Moving Forward

These last few weeks have been exhausting. After being on vacation for so long, it's been tricky to readjust to coming back to work, plus there has been so much sadness lately. I think I need to take a step back and focus on what's most important to me: family, friends, being healthy, and feeling productive in life/at work. I can't let all of the other "stuff" suck me in.

I'm pretty sure that I'm one of the last people around who hasn't read any of the Harry Potter books or seen the movies.  I decided to take the plunge and join the masses. Since Ava is such an avid reader, I decided to make the investment to buy all of the books, so she can read them, as well. I'm almost done with book 4, while Ava is working on book 1. G seems fascinated as books as well, but he may have a few years before he'll be able to follow along!

One of my sweet co-workers has been buying Ava super cute socks at Target. We were discussing how the socks in the dollar bins were always for toddlers or adults...never for kids. But, she managed to find some at her Target, so she picked some up for us. They are so adorable...I wish they came in adult sizes!

Who wouldn't love unicorns and hearts!?

Scott has been busy framing our basement, and he's hoping to get some sheet rock up today. I like the way the plans are coming will be great to have an extra space where we can have the kids play and hang out and be as loud as they want! Plus, we're working on converting our guest room to an upstairs movie/play room so they can hang out up there, too. (It sounds like we're working on ways to segregate ourselves from the kids, doesn't it?!)

We have so much positivity in our lives. I need to focus on those things to help get through the recent darkness. May you have a blessed week!
