Proud Moma

The past couple of weeks have been crazy. Mason is playing football for the first time and Malley is cheering for the third year. Both have practice twice a week and 2 games a week on top of Karate, ballet, gymnastics, piano and homework. I am exhausted! When is it to much? I have always struggled with this, I don't want to deny them any opportunities but...Looking for some advice. With that said, I am very proud of M and M they are fabulous children who for the most part do all this very well. As busy as they stay they are continuing to do wonderfully in school, report cards when out this week and both are truly excelling (I'm just thankful that they get their brains and their looks for the dad).

Well, this is us and our crazy life. Shana used this in her blog and I loved it "Busy and Boring" that's us as well.

I love seeing Malley & Mason at my alma mater doing the same things my brother and I did. I will admit, however, they are way cuter doing it. (No big bangs here!)

Mighty cute they are. Mighty cute indeed!

Those are the cutest little uniforms on the cutest kids. I bet you guys are having so much fun watching them do "their things".

Great post! The kids look wonderful and they DO get their looks from YOU too!

We were that busy last Fall and this year, we had to cut back some so that we could build in some downtime with our family. We still do TOO much I feel, but it is 1/2 of what your busy week looks like! I listened to a session from Andy Stanley on this and it really spoke to my heart to slow down and focus concentrated time and energy on my children and less on running around doing, doing, doing. Now, I still struggle with it and I still want them to BE IN EVERYTHING so that they have opportunities. But, I am working on redefining what an "opportunity" actually means to our family! Still struggling with it, but this is just my 2 cents worth! M & M look wonderful!!

Also, TAG You are IT!! Go read my latest blog post to see what I am talking about!

Love you sister! It was great to see you on Sunday and I missed you last night!!

Love you,
