Not a good start

Both of the kids started school on Thursday. Bryson is now in 2nd grade and Taylor in 7th. First day was a great success for both of them. They both had soccer practice after school in the hot weather and all was good until we were home sitting down to eat dinner. Bryson complained of a bad headache and the next minute we knew he was hugging the toilet bowl. The sickness continued Friday and he was not happy to miss the 2nd day of school. Not sure what caused the sickness, but he is back to his normal self. Oh that reminds me, have to go and write a absent letter for school.

Last month,while at Birch Bay Waterslides, Harry noticed a very dark small mole on Taylor's back. Last Wednesday we headed into the dermatologist to have it checked. The Dr took the mole off right away. Yesterday the Dr called with results. The test show that the mole was not normal and her cells also are affected. Simple Story is that this small dark spot turned out to be CANCER! Boy I hate that word..... Anyway she is scheduled for another surgery in a couple of weeks to make sure that it didn't spread. Please get yourself checked regularly! Good Eyes Mr Edwards on spotting that early.

An Example of the spot on Taylor's back. However hers was a lot darker and smaller.



Taylor was very eager to get her braces. She got them on August 4th(Harrys birthday) and will have them on for about 2 1/2 -3 years. If you would have asked her about her braces the first two days of having them on, she would of given you a look that would of killed you!

I am going to paint the hallway. However as you can see the picture there is no actual stopping point for the hallway. This wall continues into the living room. My question is do I paint the hall and that wall the same color or do I stop at some point and paint the living room wall a different color? If choosing two different colors where would you stop?

Saturday Morning adventure!

Bryson and I headed out to the Navy base to see the 100th Aviation Centennial. Just a couple of pictures to capture our time together!


Harry just text me after he Ride in Tour De Whatcom. He completed the 105 mile ride in 5 hours and 40 minutes riding time, 6 hours and 15 minutes with breaks. He has been training hard for this ride the last month. I am so Proud of him!

Camping with my boys!

Thursday we went camping at Rocky Point. It was such a beauty of a day and warm. The wonderful part that we drove 5 minutes to get there. The bad part is that after 5pm the restrooms are locked. Still we had a great time!

Cascade Park

Today I got to go to Young Womens camp and play games with the girls there. I show up at 2.45pm thinking great I have 15 minutes to spare. As Sister Murray finishes her class, she acknowledges me and ask am I here for the next two days. No I am here as a member of the RS presidency to play games with the girls at 3pm. Oh that started at 2pm! OH DARN!!!! Nevertheless Taylor was excited to see me and I spent some time with them.

Young Women

June 7th Taylor turned 12. She was super happy to finally go to Young Womens. Today she got to go to Girls Camp. She was happy to go but last night had a hard time falling asleep. She finally came in and talked with her dad, that she was going to miss us so much. Her dad assured her that all will be well and she will have a super time! Dropping her off this morning as 6.30am, she was ready to go. I sure do miss her even if its for just a few days

My Baby turns 7

He brings so much joy,love and laughter to our lives. Happy Birthday Buddy!

Harrys 40th Surprise Birthday Party

July 23rd I threw a Surprise Birthday Party for my love! He turns the big 40 on August 4th. With our busy schedule this was the only Saturday that he was not working in the next couple of weeks.(he only gets a Saturday and Sunday off every 6 weeks) Through out the day, the kids helped clean the house and got stuff ready that we could without him suspecting anything. We got him out of the house at 4.30pm, we decorated the house, got the food ready. He was completely surprised when walking in the house at 6.20. We had great food,great company and overall a great success surprise party!

No Particular Order

It's been way too long since I blogged, so my thought is I will start again tonight. However there will be no particular order of events when I blog! I figure this way it will get done!
