So, I've been thinking about this blog and why I do it. I'm doing this because I can print it out every year, pictures and all, and have it made into a book. I don't scrapbook so this is PERFECT for me!! This blog will document our lives, it's for my girls and for us when we are old and forget how amazing these times were. I want to know what we were donig and how we were doing it. I want the girls to have some sort of idea on how they grew up and the things we did. Soooo that's what this is.... a documentary of this Hoffman clan. :)
I have two more weeks left of this semester and I'm doing great, but it takes up so much of my time. I'm bound and determined to not allow my school work interfere with my girls and their activities. I'm struggling. I want my girls to be able to do everything they want to do. Dance, swimming lessons, t-ball, track, basketball, cheer, science fair projects, special events. I still volunteer to make snacks and work the school carnivals and do extra's for the girls and their activities. Furthermore I want to be there, at all of it. I don't want to miss a single school party (I know most mom's don't get to go to these, but I can, so I don't want to miss them.) I want to be able to "do it all". So far we've been doing it. We do everything extra we can get our hands on and the girls LOVE IT!! I don't want to be one of those mom's who push their kids into stuff, so they always have the final say whether they do it or not, but they thrive being out and being apart of the community and so do I. So we carry on!! It's a struggle for me. I'm always busy and always trying to do more. Really, I just want to make the best of it. I know I'm blessed beyond belief and my life is very good right now. In fact it's perfect. I don't want to someday look back and think.....WOW, I could have done so much more had I only tried.
I just don't want to waste this time. I want to have fun, be active and make my kids happy. I want them to have the kind of childhood that after they are grown they can say Yup, my childhood ROCKED!
Well, enough about all that. :) Here are some pictures of us being us and all the fun stuff we find to do. So much has gone on so I'll do my best to catch ya up!
