am sure she heard story after story of Tiger's transgressions and still to this day she hasn't said anything negative about her ex husband, besides just the facts. That takes a strong woman. And through all of this what baffles me the most is she is one of the most wealthy people in the world and as the nightmare has entered her life, she has been taking night classes and is in pursuit of her a psychology degree. She is the definition of dignity. She is one of the most beautiful women in the world, and in my eyes, just as beautiful on the inside. Way to handle yourself .. if she has gotten through this, she can get through anything! I am grateful there are women like this in the world, so that when us women have been to the most low place by being cheated on, we can watch women like Elin and remind ourselves that if she can do it, so can we.

Red, white, blue.

So yes I know I am very late on posting- but like I said.. I was going to catch up somehow! This is part 1 of our 4th of July celebration. It started out with our annual parade at Centerville and this year was extra special because our Buzzy was actually IN the parade this time. We are so grateful for his new karate academy that he has joined, the Bobby Lawrence Karate in Centerville (that will be a whole new post). He was our local celebrity for the day.. we had people calling our cell phones asking us if Isaiah was in the parade because they thought he threw them candy:)
Then after that first event.. later in the evening we went up to Davis High for the program (my sisters) and then the amazing fireworks! Perfect way to end the night! Oh and don't forget to look how beautiful the view was when my sisters were singing.. it was a breath taker that's for sure.
