My little artists

My kiddos have been taking art classes and they love it! Here is some of there art work from the past 3 months. Trenton drew this at Christmas time.
Madi won first place on her peacock she entered at the fair.
Jacob did these poinsettias at Christmas time and we plan on framing this one asap. Jacob also did a picture of the desert and won 2 place at the Fresno Fair this year.

Loven my new Kicks!

I got new kicks this weekend and
what a difference! I felt like I could run a lot longer (and a bit faster) with my new running shoes...worth every penny! I may not be a great runner (yet!) but I plan on running from now on, so good shoes are a must have.

-8 and counting!

I have now been working-out at FitCamp for 1 month and I have lost 8 lbs. I am so excited to be 8 lbs lighter, but I still struggle with wanting more, and faster, and now!! I keep having to remind myself this this is going to take time, that this is a journey...a long one at that.
I have recently met my first goal (jogging one lap without stopping) and now I'm on to my second (down a pants size. I'm so close, I can feel it!). Small goals have changed my life. I know that sounds silly, but for so long I set these unrealistic goals, and then I'm crushed when I don't meet them. Now I am setting small goals...meeting them...and then setting more. The goals are something I look forward to, instead of dreading.
Please keep me in your prayers as I go threw this new chapter in my life, and as I learn new things about this journey God has set before me. Sometimes it's hard and painful, but some times it's exciting and rewarding! Either way, it's all good... cause it's all God (at least I pray it is).
