Milestones

This past weekend Haley and I had the chance to go to Utah to celebrate Kayla’s graduation.  I took exactly one picture: So now Spencer and Kayla have officially left the world of student life behind and are looking forward to a whole new adventure.  They are still making plans for where life is going to take them next. Despite […]

All the latest

I’ve been sick for two weeks exactly today.  It has not been fun… tonight I feel like I’m at my breaking point – I just want Tom to put his arms around me in a great big hug and pat my head and tell me it’s going to be o.k. and I will actually get better soon.  And then he […]

(Almost) Four Months

Wow – I’ve been absent here almost long enough to just abandon the whole thing… What happened from April to now?  Well…  here’s a list: Haley finished her first year of high school – Yay!!  And her grades were significantly better than her last year of middle school or even her first semester as a freshman.  I’m really proud of […]

BYU Women’s Conference 2015

Talk about dislocation – try meeting up with college roommates, camping out in a dorm room, and attending classes at the university you attended two decades ago (and then some).  There’s nothing like it for making you think you’ve somehow jumped back in time – darn all those changes on campus for reminding me that I haven’t really time-traveled! Last fall […]

This and That

Well, in our home summer has come to an end – the kids are back in school.  Here are some of the highlights of the season. Camping – Haley and I went to our church girls camp.  It was Haley’s first camp since she moved to the teen church group.  She had a terrific time – she was the first […]

Promised Vacation Post

Anyone notice how fast this summer went??  I thought it would really drag since all my kids had a full summer this year (our first since Spencer started school here in Highlands Ranch.  We’ve been doing year round school up until this past year).  But between a quick trip out to Provo to celebrate Aaron Watson’s wedding (our nephew) and […]

Long overdue updates …

You’d think nothing has been happening in the Wood family – but that wouldn’t be exactly true. First – at the beginning of May I headed to Idaho for a reunion with my on-line buddies.  We met last year at a Mom’s Retreat where we all did the unthinkable and met up with people we only knew from the internet.  […]

Spring Break

So many thoughts floating around in my head … Spent last week with my parents in Monroe, Utah. Took my two youngest since they were on spring break. My sisters, Erin and Cynthia joined the party too. It was fun to watch our kids play together. I especially enjoyed the four year olds – they were “adorable” as my daughter […]

What’s Going On?

Is this what all my two readers are wondering?? I know that when my favorite bloggers go quiet I certainly start wondering. In my case, I’ve just been too lazy to blog – or too busy, can’t decide! We are in our final weekend until school starts again and I’m actually feeling a little sad because there were a few […]

Is my body telling me something??

I’ve been reading Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and I have to ask myself, “What is this on-going illness trying to tell me about my life??” (that’s an inside joke to anyone who has read this massive tome on how our thoughts and feelings come out in the illnesses and symptoms our bodies display). Seriously, though, I’m really tired of being […]
