WOW!!! Time flies...I think of sitting down and writing so often but clearly it doesn't happen. Life is full right now. It is great. God is so good. We are doing our best to fight the craziness. For some reason, these days they make you think you need to sign your kids up for 50 million activities and be involved in this and that and have "playdates"(I hate that word!!) and shuffle your kids around town. On top of all that you are supposed to help your kids get their homework done, clean house, do laundry, attend birthday parties, make time for friends and grandparents, have family time, etc. I seriously don't know how people do it all!! I am def one of those people who can't...and doesn't want too. Let me make it clear though I don't think there is anything wrong with "doin it all". I think it works for some families and that is how they function best! Good for them! It just ain't for this family...for now at least. We are trying our best to enjoy life and each other. My main goal in life right now is to be the best mom and wife I can be and there is not much more I can add to life right now without it taking away from that. One thing that has def been a road block for me lately is social media and my ipad/texting. I've been more intential about my time that I have with my kids. They want me...all of me, and how selfish I have been lately only giving them some of me. It makes me cringe thinking of how many times I have ignored them or made them wait or have made them feel less important because I've been too busy texting or playing a stupid game on the ipad. Luckily my kids are such a great example of what it is to forgive and show me grace. They still love me and want to be with me. I have started reading this amazing parenting book called Grace Based Parenting by Dr Tim Kimmel. LOVE IT and highly recommend it! Anyways, Mav is waking up and I have to go pick the girls up soon, but here's a few pics of life lately...
