Pool Fun

DH and Simster playing with Daddy's toy at our pool. Is that awesome or what? :)

On My Mind - Summer

So I am having a kind of hard time with some things right now. I will spare you the details, because I am sure I should just buck up and get over it. But since I can't sleep because of it, I thought, "Hey, I should blog something!" Aren't you proud of me? It's 3:30am right now so bear with me if I don't make sense :)

Summer is coming to an end. My kids aren't in school yet, but we will be starting preschool next week and I can't believe it's already time for backpacks and notebooks and (hopefully) cooler weather and my favorite part of fall - college football!

I won't bore you with a separate post for each of the things we did this summer, but if I had to make a summer-y (get it? hee hee I told you it is 3:30am!) it would be...
  • lots of swimming!
  • baby showers - thanks to all my great friends who had babies so we had an excuse to stay out 'till all hours of the night :)
  • the bubbs' first dance class (maybe I'll post some footage - all the girls were adorable!)
  • YW camp and other YW activities
  • my nephew's baptism
  • hanging out with family and friends
  • roadshow practices and performance for the Denton Jubilee
  • DH's band playing in the Jubilee (with a not-so-great appearance from me on the viola)
  • wonderful vacation really just to visit friends and family in UT and CO that we miss so much!
  • Oquirrh Mountain temple open house (would have been our temple if we were still in Utah)
  • working
  • DH working
  • entertaining three young children
  • oh, did I mention swimming?
  • oh, did I mention YW?
  • oh, did I mention DH working?
  • etc
We have enjoyed pretty much all of it and we are doing well. We have been very blessed as a family. We have all we need and many of our wants as well. We are healthy. We have support from a wonderful family and great friends. Even right now, when I'm struggling, I can't help but recognize how much we are truly blessed and acknowledge the hand of my Heavenly Father in all things.

And again, I leave you from within the shadows of the everlasting Texas heat :) May peace be with you, this day and always... (If you get that reference, I hope you are just floored by my extreme cleverness :)

Hope you enjoy a few summer pics and I'll post a little footage later!
