Catching up Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3

Well I have committed to a P365 with some of my scrapbooking friends.  What that means is that I will take a picture a day for the next year and post on this blog.  I hope this delayed posting of Day 1 and 2 is no indication of how this is going to go.

So here we go!

Day 1
Spent the first day of the year at Kenzie's first volleyball tournament.

Day 2
Day 2 of the volleyball tournament.  #16, that's my girl!

Day 3
This is our girl Bella.  She was the only one available for the photo op when
I realized I was going to miss another day if I didn't take a picture of something quick.

Awwwwww, the sweetness of quiet.

It is truly unusual for me to have time alone in our house, but tonight is one of those unusual nights.  So what has kept us busy this last week...

Kenzie finished up her driver's education course this week, so all that's left is the wait until the 15th birthday and she can get her learners permit and begin driving.  She's pretty excited about being the first of her friends to be able to do this with having an early in the school year birthday.  Aside from that, her week was also busy with shopping and packing for the Woodcreek JH Mission trip to Wyoming.  We dropped her off at the church early this morning with prayers and hugs and cheerful goodbyes.  She's been so looking forward to this trip and I'm sure that she and the rest of the kids will be blessed by this experience.

Kaitlyn, Lindsey, Scott and myself all participated in the Taylor P. Storch volleyball tournament, benefiting Taylors Gift Foundation,  this weekend too.  The girls played with two friends from school, Shelby and Ryann and Scott and I played with our good friends and neighbors, Brett and Shawn.  The girls were a bit challenged by the game format, finding that there was a lot of area to cover for just four of them, but all in all, I think they had a good time.  Our team wasn't quite so successful either, but as my friend Shawn posted, "It was mucho funno."

A for Garrett, although he wasn't too excited about hanging out at the volleyball tournament all day at the start, I think he ended up having a pretty good time hanging out with his buddy Josh.  They found a group of boys to hang out with and figured out some kind of game to play on the open courts.  In the end, no complaints.

The Start of Something

After quite some contemplating, I'm taking the plunge.  I love the idea of doing a blog, but my dilemma has been, do I have the time to keep up with a blog.  So here goes.  I'm in the process of trying to figure out how to personalize this blog page and then I have committed to blogging something at least once a week.  That should be doable, right?  Gosh with as much as we have going on with a teenager and 3 pre-teens in the house, I should have something to write at least once a week.  And so the adventure begins.....
