Wow the new year has quickly approached and the first month is almost over! So much change has come from it so far. But then again change started in 2016. But they do say that change is good so I’m hoping those people are right.
Started off August with a move into a super big house. Have now decided the house is way too big and will be looking for something smaller when the time come. Iva Marie started the 6th grade in August and I can’t explain how proud I am of her. She is working so hard to stay on the AB honor roll and is doing really well in school. She has officially switched from gymnastics to cheer so I get to be a cheer mom once she makes team. She again is working super hard to get there. She is really becoming a well rounded young woman. I can’t wait to see what direction life takes her. She truly is my reason to be happy.
My scrapbooking and crafting has really taken a back seat to my life as I have no motivation to do anything really. At times I’ve even thought about selling it all off. I then remember how much joy it did bring me at one point. I hope to find it again and get back to it. I’ve made a card here or there. But nothing really more than that. I miss setting up my blog posts and working though them. Making a card or layout or whatever craft project Iva needs does make me happy. I just am currently stuck in a funk.
I did pick up my camera for the first time on Saturday the 28th as Iva Marie and I went to the zoo. Something we had not done in forever together. We both really enjoyed it and she loved that I loaned her a camera so she could take some pictures. Here are some of my favorite pictures that were taken on that day.
