Busy holiday break

I finally installed the camera software onto our new computer. It’s so much nicer to view pictures on this machine. I’ve been off with the kids since December 23rd and Mike has been home for most of that. We’ve been keeping busy and trying to keep the kids active due to their insane energy levels. We had a great Christmas and a really low-key New Years and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. I’ve taken the kids to a gymnastics center three times in the past week. They love it there and I accomplish the goal of keeping their hyperness in check. It’s a win-win. They also went ice skating with Mike once or twice which they are loving. Tonight Michael wrote his name for the first time all by himself. I was very proud but also very guilty because it was fairly easy for him. I should have started sitting down with him months ago to practice but he’s the second child and being that we are who we are, we treat him like he’s our eighth. Poor kid. 

Aside from keeping busy and burning daylight, I have been thinking about the New Year and what I hope to accomplish personally. Every year I make resolutions and every year I fail to keep them by the second week of January. So, this year I’m going with a “baby steps” mentality.  The resolutions themselves are pretty common I would assume: be a better (read: more patient) mother, be a better wife and friend, get healthy, etc. Enjoy the long overdue pictures!tentative-skater-marianmikey-learning-to-skate
