One of my favorite things about homeschooling my kids is that they get to spend so much time together. Sometimes that is a bad thing :) but sometimes it is the sweetest thing! Harper and Grace are two peas in a pod. They are both girly and love to put on makeup and color. Most days you will find them both in the playroom coloring together. It melts my heart everytime!
Grace is a little artist, she colors so good and can spend an h our on one piece of art, she is a girl after my own heart! I have even found piles of crumpled up paper on the floor beside her because she just couldn't get it quite right...I love that girl.

I have been thinking a lot about my goals for
2014 and I think I have finally come up with my word: CAPTURE! I have
such a tendency to be looking forward to things in my life and missing
out on what is right in front of me. I find myself wishing
the days away, only to find that life is passing by so quickly. So, my
goal this year is to CAPTURE life's simple and beautiful moments that
are all around me. Everyday I get to see glimpses of who my kids are
growing up to be and I find myself forgetting so quickly the stages and
quirks and smiles that are fading quickly. I want to challenge myself to
take a breath and slow down, to take it all in and to take the time to
capture it. To really see the beauty all around me, the love that
surrounds me, the giggles, the spills, the memories, the friendships,
the messes that fill my day. It is not always pretty, but it is my life,
the life God has for me, and I want to remember the details!
So here begins a year of capturing the everyday, routine, beautiful moments of 2014!
This is Grace's "thing" right now. All over our house and all of the time she is doing cartwheels! It's adorable and annoying at the same time, like when she knocked a cup of freshly poured milk out of my hand because she was doing cartwheels in the kitchen But this is where we are right now and one day she is going to think cartwheels are for babies... So I want to CAPTURE it now!

Over the past few months I have been working so hard to update our fixer that we bought a few months ago. It has come such a long way. I have been painting and painting and more painting! It still amazes me how much a can of paint and some elbow grease can change a room so much. Take it form the 70's to 2013! I love the changes, but man, painting trim might be the worst job in the world!!!
Here is our entry when we moved in... ugh... is all I can say... those colors are just not us...
As you move from the entry you enter our family room, it was pretty plain and dark as well.
