I am having fun with Project Life this year! I am excited to take pictures especially because I have a new baby to document. He is so fun to have. He is amazing to watch grow up. I cannot believe how much I have forgotten just in the few years it has been since Brevan was a baby. It really is the little moments that bring me happiness each day. I am grateful to have a camera and the purpose to document these moments. I know looking back on these times wil bring me great joy and immense pleasure in the future. They will teach me to savor whatever it is that life brings me. I am praying that nothing horrible happens everyday. I feel enough of the horrible has happened to me and I would like to have a very long break from tragedy in my life. I want my family to be safe and happy enough. I want them to be able to learn yes but hopefully from things that do not bring heartbreak into their lives. It is a hard task master.  I am putting my faith in Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ to help us live with the Spirit so that we may learn and be safer.

I am hoping this year to keep caught up with my layouts every week. I am behind already but I will keep taking pictures and getting them scrapped. I will get caught up and ake more time to document and have fun scrapping our life!

Aliyah Playing Basketball

                                          Kip Aidan and Jakob enjoying Aliyah's game!
                                                      Lyndsey having fun with the ball.
                                          Aliyah is doing much better than I thought. I am so proud of her for trying something new. She is having so much fun playing. It is funny how girly she can be and yet so tough at times. I am having a ton of fun as well. I am not a fan of professional sports so I was not sure how I would enjoy watching her. As it happens, I am right there screaming right along with the other parents when she does well and yelling advice to the players! I know it is all in good fun so I make sure to cheer for everyone. It is hard to see her team get beaten every week, but it is good to see her play and learn life is not always about winning but doing. I hope she learns the value of hard work and practice. Those are the things that are truly important!
