Sunday after church and naps, we met up with some fam and went into the mountains. We fished, threw rocks, explored, played at the park, walked, and enjoyed this beautiful landscape (on Earth day nonetheless).
A cute moment when I was sitting on the couch reading. I looked over and Capri brought her chair out and just sat on it while she looked around. I asked her what she was doing and she told me she was a mom watching her kids play at the park! CLASSIC! I'm so proud. It's a win win. Independent kids that make friends with everyone and relaxing mom time - that's how i roll.
Then another not so cute mom moment: when you're in the shower and you hear both kids yell "it was an accident". Smashed the play eye-shadow everywhere! They cleaned it all up themselves though so no harm done and I've been wanting to toss that eye shadow anyways.
Another item on my to-do list checked off before the baby comes! Organize and clean our storage unit! YES!
I got my topic for teaching RS on the fourth sunday for the next 6 months.
It really stresses me out that that is the only guidelines I get for 6 one-hour lessons but it's good for me to rely on the Spirit to help me plan and prepare! Some talks I wrote down from last Conference that relate and some ideas. Any ideas or subtopic suggestions are welcome! I have to enter my titled lessons into the ward word doc this week for now until October- so I'm collecting my thoughts and could use all the help I can get!
For FHE this week, we went geocaching by Utah Lake. More exercise than I've gotten in months and it was fun! So beautiful and I think I finally like/get geocaching.
I was the slowest walker for sure though and it showed me how penguin-like I am these days. You know you have problems when your short two-year old is speeding past you. Haha!
Yesterday, a beautiful time at the park rolling down hills and running around the playground!
And last night, we babysat for a couple in the ward while they went on a date. The kids were in heaven! This baby is sturdy and 8 months old but it still blew my mind how much maintenance and different the household is with a baby in the home again! The kids were in heaven and doting on his every squeak and movement!
and the usual baby of the fam (soy boy) had a hard time sharing his toys- it was good for him to have a baby around. we'll see how he does with a newborn haha.
Well..... more to-do list items to get done! Deep clean the fridge and freezer- here I come!
