Truly love one another...

I came across this video today. I will warn you, it is very hard to watch. I was a wreck after. But I am also thankful for seeing it, I will not forget. This seems so far removed from our daily lives, but its very real and its happening every day. It is horrible. What can we do?

National Champs!!

Yeah!! Bryn's team took first place at the Pac West Spirit Group Nationals this weekend! It was such a wonderful time! Her team did fantastic, we are so proud! She's all done for the year, this was her last competition...until we start all over in the fall. =) She really loves it and we love to watch her having fun. She asked Kyle tonight, "Dad were you ever a National Champion?" haha! Nope, he wasn't...Pac 10 Champion, but not National. Kyle told her she's the first in the family to be a national champion, and she thought that was pretty awesome.

Sugar rush...

So I'm checking in on my status of observing Lent for 40 days...Yeah, I didn't make the 40 days of no sugar. (I don't think I even made it one full day!) It was seriously way to hard for me. I do love sugary snacks and treats. However even if avoiding those I quickly found sugar is in just about everything! I think next time I need to be more specific. haha! It was hard to avoid.  High fructose corn syrup is a main ingredient in most foods in our cupboard, I think I will work on changing that. So I have been prayer journaling, and while i'll admit to missing a day or two...I have really enjoyed adding this to my daily routine. I think it will be great to read back over my prayers in time and see how God worked through each one.  So I am sticking to this and plan on it being something I continue beyond the 40 days.
