Raelynn is in ballet and hip hop classes at Victory School of the Arts and tried out for the Christmas dance and she was in three different dances. She has been practicing and rehearsing for the last few months and she did a wonderful job! Cool Yule, dance for the holidays...

I am a just a little behind on my blog. I have been busy training for a 1/2 marathon and trying to raise $3,600 going towards The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. This is me and my friend Tracy. She lost her 10 year old son, Mitchell, to Leukemia over a year ago. This amazing boy and family battled through 2 yrs. of treatments, victories, & setbacks. His mom trained for & ran a full marathon in June with Team in Training to honor his memory. For her 40th birthday she has asked 40 of her friends to join her for a half or full marathon in January. It would be great if you would be able to donate, anything would be appreciated. Here is my link to make a online donation.

You can also check out the following websites for more information about our event and this amazing family. and

Thank you for your support, encouragement, prayers, and donations to help me get across the finish line.

Cousin Steve's wedding...
Kyler was asked to be the ring bearer in Holly and Steve's wedding and the first thought I had was, there would be no way that Kyler could be still for that long. So we asked Kyler if he wanted to be the ring bearer and he said yes. I really don't think he knew what it was all about. We were unable to make the rehearsal, so Steve and Clint had to show Kyler what to do right before the wedding started. The wedding starts and Kyler does pretty good for the first couple of minutes and then he starts to get antsy. So Scott and I are trying to whisper to him to be still and it just wasn't working. We were laughing quietly at him and trying not to let him know. He made it through the wedding and cousin Steve said that Kyler made him proud!!

I can't believe another school year has started. Raelynn will be in the 4th grade and Kyler will be in the 1st grade. They were so excited for their first day of school.
Raelynn & Mrs.Blood

Kyler & Mrs.Zeaman

Here is Kyler with his teacher at his desk. I thought this is going to be very hard to say goodbye so I leaned over and gave him a hug and he even gave me a kiss. Then his teacher gave me a pack of tissue and this little note.

The First Day

I gave you a little wink and a smile

As you entered my room today

For I know how hard it is to leave

And I know your child must stay

You've been with him for six years now

And have been a loving guide

But now, alas, the time has come to leave

him by my side

Just know as you drive away

And tears down your cheek may flow

I'll love him as I would my own

And help him learn and grow

So please put your mind at ease

And cry those tears no more

For I will love him and take him in

When you leave him at my door

( and yes I did need those Kleenex)
