Lake Vacation

Last weekend, Daniel, Maddox and I met Daniel's family at Smith Lake for a long weekend of family fun. We had a great time and really enjoyed getting to spend time with everyone! Maddox did great and we found out some WONDERFUL news while we were there. Daniel's brother and sister-in-law are expecting their first baby!!!! Carrie is due March 3rd and they are thrilled! We are sooooo excited for them and can not wait until the sweet baby arrives and Maddox gets to play with his cousin! Here are a few pictures from the weekend... I should have taken more!

Don't miss another new post below!!

Best Buds

Yesterday, I took Maddox to his friend Cooper's house and they had some fun play time! They really noticed each other and enjoyed "playing" together. I am sure they will spend even more time together as they get older! Thanks, Lydia, for having us over!!!

As my days of being a stay-at-home mommy are coming to an end, the guilt is beginning to hit me full force. I have been blessed enough to get to stay home for the past 4 months and I could not be more thankful for that! But, as all good things do come to an end, I am trying to view the fast-approaching day from a different light. I am trying to remember that the kids I teach each day also need me and while I love being at home with Maddox, I also love each of them. I am excited to meet my new batch of kids this year and I am sure they are going to be a great crew! It is going to be a different year, for sure, but hopefully a great one.

As I was reading a blog this morning, I came across this and it really gave me encouragement as I'm trying to prepare myself, again, for the working world. It made me realize that just because I am going back to work, that does not make me any less of a mommy to Maddox. For all you moms out there, take a minute to read this b/c it truly applies to all of us, not just moms who work outside of the home.
