With that in mind I am going to do some catch up of prior scrapping that I didn't blog while I took a hiatus from blogging. Come laugh, smile and maybe cry with me as I look back and see where I've traveled.
One of the things I had to get used to following my divorce, was doing things alone with the kids. The first year was hard, but with time it has gotten easier, except when it's expected I be in two places at once. Still haven't figured out how to do that.
As a family we used to go to an evening parade in the summer called the Torchlight Parade. It starts at 7 p.m. and goes as late as 10 p.m. with the floats outrigged with lights to make them seem magical as the sky darkens. But I was leary of taking two young boys (5 years) downtown on the bus at night alone. I decided to go for it and we had a lovely time, although the ride back seemed an eternity. Here's a layout to document my bravery and new-found confidence as a single mom navigating new horizons.
A couple months later we took on the Puyallup Fair...nothing can stop us now.
