The purpose of this blog is to capture some of the high lights and low lights of just normal day to day life. Our life is loud, busy, and fast, but we love it!


Back in the swing of things

Today we were back to regularly scheduled programming! Morning gym routine, school, dance, etc. 

Things went smoothly thanks to this mama taking the time over break to prepare and our family meeting last night to set the mood and prepare our minds and hearts. 

Our cleaned and prepped school room ready for school today. Including freshly sharpened number 2 pencils.
Two of the four ballerinas off to dance with their new gear! 

Here's to another day tomorrow with smiles...even if they're half smiles. 😃


I'm grateful for good friends. Those who are likeminded and raising their kiddos very much like we are. It's also more inviting to hang out with friends when you like their kids. 

This afternoon we spent time celebrating our friends son's 5th birthday and then went to see their second oldest's improve show. Such a fun time with people we care about....including their kids! 

Love these two kiddos and their friendship is adorable! 


New Year, New Goals

What if I had more time to blog? Or pee? Or sit? I'll focus on the blogging part for the purposes of this post. I hate that this sweet blog just sits here. It has for the entire 2015 year. 

I just spent the last few minutes looking at old posts and after I shed a few tears for how fast my girls have grown I was reminded how much I love capturing our special moments and memories in the making.

So, no resolutions to work out more ( I already do that). None to lose weight (pah-lease). Just one to take time no and then to write down the happenings of our happy home. 

Our jar of memories is empty today, but all too soon will be filled with movie tickets, laughter, smiles, and joy. 

Here's to a great year in 2016!
