Its been 6 years since I’ve done anything with this blog, but with all the traveling we’ve done this year, I’m really excited to start documenting our family again. I think its so important to keep these memories fresh and make sure they are recorded for our kids in the future. I always love going back and reading posts from years ago and laughing or reminiscing about those times in our lives; poignant memories from when the kids were babies, those times when the nights were sleepless and the days were long; when we didn’t think we’d ever make it out of the “Terrible Two’s” alive. I know we have many, many challenges ahead of us, but I feel like we’ve come to a point in our lives where we can sit back and enjoy things a little more – the kids are a lot more independent but they still want to be around us. How much longer will we be able to enjoy family movie nights, weekend canoe trips and 10 day road trips before the kids don’t like us anymore?
This summer was one of the best we’ve had (although I think I feel that way every year!) We took some amazing vacations and made some wonderful, lasting memories together – I don’t want to let those feelings slip by without documenting them. I want to be able to look back in 6 more years and remember how it feels at this moment. I have 2 amazing kids who are kind, funny and smart. I couldn’t ask for better children. Yes, we’ve got our challenges for sure and things are not always easy, but I feel incredibly lucky and, as cliche’ as it is, #blessed.
So with that, its on to document the last 8 or so months … I hope you enjoy keeping up with the Heyl family!
