Chapman Sister Weekend

I got dropped off on our way back home from Utah to hang out with these girls for the weekend at Hope’s house. We ate at the restaurant at the golf course by her house.  I hadn’t showered yet so they had to deal with my camping aroma!  It’s always fun to just sit around a table and on couches and just talk and talk. We slept at Hope’s house and she kicked out her husband and kids.  We had way too much fun and stayed up too late chit chatting. We woke up the next morning and drove straight to the thrift store for some finds.  Amy and I found these somewhat matching mo mo dresses so we could try on pants and skirts.  We scored on some great things! We went to lunch at Chipotle and chatted more then went back to Hope’s house to show off all our finds.  We all tried on and modeled our clothes for...

“WICKED”

Reeghan saved up $63 in points from her MyJobChart that we do at home because she was anxious to see the play “Wicked” while they are here in San Diego.  That’s alot of $$ for a girl her age and I am so proud of her for the discipline of saving it up for this activity to share with her mom. We also shared the night with Tyler, Kelly and Kaylee This was one happy satisfied little...

Jazzercise and JazzerCamp

Errin and Shauna are my dear friends from Carlsbad and when I lived over there they talked about Jazzercise all the time but I had already had my exercise regime at home in place and didn’t want to change.  Then I moved out to San Marcos and then Errin talked me into coming over to “try” it out and I instantly fell in love with it. Problem was is that the energy in the Oceanside studio was amazing but the commitment to drive there everyday was taking a toll on me so I only lasted 2 months but it was a fun ride and now I am back to my own home workouts.  Maybe another time. However during that short time I noticed they were doing a JazzerCamp for kids and I knew the girls would love to participate in something like that.  They met some fun friends and did a little performance at the end of...

My 31st

My birthday fell on a Sunday which I secretly love! I get to see more people that day because I am at church.  I love being around people I love and adore and these 4 munchkins make me who I am and teach me everyday that life can be fun and that I should take time to PLAY.  I have been so blessed to do and have the things that are around me. In my short 31 years of life I can say with confidence that I know who I am and where I want to be.  Nothing is going to stop me from holding on tight and finishing my race and with these special people by my side I hope that I can encourage them along their race as well. Being a mom is hard work but I wouldn’t change it for anything else.  So now that I have made it officially over 30 I don’t really feel any different so we shall see what this next year brings for...

Gift Letter from Trent

Sarah is so very gifted when it comes to seeing the best in others. She is slow to judge and quick to forgive (yes, unfortunately I experience this often). She is also a very patient mother, much more patient than I could be and in spite of the occasional slip up, her kids know she truly does love and cares for them. I have never had to be concerned about their wellbeing as I know Sarah is an exceptional nurturer and knows how to make them feel loved and protected. Sarah has a very solid testimony of the gospel and the Savior and has never had any doubt or ever wavered in her resolve to have an eternal family. She is truly the Christ-like example in our home and her pure kindness is a reflection of that. I don’t know anyone who is as organized as Sarah. She has a gift for making things fit together in a home. A few other things that I have learned about Sarah over the last 10 years is that she is willing to sacrifice her needs and wants to help and serve others, even those whom she barely knows. She lives her life in a way that our children will never doubt that Sarah does sincerely care about God’s children and will serve them whenever the chance arises, in spite of her own desires, needs and wants. I have been so blessed to have such a positive and supportive wife who has never questioned my ability to provide for the family and has supported me even in the worst of times. Not once have I heard a bitter or unkind word, even when I made horrible decisions that caused financial suffering and stress for our family. I couldn’t ask for a more faithful and supportive wife and friend. Sorry Susan, but Sarah really is the best. :...
