I don’t watch a lot of late-night television but every once in a while I’ll catch an episode of Jimmy Fallon. This water war with Jason Momoa was hysterical …

Resolution Update | April + May 2018

{ Kamden at Fort Worth Zoo }

You guys, I can finally BREATHE!!!!! I’ve been going nonstop since September but I intentionally did NOT plan anything for the next three months so I can spend quality time with Husband, Kamden, family and friends. As of last Sunday, I’m officially in a Season of REST and I’m not apologizing for it. Kamden and I skipped church to spend the day at the Fort Worth Zoo and he had a blast at the splash pad.

I’ve obviously neglected this blog for months on end but I’m hoping to share some heart stories this summer. I’ve got a lot I need to get on paper (or on the screen). As for my resolutions in April and May, you’re guess is good as mine … let’s see what I’ve been able to accomplish:

Kamden and I will be traveling this summer and I’m seriously considering getting him a tablet to expand his desire to read and listen to music.

Speaking of reading, Kamden and I are tackling this summer reading list

While I did not get up early to watch The Royal Wedding, I have watched and listened to Bishop Curry’s profound sermon no less than a dozen times. It’s powerful. It’s poignant. And it’s The Gospel.

It’s sad to me that cursive writing is becoming some secret code but this school is teaching students a valuable skill while building inter-generational relationships …
