Immerse her in goodness.
Interestingly, when life is exceptionally busy, there are still those slow, constants throughout the day that bring your feet back to earth. Scrambled eggs and toast around the breakfast table, folding and stacking 6 different piles of laundry while children jump on the bed, watching all of my little girls share space in the bathtub together, connecting with my husband through Face Time at night…

We are a few days away from the Yoga for Congo Women event here in PA! I know there are many of you that would love to help the women in the Congo in some way, but can’t participate in the yoga events nationwide. Well, now you can.
Things are lively and busy in our household right now. I guess if you’ve been following this blog, you already knew that. The twins party has been moved up a day because of Bobby’s grandfather’s funeral. That means today, when we’re not outside enjoying the first real sunny day we’ve had in weeks, we’ll be finishing up special birthday baking and getting ready for many little toddlers to waddle into our backyard tomorrow.

There are times that baking saves our day. Having everyone gather around the table with their own jobs, measuring cups, a song rolling off their tongues, and heavenly anticipation of what our process will bring in the end. It is everything that a mother needs sometimes.
Many of you know that my dear friend Ann, founder of Mommy Yoga and Yoga for Congo Women, and I have been planning an east coast event of Yoga for Congo Women for a few months now. As it gets closer I’m really starting to get excited! Posters have been scattered around this little town of mine in Carlisle, PA and last minute details are coming together.
Good morning. Can I tell you how relieving it is to have my husband return after 7 days of being away? I still can’t believe all that went on last week and my attempt to maintain sanity on my own. All I can say is yellow days are ahead of me. Sunny, April, daffodil days.
Now I’m trying to slow down a bit more and get back in tune with my children. Let’s see, Caroline’s list of projects, Johanna’s hidden picture pages she loves to work on sitting on my lap, so on and so forth…
