And we remember..

video

I was so excited to find this video on my laptop. I forgot that the same night that I shot the short video of Liam running across his living room, I also got this short little video of Alli and Liam while they were watching The Land Before Time. Even though Liam doesn't say anything in this video, and I would do ANYTHING in the world to hear his little voice again, it still makes me feel so peaceful to see his little body in his own living room, watching his favorite movie

Not much to update tonight. Classes are interesting, and we've finally set up our bedroom and most of our house. We still haven't unpacked the XTerra from camp, but that will happen tomorrow hopefully.

I miss the little man a lot today...I think it's because I had to unpack my room and decide where to put my special box of Liam things. And I have that awesome drawing that he made for me that needs to find a place on my wall!

It's midnight and I'm tired.
Love everywhere,
Kristen

Shaboom, Shaboom...


Outside Berry Hill, I'm at the bottom left


This is one of my most favorite pictures of the summer.

(Meg, me, Meg, Elaina, Kelly)



Me and Ryan!



Em and I at the banquet.




My summer is now over. Crazy, insane things have happened...and beautiful, amazing things have happened. Funny times, really sad times, really ANGRY times, and really happy times :) Classes started today, so my summer is officially over.


I don't even know where to start, so I don't think I will. I can't even really explain the summer when people ask me, so I won't try to write it out in actual words. All that needs to be said is that I helped make 1,300 kids to have the best weeks of their lives... and I made some of the best friends- and I really needed that at this point in my life. I learned how to build a fire and keep it going, and I also learned how NOT to delete all the pictures off my camera (yes, all of my Idaho/Yellowstone pictures = GONE...but it's okay, I've finally stopped crying about it.) I also learned how to push my limits way past what I thought they were, which was a surprise.

I apologize for the random, sporatic posts this summer..things will calm down soon, and I will go back to posting regularly about whatever I feel like =)
Love everywhere,
especially to my new H**ver family,
Kristen. (Co**er?)
