RUNNING…while Aaron took the kids to get a few special things (wink, wink!). It’s been a struggle to get back at it after so much time off and I am easily frustrated with how out of shape the hospital made me. However, this was my first run with sub-10 minute pace, which is PROGRESS! 🙂
MELTING…over this paper that Brody filled out at me about school. I said, “Brody, you think I’m 22?” He said, “Yeah mom, I really had to guess on that one!” Love that kindergartener!
REPLACING… our roses bushes. After six years, our rose bushes were dead. No green whatsoever. People, we live in the Rose Capitol of Iowa and we need rose bushes that actually produce beautiful roses! Our neighbor, Jon, let Aaron borrow his tractor to get them out.
OBSESSING…over strawberries at our house right now. I can’t buy enough of them. The kids inhale them, which is a good thing.
JUMPING…on the trampoline because it was such a nice day!
READING…I’m trying to do more of it because I enjoy it so much! This is my third book in a pretty short amount of time. I feel like I’m the last one to the party, but I’m hopping on the bandwagon and reading, “Divergent.” I’m about 100 pages in and so far I like it.
CELEBRATING…our family contact for Dance Marathon, Alexandra’s, graduation from Iowa State! She was nice enough to invite us over for her party. It was really nice to meet her family and friends. The good news is that she has a year of grad school, so we get her again next year!
It was a good day. Sunday, Mother’s Day, has been a really good day too. I feel like the luckiest person out there that God chose to bless me with these four incredible kids! I always share this quote on Mother’s Day, because there is so much truth in it…
