Ice Skating!

I've never been ice skating before...well until now.  We took the kids skating to celebrate Kynlee's 5th birthday and just hang out.  We had a GREAT time and the kids jumped right on the ice like pros!  Even though it was about 60 degrees outside and we quickly took off our coats it was lots of fun and we will definitely go back next year!

Back to normal.

It's been a busy week.  The kids and hubby's first full week back to school and work and my classes began this week too.  By mid week we had grumpy kids, exhausted parents, and laundry piled high.  Just a typical week.  Thankfully it was filled with good food, dinners with friends, lunch with my mom, working out, LifeGroup with my awesome High Rockers, a wine tasting date with my hubby, and ended on a high note tonight with our Saturday service at church.  I'm so thankful to such an amazing group of people in my life!

So taking a cue from my friend are my weekly Random Thoughts.

  • Spending time with those you love is priceless.
  • Don't be afraid to stand up for yourself...don't let anyone bully you.
  • Choose your own path.  Don't stand in the shadows.
  • Spending quality time with my hubby is important.
  • Staying caught up on the laundry is nothing short of a miracle.
  • Volunteering is very important to me.  
  • I love menu planning.
  • I love it when I find things I bought and forgot about buying them!  It's like Christmas!
  • Don't underestimate your kids.  They will surprise you everyday.
  • Even on the bad days...I'm so blessed to have my amazing boys.
