FLASHBACK: APRIL 2020

in , by Gavin and Kylie Plus 4, 8:47 PM


April was our first full month of quarantine, and I was in a bit of panic mode.  I was 8 months pregnant, teaching online, never leaving my house, and trying to keep my sanity.  At this point of Covid, the news was still on all day every day, the governor had press conference at 11 letting us know what else needed to lock down, Treyton had preschool activities, and we still didn't know a ton of facts about the virus.  I did my best to know that we were safe as long as we just stayed home, but I was starting to lose my marbles!

MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!  I hope that you are reading thing in a place of peace, able to enjoy the rest of the week a little bit, and remember that Jesus is the reason for the season.  While this year has been frustrating on many different levels, I continue to feel overwhelmingly blessed when I stop to look around.  Slowing down and spending time with my people is probably just what I needed.  

7 MONTHS OF TRIGG BRADLEY!

by Gavin and Kylie Plus 4, 3:30 AM

Growing up, I remember people saying that the years would fly by, and I feel like I am currently wondering where the last 7 months have gone.  The last month of my pregnancy was LONNGGGGG, and I for sure thought I was going to have Trigg early and in fact, did not! But he is seven months old now and I don't know where the time went.  While the first couple months of him joining our family seemed really hectic, and somedays still do, he has seriously been the BEST baby.   Most of our family members haven't heard him cry, if they've had the chance to meet him due to Covid, and really, we haven't heard a ton of it either.

FLASHBACK: MARCH 2020

Oh March!  You're a bittersweet month to look back on!  I was in the "sweet spot" of pregnancy--where you're comfortable, look cute, and feel good, I turned 30 and was thrown a surprise birthday party, and then Covid hit and the world shut down.  We navigated a pretty tight lockdown due to being pregnant, having twins that didn't handle respiratory viruses very well, and knowing very little about the virus.  I tried my best to teach 3rd graders online, find everything we needed online, and keep my sanity at home!

PAYING IT FORWARD: CHRISTMAS

Raising kids isn't an easy task to begin with!  Enter 2020 and about a million other things were added to our plate.  There just hasn't been a "right way" to parent this year and just about every decision you make, there is something that doesn't feel right about it.  Christmas has been a breath of fresh air for me, though!  Our house feels cozy, our traditions have been fairly easy to carry on, and there is just excitement in the air!  With that being said, my kids are SUPPERRRR excited for presents so we have really been focusing on ways "give" and not always receive.
