This week has been lovely! It's actually been unbearably hot most days, but because of the heat in the valley- we've been taking to the mountains. Nothing cools you down like a motorcycle ride through slightly chilly canyons, or a hike around a mountain lake- and it certainly makes me appreciate the beauty of Utah more than just living in a city oven.
I'm also feeling a lot more affectionate towards my children that of late - since we've stopped watching tv or playing with any "devices" during the week and it's making a world of difference in my children's attitudes and actions. Hurray!
It's hard for me, since sometimes I just want them to sit still for 10 minutes while I make dinner or nurse the baby, and I no longer have the ease of handing them the iPad to watch an episode of Clifford- but it's been worth it! Our home has been much happier the last week and a half since we began this.
