The Next Thing....

I was talking to my good friend Shell the other day and the conversation turned to how I feel like I'm always living for the next thing, she was sharing her own struggles with this same issue. She said something that really hit me....."one day we are gonna miss where life is right now." This chat with my friend has changed me, I want to live for today. Thank you my friend.
A must read.... You're Gonna Miss This...



August 12th my little Skyler turned 8 years old...

Skyler & Payton... they fight like cats and dogs but in the end they would be lost without each other. I'm so glad we have two children.

He wanted an electric scooter or to skydive more than anything... well he has 10 more years to wait on the skydive;)

Sky said that this was his best birthday he ever had in his life!! :0) It was a good day.

Looks like you gave him a very special day...

Awe, thanks for the post, Tracy.

And these pictures of Sky are awesome. I can't believe how old he is. That's not right! I've GOT to take more pictures of my kids! My family has really been getting on me lately because they are seeing blog pics of everyone else, but not my kids. I've got to change that!
