What's been up

I've kind of been taking a break from blogging lately-trying to "get it together".

We were sad on Father's Day that Scotty wasn't here.

Poor SB. Laiken couldn't get her dress right.

I've been working on getting the three big kids in a better routine. I've decided we needed some changes. New rules, etc. I was getting very overwhelmed. So far, it's going great. The kids have to make their beds and clean their rooms before breakfast. Ya'll-their rooms are staying spotless. I talked with them and they helped make the new rules and talking with them worked wonders. We are having family meetings at night to talk about our days, etc. Maybe I'll do a post on this later. :-)

I needed time to do things I needed to do, without being so stressed. I've been able to work out and do my bible study in the mornings and it's been great. I've been focusing on getting healthier, losing weight, and working out. I feel so much better.

Other than that, there just really hasn't been much to blog about. But I do have this really sweet babe I can post pictures of!

Hanging out on my mom's front porch. Love summer nights;)

Tummy time.

Hanging out with biggest brother.

Bath time is fun!

Guess that's all for now!

Hey Ashley! I get like that at times too, with not having much to blog about...good to see you back though (not that I knew you were absent because I was too lol)
Sorry your hubby missed Father's Day with you all :(
I love how you are changing things up a bit with the kid's routines and house rules etc, they need it at times. I become so overwhelmed too so I completely understand this post xo
