What’s Happening Over This Way

I’ve been a bad, bad blogger.

The girls are out of school and I must say…any free time I pretended to have, is now gone. We’re having a blast though. I love not having to get up at 6 am & do the morning rush to school.


So here’s what’s been happening this way~~

  • Swim lessons, softball, and Taekwondo are keeping me on the road a lot.
  • Speaking of swim lessons, I’m so proud of Sassypants. She is so brave and facing her fear of water.
  • I vowed to not overbook our family this summer. We’ve had some days when we’ve stayed in our pajamas all day, and I love it!!
  • Miss Bookworm is reading, reading, reading.
  • I’m still working out with my wonderful trainer. I’m down 6 lbs. and actually enjoy working out now. (Wait, did I just say that?)
  • I started volunteering in the 3rd-5th grade children’s service at our church. It’s so rewarding. God gave me a heart to reach out to that little boy or girl that is shy and having a hard time meeting new friends. I remember being an awkward 8 year old with no confidence.  I want greatly to help them feel comfortable and welcome.  Isn’t that the way church should be???
  • My sweet hubby is taking Taekwondo with Bookworm.  He had years of classes growing up, but it’s precious to watch him take the Basic class with her.
  • I’m in full-on MacGyver cleaning mode. As you can tell by my previous posts, I’m cleaning out closets. The sad part…..there’s 10x more, but I would spend my whole summer photographing and posting everything.  I can’t believe how much stuff I’ve kept through the years. 
  • We’re going on vacation to Hawks’ Cay! Happy dance with a booty pop. Hawks Cay Resort       I’ve never been to the Keys, and from what I hear, we’re in for a treat. Doc’s brother and his wife will be there for a few days of our trip, which is great because we hardly get to see them anymore:-(
  • More than anything, I’m enjoying temperatures above freezing. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the cold weather here!

How’s your summer going?


  1. D-I am sooo glad Sassypants is doing so well!!and yes you are in for a treat in the keys! Just remember it really is North Cuba!! But you will love it , btw the resort you have chosen looks wonderful! Have fun!

  2. You guys are busy! But isn't that what summers are for??

    Vacation in the keys sounds like fun. I've never been either, but I've never heard anything bad. I'm sure it'll be a wonderful vacation!
