Lately-Remember to smile..

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile,
 but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” 
― Thích Nhất Hạnh


-We have enjoyed trips to our local library.  We attend a few of the library programs as well.
-Playing a few audio books for the little ones.-  A drive to the grocery store or a quick trip to the post office. They seem to enjoy this time listening to a story.

-Enjoying more sunny days. When we get sunny days, we really do appreciate them!
-Watching my girls interact with each other. -I absolutely love these moments. Our little one is giggling now and her big sister can't resist giving her sweet kisses all over. -I can't help but to smile!

- I'm running more and staying on track with my workouts. - Trust me it's challenging finding the time and motivation sometimes. I must say I'm pretty darn proud of myself that I've been able to keep it up for a few months now.- Brings a smile to my face just seeing my progress.

-Preparing healthier foods and snacks! - We're enjoying more healthier foods and snacks in our home. Also preparing our lunches ahead of time for the week. -Thank you all who enjoyed my post on the Oat Banana Chocolate Cookies. If you were able to make them, I sure hope you enjoyed them as much as we have! 

-My oldest daughter and I have been enjoying watching a few of the Nature shows on PBS. We just recently watched one on Dogs. 

-Working on a few lessons. I recently checked out a preschool curriculum book. I've been busy working on a few learning charts and fun lessons to do with our oldest daughter during the day.

-Creating art. We've been  creating quite a bit of art in our home. Putting it on display and just sitting back and admiring such beautiful and unique pieces our daughter creates.

Life gets busy. We must always remember to smile.
At times, I feel like my days are hectic. I'm later reminded that these hectic days are spent with the ones I love. -And of course that brings a smile to my face.
