Why?

Okay,  I've been dragging my feet writing as to why I haven't put up a post practically all summer...

This summer I just really wanted to focus on my family... lying in the grass and looking up at the clouds, exploring new places, going on vacation...and not worrying about putting up a post.

So, I gave myself that gift. It's not like one weekly post takes sooo much time...but it does, when I'm running after four little ones.  And I tell you, that this number four is keeping me so much busier!  He's an absolute doll, but I never sit down (except when I'm at the computer). 

I also started our own family blog.  I've been keeping journals up to this point, but I'm giving the blog a go and I'm really enjoying being able to have photos tell the story along with my text.  (I still have a journal though, to tuck in those little love notes and drawings.)

Time seems so precious lately... my little ones are getting so big and I want to know that I gave them my all.  This year will also be filled with doctor visits and surgeries...I am BRCA2 positive for the breast cancer/ ovarian cancer gene.  I am going forward with prophylactic surgeries that will help reduce my risks of getting these cancers.  I am blogging through this journey..for my children..and for others who may be experiencing this too.

So, time is precious and I've wanted to soak up my family for the summer...

I love all your fun ideas. And I love that your kids come up with so many of them on their own! What's your family blog address? I wanna check it out! Hope you're recovering well :)

I think you will enjoy having a family blog. I printed out the past 2 years of ours into a book and had the journal/journey in that form too. And it's nice that grandma can see it from far away too :)
I have #4 on the way....and admire all you do!
