Things I Want to Remember About a January That Felt Like September.

Our winter has been more of a summer.

And I love summer.

So no complaints here.

Hope started a junior high Sunday school class.

And it has my heart.

Dave and I met in junior high youth group.

After he hit me in the face with a dodgeball.

God is good at bringing us full circle.

We watched the Niners win some.

And lose some.

And we’re officially Denver fans next week.

Kayla’s just happy to root for horses.

We tried pear/mango/papaya.

She agrees with me that papaya tastes like the smell of feet.

We like sweet potatoes with cinnamon better.

And we feed ourselves, I guess?

What four month old does that?

We spent Saturday mornings watching America’s Funniest Home Videos.

Also, I felt the need to throw in a “before” pic.

Because we also got an accidental summer cut.

I’m still getting the hang of the goldendoodle fur.

And waited too long to call the groomer.

He had legit dreads.

One Love, Linc.

We’ve been up to our ears in schoolwork.

Researching.

Writing.

Memorizing.

Ashlyn had a presentation on snow last week.

She was able to read the whole thing.

After we practiced the word “temperature” a few times.

And was upset the snowflake I helped her make did not have six sides.

“But that’s fiction, mom! ¬†We said right here it has six sides and this only has four sides.”

“It’s not supposed to be FICTIONNNNN!”

I’m so proud of her.

And want to run and hide from her all at the same time.

Kayla has a presentation next month on a topic of her choice.

She went to the SPCA with her dad yesterday.

I was a little worried they’d come home with a friend for Rastafari.

But they stayed on task.

Research only.

I’m proud of them, too.

We spent time swimming in Nan and Pop’s pool.

Often.

We had play dates at the park.

And know how to take selfless, apparently.

We’ve been practicing our jumping.

Well, or just drooling on our seat.

We found our toes.

And clothing has been pretty optional.

For the baby, obviously.

I still can’t believe she’s nakie in the middle of winter.

We’ve spent time on the coast.

Adventures on the Pacifica pier.

We saw a sea lion.

We’ve witnessed some glorious sunsets.

January, you’ve been full and fun and different this year.

Thanks for the sunshine.

  2. Oh, this post is filled with fun and cute! Holland is ALL the cute. Seriously. She steals the post.

    Hit in the face by a Dodge Ball. For a Jr. High boy that is the equivalent of public display of affection. It’s a miracle it worked out for him.
