"The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep."

I'm back in the blog-o-sphere!

It makes me sad that it has been weeks since I blogged. Writing is therapeutic for me, even when I am just recording the sweet and silly things that the girls say and do, and I miss having that outlet when I stop blogging. I have no explanation or excuses for my absence (sometimes life hits hard and it just takes a while to get back up), but I have missed my little blog and am glad to be back. :-)

This is just my "I'm baaaaaaack!" post, so it's not long or exciting, but I do have a cute picture to make it more fun! The girls and I went to the park this morning...

We took a picnic lunch, and the sunshine stayed out for us, so we were there for over two hours. We've been doing a lot of playing outside lately -- hours and hours every day when it's remotely nice out -- but that's all been in our backyard, so it was fun for all four of us to play somewhere new!

(And yes, I play with them on all that playground equipment. And no, I still can't do the monkey bars, thank-you-very-much-for-asking.)

On our way home I told the girls that if we passed a yard sale, I would stop and see if they had any outside toys. (Like I said, we've been spending endless hours outside -- we're in the market for something new!) This prompted a discussion of how they would let me know if they saw a yard sale; Hannah says, "I will yell 'yard sale!'", and Ashley says, "I will yell 'puppy!' because that is my code for 'yard sale'", and Bethany says, "I will yell 'apple!' because I call Daddy 'apple'!"

I am positive that my girls get sillier every day!


  1. Next time you're here, I'm taking you to the park and we're doing the monkey bars together. ;-D I'll cheer you on!

    Heehee and possibly take pictures while you're not watching and post all over everywhere. :)

  2. Is Bethany standing on a box?!? When did she get so tall :)
