Summer, plus distractions seems to equal ZERO blogging. Well I'm back! Here's the update. Sasha started Kindergarten and she loves it! She goes to half day kindergarten and the schedule sort of sucks. I personally didn't love school when I was a kid and I feel bad that Sasha has to go to school all day, everyday for the next 12 years, so I'm FINE with half day school for now. If you ever wonder why I didn't go on to Med school, my hatred of "school prison" is the reason. I like to do what I please most of the time. Of course I keep this information quite when speaking to Sasha...
This is her picture from the first day of school. She got to walk to school with cousin Anabel and her hairdo took a little long, so we didn't get the classic front porch shot. I will absolutely pat myself on the back for her ADORABLE dress which I made specifically for this grand occasion. She looked top notch! Here's a better shot of this adorable T-shirt dress. I got this gorgeous yellow trim from my grammy Bonnie's basement, so I bet it is totally from the 60's or 70's. She gave me a bag FULL of laces and trims and to me this is such a treasure. I can't get enough of ric rac, lace and ribbon! I get a bit to excited about that stuff.
So she's in school now and I guess this means my dreaded enemy winter is coming. I know that I live in Utah and it snows here, but now that I realize that the sun is my best friend, I just get so sad about Mr. Sun hiding behind the clouds for months. It's a bad situation for sure. We are trying to make the best of it though.....we bought a snowmobile and we're still looking for one more. Hopefully, this will make it a little better. Buying the boat last year, changed my life forever. I found out that we are very much "Boat people". We went to Pineview Dam nearly every single weekend and it turned out to be some serious quality family time......not to mention major Tan Time. I loved every second of it. Though it took months for her to warm up to it, Lyla finally found her love for walking on sand. I can only imagine how much more fun she has now that she has recovered from sand paraplegia. She threw all her toys off of the blanket and I just told her SHE had to walk off of the blanket to get them herself. She struggled for sometime with this sad reality, but ultimately she did it and life has been great ever since.
I love these girls SO MUCH!!!! I feel like I hit the kid jackpot. They are so cute and so funny. No lack of personality with these two!
There is one other reason that I have not updated this blog in so long. We have discovered a few new songs that require A LOT of dancing. We have gone dance party crazy at this house. LMFAO is the name of the group and they have two songs that we just can't get enough of. "Party Rock Anthem" (the name says it all) and "I'm Sexy and I Know it" is the other one. I feel that club dancing is the best medicine of all for a rotten mood, so we make sure to blast these songs several times a day and just shake our butts. The kids love it and I hope this part of their upbringing really puts a lifelong stamp in their memories of me. I'm not the best and certainly not the worst, but I definetly like to have fun. I can't handle a shortage of that....EVER.
