Enjoying every moment of these special times. Jets last year having his Dad and one of his older brothers coach him - with Gramma, Grampa, brothers, Aunts, Uncles and cousins watching from the side lines - forever special memories in the making. Counting my blessings and giving them more attention than any struggles. Xoxoxo #myboys#love#memories#bepresent#thefamilythatplaystogether#myhearts#purpose#joy
Never miss a Monday, five miles done! Monday miles with my guys! I waited out the heavy rain squalls but then it got dark so we opted for the track. Luke got some miles in too and Jack kicked his ball around. So fun to be out there together! #marathontraining#trackworkout#thefamilythatplaystogether
Summer isn’t quite over...fall isn’t quite here. This is a time of in-between, a time of dissonance and reflection as we prepare to find another home in Sandpoint, and approach the 1 year anniversary of moving to Idaho and 5 years of marriage. This is a time of remembering that we said YES to growth and joy and community and love and God and all of the challenge that comes with commitment to deeper, more full living. Here’s to digging in and keeping the faith and all our loved ones along the way 💛
From Fall Fest @schweitzer_mountain last weekend. The next time we ride up this chairlift we will have snow underfoot and boards on feet ❄️😀
On Monday we adopted this baby...he's an awesome work in progress, an '06 Kawasaki 636, with great bones...this is our 10th motorcycle, so we are like the Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt of motorcycle adoptions over here, minus the cat fights and Hollywood paycheck. I'm excited for him to be a part of our lil family. Thank you @cbach2003 !! #TheFamilyThatPlaysTogether#kawasaki#goaldigger#addicted#racergirl
Kingscliff you blew my socks off. I was totally blown away by the beauty of the beach and the Australian coastline. We ventured down to a hidden table on the sand for a family lunch and it was one of the highlights of our trip. So lucky to have family living here and to have family - Mum and Dad - come to visit for a few days.❤️ My girls loved spending time with family and so did I. #family#backpackingwithkids#lunchonthebeach#sunseasand#kingscliff#australia#nsw
Balance. This topic comes up for me a lot. As someone who wants to learn, try, and experience almost everything, I am frequently overcommitted and overly optimistic about what’s reasonable or healthy for me. The plus side is that I meet my edge regularly. The challenge is that I can also inefficiently or ineffectively pour out my energy and crash. So here’s how I’ve been practicing calibrating: My heart is full when I am taking care of myself AND serving/supporting/holding space for others. To figure out what I need to learn and commit to, I ask myself “What do I need to be joyful and well?” “What do I need to do/learn to be of service right now?” “What do the people around me need to be joyful and well?” The world doesn’t need me or you to be everything to everyone. Meet each moment, each person, each season, with whatever version of you showed up today. There is a time for all things 🌲💚
Another block is complete, and our inpatient team popped some corks (of sparkling juice) on Friday to celebrate the end of a busy month. Cheers to your hard work, team! 🍾🥂 #peoriafamilymed#thefamilythatplaystogether
Happy Birthday to my big Brother Jeremy @tghost1 🤪 A year and 8 days apart, but still my twin. You’ve been by my side our whole lives. I love you so much and I’m grateful to have such an amazing sibling. Have a fun day! See you Thursday. TEQUILA!!!
“Summer was our best season: it was sleeping on the back screened porch in cots, or trying to sleep in the tree house; summer was everything good to eat; it was a thousand colors in a parched landscape.” - Scout in #tokillamockingbird .
I put together a little recap of our summer in video form. I decided to leave out the footage of the 1:30 AM uninvited bat flying around my room & the whining kids. But the rest is there and what a wonderful summer it was. Absolutely felt like 1000 colors. 💛 Link in profile if you’d like to see!
