Busy Weekend = Not Much Sleep

Whew! Fun, but glad it's over.

Friday started out with a darling dance recital featuring both my girls! What a rare treat. They are spread out enough age wise that they don't normally do too many things together at the same time. They had been to dance camp all week at church and at the end of dance camp was the recital.

The theme for dance camp was "Every Little Girl is a Princess". They had fun & performed again at two of the services on Sunday morning.

Saturday was pretty exciting as well. We had a cookout at the park with Harli's softball team. It sprinkled & rained a little bit, but the kids didn't mind. They had a good time.

After that, we went home to change clothes and off to Hutchinson! My brother-in-law is a race car driver and he travels a lot. We don't get to see him race very often, so when he's close enough, we try to go. He raced Friday night and Saturday night and did REALLY well. He won his heat race and the A feature Friday night and he won his heat race and got 2nd Saturday night. Very exciting! We are very proud of him!!! I didn't get any pictures, but wished I would have. The races didn't get over until after midnight and they had fireworks afterwards. Needless to say, after driving home and unloading we didn't get to bed until ALMOST 3:00 AM! Then, got up to go to church Sunday morning. NOT ENOUGH SLEEP!!!!

Today wasn't the best day & I know why! I normally start my day in prayer and today I didn't. I could tell a difference all day. The day just didn't go right. The girls and I slept in because we didn't get much sleep over the weekend. When we finally got up, I was already being beckoned for chocolate milk and from there on it didn't stop. I was having a hard time appreciating life and all the joys that come with it. I got on the computer and came across a blog that just made me sob and reminded me how precious life really is ( God sent me a reminder. Thank you Christina for sharing your precious little boy with all of us.

I love life and my precious family and I am thankful to God everyday for all the joy he brings. I can't wait to see my baby girl again and hold her. I'm ready to go now, but I want to take the rest of my family with me!
