Can you believe the first quarter of the year is almost over?!?! Time is truly flying by but that must be because I’m enjoying every moment of life. Here are some great things that have happened to me during the first quarter of 2014.
First, as a family we’ve enjoyed getting to know our newest member. Our youngest is now 4 months and he is so much fun. We enjoy loving him and are still amazed about his surprise arrival.
Second, our homeschool made it through new baby boot camp and we are back to our normal schedule. I’m so appreciative of all the advice I received about how to teach with a newborn. The best advice was to enjoy the baby, which is what we did. Of course it was hard at first but things did get easier as time progressed. Now he even sits in the classroom with us.
Third, I enjoyed a fun night out with my friends. We attended a concert for one of my best friend’s birthdays. I enjoyed the event but I did call and check on my three kings constantly. Daddy survived his first time keeping two rather than one and told me to “stop calling and enjoy myself.” Check out my blonde hair and gold makeup.
Fourth, my family has continued our commitment to fitness. We’ve been walking to the park several times a week, we play family basketball, race each other, do jumping jacks, etc. It feels great to enjoy the outdoors together. I also find that exercising together makes it more enjoyable for me.
Fifth, I decided to laugh more often. I saw this tweet from UberFacts
@UberFacts tweeted at 9:17pm – 14 Mar 14: Children laugh an average of 400 times a day, while adults laugh about 15 times a day. This saddened me and I made it my mission to truly LOL a lot more. If I find it funny I don’t giggle, I literally laugh out loud. This has made me feel great. I suggest you try it. My children will not out laugh me. Even typing that last sentence made me laugh.
There are so many great things that happened to me and my family during the first quarter of this year. In life it is easy to focus on the bad things for an extended time and briefly enjoy the good things. I’m not doing that anymore. Life is too short to skim over the great things.

Make this week grand,
