quiet days

We haven't been up to a whole lot lately, which is just the way I like it. Here are a few instagram shots to illustrate how very boring we are. :)

Elliot got a new car seat, much to his dismay. He had figured out how to unbuckle his old one, and now he is kind of bummed that he's stuck. Mike was working last Saturday, so the kids and I headed to the library. It is one of our favorite places.

The weather has been so pleasant, that we've been making twice daily trips to the park. We have to get all of our sliding and swinging in while we can.

I get to have handsome Oliver in my primary class this year. He is so easy and good. And once all of the kids are at school, I am left with this little guy. We have lots of fun folding laundry or cleaning the house or going to the grocery store together.

Does this look like your life, too?


  1. I've been catching up on your blog via the archives and I love it! You are a wonderful mother with a very beautiful spirit, I can tell. I love these quiet days too...they are the best. Enjoy! P.S. My friend's Singer's Co. group is starting up soon. Oh how I wish I had a day I hope! :)

  2. Your instagrams are great. The only think that resembles my life are the church chairs, they are the same everywhere :) You are lucky to live somewhere you can visit the park in during February!

  3. This does remind me of what my life looks like most of the time and it makes me so happy. I say library trips and park outings mean we ARE up to something and I love it.

    Oh! I also wanted to let you know that your chats about yodipity got me all excited to try frozen yogurt once it made it's way to Iowa and now I am hooked! Pineapple or Kiwi are both my favorites. Yummmm. Tastes like summer!

    Love your blog. It always makes me feel happy. :-)

    Oh, Stephanie, how I long to be able to say I "haven't been up to a whole lot lately"

    So weary of going, going, going.

    Thanks for the reminder to slow down.

  5. Just love the pictures of some of my beautiful great grandchildren and my gorgeous granddaughter.
