But There's No Escaping Your Love

     The title of this post was taken from the song Accidentally In Love by Counting Crows.

     I started this blog as a way to handle my grief. As I have begun to construct a different life for myself I've struggled with writing about happy things on here. I almost feel like if I don't post about Mike that I'm somehow betraying him or not recognizing how much I loved him. I've also come to realize that this is a great way for me to journal about how life was, how life is, and how I hope life will be in 10 or 20 years. So, I plan on doing more writing. Just a fair warning it won't all be about Mike or my grief. It's just going to be about my life as it is no matter what it looks like at the moment.
     Where did this come from? There are websites that will take your blog and print it into book format. I want to do that with my blog. Of course it's just for me. I just want a tangible copy of what I write. I was thinking that at the end of each year I would have one printed for that year and then it can be my ongoing journal for my family. 
      So, let's start with what I'm going to call Photo Bomb Friday and it's something I want to do every week. Here are pictures I've taken from this last week. 

Beautiful smile! Love that boy!

Sebastian's end of the year choir concert. I am so proud of him and all of his accomplishments. He even auditioned for, and made, District Chorus this year.

Hello Me!

Mikayla holding Jaxon. I love her so much!!

Mom, Dad, Jaxon, and Gracie. I don't think Jaxon knows what to do with such a small dog! And isn't my mom beautiful!

Yikes! Sebastian had an away JV soccer game and we picked him up when it was over, but the bus was locked and we couldn't get his backpack. How convenient that the windows were down and his backpack was on the seat. John gave him a boost :) This is legal right? John looks all serious but I thought we were all going to die from laughing so much. Making memories :)

The kiddos in the car waiting for Tyler's bus to come. They are counting down the days until the end of the school year!

On Wednesday the youth of our church had an etiquette night at Hillcrest Bed and Breakfast. Members of our church own this beautiful place and are working on turning it into a bed and breakfast. Anyway, they served a four course meal with full place settings and taught them some things about good etiquette. It was really neat and the kids had a lot of fun! 

This is a wrap up of the last week. Looking to the future I want see my grandkids reading these posts and laughing at the silly things their parents did. Oh, the memories we are making.
