In many ways I am totally not the “keeping up with the Jones’ type” In many ways, much to my dismay, I am…. I am totally cool with driving my sloppy jalopy, I treasure my garage sale finds. I hate buying “new” clothes! I feel like buying used is the only way to go. I am not kidding I love, love my used clothes!!!
But I am struggling with this digital life, it is a whole new avenue of “keeping up” and in order to do so you have to be smart, creative, entertaining, in most cases have an amazing cute product to sell. I feel like I have been banging my head up against my screen trying to force “cuteness” and trying to reach in and find my creative soul… And then I get “smart smoke” rising from my head… NO JOKE! I love to blog, I love reading and looking at other women’s’ blogs. I love that from one little laptop I can learn just about anything, and share everything. But I hate feeling like I am not good enough. It is like a woman’s curse… or maybe it is just a Rach curse. I want to be Totally awesome at everything I do. And when I am not, I tend to beat up on myself.
I am done… I am so super done with feeling inferior to MYSELF. So where does this leave me… I am learning that in life many aspects are meant to be for the enjoyment of one. That one being me. I am going to work hard at enjoying the things that bring me joy. And spend time rejoicing for all the Mommy blogs out there that totally rock!
Remember the show kids say the darnedest things? I think I would rename it to MOMMY’s say the darnedest things… after our sweet babies do the darnedest things. I have come to the realization the our kids must do weird and sometime upsetting things so we have “forever” memories. Tonight I will never forget my sweet cousin trying to tame her mane… We live in Texas after all us girls with curls have to “maintain”. I promise she never thought she would be maintaining her mane with PEE!!! No joke, of course the first thing I said was… I am so going to blog about this!
I am sure she is not the only one out there that has had a run in with something super gross… I have a hundred stories and the only reason why is because the things our kids do will forever make a memory. Good bad or indifferent… it is a good reminder to laugh at things a little more.
Number one boy rule is …if you do pee in a bottle you MUST tell your mommy.
I am so very thankful for all of the “safety” prayers… The kids had an amazing time at all the camps that they have gone to in the last two weeks…. The only injury was a humongous splinter that Ty got by having way to much fun on the playground! The day camp was held at Reunion Ranch, in Georgetown Texas . This camp was absolutely great. So many different things for the kids to do each day. I totally want to hold a family Reunion here!! The kids enjoyed Football and Cheer camp held by Round Rock Pop Warner… Sadly I did not get images from football or cheer camp (insert sad face) But they both had an so much fun. This week the kids went to VBS ( vacation bible school) at our church First Baptist Church Round Rock . VBS was simply just incredible. We are so blessed to be in a church body that serves our kids with such a spirit of Joy, and love. I am so thankful! I can hardly believe that after the winter Minnie endured that she has had such a blessed, BUSY and super fun summer! I am so filled with JOY seeing my kids play… lead… and learn together. This summer has definitely been one full of smiles!
I hope you enjoy seeing some of the pictures of our kids having a Super fabulous time!
