Oh my goodness!

I just realized that I haven’t posted for three weeks!  Four reasons:

1. Taking care of an “invalid” takes a lot of time!  Dad/Rick tore a ligament right through on his rotator cuff in his shoulder playing basketball and has had surgery. Seven little holes are healing well on his shoulder but progress is slow. He’s given up all hope for basketball or tennis at least for 5 months. Shucks! 

2.  The minute the last child left the first week of August we have both put our heads down, doing our best to work on pre-sales of our new book (The Entitlement Trap). Bless the Internet! Without our kids' and grandson Ashton’s help online we’d never be able to pull this off. 

3.  We’ve been speaking at Education Week in Provo. Last presentations were today.  So fun! So many great people!

4. I sent both my cameras to England with Charity (long dramatic story).  She left me hers but I can’t remember to find it!


Smiling on the way into surgery:


NOT SO HAPPY and totally “drugged out” right after surgery. 


Watch for a post on Monday which is National Entitlement Awareness Day and a giant give-away.  I’ve never even thought of doing a giveaway on this blog because I thought that I was just sort of writing to the family. BUT on google analytics it seems that there are “a few” others who are peeking in. Check in on Monday. If you are a blogger yourself we’d love your help!

I've decided to give up my 'blog-stalking' ways and actually make a comment on your blog. I've been reading your's and Shawni's blogs for quite sometime. I love your books and I am so inspired by you. I was able to attend your Thursday and Friday Classes at Education Week, I LOVED them. Thank you for bringing much needed perspective back into my life...I have a 3 year old and 2 year old and it's easy to get bogged down in the 'mundane' and forget about focusing on striving for a Christ Centered home. I admire and appreciate all you do.

I can't wait for the new book to come out! i love your passion for family and teaching and you both have helped me so much to become the kind of mom I want to be. I will be at the Richmond Time Out for Women in October and I can't wait to hear you and Shawni speak!

Hi Linda, I too will stop the stalking and say that I love your blog (and all the other Eyre blogs too). They are so fun to read and very helpful.
I would love to hear you guys speak again if you had any dates in England.
Hope Richard feels a lot better soon.
