Between school schedules, activities, work schedules, social engagements, and even the dog’s grooming schedule my head has been left spinning. We’ve had a few different types of ways to keep things organized but they didn’t seem to really help. For example, our Family Calendar that had everyone’s info each month was so cluttered that the hubby said he needed a compass to navigate it. Ugh… This year, right when I got my daughter’s school schedule I took the time to sit down and enter it all into Cozi right away. It only took a few minutes and I’m set for the year.
This mama is an inspiration. I met her and her strong family a month ago and I was so impressed. Her family experienced something that would test the bonds of any family. Instead of feeling the strain, their experience and pain pulled them together. Even their unborn son was strong enough to wait to be born until just the right time. If baby James had been born any earlier, the tests they ran on his big brother would never have shown that he had cancer. Another amazing thing about Nichol and her family, is that they never focused on that diagnosis. They focused on life and enjoying every moment they were given. They spent many days at the hospital trying to make the small room they were stuck in FUN for their 4 year old son. Here is their story of family strength in Nichol’s own words.
This rocky seashore hosts a living community of marine life that is of great interest to visitor and naturalist alike. A variety of seaweed, crabs, sponges, seastars, mollusks, and fish make their homes in the inter-tidal; that area between low and high tide. The Reserve is set aside to protect this complex but fragile community for us and future generations.
