She's a runner!

I was so proud of Haylie in her school jog-a-thon this year. Last year was pretty rough, not only did she walk almost the entire time but she was about the slowest walker I have ever seen :) This year she did so much better!! She actually ran a decent amount of the time and completed 21 laps as compared to her 12 last year. It cost me more money but it was well worth it!!

So proud of her lap card:

Apple Hill or bust

Every year, lately, it seems like we just barely make it to Apple Hill. I love to go as soon as fall hits but our early fall weekends seem to fill up so fast. Plus I think Micah likes to avoid the crowds at Apple Hill so it gets put off. We usually try to find a week day and then run out of time. This year I picked a day in advance, and we headed up before Halloween even!!

The kids enjoyed feeding the animals, picking pumpkins, running the Hay maze 100 times (they were having a competition - Daddy was timing them to see if they could get faster each time).

Making a Difference in Your Community

I was truly honored to be a speaker today at Assemblywoman Beth Gaines' Northern California Women's Conference. My breakout session was called "Making a Difference in Your community."

Wednesday, October 5, 2011


This year we went to Hume Lake again for our Bible Study women's retreat. The speaker was Sheri Rose Sheperd and we completely enjoyed her. She is a fantastic speaker with great messages that really gave us all something to walk away with. Most of all we loved hanging out together, chatting it up, watching movies and talking about good books. Always love weekends away with the girls.

Max, my dog

"Max my dog." Oh how Haylie loves her puppy! Glad we made the choice to go for it.
