A good portion of my life has been spent playing the piano for everyone else's diva moments. Now it's my turn. I invite you to accompany ME through my life's diva and, well, not so diva-like moments. It'll be entertaining. Promise.

First Day of 4th Grade!!

Sitting at her new desk for the first time.

She loves to bake!  She made this cake completely by herself.  I did nothing!!

First day of homework.  She couldn't wait to get started.  I hope that lasts through 12th grade.  :)

Precious thing learned how to crawl with her arms today!  She's been doing the army crawl for a while now.

And lest you think she never cracks a smile check out these two...the latter was about a month ago when she really go into splashing in the tub.


Aaron and I do school time while Rebekah takes her morning nap. 

He loves it and I love to see him learn.

First Rainfall

Have you ever been this excited to see rainclouds? 

I was.

Don't be fooled by the deceptively green, lush, gorgeous lawn.  My husband knows what he's doing.  Look at the lawn across the street for comparison's sake.  This is what most of the vacant yards around Corpus look like these days.

Here's why.

Please note the small print in yellow at the top of this one.  HELLO!  33 days IN A ROW! of 96 or higher!  And that doesn't include the heat index!!

Yeah, it has been one long, hot, dry summer.  And the dog days are still here and I imagine will be for a good portion, if not the whole month of September.

That's why this heavenly sound was so beautiful last week.  We all went out and celebrated.  It was like New Years.  :)
That's Aaron in the background telling Grandma on the phone that the rain came from Heavenly Father and Jesus.  What a lover.  :)
