So, we are down in Portland for our second trip of the year. We come down every July & October for business functions. Our October trips are for our function called F.E.D. (Free Enterprise Days). This year, the first night, had two main speakers Bill Britt & Rick Green. Bill is a "retired" person in our industry. Amazing lifestyle and it was great to hear him speak the truth of our status as country right now.  Rick Green of was our second speaker Friday night. He did an amazing talk on preserving our constitution. This country was founded on freedom...freedom of religion, free enterprise, freedom of speech, freedom... I am embarassed to admit how little I know of this country's history.

I love these weekends, I learn so much. It also motivates me to keep learning more and to always keep adding value to myself and everyone around me. I don't have any desire to be in college, but I do have a strong desire to study many subjects.

Pray for our country and for the children being raised in it right now!

God Bless!!!

I've been busy, but with what?

Geez, it's only been 8 months since I blogged last. Seems like yesterday! :)

Life is great! We have our ups & downs but God is always with so we know everything is under control.

Maddie started the 5th grade. She is doing well and is enjoying her Challenge class more this year. Angel is now in 4th grade and growing by leaps & bounds when it comes to math. Tristan is doing great in 1st grade. She loves her teacher & is slowly coming out of her shell at school. Travis is loving kindergarten. He is in the P.M. class and goes stir crazy waiting for his bus all day. Last but never least, Jackson is in his second year of preschool. He loves school but he says he misses his old bus driver. He went from a pretty lady, Ms. Shannon, last year to a man, Mr. G, this year. Who can blame him?

Chris & I working on building the foundation of our business. We love working together and the hours we choose. We have a great support network and some great new friends. We have amazing earth friendly, organic, affordable products. They really are top of the line. I love not being all about sales, sales, sales! Chris & I have both found a real passion in getting know new people and helping them see they are not living to their full potential. Our goal will always be to serve others so we may serve the Lord!

We recently started our membership at the "Y" and are just having a great time. We both need to lose a few pounds and get in better physical shape. Aside from that it really gives us time to focus on ourselves so we can be better parents for the kids. We really want to set good examples for all of them. I met a new friend(?), the elliptical, and we have rocky relationship so far, but we are working on it! :)

Chris & I are heading down to Portland this weekend for business and always look forward to that time. It is fun just being with each other and we get great training & association.

Crystal is asking for the kids back and we have some court dates over the next few months. At first I was stressed and upset about it. I would never think she is in the wrong for wanting her kids. It does show me she has the desire to take care of them. However, I don't think we are on the same page as far as what the kids need right now. We have complete confidence that God will put them where he wants them and we will find peace with whatever the judges decision ends up being.

I have some amazing women in my life that counsel me and give me direction with prayer & that is something that is so precious to me!

I am looking forward to what God has in store for us over the next year.

Tales of Danger...

The other day I was helping Jacks wash his hands. He said "I have an owie" and he showed me his finger. I said "Oh, how did you get that owie?" He answered me with..."When I was a baby, a tiger did that. We were wrestling."

So, in his short little life he has apparently wrestled a tiger, as a baby, and wrestled a snake at school, as a toddler. I don't know how he is going to survive his elementary years!

What in the world are we up to? :)

Yes, I know...long time no blog!

Well, Chris & I have been busy with our new business. We are involved in an e-commerce project. Things are going Great!!! We love what we are doing and the people we are spending our time with!

Chris & I are able to spend almost every single day together. I love it!

The kids are doing great...

Maddie is cruising along in 4th grade, going to challenge, has artwork in the Reflections program headed for State judging (woohoo), and is becoming a young lady too quickly! :(

Angel is doing excellent in 3rd grade, is kicking some math bootie, and is enjoying geography club.

Tristan is loving full day kindergarten despite, her struggles with selective mutism. She has some great friendships at school and is a feisty little lady!

Travis is back at the same Head Start class this year and couldn't be happier with it. He is our little jumping bean...never sitting still or quiet!

Jacks is in Head Start too! He is in the class next door to Travis, so thankfully they can have their own space for a few hours a day. I think he is secretly training to be the youngest UFC Champ because he some scary moves already perfected!
