So...I have totally been slacking on the blog lately.  So much has happend in the last month.  After the death of a friend (Susan Griffies) whom I worked with at FLVS, then the death of a friend's husband, and then another close friend's father was diagnosed with bladder and prostate cancer I have been completely consumed by thoughts of how much I love my family and how blessed I am.

Reasons to be thankful for each one of them:

Clark:  He is the most amazing husband that anyone could ever ask for.  I love the way that he leaves me a love note every morning.  I love the way he smiles.  I love that he loves the Lord and is a great example to live by.  I love the way he loves being around the kids. I love that he is extremely smart and loves his students and school.  I love his butt!!!  HEHE.  :-)

Alex:  I love that he is so dedicated...to anything that he does.  I love that he is respectful to anyone he meets. I love that he loves the Lord and really shows it in his everyday life.  I love that he isn't afraid to try something new..even if it's going to be hard. 

Jill:  I love her sense of humor.  I love the way she loves life.  I love her smile and laugh.  I love the way that she brightens a room.  I love the way she that she has a tender heart (even though she tries not to let you see it).  I love that the word "can't" isn't in her vocabulary.  I love that people say that we are alike even though she isn't "mine"...per se.      :-)
 
 
What a great way to start Labor Day weekend...we put down sod in our side yard this weekend.  :-)  The frost settled on one side of our yard and it just didn't stand a chance this winter.  We kept hoping it was going to come back (yeah right!).

The kids were such an amazing help.  They helped out in such a HUGE way.  They were both helping shovel through the old dead grass (and weeds), pulling the remaining weeds, leveling out the soil and carrying sod all over the place.  I don't think Clark and I could have done it without them.  What a team!!!!
