1st day of school

The kids started school a little over a week ago. As sad as I was to see summer come to an end, it was great to get back into a routine again. Madisyn started 8th, Emily 5th and Hannah 1st grade.

My little girl

youtubeThis song has been my song for Ashley since she was little. Mike and I got pregnant with her at a VERY young age and I still remember to this day how shocked and scared I was, I had NO idea how I was going to raise a child.
 9 months later however, my maternal instincts kicked in and when Ashley Paige came into this world I couldn't imagine how I  could possible love someone so much. She has always been my little tag along, she's been in my life longer than she hasn't. I literally grew up with my own daughter. I really treasure the relationship I have with her.

My dreaded time has come where I have to send Ashley off to college, she'll definitely be taking a piece of my heart with her to Utah, I'll miss her more than words can say...... .
 As the lyrics say, the curly hair, the loaded Honda, 15    30 pairs of shoes, heading to the west.... However, she won't have my American Express. :)
I love you Ashley Paige

Dear Emily,

I can't believe you turned double digits you are getting too big too fast! I want you to know how special you are to your family. You are definitely the comedian  of the family, you always have something funny and witty to say. You are a great friend to everyone, you make me smile on a daily basis. Some of my favorite things about you are your beautiful eyes,  laugh,  kind heart, personality, the example you are to everyone. I love your hugs, stories and your interesting food choices. I am so happy you got to spend your birthday with your cousins, it's been a long time since you've got to do that. I hope this year is a great one for you.
Love, Mom.

  Some of the things that you love right now now are Monster high dolls, your American girl doll and playing with your friends.
