Good days.

We have had a wonderful week. 
Yesterday we attended the Magic Bunny show at our local library. 
This show included comedy, magic tricks and cute little bunnies.- And a few birds. 
Children gathered around and giggled and participated in this cute little performance. 
We enjoyed our time.

Today, instead of focusing so much on lessons we made sure to have a little fun. 
We worked on a fun science experiment on clouds and rain.
 Writing down our observations and just enjoying our time at home. 
I like days where we set our lessons aside for the week and enjoy a little free time. 
So today, we are enjoying some play dress up, baking pretend cakes and dance parties.
 - Happy Friday to all!

Welcome Spring. -Currently..












I'm thrilled to have this beautiful weather around!  We welcomed spring with clear skies and weather in the upper 60's. I was able to open all windows and let in some fresh air. - Ah, refreshing. 

Currently-

- Finishing up this weeks lessons with my oldest daughter. Reading, math, shapes and the letter G. She's doing great and we're so proud of her.

-My husband and oldest daughter have been working on a few science labs for his chemistry class. 

-Picking out new paint colors and decorations for the girl's bathroom. I'm kind of in the mood for repainting and sprucing this space up. 

-Taking down our St. Patrick's day decorations. Our oldest made a few shamrocks using- water paint, coloring pencils and glitter. 

-Enjoying our trips back to the library. I hadn't been going for some time. We eventually made our way back this week and our daughter met a few new friends. She's so excited about her new friends! 

-Enjoying this stage with our little one. She's 6 months and exploring like crazy. I'm really taking it all in and enjoying every minute of this.

-I purchased some new sheets and absolutely love the design. - I absolutely love making the beds in the morning! 

-Admiring art.

It has been a great week and I really hope the same for all of you. If this beautiful weather sticks around we'll be hiking, exploring and of course I'll be gardening very soon. -Ah, spring is here. 

Hello and welcome new readers! I'm so happy to have you here with me on my blogging journey.

The beautiful outdoors.







 “Is the spring coming?" he said. "What is it like?"...
"It is the sun shining on the rain and the rain falling on the sunshine...” 
― Frances Hodgson BurnettThe Secret Garden

This week- the weather was beautiful. The sun was out and it was definitely time to plan a trip outdoors. Just us, together. The air was fresh and my thoughts were clear.- It was beautiful. We took a long nature walk and explored. We talked about woodpeckers, frogs, ducks and much more. Now that the weather is nicer out, the park is filled with kids running, playing and jumping.- Clearly they're  filled with excitement. I think I needed this long nature walk.  Just us, fresh air and time to clear my thoughts. I feel rejuvenated and ready to embrace this warmer weather.

There will be days..


There will be days...

When everything slows down.
You just don't feel the same.- And still you manage to wear a smile on your face.
Tired, sick, confused and helpless...

We recently found out that a very good friend of ours has passed away.- She was only 31 and passed away in such a tragic situation.  I honestly can't explain the feeling I had when I found out this terrible news. - I was filled with so many emotions. We had great memories. And the last time we spoke was right after our second daughter was born. (September ,2014).

I've been trying to look at all the great memories we had as friends. She was a gentle soul. A mother of three beautiful boys and would do anything for anyone in need. I'm so thankful to have known such a wonderful individual.

There will be days..

When nothing seems to make sense. -You'll soon realize..hey that's life and that's normally how it goes. I'm extremely grateful for this life. I'll hold my children a little longer tonight. I'll make sure to tell everyone how much they truly mean to me. -There's no holding back!  

There will be days..

When you realize that it is okay to cry. -Chin up, there will definitely be better days.

“Today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well therefore to this day.”

Maybe..

Maybe we should...
Dream more.
Love more.
Be  more available to our love ones.  
Smile often. - Smiles truly are beautiful. 
Meet a friend for lunch.- Remember before computers and cell phones.. people actually met up.
Capture the littlest moments. - Those always turn out to be the biggest! 
Be more appreciative.
Build each other up.
Make room for improvements
Be more positive. -Believe in yourself more! It's amazing what we are capable of when we believe in ourselves.
Try something new. - We're never to old and it's never to late to try something new. -Go for it!
Walk away from toxic relationships. - Seriously if you're trying to live a positive life. You really have to let go of those toxic relationships.
Embrace each moment, take it all in and experience it to the fullest. 
Just breathe.

This week.

This week:

-The sun was shining. It was beautiful out. I think this may be the last week that I am able to enjoy my valentine flowers. I've been giving them as much sunlight as possible. 

-This week we worked on lessons with our oldest daughter. She's currently counting to one hundred and writing her own name. She's been writing her name for some time now. But what amazes us now is that she does it without us helping her. -I swear I tell her to slow down and stop growing. Our littlest one is now 5 months. She's rolling all over the place!

-We took a trip to our local library. We checked out a few books and attended a few events. We're currently listening to the audio book- Caps for sale. 

-I purchased a new nail color a week or so ago. When I have some time to myself; soaking my feet and painting my nails is something I enjoy doing. 

- I took a week off from working out. Truthfully, my motivation and all willingness had gone away. I'm back at it now and it feels great. We all need a break from time to time. 

- I roasted some vegetables. I added them to our lunches. My favorite is roasted peppers. The house  smells amazing and it just tastes so good! 

It's been a very productive week.   I hope you have all enjoyed your week as well. We'll be staying indoors this weekend. We're being told that a winter storm is headed our way. I hope you all have a beautiful weekend.
