Yesterday was a crazy day, and therefore I never got around to the blog. The day was a good kind of crazy though, as the whole first part was filled with “me time”! I fully believe it is so important for any mom, whether she has 1 child or a house-full, to find some sort of “me time”. It could be just letting the dishes sit for an extra couple of house while you do some reading, or having your husband put the kids to bed so that you can escape to a local coffee shop for some peace and quiet for an hour. My personal favorites are the mom’s group at church (Building Better Moms) and scrapbooking!
Yesterday morning Building Better Moms started it’s ’09-’10 year! I’m co-leading this particular group with a friend and it has been so exciting just doing all the planning over the summer, but yesterday was really wonderful. I loved being in a room with 47 other women who are all at the same point I am – living life with early childhood aged kids. I’m so looking forward to the rest of the year and only wish the group met once a week (instead of twice a month)!
My other “me time” is my once a month scrapbooking night at church. For 3 hours once a month it’s just me and a bunch of women in a room cropping away! Later this month we have an all day crop (13 hours!) and I’m really looking forward to that. Because of my commitment to “me time” I’m only about 5 months behind in the boys’ books – and that’s even with doing 1 book for each of them!
As requested by several friends, here are some of the recent pages I’ve done. (Sorry for the glare on some of them.)
