She's back. Her first All Comers meet. She is scared, a little out of breath and very unsure of what to expect with her heart rate. We've been assured her heart functions properly, and she is cleared to run. But we're nervous. She's wearing a heart monitor that gives us real-time data. We're moving forward, walking in faith. It was great to see her back on the track.
A little date night with Dad. Wahoo's and Hula Girl Shaved Ice. Jenna has been to this place, and Heather was really wanting to go. Kelly said it's just like the great ice we had in Hawaii. I can't wait to go check it out!
The 2015 LDS Youth Theme video is out, and we're in full swing finding ways to Embark in service. The girls helped make dinner tonight for Jenna's teacher at church whose family has been down with some awful sickness for a couple of weeks. We hoped it would help them have a nice break, and it did. They were very appreciative.
Heather's science final included mapping a gene using an object that was familiar to her. Of course it was The Doctor's spaceship.
After our Christmas oops in getting desk that was way too small, I found this one on Craigslist for $30. It fit's nicely in Jenna's room, and she loves it. Love great finds like this.
We were able to take Jenna and her friends, Rosalyn and Hannah, to the ice rink today. Jenna has been thinking about ice skating since the last winter olympics. I haven't been able to figure out how to get her started with skates and ice time and a coach. So, I've procrastinated. I hope she doesn't lose her love for it.
Life goes on, and we're back to school and routines. I snapped this photo of the girls doing their homework in the living room. It's one of those shots that years later we'll look back at and remember how it was. Homework done wherever it's convenient, clutter lying about, Christmas decor still up. It's life, and I love it. The other thing I love about this time of year are the beautiful sunsets. I think wind and rain helps visibility. Just a guess. Whatever it is I'll take it. These beautiful skies fill me with joy.
I'm a wife and mother of two of the sweetest girls ever. In my former life, I was an elementary school teacher. I love learning and sharing experiences, and the chance to journal for posterity. I wish I knew as much about my ancestors as my posterity is going to know about me!
