In one of my favorite books there is a quote from author Anna Quindlen (and I may have mentioned this one before) on mistakes she made while raising her babies, in it she says:
"The biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make...I did not live in the moment enough. There is one picture of the three of my children sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in such a hurry to get on to the next thing: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less"
Super inspiring!!! So from now on I just want to post a little more about our everyday!
He's been trying to let go and balance a bit


She has been reading NON-stop (and I love it)


He can't seem to not hurt himself every 30 minutes


She is getting even sillier and wants to be at mom's heals


The Mrs. has been spoiled by the Mr. with fancy treats and she needs to rethink getting her gym membership

We have been working on reading scriptures as a family, trying not to say poop at the dinner table, deep cleaning each room, and trying to force myself to be more domestic by making more meals from scratch. Pioneer Woman is my homegirl!

Jaime you are my favorite mommy ever...I am so inspired by your posts and your dedication to your little ones. I wish we lived closer so I could LEARN more from you, but thank you for posting your blogs because that helps too. Love you!

I love Sawyer's curly hair, and where did Scott get that dessert from??? I like hearing all of the mundane details!!

Jaime said...
