catching up

First.  Our Sprint-Tri was a success.  For sure one of the most rewarding things we've ever done together as a family (#whereissierra…maybe next year babe?!)

Gentry summing up how we all felt at the finish line. Yeah. That kind of happy. 

But there wasn't too much time to celebrate before I had to regroup and go into homecoming mode.  
It was Sierra's first dance and she went with one of her bff's, Blake.  

After Sierra's pictures, I rushed over to get just a few pics of Drew and his cute date Bailey before the sunset. 

 And then, it was off to Flagstaff for fall break and camp fires and s'mores and happiness with friends and family. And Sierra played her guitar and we sang a few songs, but our rendition of "Don't Stop Believing" was the No video here, you'll just have to take my word for it. 

Then last,  to finish out the week, Friday was our high school's annual choir BBQ fund raiser.   Sadie and Daniel sand this song four years ago. Sierra and Blake carried on the tradition singing "Everything has Changed" and you can watch that here. Circle of life.

And I keep trying to tell myself to live every moment and be in every moment knowing, in the end, the time our kids spend with us is really so very short.

Halloween Countdown: 3 days
This year I decided to wear a costume.  I have to say I am super excited about it and feel kind of like I did when I was eight and couldn't wait for October 31st.  I won't even tell my kids what it is.  Pics on Monday. 
Happy Halloween!
