Summer Updates

Hey there! Long time, no see! I know I’m still lacking in the consistency department for this blog, but it has been for good reason:

1. Our sweet little daughter will only be a newborn once. I’m trying to soak it all in. I would much rather have post-bath time snuggles with her than sit at my computer for another 30 minutes. She smells a lot better. But seriously… I cannot say it enough. These 8 weeks have flown by. Nothing makes you appreciate time like being a parent and I want to enjoy every single second of it.


2. It is camp season! As you may remember from this post, I work for a Christian sports camp – Still Water Sports Camp – and we are in the middle of the busiest time of year. It is wonderful! Unfortunately I haven’t been out to any of the camps yet, but I cannot wait to go to the next couple sessions. Girls volleyball. Check out this video for a little taste of camp.

3. Tim has had quite a bit going on too. Promotion. Transition into Grad School. Classes for MBA and MHA in one year. It is going to be intense. Time with him is limited and precious too!

Michaela chose the best times to cry – when everyone was silent/at attention and during family pictures. She just likes to be the center of attention, I guess.

We also recently visited Tim’s parents in El Paso! Our next adventures include a trip to California for my beautiful cousin’s wedding. I cannot wait! I’m excited to meet her fiance and have my whole family meet Michaela!

That’s all for now. Time to enjoy some more MJ-snuggle time before bed.


  1. Thanks for your sweet words of encouragement! Your daughter is so precious! Oh, and I am still struggling with putting my phone down while I nurse too! That is why my conversation with God was at 4 am... :)In the middle of the night my phone is too bright!

  2. soak in those newborn moments while you can - my little girl is about to turn 1 and I wish I had them back! That's right, computer time can wait! ha.
