Learn, Grow, Enjoy

That has been my motto this year. I always set many goals because that is what keeps me going. I enjoy checking things off and seeing progress. This has been a great few months for me as a mom. Dallin is loving school, Emily is getting closer to fully potty trained (don't jinx it), and I am thoroughly enjoy my little Bryce man. I feel like I have come out of a big fog and things are finally falling into place. The biggest thing I am trying to learn is that when things don't go well it doesn't have to be the end of the world. I need to take the good with the bad.

Here are some pics from our beach trip in January. We had a last minute invite from great friends and had a fabulous time! I didn't realize that I didn't post about it.



We were lucky enough to have a visitor last week. We loved having Jeff's brother, Rob in town!! It was fun to see Jeff and Rob together. We hope he will visit again soon and bring the rest of the family!
Emily is a sweet, loving, fun little girl...

...who loves to stash things in purses. This is what she dumped out the other day.

Some of my favorite things about Bryce: he is very proud of himself when we figure out what he is trying to say. His language is really taking off and I am loving it! He is much happier now that he can communicate. (Which makes for a much happier mom!) I enjoy library time with him and watching him start to venture off my lap.




For St. Patrick's Day I wanted to have a little fun with my kids. They had fun with the green eggs and Lucky Charms.
I copied this idea from a blog by a cyber friend I really admire.
I have been trying to upload a video, but it didn't work, so here is my update!!

My focus right now is back to getting sleep. So, I am still trying to limit my computer list. I did get back on Facebook, but only for a few minutes at a time. I like feeling connected, but I also like feeling balanced.

Thanks for checking in!

Such cute photos Kelly. Glad you're feeling good about motherhood and such. And getting more sleep will only help!

I can't believe it was that warm in January, nice! Look how cute the W family is, it's been a long time! And, of course, you are all darling as always.

So fun to hear from you......

The training was going well, until today..... It was horrible weather today so I am completely wiped out after 13.1 - Hopefully the next two weeks will get better before SLC. I am so excited to race again.

Thanks for coming by the blog!
