Where has the time gone?

A Year Has Past

I can't believe how fast this last year has gone.  I think I might change the name of this blog to "Once a Year."  Obviously I am not the best blogger.  As things go with everyone, this year has brought a lot of changes.  Garrett is now as tall as I am (sadly, 1/2 an inch taller), he just finished his last year of Elementary School and in November, he was ordained to the office of a Deacon in the Melchezidek priesthood. JT and Ry-ry keep me on my toes as always.  Take our drive a few days ago as an example.

My boys are awesome.  As the summer continues, I'll keep you all informed.

4th of July 2010

If I was commenting that it had been a while since my last post, in my last post, well then I definitely have some repenting to do now.

Life has been crazy, but I'm sure you have guessed that by now.

Garrett is doing really well. In the fall, he'll be starting the 5th Grade. He'll turn twelve a few months after that and is almost as tall as I am now, but I guess that's really not saying much. He's going to be finishing up elementary school at the same school he started at seven years ago and I'm so glad. I'm nervous about him going into middle school next year, but at least I've got some time for that to sink in.

The two other boys are going to go back to the feeder school around the corner from our house. We were tired of the school board changing their minds every five seconds about how they were going to run things. JT will be in 4th grade next year and we finally figured out that if he follows Garrett to the school that he's going to, Justin won't have any of his friends going with him when he goes. We decided instead to pull he and Ryry out of the school they are attending now and move them back to the local school. That way they will have some time to make friends before the next change.

JT is probably my biggest worry now. He's so active and his mind is all over the place. If he isn't a candidate for the ADHD label, I don't know who is. He's a brilliant kid, but his mind is running on so many levels that to get him to stay on task is a big deal. I'm hoping to get him into a doctor soon. If he ends up having to go on medication, I rather have him adjusted to it before school starts. As a mom who has suffered from ADD most of my life, I can see his condition written all over his life.

Ryry is great. He's the sweetest guy and though he is moody lately. (He's milking his youngest status for all its worth). He'll be in 1st grade and I can't believe so much time has past.

Okay, now that I've ranted enough...I just thought I'd share a message with you that I found while reading the General Conference issue of the Ensign Magazine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. As many of you know, I've been a member of this wonderful church my whole life. I just wanted to share my testimony of the truthfulness of it. I want you to know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. That Joseph Smith, Jr. was a prophet of God and translated the Book of Mormon. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and that if you read it and pray about it, you will feel a wonderful confirmation that this book is from God.

As the Prophet Joseph Smith said, "The fundamental principles of our religion are the testimony of the Apostles and Prophets, concerning Jesus Christ, that He died, was buried, and rose again the third day, and ascended into heaven; and all other things which pertain to our religion are only appendages to it.

This gospel has changed my life. My family has benefited from being members of it and I couldn't imagine how I could have survived without it.

Thank you for reading.
