It's obviously the height of summer because I just have not had time to post. We have been quite busy and the summer is just flying by. I was reading recently in a fascinating book about memory that one way to slow time down is to make a more conscious effort to preserve your memories. Our lives are collections of memories and the reason why life during childhood seems so much longer than life as an adult is that childhood is filled with memories. The memories are more lasting in childhood because so many experiences are new and thus more memorable. How do I duplicate this as an adult? Slow down, spend time processing your day, journal or even blogging! So even though I think I may not have time to blog I really need to in order to do this. I know that personally I remember more details since I started blogging.
Lots has been going on so in order not to cram one post full of everything I will space it out over the next couple weeks.
Last Saturday we all wanted Christian to see the Brandywine River Arts Museum so we took another trek down to Chadd's Ford. It is such a lovely place and even if you don't visit the museum there are plenty of walking trails along the river to enjoy.
Since we were down in that neck of the woods we decided to stop over at Tyler Arboretum to see their butterfly house and the treehouses they had set up. There were new ones since we had been there 3 years ago so the kids enjoyed checking them out. And of course the butterfly house was a big hit.
And since I have absolutely no pictures of my preggo belly, there you go. 12 more weeks to go!
So far this pregnancy has been going very well. I have been exercising 5 days a week so have been feeling great and haven't had any back pain which I normally do. Prenatal Pilates has been helping that I believe. I am starting to feel that 3rd trimester fatigue though and those 75 pounds of peaches we picked that are sitting in bags in my kitchen waiting to be made into jam and diced and frozen are looking might overwhelming right now. Wish me luck.
