Day 16

Best Part of My Day: google hangouts with Rebekah and the family! I was laughing so hard!!  Then tonight Phil told us the most hilarious story about borrowing a friends ski pass in high school, getting caught and becoming a different friend to get out of getting caught. I laughed so hard today!!

Day 15

We had everyone home for dinner tonight.  It was really nice.  With the climbing schedule and track schedule conflict, I miss our every night dinner together.  I realize I had taken it for granted.  It was just the norm... dinner at 5:30pm together.  I think I'll work smarter at figuring out dinners for the next few months.  

Best Part of My Day: Our crazy goodnight ritual... I love our silly teens.

Day 14

Today was an up and down day. But dinner with everyone tonight was a high.  We cleaned up the kitchen so fast! Then read a little together.  Izy is a snuggly leach, Porter a silly leach and Tori just keeps trying to find her place.  I need to be better about recognizing when she is feeling lost and not apart.  Being the youngest is hard.  

Best Part of My Day: booking flights for an adventure to NYC with Samantha & Phil.

Day 13

Best Part of My Day... Delivering goodies to families on plates/bowl we wanted to get rid of but didn't want to throw away:)  The kids helped us clean out the kitchen yesterday.  They organized and washed every cupboard and shelf! We are donating, selling and throwing away lots of things! I love our clean, tidy, organized kitchen! Porter helped me make a small batch of carmel with the last bit of cream that needed to be used, and Izy and Tori made cookies.

Day 12

We woke up to this beautiful winter wonderland....

Best Part of My Day... Porter getting socked in the stomache by an overprotective middle aged woman then grabbed by the arm and drug off.  You see there is a sex offender at the park we help out at and this woman as well as another weren't letting him get within 10 feet of Izy and Tori.  Porter didn't realize he was a sex offender and started telling him the girls ages.  The women put a stop to that rather quickly and abruptly.  Porter looked at her as she was dragging him away and asked, "Why did you hit me?" She harshly whispered, "He's a sex offender! Don't give him that information!!"  We laughed so hard while Porter told us the story and again as he recounted it to his dad.  We fed hungry people today, replaced wholey boots with warm ones, warmed peoples hands and hearts.  Saturdays at the park are a family favorite.

Day 11

A snow storm rolled in this afternoon.  But not before I dropped Porter off to climb, met with FHS KC, helped Izy make dinner for a coach and his wife who just suffered a miscarriage and made a make shift dinner for us.  All in all a very complete day.

Day 10

We had family night with Ryan, Izy, Tori and I.  Porter competed in a local climbing comp. It was an enjoyable night home.

I'm reading a good book.  I like this...
