I wasn’t too sure I’d participate in the circle this month because I didn’t think I had a creative set of images to share. When I opened the files, I decided I’d go ahead and post what I had because these will still be important to the one who matters the most … Brooks. These are still the memories I want him to remember and think back on with fond memories. This month I decided to choose joy, inspired by Ashley of lilbooblue who also battled cancer. I bought a beautiful necklace and some wristbands to share from Ashley’s shop … both with the phrase … choose joy. This has helped to reshape my days with a positive attitude.
Each day you teach me so much. You are the reason I choose to live with grace and joy. You are the one who brings smile and laughter into every day. Thank you!
I just have one quick snap of your second grade performance with Mr. Lee. You and your classmates did a great job singing!
Every chance you get, before and after soccer, you love to shoot a few hoops. It always cracks me up to see your ‘style’ as you shoot! You are starting basketball this week and I hope you continue to love it and hopefully you still love the game.
You did a great job representing your team as team captain. The season wraps up this next weekend and I couldn’t be more proud of you and your team. Pretty impressive to finish your first season together as the runner up of your division. You play with such a fierce passion! Your speed and endurance is nearly unbeatable in defense. Great job!
You always set such a good example of choosing joy. Whenever I see you with your friends, you are all so happy. I have no idea what you all are always laughing at and maybe I don’t want to know, but I love seeing you so happy. Here you are with your buddies, just before the school Halloween parade.
And a few from your class party.
We couldn’t let the day end without a few pics with you and your best buddies.
After school, we went straight to our traditional Halloween party at Ms. Veronika’s house. We’ve celebrated Halloween with this crew every year … love our friends!
To continue on with our busy week, we celebrated your 8th birthday with dinner out with your friends. You three are SILLY! So so SILLY! You shared the Gangnam style video with them during dinner then the three of you decided to put on your own dance show … right in front of all the people at the Commons. It was hysterical!
Your birthday weekend was wrapped up with the Color Run 5K. Of course we were the early birds so we had great parking and had a chance to walk around and meet up with people before the run. When we ended up on the front line of the start line, you decided that you wanted to run this on your own … I was just too slow for you. At the start of the event, you were off like a shot! You totally left me in the dust. It was fun to cheer you on at the turn around point. I cut out part of the race so I could run to the car and grab my camera to catch you come across the finish line. You ended up being the 11th finisher overall. It was an awesome experience to share with you!
Before …. (you thought it was so funny that I was wearing a tutu to run in … I agree, but when else do you get to wear a tutu … it was a first for me).
Thanks for bringing so much joy into my life!
Be sure to continue on with my dear friend with Sarah Cornish | My 4 Hens.
