Ten Things to Smile About This Month

I cannot believe that August is almost over!  That means "fall" is just around the corner, and really the rest of the year will just go so fast.   Since it is the last Tuesday of the month I am looking back and finding 10 things that made me smile this month.

Ten Things to Smile About in August 

1. The successful start of another school year. The kids all have great teachers and are loving school!

4. My family and kids who often make hard choices to stand up for what they believe in.

5. Going to the BYU women's soccer game and getting a picture of the goalies- mine and BYU's

10. And the fact that Ryder's first (and hopefully last) trip to the ER was only because of a popcorn seed stuck up his nose.  More about that tomorrow.

What made you smile this month?

Linky will be open for two weeks!


  1. Love that you went to Six Flags for date night! I want to do something fun like that with Match. You two are always so good about keeping the spark. Uhoh, popcorn kernel up his nose? Glad he's okay!

  2. I haven't been to Six Flags in at least 20 years. Where does the time go???
