Sunshine on my shoulders.....makes me happeeee! Sunshine in my eyes, can make me blind! Sunshine on the water......loooks so looooovveeeleeee....sunshine almost always makes me smile.
I LOVE blue skies and sunshine!! I don't care how cold it is, if the sun is out all is awesome in my world!! January is a tough month for me...all the gray days from November on seem to culminate in January. But then the sun comes out!!!YAAAAAAAYYYY!!!!
Well, the year is off to a running start. Already up to my armpits in alligators, now I am trying to keep them all organized so they don't bite me in the .....er..hmmm fanny. Kimber Academy is back in full swing, so that also brings running the kids back and forth. Adam and Dylan both take Martial Arts- there is a fancy name......Buddo Taijitsu I think.......and they love it. So much that Adam finally talked me into letting him take it 2 evenings a week as well. And Dylan is totally disgusted with the fact that he can't do so, since he has fireman class and drill on the same nights. He isn't disgusted enough to stop the fire thing tho.
Tuesday and Wednesday I spent at the Academy. It was so great to be with all the kids, and learn along with them. The Spirit was so strong, and you can see it helping the kids learn and absorb all the information. Yesterday, the younger class wanted to know about the endocrine system. All the kids are studying the human body right now, but the endocrine system wasn't included in the younger kids' information. 2 of the older kids put together a little presentation, and went upstairs to the junior class, and taught them about the endocrine system. How awesome is that?
I love working with the Academy. We are getting ready to present a "One Evening a Month for America" seminar. It is going to be really exciting with guest speakers, one of which will be Dr. Kimber. We are doing it as a fundraiser, so let me know if you want a ticket! Further details to follow! In March, we are hosting a Book of Mormon readathon allnighter that is open to everyone. Tentatively, there will be different stations for the younger kids for the first 2 hours.
And now, it is already Thursday! I cannot believe how fast the weeks are flying by. It seems like I just wake up, do a few things, and then it is time for bed again. Well, better go flip the laundry, mop the floors, and take a shower. Happy Thursday!!
