Today was such a good day. You guys all worked hard on your school work. The weather was beautiful and we did our science lesson on the back porch. Afterwards, you and Bubby decided to make up a game to play called Egg Wars. It ended with you and baby Sissy covered in egg yolk. You asked if you could go down to the lake and clean off there instead of a shower. Of course, I said yes. There is something so relaxing and so calming to me by the water. It was a good day indeed.

We spent this gorgeous day outside from morning to afternoon and we had a wonderful time, even if part of it did include tears. Isn't this the reality of our days? Sometimes, I feel like it is important to share these moments as well. There are ups and downs each and every day. Even as a mother, I have my highs and lows. As I climbed into bed last night, I thought about how thankful I am for God's grace.I question all the time if I am a good enough mama for you all. I think many mamas do this. Our hearts are so full and we only want the best for our children. I will mess up a lot as a mother, but always know I am learning too and I love you with all my heart. I am glad that this moment of frustration and tears was just that. A moment of our day. We had so many other moments filled with laughter and joy and that is what life is truly about. We have to see past the hard times, to truly enjoy the good ones.
This afternoon was spent by the lake. You splashed in the water with your brother and cousin. I watched as your made up games. You are always the director and so creative with your ideas. I love that about you. We were coming up from the lake and I asked if I could take this picture. The grass is still so green in January. When we finished you asked if I would count while you jumped on your new pogo stick. You have been practicing daily and you are now jumping over 200 times without stopping. I love you always my sweet girl. You are at such a precious age; I wish I could pause it for a while.
