Happy Friday

Making soup, and bacon & eggs, and muffins at the kitchen floor restaurant this morning
I am so grateful that I get to spend my days with these kiddos. With the start of school and all these new transitions, I've started looking ahead more at what's next as this season of caring for my little ones full-time winds down in the next few years. (And it reminds me very much of my last few years of high school where I would pore over the BYU course catalog, knowing I could choose from so many different wonderful options! I'd pick one and try it out in my mind for a little while till I was ready to move on to something else... really I'm pretty sure I always planned to be a teacher and hoped to be a mother, but the many choices were also just so fun to imagine!) I'm so happy that I chose to spend these years in this role though.

Isaac and I went to kindergarten with Porter today for a little while to read a story in celebration of Porter's birthday. With some last minute changes, it turned out to be a little longer than Isaac could manage, but he was sure happy most of the time trying to do all the things the kindergarteners were doing! And it was so fun to see all these little kindergarteners and look forward to getting to know them and watch them growing up (like all of Landon's kindergarten friends who are now middle-schoolers!)

Side note:
It has been a long time since I've written regularly here, and even though I'm sitting down in my same favorite spot and in this same mid-afternoon quiet space,  I feel pretty out of practice... So along with  the fact that I really want to remember these days and that means I need to write things down, here's a favorite  little post that has stuck with me --

"You're doing it wrong." 
But at least you're doing it. 
Once you're doing it, you have a chance to do it better.
Waiting for perfect means not starting.

(Seth Godin)

Happy Friday!
