February Sun

We had the most beautiful weather for the Monday holidays in February so of course we had to head to the beach!  The kids had such a great time, everyone was just busy having fun and I had a great time chatting with the mom's. The older boys came up with this game hitting the ball with the boogie boards and also spent some time kicking the volleyball around for a soccer game, they even let Eden play! Tucker is finally not afraid of the water and also spent a lot of time building and digging and playing and Kolby built a sand couch with his friends. The second Monday we had a whole bunch of youth there and the kids were having so much fun that we stayed to see the sunset, it was a great day!

Super Bowl

I was so excited to get to go to a Super Bowl party with fun friends and the kids were even more excited! Eden had fun playing pool with Henry, they were very serious about it and then some other friends too.  The older boys had their turn too and Kolby was really into the game and of course there was a lot of good food!

Mr. Popular

Tucker seems to be Mr. Popular lately!  Not really, but he did get to go hang out with his friend Frankie and play Play Lego Dimensions and eat Cheese Balls, apparently Frankie was stuck at a spot and needed Tucker to help him get past it (which Tucker knew how to do because his brothers looked it up online). His most popular day was Saturday when he got to go to 2 really fun parties.  His friend Seth from church had a Tai Kwan Do party in the daytime and then he got to go see the Monster Truck Jam that night for his friend Ethan's birthday!  Such a great day for Tucker with great friends!

And another friend's birthday at Legoland

Sick selfies

I was really sick for a couple of weeks.  It seemed to come and go and morph into other things.  During this time, I was still doing the Mind, Body, Spirit Challenge.  I was allowed to have one sick day but there was no way I was going to waste it on certain days so I found myself forcing some minimal exercise often to get my daily 30 minutes.  On this particular day I had come back from the church for scouts and mutual so it was already late but I got on the treadmill anyway in my big winter coat with a cough drop in my mouth and walked at only 1 mile/hr.  I spent a good deal of that time trying to take a selfie to kill some of the time.  These are a few that I came up with!

The next day I still had to go to class and I also found out that I needed an ID card to complete some of the assignments.  Feeling miserable, I made the trek to the administration building only to realize that I needed my license which was clear across campus and then back to the building.  Needless to say, I was miserable and tired and had gone to the gym that morning anyway to swim to get my exercise and then stuck my hair in a messy bun and not the cute kind of messy bun, I really messy, tired, straight out bed and pool, sick person bun and then I had to have my picture taken. I just laughed when I saw this picture and had to send it to Sam.  I don't think you can even tell how bad it looks in person from this picture!  I posting it here just to remember that it's not all rosey like a blog often seems.  I was miserable with sickness and I'd also been really struggling with a situation where my feelings had been hurt, like I cried for a whole day straight about it and I still feel crushed but I know it's all a matter of how I choose to react so I'm moving on and there's always a new day, or in this case a new week!
