We women have a lot to learn about simplifying our lives. We have to decide what is important and then move along at a pace that is comfortable for us. We have to develop the maturity to stop trying to prove something. We have to learn to be content with what we are." ~Marjorie Pay Hinckley~

Circus Vargas

Lukas wanted to go to Circus Vargas so badly, so after saving his money collecting bottles we went together as a family. Lukas bought his ticket with his hard earned cash, and even got to participate in some parts just for kids. It's awesome that he's learned to save for what he really wants, and that he takes joy in experiences rather than just stuff. I'm so proud of him!!

Cheap joy. Life's pleasures come in unexpected ways.

Movie Party

While all the friends are home for Christmas Break, Lukas really wanted to throw a movie party. The cartoon version of Robin Hood was on the marquis, and we made pizzas and popped popcorn with the buddies. Lukas was such a cute little host, and true to character- so excited to give to his friends. The best part? Them playing 'whack-a-mole' and playing on the racetrack together. Just kids. 

Horoscope for the Year

I just read Lukas' horoscope for the year. Sounds about spot on:

ARIES - The Aggressive (March 21 to April 19)
Outgoing. Lovable. Spontaneous. Not one to mess with. Funny... Excellent kisser. EXTREMELY adorable. Loves relationships, and family is very important to an Aries. Aries are known for being generous and giving. Addictive. Loud. Always has the need to be 'Right'. Aries will argue to prove their point for hours and hours. Aries are some of the most wonderful people in the world. 16 years of bad luck if you do not share this post.
