April flew by, so I am glad we kept goals simple! Emma and Johnny had a lovely spring break, that new feels as if it were light years away, in spite of the month flying by so quickly. We spent loads of time outdoors – one benefit of having an indoor space that none of us adore! I got some lovely pictures of the kids meeting their newest cousin, captured the lovely flower above, and took a few others that will show up in posts this upcoming month. We took the kids into San Francisco for the first time, and had a wonderful time there! I joined a community choir run by my college voice teacher (they practice once a week, after the kids are in bed – perfect for me) and got to practice my newborn photography skills both on my niece and a friend’s newborn – something I would love to perfect. Johnny got to know the students in his new kindergarten class better. Emma finally mastered the steps of the traditional Mexican dance she is learning at school. Lily and Anna developed a more solid this-is-how-we-play-when-it’s-just-the-two-of-us routine. I have challenges I’m dealing with that I don’t write about much because this blog is my happy place, but there is a lot of beauty in my life.
May 2014 Goals
I’m keeping my May goals simple, because – even though it’s been nearly a year since we put our house in Massachusetts on the market – we still haven’t quite found our feet in California. Moving across the country is complicated – and exhausting!
- Enjoy the last month of school, and have the kids write thank you notes to their wonderful teachers. Theme: gratitude
- Keep taking pictures of the kids. Photography makes me happy, and I love capturing memories. Theme: gratitude
- Start making summer plans. Theme: responsibility and education
I’ll meet my simplicity theme by, once again, stopping with these very basic goals. What are your planning to do in May?
