Okay. Sometimes getting to the computer and actually putting words to blog is really tough. By kid bedtime I am tired and the couch has fives on my behind.
Our little fam has been extremely busy the last couple weeks. Scott started his new job and has been working a ton. It must be the over-achiever in him. He works a lot. Hopefully it will get better after he gets more settled.
Scott and I are also pretty involved at church right now. We are helping out with a new campaign at our church so we have added more meetings to our schedules. We are really excited to be involved and look forward to the progress that the church will be making with regards to families in need.
The kids are doing great and have been troopers in the midst of meetings, work dinners, extra-curricular activities and school. Sam is taking guitar lessons and loving it and continues to practice karate. Alice is still in gymnastics and Daisy Scouts. I am trying to teach her a little piano after school once a week. We’ll see how that goes. Paige is in preschool gymnastics and will be starting soccer soon. Mason is just loving life, running everywhere and working really hard at being 2, if you catch my drift.
Scott and I had a nice anniversary. He took Sam to a birthday party and the girls shopping and I went to my photography class. After we all met back at home, the sitter came for a couple hours and we had an awesome dinner and spent time downtown.
We are still keeping our fingers crossed that we get a skiing day this year. It would be nice for all the kids to get on their skis once but not sure if we will make it.
Paige is anxiously counting down the days to her birthday. She is having a couple friends from school over on Saturday for a Kai-lan birthday party. Luckily it is only two days away or she might burst with excitement.
In the craziness that is our lives, I am trying very hard to simplify at home. Okay, now that you have stopped laughing….It seems as though the stuff in this house is taking over. Slowly, very slowly, but surely, I am going to tackle the stuff.
Wish me luck! Say lots of prayers!!! Normally I don’t do resolutions at the start of the New Year but I think that I may have to back up a bit and make a promise to myself. Unclutter my house, thus my mind 🙂 I bought this sign at Hobby Lobby last week. It seemed to be calling to me. Now don’t get me wrong, lots of things at HL call to me but this was a bit different. Simplify. Quite simple actually. Get the stuff out.
