Caleb and Chloe were talking about what they would do if they were the president.

Chloe's first act would be to turn the peace sign upside down because "it's prettier that way."

And Caleb wants to give all prisoners Taco Bell because "they deserve to eat good food."

Fellow Americans, your future is in good hands.

Family Update

This poor blog has been so neglected.

I wrote a book.

I write more often at my more public blog.

I became a Noonday Ambassador.

And my kids are spending the summer destroying my house.

Life is good. I am working hard to live at a slow, intentional pace. So it's not all that busy. Just full. We have big changes happening at our gym. And I am figuring out life as I transition out of babyhood into the middle ages.

I have no complaints. Just thankful for full days.

And hopefully I will get back to my family blog soon!

Happy Birthday, Levi!

My sweet baby turned 3 last week. As with every milestone, I can hardly believe he is 3! He is fully potty trained, which is wonderful. He learned so quickly, even in spite of my very subpar efforts.

Levi is the absolute cutest kid!

He is just now learning to talk, so he still has the sweetest voice.
Some of the cute things he says:
"NO, LUKE!" (He says this very clearly and very often)
"Diapers, babies. Me, undies."
"You nice. Luke mean. Me nice."
"Beak, Daddy!" (beach with Daddy)
Do you want this off? "No, on."
"No, no, no, no, no" (while waving his finger)

Levi is such an easy kid. He goes with the flow. The only time he gets upset is when he is left out or has to be alone (like for a nap). He plays independently really well, but he just prefers to be around people.

He keeps up so well with his older siblings, and he is fearless.

Levi loves to laugh, and he is constantly active.

I am so, so, so thankful for my precious boy. He is totally the baby of our family, and we all adore him!!

Levi is just the cutest. 
He's almost three and finally starting to talk. He has the sweetest voice. 

When he sees the pictures in my room, he says 
"Daddy, hike" (football pic)
"Mommy Daddy ewwww" (wedding pic)
"You!" (bridal pic)

He likes "tars" (cars)

And he loves the colors blue and "yellyo"

I cannot handle the cuteness. 

Our Summer Bucket List



Chloe made this for her birthday...that's four months away!!
