15 years ago today my very best friend died......My Mom. She was one of the best people I have ever known. She was a shoulder for me to cry on, and a friend that I could stay up all night with just talking. I had her in my life for 16 years and I treasure each and every one of them. I am so fortunate to have as many memories of her that I have. My little brother was only 7 when she died and doesn't remember her very well, which is so sad to me because she was such an amazing person. I don't go a day without thinking of her or talking to her. She is my angel in heaven. I love you and miss you like crazy mom. LOVE YOU!!!
Dustys friend Noji invited us to come to Goblin Valley for part of Labor Day weekend. We arrived late Thursday night and came home on Saturday. I have never been down there before and thought it would be a fun time. Little did I know how much. It is the most beautiful place. The rocks and mountains are amazing!!! We went on a hike and saw some of the coolest things. It got to a point where we had to put our feet just one in front of the other and your shoulders would barely fit, but if you looked up it was amazing. The color of the sandstones and stuff were amazing! Then we went to Goblin Valley and it was so big and beautiful. You could climb up these rocks that we so awesome! The kids had an amazing time and met some new friends! We definitely plan on going back and going to The Arches and stuff. Pictures do not do this place justice. AMAZING!!!
This was our campsite!

Today Jordyn had her very first day of Kindergarten :( It was a little sad for me. This is the last time that I will have a child of mine start Kindergarten. She is growing up to fast and right before my eyes. She was the one who decided what she was gonna wear and how her hair was going to be done. I am very proud and scared about her skills in dressing herself! I better watch out! I think I may have a clothes diva on my hands! I drove her to school and walked her to her class. Then I stood outside for a little bit just watching her through the window. I didn't feel weird about it either because I wasn't the only one :) I didn't cry, which I am very proud of myself for. I am such a ball baby that I thought that I might, but I didn't. When I picked her up she told me about her day and then we went to the Olive Garden for our first day of Kindergarten lunch I do with the kids. It was a bitter sweet day, but a good one!!!
The cute outfit she picked
She wanted her hair in buns and I found some cute bows to match her outfit she picked out
