My little man is almost 11 and he completed his requirements to receive his arrow of light! He will now be in the 11 year old scouts with Brother Murphy. I was proud of all his hard work this past year. Now my late nights are filled with a jumbo scout manual trying to get a grip on that program! Way to go my sweet boy!

There are no words to describe the feelings I have about middle school approaching in a few months. Am I ready to let go of my little boy? Heck no! I am FREAKING OUT!!! We've had lots of talks about the good, the bad and the ugly and all I can do is pray like a wild woman. I'm trying to focus on all the amazing things middle school will offer, but sadly, I'm still searching for them! I know he will survive, we all did, but I'm not ready for this! Just the other day Daisy asked what getting to second base meant!

Every once in awhile when I take personal inventory of my life, I feel a little lost and buried. The past few months have been a little wild and I'm still trying to come down from it all. I know myself and know I can function at a crazy stress level, but I think I'm really tired right now. I can't seem to rest my mind and my anxiety level is through the roof. I keep praying to settle down the thoughts in my head, but I just feel like I'm spinning constantly. The thoughts, the to-do's, the obsessing- it just doesn't seem to stop. And sleep, I wish there was more than a few hours, all of which are interupted. I love my life and where I'm at, I just feel a little crazy and need to find a way to calm it all down. I think I need to go to the temple and clear my head! Just a morning vent...
