Two peas in a pod. Every Thursday night we have a movie night due to the fact that the kids only have a four day school week. It's something we all look forward to each week. Somehow or another Chris and Scarlett always end up asleep about halfway through the movie. Great times....

Running isn't easy. Infact...running is the most disciplined exercise I personally have participated in. It takes determination and motivation, but most of all it's a sport you have to remain loyal to for it to ever get any easier. I'm proud of Halee and Austin for running cross country this season. There have been a lot of ups and downs...it's been a hot season but they have given it their best and that's all I can ask for as their mother. Good job, kiddos.

Yes, it's true. I've been subjected to slavery. Slavery to books, and studying and computers, and Teeth...that's right....TEETH. I'd love more than anything to cozy up by my warm fire and watch a good movie all alone in the dark, late at night, but atlas....I am a slave. Feel free to save me if u can.

There must have been something in the air this weekend. It was a beautiful time spent with family over Labor Day. It's a beautiful thing when you can spend time with your blood relatives, and also the ones they choose to have in their lives. My sister April has an amazing fiancé that just fits right into our circle. And my brother David is seeing a girl that we all have fallen in love with. It really is beautiful when everything just kind of "fits."
We also did a family talent night...actually it was a "family forces Melanie to sing with David night" but that's ok, because it is now a cherished memory...I sang with my sweet little brother...how many times will I have that opportunity? I'm telling you...life is too short to not make it beautiful. Take advantage of every lovely moment and savor it with all your heart.

Time to huddle in a ball and cry. The kids started school today. I know...I do this every year. I'm always super sad when they leave me. I'll get over it, but the first day is always a sad day. I'll be making their favorite chocolate chip cookies for an after school snack. Maybe the chocolate will lift my spirits. I love my sweet babies.
