Every week, I think I am going to have time to blog a couple 2 or 3 times. Remember when I had time for that?
Then my week takes off and I don’t have the time.
Life is a changing… my kids are keeping my sooo busy.
I am actually speaking at a church event tonight about the importance of journaling.
This might be the push I need to get back here more often; I feel like I am saying this too often. I just need to make the time.
I am a true believer in the importance of keeping a journal.
Here is what my journal would say today:
May 7, 2014
Today is a rainy, rainy day. It is a gloomy yucky day.
I bought myself this hydrangea for Mother’s Day.
It helps on a rainy day.
I am looking forward to planting some flowers in my yard.
Jonathan spent all day Monday working in the yard.
I spent all day painting the house.
House projects never seem to end.
I’m not complaining. I am grateful to have a house and projects to fill my days.
My two oldest kids are sick today. I had a busy day planned but, when your kids get sick your day automatically changes.
I’m kind of grateful for the chance to slow down.
I can’t stop smiling about the cutest opera I attended last week.
Isaac shared the leading role of Mr. Duck with 3 other boys.
My favorite part about the opera was that it was written by these cute little Kindergartners.
I laughed at the story they came up with of animals wanting to use the Duck’s pond to play volleyball.
Kindergartners writing an opera; what a brilliant idea!
If we all looked at the world as innocently as children; how beautiful life would be.
I am thankful for good teachers who put so much love into teaching my children.
Baseball season is in full swing at our house.
Jex started a few months ago playing in an accelerated league; and now his games have begun.
These photos are from his first game.
Jex also started his city league this week and will have a practice or a game almost every night during the week.
Isaac is also playing city league; and this mister:
plays his first game with the big team in the valley; the Smithfield Blue Sox.
Jex’s accelerated team is also called the Blue Sox.
Thankfully, I can support Jex and Jonathan in the same t-shirt.
When it’s baseball season, we all enjoy going to the games as a family.
Well, Stella puts up with it.
I love baseball season.
There is no place I would rather be than at the ballpark.
…and that’s what I am thinking about today.
