Welcome to our adventures. I try as best as I can to document the happenings here in our family - everything from the shenanigans to the spiritual, from the kid to the kitchen, from the cat to the catastrophes. We believe that adventure can be found in everything we do...even in the mundane tasks of the day. When we set our minds on things above in gratitude to God, we find the strength to approach life with a sense of purpose & adventure. The adventure may not always be what we have planned...but isn't that what adventure is all about?

Other Stuff We Do

I came home from this gym this morning to find this going on in my foyer:

Leg stretches.  Water is close by for her re-hydrating needs, as
well as her "garbanzo bean" can weights

Abby with her "garbanzo bean" can weights.

Our church has a kids "Fitness Camp" during the summer months at the Sunday evening service.   The leaders teach the kids different exercises, things about good health/nutrition and also about their spiritual health.     

When I walked in, she was laying on the ground extending her leg and opposing arm out and counting to 10.   I was so utterly fascinated that I sat down on the couch and watched her complete her workout.   She also mixed in a few things she learned from her time working out with Uncle Anthony during our time in CA.   She doesn't want to be locked down to just one set of exercises, you know...

After her workout, she informed me that she was going to be wanting a healthy breakfast.   As opposed to the Twinkies and Ding-dongs that I normally feed her, I guess.    That was a joke, by the way...

She also informed me that this routine will be incorporated into her daily activities.   I'll let you know how that one goes.  I did mention to her that I only worked out 3 days a week....it seemed like she was stifling a scoff, but I can't be for sure on that one.   At any rate, I am encouraging her to continue focusing on good physical and spiritual health.   In the same breath I'm also reminder her to ensure my garbanzo beans are returned to the pantry.
