Time Out For Women

This Saturday was a awsome experience. I went to the Desert Books Fifth Annual "Time Out For Women." It was so fun, I went with Jeremy's sister Brigette and my mother-in-law Priscilla. I met two of my best friends Shelly and Diane Nuttall there too. I saw at least 20 people there that I knew from Yuma, Buckeye, and Safford AZ, it was a great day. Jenny Froggly was the musical perfomer, along with Michael McClean who also hosted the event. Dean Hughes was there, he is the author of the "Children of the Promise" books, and many others as well. There were several more speakers, but I am drawing a blank on their names, they were great though. I really needed the "pick me up" from this event. It helped me put a few things in perspective and to also take my mind off my sweet little dog for a few hours, it was a great time. Shelly and Diane if you ever read this, thanks for everything, I love you two sooooo much, you have ALWAYS been there for me, I can't wait till next year!

I know this picture is kinda of morbid, but this is our special little girl. I have had this sweet dog since she was a tiny little pup. I got her when I was 16 years old. Last night she passed away. When we got home from the vet, Skyler wanted to put these flowers in with her. We also put a family picture in there and then Skyler wrote her a special letter telling her how much he loved her and will miss her. I have been a total mess since yesterday, I just love this dog so much and am completely devastated that she is gone. I haven't been this sad since my dad passed away I have to keep telling myself that she is in a better place and is happy and not in any pain. We love you Tippy Girl!

I figured I better get at least a couple pictures of my kiddos by the pool since I never have. Swim season is about over at the Devey House, our pool is getting cold. How sad is it that just because the nights cool a little, our pool is too cold, I mean it is still in the 90's during the day.

This is my favorite little boy in the whole world! He is such a big helper with his daddy being gone. He makes me so proud! He got his progress report yesterday and is exceeding in everything except for in writing and with that, he is right at grade level. His reading and comprehension is at a 5th grade reading level, and he just turned 7 this summer. It is such a blessing that he is doing so well especially because I am so busy with Kenzie and her learning to speak and listen. Anyways he is awsome. I know I am braggin, but I am just so proud of him! I was so worried with how he would do this year without dad around. The other day he told me, "Mom I don't want to be the man of the house because sometimes I get scared without dad here. It totally made me tear up. We miss our daddy, thank goodness he still gets to come visit us lots. This year will go by fast though and then we will all be together again. We love you daddy!

So Kenzie is really into dressing up like a dancer and singing her "LA LA LA's" as she spins around the house. She is such a princess. This pict is right after she jumped off the couch and her implant headpiece fell off, so I was trying to tell her to say cheese for the camera and since she can read lips so well she says, "Mom, stop talking, do not tell me to say cheese yet because my implant fell off and I can't hear you, ok!" Oh Kenzie I love you. You make my life so fun and interesting with all the silly things you say!
