Bikes, Forts, and Daddy

Being a mother is one of the highest salaried jobs in my field since the payment is pure love.~ Mildred B. Vermont
Life has seemed busy at home since both the kids get to spend every waking moment with me.  But I do love it.  As much as I'm dying for some alone time by the end of the day, sometimes I want to go in and wake them up just so they can be with us.  I know - pitiful!

My First 5K and the Journey to Get There

I am feeling very much accomplished today.  Not solely through my own doing, but through a spirit of strength and determination given by God, the encouragement of my husband, family, and friends, and the fact that I set a goal, worked hard, and achieved it.

I finished my first 5K today.  I had no time goal.  My only goal was to be able to run the whole thing without walking.  Going from a person who hated running to a person who could run an entire 5k was, to me, a big feat.

I'm back!

I have been MIA for a while now - a result of a packed schedule and little time to sit down and gather and organize my thoughts into blog worthy entries. 

What's been happening on our end of the world?  Lots!

The most exciting news of the latest happenings is that we have new neighbors!  We are so excited to have some of our family from KB's side moving close by to us in the near future.
