Room to Breathe


Block IV is tough. I'm hoping I can make it through. My instructor talks in fast-forward, the material is serious stuff, and I'm missing my husband. That six week break was like gold to us. We talk about it like it was the "good ol days."

I took Tuesday off and Jord and Christen came over to hang with me.

We sat at my table and made hair accessories while our little ones caused mischief all about the house.

We ate actual food for lunch (no p&j, mac&cheese, or quesadillas), we laughed - talked about our marriages, our kids, school, callings, our plans for fall and just took some time to breathe.


Just as Jord was leaving at around 4pm the dark clouds rolled in and dumped a fantastic summer monsoon on us.


The girls giggled with delight as we jumped at the thunder, searched for rainbows, and finally all sat in a trance staring at the chaos out our windows.

Yes, I seem to like breathing.

The clip making day was the best and I'm totally impressed with our results. You are one crafty girl and I love to create stuff with you.
