Time


Simone will be 5 in four weeks, this photo was taken today and Sophie Wei is 3.5 years old, this photo below was taken a week ago.

There never seems to be enough time to do every thing there needs to be done.

We have been so busy that it has been hard to catch up with just daily chores, fitting in work outs and not as much family time as we would like. We have also been trying to decide if we should sell our house and move???

Because of all of this time spent on things that need to be done and some that do not we have been trying to sit back and remember what is important.

Time together and the memories we share. Let me tell you it feels good!

Yesterday we just stayed in our PJ's all morning, cleaned up a bit. Then Sara and Emma came over for a visit while Scott and Becca prepared for Sara's party..... We just played, played, laughed and had a nail party! It was SO MUCH FUN!! While we were sitting at the table I asked the girls, "what do you like to do?"

Simone replies first while waving her hands in a circular motion, "this, doing this what we are doing right now, being together, time together!" I started to tear up because I love it too sweet girl.

Then we went to Sara's Fancy Birthday Party today and had a blast. So much fun that Simone did not want to leave, we spent the whole afternoon there........I also spend time at my friend Jeni's house visiting with friends Saturday night, not having to be in a hurry.

I know we have about 1.5 months left of busy times especially for Rick since he has two cross country meets this month, has to finish up his schooling/homework for the National Board Certification and then exam. Do you ever feel like you have so much to do and not enough time?

So for now a little less time checking and looking on face book (although it is so much fun connecting with everyone and old friends), worrying about what our next house will be like or would this one ever sell.....booking our selves so solid that we do not have any down time. Don't get me wrong, I do feel blessed that we have so much to do but we just need to live in the moment, do a little less and spend TIME together enjoying the little things like being together and more time staying in our PJ's all day.

Time it can go so quickly.

Remember to take the TIME in the next few weeks.

For fun I do get to take one of my best friends out to dinner for her Birthday, YAH Rachel!! Yummy!!

I am also starting Jump Rope For Heart at my school at the end of this month and I love the community service and educational part of this. It is one of my favorites.

The girls and I are also really excited to help Rick out for his cross country meet that he is hosting at his school this weekend! It is going to be exciting, maybe Simone might even run half of it....

The Time we have together is such a blessing!

What are you doing with your time?

During the week we don't have much time, but on the weekends the girls love to go to the pet store with us and a park. We also painted nails on Saturday.

I am trying to do so many things at once now. There seems to be just enough time for everything I need to do...but no time for me. But that is motherhood for you and I would never want it any other way. Well...a pedicure would be fabulous.
Have a great week!
