Life Lessons and The Park

Does anyone else ever feel like they are just living without really existing. I have really been struggling with that lately. I know the Lord has plans for me and wants me to do something-something besides you know, mopping floors, figuring out what to make for dinner and making the whites, even whiter. Don't get me wrong that is a part of my life that I am so thankful for and I would never change that. I just wonder sometimes if there is something out there that the Lord is calling me to do and I just haven't listened well enough to know what that is. I have really been clinging to Proverbs 3:5-6, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understandings but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." So there you have it, my struggle of the week that causes me to babble once more! Moving on...

We went to the park the other day, despite the wet grass and mud puddles. We all needed to get some fresh air. The girls played so well together! It was a lot of fun watching them run around and chase each other and listen to Kailey make up little games for them to play.

Usually Kailey refuses to swing but today she would do it if she could sit with Lauryn. It was a little crowded but they obviously didn't care because they were in there for close to 30 minutes.
This is Kailey saying, "Catch us mom." and then they both take off running. They are really pretty fast!
Kailey finally conquered her fear of slides!
Anyone think they can take me? I am the queen of tic tac toe!

Check out my Slide Show!

Here is my sweet Lauryn, sharing whatever it is that was on her mind. She wants to be understood so bad!

And here is my sweet Kailey watching her favorite movie, Charlottes Web
This is what they have been reduced to because of the rain. They are so bored, they have nothing else to do but lay in the bathroom and dream about the sunshine. Somebody play with these kids will ya?!

Ok, confession time...i know it has been a ridiculously long time since i posted but the worse part is that i still get on everyday and check all the other blogs i like to read and i am always so disappointed when there is nothing new to read. I know, I know, that is WRONG!!! So sorry! I have been in some sort of a funk lately and I am really having a hard time getting out of it. I have been so lazy the past several days, I'm talking like, in my pajamas all day, kinda lazy. i know I am not the only one who does that but I hate when I do that, because at the end of the day I feel even worse. It is a vicious cyle I have gotten myself into lately. I think the other thing that is subcontiously bothering me is that Thursday is my birthday and this is the last year of my life that I will be able to say that I am in my 20's. (I guess that gave my age away, huh) I know that is still so young but it dosn't seem all that long ago I was telling people that my mom was like 30 something and I remember that seeming so old! Geesh...I told you I was in a funk. Anyway, It should be a fun birthday though, Chris keeps telling me he has several things planned, that kinda scares me! I will try to remember to take pictures. I am so bad at that compared to most of the other blogger moms that I keep tabs on. You guys take amazing pictures of everything..yo know like cookies and pretty lunches that you eat. I so need to get into the picture thing. Ok, enough of my mindless rambling and whining. I need to go read the Word and lift my spirits. Lata...
