Keep your eyes on the prize...

October for us is a crazy busy month. We have so many things in "full swing" right now that it's a wonder we get everything done.

The older kids are competing again this year in the First Lego League Mindstorm competition. The practices are three times a week at our house. The actual competition isn't until December but they are working hard on their project now and their robot design.

Our youngest girl is doing fall soccer and loves every minute of it. She practices once a week with one to two games during the week. Along with soccer, both girls are involved in gymnastics once a week. If that's not enough, all of the kids take swimming, piano and are involved in Awanas at church once a week.

Whew...that will wear anybody out. But in the midst of all this craziness, there is one thing our entire family is looking forward to in just a couple of weeks. The golden prize so to speak...our vacation.

This year we decided to take the entire family and go to Argentina and we are beyond excited. We are going to see this... one of the greatest wonders...Iguaza Falls. We are also going to walk on this...

a real life glacier in El Calafate. And play with these...

at Valdes Peninsula. If that's not enough we will see some of the most beautiful countryside and experience life outside of our little world. The best part of all...we get to do it as a family.

So as our weeks get crazier we just keep thinking about what's coming at the end of the month and keep our eyes on the prize...


  1. What a wonderful time you will have! I can't wait to see all those photos and movies of your time there. Wish I could have taken you up on the invitation to go with you...maybe next time!

    Miss and love you,


  2. So, grandma gets an invite to join you but I don't? Geesh. :)
