My new normal starting tomorrow morning. This may not seem very early to some of you, but I haven't had to wake up before 7am for several years, so this is an adjustment for me! But when your kid chooses to go to a new school with an hour long bus ride, sometimes you have to make sacrifices to make that happen!

This picture may look odd on its own, but it's actually a re-enactment picture from several years ago with this great group of kids at church camp!

The weather was so great this weekend, and the activities so fun for the girls and their youth friends.

I don't know many (almost) teenagers who send their moms texts like this. I feel so blessed!

The girls and I just finished watching Gilmore Girls tonight (me and Joelle have watched it separately before, but this was Malia's first time), and every time the theme song comes on, Malia gets up and does a little routine to it - the exact same one every time. It was always so much fun to watch, and I'm going to miss it!

As a crocheter, having the designer of a pattern that you made compliment your work is pretty darned awesome!
