You know how life gets so full that you begin to let things go? well that is this blog. And truthfully, I don't think of it as a bad thing. I am sorry that I haven't posted more, more often this month...but I'm so grateful for the blessings that I have been enjoying. I believe I actually started a post that I never finished for being interrupted that was just a simple list of all the things I was cultivating in my life right now. I will post some of those things here.

I suppose this post is about priorities. About not having enough time in your day to get it all done. Having to chose what gets done and in which order.

We have been cultivating relationships this month. First with J's family, then with mine, then with our pseudo family here in G'ville and with eachother. We had a lovely visit with the Bham family. Easter egg hunts, playtime with Cousin B, lots of good food. Then we made a quick trip to NC to see my FOO (Family of Origin). Always love playing with Cuz and spending time with Nani and Pop. Got a good bit of simple sewing projects done. Didn't get much sleep though!

We missed out family friends here Aunt B and R Piecie. Lots of playing and sharing of germs left us fighting pink eye, sinus infection, and finally just a good solid case of hay fever/allergies. We are enjoying our last bit of school and getting ready for dance recital. Tomorrow we will enjoy a visit from our other "Aunt" Aly from Cali! Can't wait! And then off to Aunt Minnahs for the Auburn City Fest.

After our last traveling car sickness incident, we will be bringing some dramamine! And making sure to leave when the kids are sleepy! What a day that was. So we have a lot on our plate right now.

J is turning 30 next week (and so is aunt al). W will be an official 10 month old next week and has a dr. visit. He is full of curls, has a louder scream than his sis ever did and can army crawl like a mad man. His temper will be something of force to reckon with. Think we may have to start implementing time out in his little bed to help curb his reactions. He gets up on those knees to crawl sometimes, but he hasn't go the hang of that yet. He eats an unbelievable amount most days! It really is jaw-dropping! And he makes the prettiest pics ever! Will be sure to post some on his 10 month date!

Been enjoying my husband in new ways lately and I am just so thankful that life and marriage is so great even after nearly 8 years and 2 kids! Hope it only gets better!

So if you don't hear from me for awhile, know that it's for cultivating the best things in my life. And who wouldn't want that?
