It's been a year and I finally picked up my camera just for the enjoyment of it. I took pictures of a friend's kids. I'm rusty. I feel like a rookie again, trying to figure out the right settings. But it made me smile to do it again.

We're building our new house. Which is pretty exciting right? Scheduled to be complete by December 11th... With lots of prayers. I haven't quite got excited about the house yet. Even for our first house I never gotten excited during the building process. I think that getting excited over something that could potentially fail was a little scary to me. And that may be the case this time. But the house has started going up, they've already started framing it, and I have to admit, that when I saw all the house being framed I was pretty excited. Maybe more so because I'm excited for it to be complete on time. I mean, talking complete right before Christmas. I want to be moved into my house and settled enough to put up a Christmas tree and enjoy Christmas in our new home.

30-Day SQUAT CHALLENGE and some have opted to do them both. Want to join us? Click on the link and join the group! https://www.facebook.com/groups/170603523095306/
Here's the 30-Day AB CHALLENGE:
One thing Hubs and I agree on is teaching the kids to be lead healthy lifestyles. For us, allowing them to spend countless hours playing video games without any outside time is not going to happen.
Does this mean they aren't allow to play video games?
Not at all. The boys love bonding together playing NBA Live and Miss Missy has a bit of a ROBLOKS addiction when she can find an empty computer, but often we as parents tend to get lost in our own worlds and take advantage of the quiet time that the video game marathons give us. A lot of kids spend a lot of their time playing games indoors rather than enjoying the outdoor games that we did when we were kids.
Kids have lost their imagination and creativity and when they go outside they are BOOOOOOOORED because they can't find anything to do. What happened to the games we use to play to pass the time while we were outside? You know, those days when your mama said, "Don't come back in this house or you're staying inside." Yeah, so because of those words, we hydrated at the water hose in the neighborhood and came up with games to play OUTSIDE.
TAG, RED-LIGHT/GREEN-LIGHT, MOTHER-MAY-I?, JUMP ROPE, KICKBALL
Any of these sound familiar?
Kids now have absolutely no idea what it means to just play outside and have FUN until the streetlights come on.
So, this summer, we're shooting for NO LAZINESS as we get up out of our beds in the mornings and get in a workout... TOGETHER! I have committed to doing a workout plan anyway, so to add in the kids workout is just a great way to push me that much harder. So, I'm ready. I'm going to BEAST it this summer and be an example for the kids.
WHEW! I'm already tired just thinking about it!

So what's the solution?
New shoes? Dr. Scholls? Surgery? Not sure what the next step is, but It's only getting worse and it's now hurting to walk around stores, take walks and stand too long.
