The girls began Spring break today and the weather has decided to co-operate with their time off. It was 85 degrees...off to the beach we went! I don't have great pictures, but we had a great day, with great friends!
Just last week we had rain for several days in a row and then...
As soon as the rain stopped, we headed out. As busy as we are, we hadn't been on a bike ride in some time. There is nothing like a good old-fashioned bike ride.
5 Reasons I Smile....I started my blog in March of last year. I wish I new how to put the link here for my first post. I titled it Starting Somewhere. (you can go back to it at the side bar)
Wow, I am somewhere.
My children have given me so many amazing, precious gifts. I continue to grow, discover and transform because of them. I feel like I am the luckiest mom in the world to be blessed with my four girls.
One of the gifts Kamryn has given me is the gift of clarity. It is so clear to me that I need to focus and put my energy into today. Before I had her, I thought I was doing that. I was, however not in the more simplistic sense that I do now.
I used to assume that all my children would go to college, find an amazing man to spend and enjoy their life with, discover a career they are passionate about, have children and live happily ever after.
Now, I hope all my children will live happily ever after.
I don't know or assume what that will be. I just put my energy into raising strong, polite, compassionate, confident women. With humbled hearts that are full of love and joy.
And I enjoy every day. Rain or shine, because I want them to.
I blog because of Kamryn. I wasn't blogging before her. I am not a writer. I don't have extra time. It is not a hobby and even though it still scares me to share my life, our life with whoever wants to read it, I have a reason. She is it and she is pretty amazing.
A Kamryn update.
She loves Yogurt Creations!
She is great at independent play. She took that toy from the play room and set it up right there to play!
She had the stomach flu :(
Gosh, she is so cute!
She is determined!
She can do this in 2.2 seconds.
It was a great day and it has been a beautiful year.
