True Greatness

Those things which we call extraordinary, remarkable, or unusual may make history, but they do not make real life.

After all, to do well those things which God ordained to be the common lot of all mankind, is the truest greatness. To be a successful father or a successful mother is greater than to be a successful general or a successful statesman.
 (Joseph F. Smith, Juvenile Instructor, 15 Dec. 1905, p. 752.)

Guilty Picture Dump

Crazy!  my life has been a bit CRAZY!  I still don't know where July went let alone August.  Summer came and went so quickly and school has started again despite an earthquake and hurricane the week before.  Our summer was filled with trips, visitors, lazy days, and family fun.  Can I just say I love my family and LOVE spending time with them.  I've got the CUTEST family out there.  Just saying ;)

Okay, so I find I don't often have the extra mental capacity to pull of the caliber of blog post I would like to, so I keep putting it off and then I'm hit with the guilt that it didn't get done, and then it continues to not get done because by then there are other things that are blog worthy that too are getting put off.... a vicious cycle. 


here is your guilt free picture dump.  I've got cute kids and I'm going to flaunt them.  The pictures will have to speak for themselves, literally -- cause if I think about it, it wont happen. 

[can you tell it's been a long day and I crashed about 7:30 and I'm not quite normal right now? :) ]
