Cuttin' Church

What a weekend!! Courtney(Jonathan's Brother), Holly, Brigham, and Eliza came to visit! It was an absolute blast. We stayed up late, lounged around too long on Saturday to go on our hike. (Not to blame them) But the Boys decided that maybe we should skip out on church a bit early and maybe go on our family hike on Sunday so we would have Monday available to really play. Well, things were going as planned, we were just out of the second hour determining if we were really going to use our exit strategy when Jacob comes running (yes running in church) around the corner holding his hand bleeding horribly! The next thing I know my baby is in the boys bathroom so I can't help him or find out what happened!!! Of course he had two doctors taking care of him physically, but what about his emotional needs! What about my emotional needs! After watching me pace back and forth in front of the bathroom, my dear friend Jodi says, "Go in, I think it is safe." So I venture into the boys bathroom, and perform my motherly duty of taking care of my child. Stitches were needed and we were on our way home from church faster than our plans would have taken us!! We spend the day hanging out, playing games, watching church videos, eating good food, having a massive Nerf battle, and having a lot of fun. Needless to say, we were cuttin' church because one of us got cut at church!

It's About Time!

Well, it is about time..... about time for a lot of things. Time for soccer, for homework, for happiness, for making memories, and for recording them. Hence, the blog. I have read many a blogs, and have decided to begin recording the happy, the sad, the good, and the down right hilarious, all of which happen a whole lot when you have my kids.
It is about time for a lot of things.....hmm..... it really is. Time to step it up, to make the difference, to be a doer, not just a dreamer. To live the B's, live what I believe, to be the person who I want to be, the person I dream of being. No excuses, no time for that. To not hold back any more, for any past reasons or failures, no excuses, no grudges or fear. It is about time to live, in faith without fear. Now is where I now live. My goals and dreams are my guides, my faith, is my compass, but now, now where the rubber meets the road, is really where we live. It is where time is. It's about time.
