Today I was reading one of my favorite blogs MckMama

I love this blog for many reasons: her honesty, her willingness to admit her faults, her beliefs, her photography, her sweet children, her stories, her writing abilities in general. I find myself laughing out loud while reading her blog.. crying while reading her blog.. admiring her strength.. questioning myself.. admiring her convictions..

Today she wrote on "Focus" and she reminded me of something very important. Something I often forget about, which shames me to admit. She reminded me that it can be life changing to focus only on the positives in life, the excellence of life, the joys, the accomplishments.. She reminded me to leave the negativity behind, don't pay too much attention to it.. Why?? Because it will eventually consume your every moment of every day.....and that is living in misery..

I recommend you read what she wrote.. It opened my eyes.. It made me reevaluate.. It made me recognize how at fault I am for not focusing more on the bright side..

Thank you MckMama

I know that I won't change over night, but being reminded is a start!! A very good start!!

3rd Anniversary

Bob and I celebrated our 3rd anniversary on May 26th. It's hard to believe how quickly 3 years has passed by. My sister came over on the 28th and watched the kiddos so that Bob and I could go out to dinner. He made reservations at 560 (the new Wolfgang Puck restaurant @ Reunion Tower). In a nutshell, it was beautiful.. The scenary, atmosphere, service and food.....all just beautiful!! Sadly I don't have a picture of us from that night, but I do have one that I love of the tower!!

I'm in 6th grade going on 7th grade...(hum the tune from Sound of Music)

So my baby girl "graduated" from 6th grade last week.. Which also means she graduated from elemnetary school and will be moving on to JUNIOR HIGH...

WHAT??? really??? are you kidding me?? When did this happen??

I know....I totally felt the same way ALL last week. I can't believe it! Yet I know it is happening right in front of me.....and to prove it, here are some pictures { I know you all want to see them}

Field Day 2009

Go Purple Panda's

This is always a fun time for the kids. Emma had been helping all week with the younger groups, so she was happy to finally be able to play all the games and have fun with her friends!

Cluster Track Meet

Emma got to participate in the Cluster Track Meet for her school this year. Every year the 4 elementary schools that will be going into Young Junior High hold a track meet for the 6th graders. Emma was in 4 competitions; 4x100m relay, distance race (800 meters), 4x400m relay and the soccer kick. The only one she didn't place in was the distance race, I think that was a little too much for her still. However she did get an idea on what to look forward to for junior high track meets. Here are some shots from the day:
