Pinewood Derby 2013

This week Max's boy scout troop held their annual pinewood derby at Shimek. Max made a "creeper" car and so did his friend who is also big into MineCraft. All of the boys did a great job and had some super creative ideas for their cars this year. Max didn't win his race, but he had fun and that is really what it is all about.

New Beginnings

Each new year brings the chance for new beginnings. Usually I make resolutions and work to complete them through the following months. This year I really couldn't decide on any resolutions. Just one thought kept coming to my mind and that was to simplify. It seems that our lives are getting more and more complicated all the time. With Jered finishing up college this spring and the boys getting into more activities, I have been feeling like we need to do some physical and non-physical house cleaning. So that is my goal this 2013...to clean house, to get ready for the changes to come by making room for them to happen. Simplify.
