I'm Back

So maybe I won't start posting more frequently.  But I just had an absolutely fabulous play date with a friend I met through the blog and it has me inspired to at least start trying to post little snippets again.  I think of posting things but then feel pressure to post long updates since it's been so long and then never end up posting.  Now that daily visits to my site have become a very small number, I don't feel as much pressure so maybe I'll pick it up again.

For now, here are a few of our most recent happenings...

  • Kit and Elise fed a giraffe (see photo below) at the Boise Zoo while we were visiting his sister and her family.  They both loved the experience, Elise so much so that she told me all about it again in detail at breakfast this morning even though I was there to witness the event and even though it happened three weeks ago.
  • Evelyn is walking now.  Not all the time, but she mostly tries to walk wherever she goes.  If she's in a huge hurry, she gives up more quickly but otherwise she tries to walk rather than crawl.  And she's talking more and more.  Lately, her favorite thing to say is "all done."  She says it both when she is all done and when she just wants to be impressive and say the words.
  • I ran my first ever 5K last night!!  I started Couch to 5K in February or March and then took a break because of a couple of trips (one to my parents' and one to Kit's sister's) and multiple illnesses (a cold, a horrible virus that had me in bed for a few days, lingering exhaustion from said virus and another cold).  But I've started up again and ran an actual, full fledged 5K (a bit more even) last night.  I was thinking of doing a race but decided to reward myself instead with a pair of running shorts since the price was about the same.  Unfortunately, the shorts are sold out online so now I have to see about finding a store here that sells them.
And now for some photos...

Nice to see you back. I should follow your lead and blog more too. I can't believe your baby is already walking!! Time goes by so quick. Enjoy your summer if you don't blog again until the fall. Thanks for the update.

yea! i love your posts!
hope you are doing well!
loved your comment today-it blessed me!
I asked moms of larger families (when I only had keaton) if it got harder and harder and they all agreed that it was the HARDEST when they were all close in age and all young.
I completly agree.
You are probably in one of the hardest time of it...hang in there!!!
This is definatly "in the trenches"!!! =)
I'll keep you in my prayers as you seek to be an awesome mama for the Lord's glory!
Love the pictures! Also-AWESOME job of running the 5k!! Keaton and I were training to do one last month, then they changed the rules and he couldn't go with he's not so sure he wants to do the whole thing...silly boy!
Have a wonderful evening!
