Wha? Who? Where? Help me!

I've lost all control of my life! I have no idea what is up and what is down. 

I am pretty lucky to even remember my name at this point. 

Trying to coexist with an ex, being a single mom, trying to keep my kids sane without messing them up to badly, and now dealing with the fact that my father has cancer. 

A very wise person keeps reminding me that I never really had control of my life. Nobody does. It's kind of up in the air and you can only help guide it so much. 

Last week was my 4th Relay for Life. Unfortunately since Im running on only 1/4 of a brain, I wasn't as in to it this year as years past. This year was also extra difficult for me as I'm now watching my father battle cancer. 

My dad was too weak to be at Relay this year so the kiddos sent him a picture reminding him that we are always in his corner. 

Our friends also came by after losing their mom to breast cancer on this past Mother's Day. We love them and it breaks my heart. These are 6 of their 8 children. 

Even though our Team has dwindled from what it used to be, we have also gained some amazing people along the way. Love each and every one of these girls!!!! 

Relay has become such a part of my kids lives. The look forward to it every year. 

I hope that next year my heart and head will be back in it 100%. 

Helloooooo Summer

I love summer!!! 

Don't get me wrong, I'll totally complain when it's 110 here and I'm not at the river.... But, I need sunshine... Like all the time! 

So it seems like an early summer for us here and the kiddos and I have been taking full advantage of it! 

(Yes my finger is in the way)

It's a good life ❤

My little man

Today Beaks' class had a Mother's Day breakfast for us Mamas. 

They sang two songs and handed out gifts. 

I cannot explain how much that little man melts my heart!!!! 

Happy Mother's Day weekend to all you Mamas!!!!

Since I've missed a year of blogging.... 

So, here is a post of pics from my brother's wedding in Maui this past November.

A New Start

May 8, 2013

So it's been just short of a year since I blogged at all. So much has changed in my life since then. I am in the process of a divorce, the kids and I moved, I met an amazing person, and my dad was diagnosed with Mesothelioma.

So here I go, back to writing... Maybe it's an outlet for me. Maybe a therapy of sorts.

Whatever it is, I'm back.

Here is to new beginnings!!!
