After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

Lake, Lake, Lake

That's what we did this weekend.
Once a year my Uncle and his family join us on the lake we live near for a few days of fun on his Waverunner.  Here's my cousin, Alex, with Kian.

The kids like to inner tube and go for rides on the Waverunner, but they're more than happy to just play in the water and float around as well.

I loved seeing my kids have fun on the inner tube, but I think floating around is what I prefer, so I'm glad they like it too.
I have problems worrying too much out on the open lake with lots of other boaters jetting by.  :)

We were pretty tired after a few days on the lake in the HOT sun, and we wanted to make EXTRA sure the kids were worn out tonight as none of us have been sleeping well around here.  So Zac set up a pile of cushions and pillows in front of a stool and the kids had a blast exerting any last bit of energy before bed.

Yep, even I got in on it......and was reminded that my body is feeling a bit older this year.  :(

The kids went right to sleep.  :)
Here's hoping they sleep all night!
