Last night was medal night at t-ball, Aidan loved it, he wanted to sleep with it.
Also this week, since coming back from vacation, I want to learn how to rest and enjoy every moment like I did on vacation while we were at the beach. So I know that I have to learn to say no to things and that certain things do not have to be done right away and can wait till later. Though the perfectionist type A personality in me struggles with just letting things I see that need to be done just sit there. But I know what I need to do, and that is keeping my focus on Jesus and what He wants me to do and let Him lead my day, so I can enjoy those everyday little moments!
While I was on vacation I read half way though the book The Well Trained Mind, a great book for anyone that is homeschooling or planning on it. I also read Hands Free Mama, this book is a must if you struggle with perfectionism, distractions or wanting to let go of things to fully live!! Which is exactly what I am learning to do! I love life and want to make sure I treasure all the moments, even the simple mundane everyday moments, yes that includes dishes! So let's seize the moments at hand!
Here are some of my favorite readings this week:
