Okay, so life this summer has been busy.. what can I say? We have been busy getting ready for Scarlet Lime's one year anniversary, summer activities like family reunions, camping trips, scout camps, CHA, trips to Lagoon, a baptism and so much more.. I want to say it's going to settle down.. and I think it will because school starts NEXT WEEK! I can't believe it! I will have 5 kids in school this year.. only little nova left at home. Except he is not so little anymore. Seriously that kid has just grown so much over the summer, and of course he is everyone's favorite. The funny things is, he doesn't act spoiled.. even though he is, we were just saying the other day how he is actually pretty polite and always "asking" if he can have something versus just doing what he wants. He also responds well when you ask him to do something, like go get ready for bed, pick up toys.. etc. He just says.... "okay".. We just LOVE him!
Preston, who just turned 8 in June, got baptized this past weekend and it was such a great experience! He is such a sweet spirit with a tender heart. I am so proud of him and it was such a neat experience.. for everyone who attended. He is our 4th child.. and just a sweet peacemaker in our family.
So I hope once school starts again, life will slow down just a bit.... but I have to say (and hate to admit).. it's been great having my kids home.. they are fun and it's been fun to spend alot of time with them this summer.

So that's what's up with me.. oh and did i mention.. of course.. Most people have heard about The twilight book series.. well the LAST book in that saga.. came out Friday night.. Breaking Dawn.. I picked up a copy on Saturday and just finished it TONIGHT! what a great book.. kinda sad it's over.. but can't wait to read more of Stephanie Meyers book's. I read her book "the host" as well.. and wow.. I really really like it. I have heard some that don't but I did.
If you don't like aliens or vampires.. I have another book that my dear friend Jamie Soucey gave me for my birthday last year.. but I just got it this spring.. It's called Sky Burial. I wish I knew the authors name, but I lent the book to my Aunt. Holy cow.. if you love nonfiction.. and want to read a VERY moving story.. you have to read this book.. it's the most amazing book I have read in long time. Sky Burial.. I can't even begin to explain it.. but it is a life changing book and the story is so moving. So inspirational.. you won't believe it's true.. amazing.. book.. READ IT! LOL
I love reading.. it's my favorite hobby have decided.. love it.. wish I had more time for it..
