In June, Dave and I celebrated our 14th anniversary. Rilie will turn 12 in October. Jenna will reach double digits in April. Ty will be in first grade (learning french) at the beginning of the school year.

I told Ty on the last day of kindergarten that he was a baby the day before and he would be getting married tomorrow. He didn't appreciate my exaggeration of time passing, and told me I was crazy.

Some days I look at my blessings (and no, I don't ALWAYS think of them that way) and wonder what I have been doing the last twelve years of my life. I have ulcers worrying about the heartaches, heartbreaks, and mistakes that they will have to endure.

But, for today, I want to think about some great times that we have had.

- Starting with a couple of shots from our last year (2004)on the house boat with Ericksons.

Even though I am pretty sure in the way too near future I will be posting about homecomings and engagements, I am going to try and enjoy every minute.
