I am Italy

You Are Italy

You are incredibly chic. Your confidence and sense of style always shine through.

You are obsessed with presenting yourself well. You understand how much first impressions matter.

Your family is very important to you. You provide them with any emotional or financial support that they need.

But more than anything, you just enjoy spending time with your family... especially when food is shared!

I saw this in K-Mom's blog and then again in Poodlehead's blog. I guess I like the food in Italy, we'll go with that.

on going to church...

Here in Alabama church is pretty consistent, most people go. I am reminded of when I was in Utah, most people went there, but it seemed like it was mostly a defensive move, to prove the Mormons wrong or something. I like going to church, it's nice having another community that I belong to. I like having dinner prepared for me on Wednesday nights, and the kids can play while I chat with other moms. I also like believing in God. I feel better feeling like something bigger is taking care of things here. I don't think, however, that there is a "wrong church" or a "right church", I think that as long as we go, it's all good. Now, I don't mean that if you don't go it's bad, you have that right as a human being, if you can't fit it in your day then by all means, don't go. I like going because I feel better when I go to church. I like singing the hymns and the fellowship with the people at church, feeling like I'm being cared for, not just by a higher power, but also by the congregation. I feel better not only by praying for the poor, sick and suffering, also because we donate time, money and service to them.

There you have it, why I like church. Besides, look how cute the kids are in their little dresses. :)

Baby Princess going to school...

There she is before her first day. I am so proud of her being at "preschool", but I feel like my baby is growing all up. I have always been happier when my kids have grown older, but now I guess it feels more final. I'm not going to have anymore kids, I am not even sure if I can. She's my last baby.

She was probably more ready for school than I was, no tears. And look at her, a cute little school girl! :)
