I keep intending to update this blog. I have pictures and we have been doing some fun, although laidback, activities this summer. The girls have been out of school for two weeks now. They spent last week at Vacation Bible School. Saturday, a school friend invited them over for a playdate. How cool it was that Mom and Dad could have a little time together without the girls. One week from now, we will be starting a summer vacation. This year we will not be traveling to Europe or Hawaii, but instead, will meet up with some friends at Disneyland. Hopefully, we can squeeze in a few more vacation days this summer and plan a few road trips around California.
My attention has been a bit side-tracked lately. I have another blog that has been garnering a lot of my attention this week and I expect it to monopolize a lot of my time over the next year. I have made a commitment to myself to do a 365 project. That is, I will be taking a picture a day, every day, for the next year. And to make it especially challenging, I will be the subject of most of the pictures. This is particularly difficult for me because I am very uncomfortable in front of the camera. I am unhappy with my appearance and am working to make a significant lifestyle change by becoming more healthy and losing weight. So far, this year, I am down 38 pounds, but I really need to drop another hundred. Therefore, this project is a means of documenting my progress over time, as well as holding myself accountable to my goal. So please bear with me if this blog may seem a little slim on postings or if it might have a few too many shots of me, rather than my children. This blog is supposed to be all about Chloe and Pearl. They are one of the main reasons that I am committed to changing my lifestyle. I want to be able to enjoy an active lifestyle with them and I intend to keep up with their energy and encourage them to challenge themselves both mentally and physically.
I'll try to keep the focus of this blog on the girls, but for this post, I'm making an exception.
