Mini Me

This weekend we went to Parker with some friends of ours. We had a great time relaxing and playing in the water. Joe's friend Brady came with his wife and kids and their youngest daughter Stella, was just cute as a button. Joe kept saying that we looked liked we could be mother and daughter.

What do you think?

A Day I Will Always Remember

7 years ago today I was getting ready to go to work as a 4th grade teacher in Pleasant Grove, Utah. The morning didn't seem any different than normal, until I got the call that 2 planes had crashed into the World Trade Center. I of course called my family since we were spread across the country and thankfully we were all ok. Thank goodness none of us were direct victims of this crime. I remember so vividly going to work and looking at 28 little faces who were scared and confused. I fought tears back that day, and tried to let them know that we were ok, all the time trying to convince myself that we truly were free from threat. I guess none of us really knew if there would be more attacks. I had never scanned the horizon so much.

This morning, I am still fighting back the tears. No historical event that I have experienced influenced me like that of 9/11. I'm grateful to live in this country and for the proud men and women who have given their lives for our freedom.
My heart aches.
