“Family”

We had our first day and week of school! We are homeschooling (!!!) this year and it has been quite a journey so far. Tons of up and down, a total roller coaster. Hoping I settle into our new rhythm and find our new normal soon. Some days I can’t believe I’m doing this, but I think for our family, this year it’s the right choice. There are a lot of things I love about it. Just working out the kinks and the anxiety! 

Maeve obviously loves having her sisters around. I think she would find herself feeling lonely and sad without those two each day! 

My darling Holly was baptized and became a member of our church on August 12, 2017. It’s a pretty special thing! We feel grateful for our family and friends who joined us to celebrate and we are grateful for those who celebrated with us from afar. Wishing I had taken a few more deep breaths and enjoyed it a little more. Fortunately I can work on that for the next two baptisms in our family! 

I love Holly and her enthusiasm for life. She’s so positive and loving and fun to be around! She’s a really great kid and the best big sister our family could have. I’m proud of her!

We spent a week at Echo Lake, Montana with Conor’s family. There was so much good in the week. Here are the highlights:

  • Playing with my nieces and nephews
  • Sitting in the lake every afternoon with Maeve
  • Skinny dipping
  • Wake surfing
  • Watching Holly knee board
  • Ripping around on Nathan’s sea doo
  • Catching a minnow with Lola
  • Tubing with Josh
  • Watching relationships between my girls and their cousins grow stronger

Maeve brings us a crazy amount of joy. Everything she does is admired. We all can’t get enough of her. I’m SO glad she’s a part of our family. 

Last week, I took my girls to pick peaches. Oh yum they were delicious! I love heading up to the farmlands north of Spokane for fresh produce. This was a beautiful day! We made a few batches of peach crisp with the peaches and invited friends over to share it with us. It was lovely!
