Life Goes On... Click here to see Mom's slideshow.

Well, the boys headed back to school today, and I'm sitting here looking at a pile of pictures, thank you cards and a messy house. I can't seem to get anything done. I just go from one pile to another, and I'm drawn back to this BLOG. I keep thinking to myself, mom would not sit here in her pajamas, she would be like the tasmanian devil in a whirlwind putting things in order. I'm going to go get pictures printed this afternoon, and hopefully that activity will cause me to snap out of this lethargic attitude. Carder's Birthday is at the end of the month, so I'm going to focus on a GREAT Birthday party. Speaking of Carder, he lost a tooth yesterday. The tooth fairy brought $2 and he is on cloud nine. It is a beautiful day, maybe we can master the bike without training wheels today. He is going to be 7, but in his words, "Riding a scooter is just fine!" What a kid!

After reading our devotion last night, Kaden said, "It's too bad we can't call Jesus on the phone, it would be nice if we could just call him ask him how GaGa is doing." What a sweetheart.


  1. I am very excited about your Blog.. and I do think it will be a great to help in your healing. Kaden is so right, I feel like I would like to call Jesus sometimes and just ask "Is Nana alright?"..

    Love you guys!

  2. hey hey...

    Miss YA!

  3. Rachelle, I love to "listen" to your mind. I can't even wrap my head around the amount of lives that you touch, like every single day! Remember, every one defines their own grieving process, so don't you dare try to quantify yours. You GIVE GIVE GIVE; now just receive. Receive from Jesus, your family and all the people who love you so very much!
    Thinking of you all the time. Take strength however you can...sara

  4. What a fantastic slide show. I am so sorry to have heard about your mom. I hope that you have a good day and let yourself grieve!

  5. Hey Rachelle! I am excited that you have a blog! I love to keep up with people I don't see through their blogs! It is my downfall sometimes. I can spend hours doing it.:) I had a blog that I tried to keep updated, but then I started another one about our journey to become parents. It has been an all-consuming process, but God has spoken to me through your mom's life that she lived here on earth. I feel at peace and just trust in His plans. When you talked about your mom and how she trusted that God was good no matter what was going on, it just clicked for me. I am excited to keep up with your fam through this blog! Praying for you!
