hello!? remember me!??? it's been 25 days since my last post. that is totally unbelievable to me! where have the days gone? i can tell you they zipped right past us. we have a 10 year old, a seven year old, i'm teaching school, and we are living life in full throttle! i hear it gets "worse" (as in busier, not badder) before it gets better. i'd better hold on tight!

tomorrow is my sissy's birthday! i've seen these cute cakes around and wanted to give it a shot. my art room is quiet right now, it's also a horrible mess, but quiet. i miss it, and i feel out of sync. hopefully i can find some balance soon. let me rephrase that. i MUST find some balance soon!

have a wonderful weekend, friends!

soccer season is officially over

our soccer boys played hard all season long.

we watched them grow and come together as a team in ways that made their mommas proud!

uncle brendan came from minnesota to spend the weekend tournament with us. having him there was most definitely beatrice's most favorite part. :)

great days and time spent together.

the boys won the tournament!

go cyclones!
