Today was beautiful out. The boys and I went to the playground and then shoe shopping this morning. which is crazy because having three under five is a little hectic! Some days I cant believe I even brush my teeth, let alone get myself and three boys dressed and out the door. We came back to campus, played in the gym, had lunch with Ben and then went for a long walk and stopped by the river park after. What a long day! But I feel so much better when I get out of the house. Ive always had a tendency to lock myself away for long periods of time and pretend like the rest of the world doesn't exist. its such an easy habit to get into, especially when you have small children and every part of your body is exhausted. i have had days where i don't get out of my pajamas. But that always leads to a small amount of depression. that is why winter here in the northeast is so hard for me. i am inside all the time and the sun never shines. but it does make me appreciate the summer so much more. So when i start getting out, like i did today, it changes my whole attitude. I feel better, im happier, and my kids are happier because of it. Its amazing how much the sun does for you!

  1. Been there ... know what you mean.

    As for outside environment ... I was raised in WA state ... lots of rain and clouds all year round. I am soooo thankful to live in S CA. now.

    Kids do well on long walks too. And it wears them out :)
