1. My family- Caylor works for the company that owned that airplane that went down last Friday in Moab, killing all 10 people aboard. He has flown on that exact plane with that pilot many many many times. It freaked me out a little... I am so grateful for him! Also I am so thankful for my little kids ( not so little anymore) they all seem to like school and are all really good kids. I have been talking to Rebekah, Ty's mom, quite a bit lately and my heart just aches for her... I have got to stop complaining about my kids because she would give anything to have to buy school clothes for him this school year... would do anything to study spelling words with him. I am happy my kids are healthy and happy!
2. My blog- I know this sounds so cliche', but I am so glad that I started a blog. I have been reading about Stephanie and Christian Nielson and their terrible plane crash and I was so touched to read her blog and although I don't know them... I am glad that I got to glimpse at their world. Those photos and memories are going to be priceless. I cried when I went to her blog. I hope I never have to rely on my blog as a way of remembrance as a stage of mourning, but I am glad I have jotted a few things about our lives that will keep memories that tend to fade.
3. My past three days of fun and freedom- I know it sounds so contradictory, after all the mushy sentimental things in the last two items listed, but I am so thankful for the fun- alone, grown-up time I have had over the last three days. Today is to get my house somewhat in order and do laundry day, but the good thing is... I've got 9 months to make all my dreams come true! ( no I am not pregnant...that would be a tragedy... the school year is 9 months)
4. School clothes shopping- Gives me an excuse to hit the stores! I love to shop and this is about one of two times when I can shop without the little buyers remorse that I usually get. My boys don't really care about anything other than shoes... and Meg loves all the clothes and hates shoes. It has been so fun and I am so glad Caylor is usually on board with this. It has been such a fun thing... any excuse to shop!
