Last weekend Forrest was bored and since we have been talking about adding an addition to our house (sunroom/scrapbook room)Forrest was antsy to begin taking down the back roof-decking and fence. With George supervising, he handed Forrest a sledgehammer and the demolition began. Forrest had a great time beating this wood down! It took him about 20 minutes to complete the project. When Forrest gets in a mood to help, we get out of his way! It's not often he initiates work, but we sure appreciate it when he does.
The kids are doing well in school. Forrest had soccer tryouts last month and is conditioning after school a couple of days a week. He loves physical exercise and always has. Sadie is really doing well in band. She is third chair with her flute out of eleven. They have challenges every Friday to advance. I can't believe how fast this school year is moving. Next week begins our fall break for a week. What will we do?
This past month, I have been involved in an on-line scrapbooking class at feelingscrappy.com. The class began Sept. 2 and ends today. The theme is "Sew Scrappy" with emphasis on using stitching/fabrics on scrapbooking pages. I feel I have definately got my moneys worth as I have participated in almost every challenge. Now that the class is over, I can put my attention back on the house! lol
A couple of weeks ago, George was called to be the YM President in our ward. I was called to be the YW President two months ago. This will be fun working together! I am very excited that George is Forrest's leader. Forrest needs the influence of his father more than ever now that he is a teenager. And next summer, Sadie will move up to YW. If you ask her, she is ready to move up now! Soon, we will make Wednesday night a family affair as we all attend mutual together. Also, this month Forrest earned his Deacon's Duty to God certificate and Sadie earned her Primary Faith in God award. I am very proud of my children!
I'm a brand new stay-at-home mom after almost nine years of teaching elementary physical education. I am married to a fantastic husband of fifteen years who loves me for who I am and is very supportive in all that I do, especially scrapbooking! We have a an almost 16 year old son who loves sports and is your typcial teenager in every fashion, shape and form. Our 13 year old daughter is the musician in the family and cannot wait to be a teenager! Our family wouldn't be complete without our weiner dog and standard poodle, Benny & Carhartt. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful family and am extremely happy where I am in my life.
