Anyone feel like all of a sudden you were at the pool (er, I mean back yard sprinkler) and then the next weekend there were football games?
Roz started Kindergarten a few weeks ago already and really loves it. She even has her first wiggly tooth! Johnny tried to convince her to let him pull it out, although I'm not sure it's wiggly enough to be pulled - nor do I want her to ask me to do it - yuck!
I turned 32 this weekend and I don't think I'm even sad about it - life is pretty good. Although lately I've had these weird "what if" thoughts: "what if I get cancer, what if the kids get hurt, what if Johnny gets in an accident." Anyone else feel like that sometimes? I know my mom is reading this - sorry :)
I'd just like to put us all in helmets and bubbles, that should do the trick.
Just checking in with a few updates since last time, I need to put a sleepy girl to bed.
Throughout the past week I'd thought about this post and everything I could included in it - but I'm learning that I should've kept notes because I can't remember anything. I'll give it my best shot!
1. Beachbody On Demand (BOD): this program has been so fantastic for me and challenging me to try new things. Let me back up, BOD is an online platform with multiple types of workouts for anyone and all that can be done at home. I also try (emphasis on try) to follow the eating recommendations they have, essentially it's taught me how to eat a balanced, clean diet. It's been so much fun learning new ideas and how to eat while still enjoying life.
2. Bible Study: What a great group of ladies that know so much more than I do, but they've welcomed me in to learn more. I've even allowed myself to consider one day going on a mission trip to Uganda with them, although I may not go soon, I've started learning about what the trip would mean.
July has been good to us - what fun month of birthday parties, grilling and bonfires. Roz had her birthday backyard pool party last weekend! I admit I went overboard with buying a pinata and water balloons and nervously fluttering around the house the morning of her party concerned about other parents thoughts on our house (a thought that never seems to leave my mind, I know we have a nice clean home, nevertheless...)
Pictures from her party:
I think my favorite thing about Roz are our bedtime conversations about God and Grandma Boots - she picks up on a lot I didn't realize. She tells me about her prayers and asks the sweetest questions. This is why five is fun, of course she can be a stinker 9 times out of 10, but she's getting to an age that we get to watch her really begin to learn and show interest in different things.
July also brought an end to t-ball (gosh that was fun!), lots of birthday parties (two this weekend) and farmer's markets.
