Funny new blog

I just read in the newspaper about a blog that was started recently. It's called Seriously, So Blessed and it's a satire on Mormon mommy blogs. The author is supposed to be in her early 20's and calls herself Tiffany/Amber/Megan/Nicole or "TAMN" and she's married to Jordan/Jason/Wes/Taylor or "JJWT" who's going to medical/business/dental school. She talks a lot about being "preggers" and how wonder her life is. The article about the blog said that this woman was talking to some friends and they were laughing about "those perky mommy blogs" that are so prevalent these days. She started the blog just as a laugh for these friends, but it's really caught on. She says that it's all in good fun and isn't meant to be spiteful or critical, it just helps us laugh at ourselves and some of the stereotypes in the church.

Memory Tag

My friend Julie just did this game on her blog and it seemed like a lot of fun so I'm going to try it. Here are the rules:

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you. If you don't have a blog I will email you.

Irena Sendler

I just saw this video clip on another blog that I sometimes read. I had never heard of this amazing woman before and thought that many of you probably haven't either. Thought I'd share.

Where has the time gone?

Holy cow! It's been a month since my last post. I can't believe it. I knew it had been a while, but not that long. Well, if there's anyone out there who is still checking this blog, thank you.

Since my last post we have finished the baseball season. It turned out to be pretty fun. I wasn't the best coach and towards the end we had fewer and fewer practices, but I did the best I could, I guess. I think most of the kids showed some improvement by the end, so that's a good thing. Will I do it again? Only if I have to. And guess what?! I have to again. This time with Bookworm's(8) soccer team. I will only be the assistant coach this time, though. It's a good thing because I don't really know anything about soccer except for the obvious--kick the ball into the net thing, right?

We have also been on vacation. We went to Colorado to stay with my parents over the 4th of July. All my siblings were able to be there except for one out-law (we missed you, Daiko) so it was a lot of fun. A big, rowdy, crazy, crowded mess, but still fun. The kids loved playing with their cousins. I wish we could get together like that more often.
