Despite her love of dancing, this past fall she stopped enjoying ballet. Though I don't ever want to be the mom to force my children to do something they don't enjoy, we won't let our children quit if they've made a commitment. She still wanted to be in the Nutcracker, which required her taking a ballet class. She just wasn't enjoying her ballet class. So once the Nutcracker was over, we let her quit ballet. This semester, for the first time since she was two, Elizabeth isn't dancing.
And though I'm bummed my only daughter isn't dancing, I am so excited to watch her focus on a new endeavor..... running!
God truly blessed me with my daughter. He also blessed her with abilities in several areas. I'm so thankful that I get to spend more time with her, watching as she continues to discover and grow in her areas of passion and joy! What a delight Elizabeth is to Curtis and I, in whatever activities she pursues!

In the precious post, I as going to brag about how I figured out how to blog from my phone without the help of Curtis. Then I lost the post and posted without knowing it. Clearly, I'm not as cool as I thought.
Recently, I've tried my hand at pancake making. Every time has ended in frustration and gooey pancakes. My friend convinced me I should give it one more shot and shared her recipe with me. Yesterday Curtis had a delayed start to his work day due to some winter weather, so it was the perfect day to try my hand at pancakes before permanently making our family a waffle family. They were incredible!
Here's the reipe for the incredible, fool proof buttermilk pancakes.
3 t baking soda
1 1/2 t salt
4 cps buttermilk
3/4 cp melted butter
So maybe, armed with my new pancake recipe, I am as cool as I think!

And for those of you who know us, you know it's not for lack of activity!
It's also not for lack of amusing stories, silly things my kids have said, beautiful pictures or special occasions.
But my life is just too rich, too fun, too full to not share!! I cherish the memories, moments, special occasions and pictures that have previously been posted and feel sad and disappointed that there is a four year gap in those memories.
Be ready! I'm back and ready to blog!
