Enjoying Life

Monday, May 16, 2011

These past couple of days have been quiet and relaxing, but today it was back to the things that needed done. One of those things was exercise. I haven't had the opportunity to work out in over two weeks and I missed it. I actually missed it. Boy, I've come a long way. (This is coming from someone that used to hate to sweat, and now truly knows the meaning of working up a sweat!)

This weekend, though the occasion for our gathering wasn't what we wanted, it was wonderful to visit friends and family of like precious faith and we enjoyed sharing many a story of growing up with Ralph. He absolutely loved life, even at his sickest moments. A real lesson to learn!

Since school is done here for the year and we are taking a whole summer off for the first time since I started homeschooling, I'm looking forward to enjoying life and teaching more of "life's lessons" to my children. I hope to make these moments last and have fun doing it.

One of the things we are doing together is putting in our pool. The ground work began tonight. Pictures will come later. So looking forward to it!

    Putting in that pool will be a workout in itself, but good job not relying on it and getting back on the fitness bandwagon - ENJOY YOUR SUMMER VACATION!!!
