Brielle and Finnella looking for books on CD I haven’t blogged for six months! I have lots of good reasons/excuses, depending on how you look at it. But I miss it and I enjoy it and I am doing it for me, so I’m back! It’s hard to let go of expectations–like how blogging has Carry on!
I’m always curious about the average person’s daily life. I found an amazing video on Netflix titled Life in a Day. It is a documentary of snippets of people’s lives all over the world. It’s a bit of time capsule. It was beautiful. It inspired me to make one of my own. I have done Carry on!
July is usually pretty busy for us, but this July has been even more so. We had three weeks of swimming lessons. We had Kevin, Cadrian and Aviana’s birthdays. I was on call for a couple of births, one of which was a totally and completely amazing. I went to a city a few hours Carry on!
Passion really is better than coffee. It’s a DRINK! Get your mind out of the gutter. Only one out of five screaming and neck clinging when I dropped them off at Grandma’s. We’re getting better. Hey! I’m not late! Getting fillings isn’t so bad when you can watch The Princess Bride. Never had a leg Carry on!
6 a.m. Kevin’s alarm goes off. He has to go out and load cattle he’s selling today. Last calf finally born in the night. 107 lb bull calf. Helped it get nursing. 6:15: Hear 20 month old Elivette. She’s at the top of the stairs crying instead of just coming down to our room like Carry on!

Golly! Saturday morning dawned sunshiney full of potential. After going to the bank for Kevin, dropping Brielle off to spend some time with her aunt, getting gas and coffee, we arrived at our first service project. Our church was doing scads of projects all over town, ranging from planting flowers to welcoming refugees to packing Carry on!
And on top of everything else, a migraine. Incapacitated another night. Another night when Kevin picks up my slack. Another night when the children watch an hour of Sesame Street instead of doing something more constructive and less passive. Another night when I’m not the mama God created me to be. Another night when I Carry on!
It has been a busy month. I wish I could blog every day because so much happens that I want to share with others or even just keep for myself for the future. I love looking back at my old posts and rediscovering those moments. I love reminiscing happenings I had long forgotten. I want Carry on!
So that little girl yesterday, stomping and crying and kicking the door and screaming at the top of her lungs? In church? Not even our church? That was mine. So that little boy this morning, who was wandering around with his goods swinging free, because he threw his pants and undies down from the balcony Carry on!
