Late Nights

It's late and I really should be in bed. Instead, I am up, enjoying the quiet and thinking about how tomorrow a very special girl turns 7! I am also thinking about the fact that we have several dentist appointments first thing in the morning, which is never fun. But I am thankful that we are able to go and that the kids have healthy teeth! Afterwards we will take the birthday girl to lunch and wherever else her sweet heart desires! My dear baby will be up early for sure, he is training to become a Ninja Turtle and an early breakfast is a must!

Working Out

It seems like no matter what kind of diet plan I try to follow, I always experience short term weight loss followed by gaining all of the weight and then some, back. It is a frustrating process than I am very tired of. One mistake I have made was quitting exercising. As a family yet have now been regularly exercising for 3 months. It feels great. We have variety in what we do from walks, the gym, swimming, and work out dvd's.  Our diet is better but certainly not perfect. The weightloss results have been slower, but I am happy to be making changes that will last!

Starting to Harvest

Yeah, I know harvest is quite the stretch, but we are actually growing things. It has been a long time since we have been able to have a garden, so this is pretty exciting stuff!

Summer Nights

Softball is winding down. The girls have three more games left. It has been such a joy to spend a couple of summer evenings a week at the ball park. Even the little ones sit so patiently on the bleachers watching the games. The weather tonight was cool and beautiful. Both girls got to try out a few new positions which was fun for them. I think we all agree this has been an enjoyable season!

Garden Update

The good news about all the rain, is the garden is exploding. We have more tomatoes than I can count and pumpkin, peppers, and squash are coming along nicely. I haven't been able to weed because the rain just won't stop long enough!
