just some randomness

 I've felt a little uninspired with blogging lately, so here is just a bunch of randomness...


It's getting really hot in SoCal, and I'm melting. Seriously, I can't handle heat. Yesterday it was only 83 and it felt like 110 to me. So, we've started enjoying our pool. The kids want to get in everyday and Elijah shows no fear. He can't swim at all, but that doesn't keep him from jumping head first into the water. 

I started teaching swim lessons, but had to stop because of all the health stuff going on (big bummer)...but I should be back teaching in July and I can't wait.

Elijah thinks he's, maybe a little cooler than he actually is...

oh, how I love this girl and her skinny little body.


I started reading Little Woman and I'm thoroughly enjoying it, although it's taking me awhile to get through it and I might be a little late returning it to the library.


Caleb surprised me and took me out a couple Mondays ago. I had no idea at all until that evening when he told me to get ready. He took care of a babysitter and everything without me knowing...and that's hard to do. 

Can you guess where we went...

It was beautiful driving down the coast...

  
Love this man and so blessed by the times we spend together.

 I was told when I first got married that fresh flowers and a candle burning make a house a home. Well,  I guess our house is a home cause I have flowers in every corner of our tiny apartment.


 One of their favorite pastimes...

Her doll goes everywhere with her...

It's the sweetest thing to see her kiss her and sing to her. 

And in other fun news...got some test results back and the mono is GONE! I'm slowly getting some energy back and loving it. Some of the blood work for my liver is still abnormal so we're waiting to find out what's going on with that. Thank you all for your prayers and encouraging words. They mean a lot.

Love 'Little women' .... so sweet that your little girl sings to her doll, isn't it amazing how that nurturing spirit is so innate...no matter what the age!

It was so, so lovely getting to talk to you at the parties this weekend! I will have to get your email from one of the girls soon and we can start chatting about books! :) I think I'm going to start the Mark of the Lion Series this weekend based on Katy's mom's recommendation! So glad the Mono is gone and hopefully the Thyroid problem can be solved soon as well. I promise you, you will feel like a whole new woman when it gets solved! :)
