It's officially summer which means I've spent this week floundering and feeling like I've never parented before as we all try and adjust to a new schedule. But we have had some fun already, so I feel like I'm doing an OK job so far.
For Memorial Day we didn't do anything. Cory worked. Story of my life. I did however tackle my first MURPH workout at Crossfit.
I was bummed Cory worked but holidays come with good pay, which means more money for our Disneyland trip coming up in September. Oh wait, did I mention at all that WE'RE FINALLY GOING TO DISNEYLAND IN SEPTEMBER??!! I'm just a tad excited. So are the girls. I'm still not entirely sure they even know what Disneyland is... but Kennedy talked about it on all her school work and we keep watching videos on Youtube of the rides. We are ready!
Anyway, back to my post...
MURPH was super hard and made me lay around the rest of the day with no energy. The girls fed on that like little demons.
I am loving Crossfit you guys. I have found my niche more than I can even say. I walk into this place every day and have never been so excited to feel pain. It's only been 2 months and I can already see changes in my strength. I love it!!
I may have also failed to mention that we live in absolutely the BEST neighborhood. Ok, I'm pretty sure I've mentioned it before, but it's worth saying again. THESE PEOPLE ARE SO AMAZING!!! One family threw a "school's-out" party for everyone with bounce houses, pizza, and treats galore. Everyone had a total blast, especially the kids.
I tried to start off summer right last week and go for a hike. In Utah, we have this brief, usually week-long "sweet spot" when it comes to our mountains. It stops raining long enough for the trees and grass to turn super green before the heat hits and they turn brown and ugly. So I knew we needed to get out ASAP. Cory was working so I decided to be brave and try taking the kids without him. My brother and his daughter came along for the adventure. I kid you not, we made it less than 5 minutes (I kept track) before the girls were whining that their legs were tired and they were hungry. Not even 12 minutes in we already had to veer off into the trees so someone could go potty.
I'll just leave this right here.
I should win the parenting award because I actually got my girls in swim lessons this summer. They're only 4 and 6 so... I'm pretty on top of it. *sarcasm* But for real, it was way past time, so they've been taking those for the first two weeks of summer. They're loving them so far.
Alrighty then. Carry on.
I love my husband and all, but when it comes to certain things he can be tad dramatic. Like when the kids spill something and its "everywhere", it's usually not bad. When Kennedy gets "soaked", she usually has a small wet spot somewhere on her clothes. So after I heard about the bad blowout Logan had the other day while I ran to the store that "just got everywhere", I decided to check the laundry...
Some other summer-fun to note:
Wearing goggles around the house to protect your eyes from air.
And trying to hang out with friends as much as time allows. Today we took bikes and scooters to the Lagoon trail and had fun looking at things and yelling at everyone to stay where we could see them. Good times.
