Just Getting Started

Well I have been waiting for everything to be just right to start my blog. Then I realized my life is never "just right" so I should just dig in. So here goes. My little family includes myself, my husband Charlie and our two kids Chad (10) and Morgan (7). We have lived in our small town in Utah for almost 4 years. We have lived all over California before that.

I am waiting for summer to officially start. I think it may be coming soon! My family like to spend the summer outside soaking up the sun. That way we can manage to survive another winter! Pool time is just around the corner! YIPPEE! I am a stay at home mom and love it! I love that I can help in my kids classes. I love baking with them, playing with them and yes even refereeing them! I like to garden, read, scrapbook, sew and almost anything that is creative.

I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love that it makes life make sense. I love that I am a better mom, wife, friend, neighbor because of it.

My husband works at FedEx and has forever, or maybe like 16 years. He loves the basketball, Go Lakers! Football, Go LSU! Nascar, Go #24! He enjoys playing golf and spends most all his free time coaching little league football and baseball.

My son, Chad is just finishing 5th grade. He loves to play football, baseball and basketball. He is a cub scout and likes all the stuff he is learning there. Truth be told he loves that he can build fire, bridges, and any other crazy boy thing. Chad has many friends and almost always wants to be playing with them. He has a really funny sense of humor and enjoys making everyone laugh. Chad's best friend is his dog, Rocket. Rocket is an almost 5 year old yellow Labrador retriever. Rocket is not too happy with our new vegetable garden. He made sure we knew it was really his. Pictures to follow.

My daughter, Morgan is almost done with 1st grade. She has loved every minute of school. She is a great reader and really loves math and computers. She is a very happy little girl. She loves to dance and sing. She recently tried out and was selected to be on the dance company at her studio. They have a be nice to others policy that really fits Morgan to a tee! She is nice to everyone and genuinely takes pleasure in other peoples success. This year Morgan has been a daisy scout and next year she will be a Brownie! wanna buy some cookies? She has learned many important values this year through Daisy Scouts. She loves to play with her many friends!

Together our family likes to go for bike rides with the dogs. Hang out at the baseball fields. Read together before bed, even Charlie and I can not help but laugh at the antics of Junie B. Jones. Sit outside on the swing and just enjoy the weather! We like vacationing in California mostly to go the beach, but we say its to see family!
