I started this blog to capture the more personal part of my life. I have been blogging for over a year professionally. The problem is, I want to thoroughly process and present a perfect post…. EVERY TIME.
What results… I don’t post.
So I didn’t post about Embug’s volleyball team winning the 12U championship.
I didn’t post about the end of the year awards for the kids.
Kritter with Mrs. Burnett- 2nd Grade Awards
Kritter with friends celebrating a great 2nd Grade year
Embug at 5th grade Graduation with Mrs. Daniel
Embug with one of her besties… all smiles for these future Middle Schoolers!
I didn’t post about the 5th grade clap out. The one most significant event that happens at Haslet Elementary on the last day of school to bid farewell to their oldest members of the student body.
Silly girls getting ready to exit the building.
I failed to post Embug’s choir singing “God Bless America” at the Rough Rider’s game in the 7th inning stretch at Dr. Pepper Ballfield in Frisco.
What I realize is that I am missing moments both big and small because I am waiting for the perfect time to create the perfect post. What’s the use of a blog if you don’t utilize it for what it was intended… right?
So I plan to be more intentional with posting and less concerned about how perfect it looks. For your grammar, spelling and format wardens… I apologize if my errors annoy you. This blog isn’t for you anyway. It is ultimately a journal of memories and moments that capture the beauty, struggles and human moments of my life and the life of my family. It is a legacy for my family that I wish to share with the world… and as a way for our family far and near to have a window into our lives. Frankly, I am not the best and keeping everyone up to speed.
So, in the first part I shared some big events that happened over the course of the last few weeks. Less “braggy” moments, but my personal favorites that I didn’t post were:
Embug totally digging the Indy Car Race at Texas Motor Speedway
Kritter explaining framerate to decrease lag in Minecraft.
Catching Embug and Kritter disagreeing while playing Minecraft. (love it… when I catch us being real)
And finally, Embug showing me how important it is to savor quiet moments with a cup of Jo. (I think she’s 11 going on 50!)
So here’s to capturing the real moments in life and learning from them. I love telling our story. I hope you enjoy reading it.
Until next time…
