everyone's been sick around here lately. Graham brought it home with him from school on Thursday. stayed home friday with a fever. then Max got pink eye on Saturday. I was sick on Monday. Sadie had a fever last night. And Amron got sick on Tuesday! But even more sick today.

I'm sick of this! ha ha

i'm actually just sick of not leaving the house. i miss my amigas!!

it's kind of funny how when you are trying so hard everything goes wrong.
wait, is that funny?

so, remember the broken arm thing? well, the day before i broke my arm I made all these really good/hard goals; run in the morning before the kids woke up, read my scriptures and study spanish and do an exercise video everyday. well, the morning of, I woke up at 4:45, went running, came home and read my scripture, and studied Spanish. Then after I took Graham to school and put the babies down for a nap I turned on the exercise video, tripped and broke my arm.

i was pretty discouraged! like thinking, ok what am I supposed to learn from this?
after thinking for awhile I thought this will be the perfect opportunity to really focus on my Spanish. I can't really exercise so I can devote all that time to studying.

and I did! for a few days.

Then Graham got sick. And everyone got off their schedules. And everyone takes naps at different times and at least one of them hasn't slept through night in a week. so, now I'm tired and sick. and couldn't go to my Spanish class.

i guess what I'm getting at is life never goes the way you plan.

our meds:


Graham is going to school tomorrow!
And I have 2 weeks until my arm is better!
Also the kids are going to start swimming classes as soon as my brace comes off. They are gonna love it. And they have to wear swim caps! And I have to wear a swim cap! haha
And my birthday is in 41 days!
And my parents are going to come visit in 42 days!
And we are going to celebrate Graham, Max and Sadie's birthdays while they are here!
that means 3 pinatas!!
And maybe tacos!
And I really am learning Spanish!
And life really is great!

this morning at Costco a guy came up to us and was saying the kids are so cute and stuff then asked Sadie, "Como te llamas?" she didn't hesitate for a second before she said, "Sadie"clear as day! She knows Spanish! hahaha I was so shocked!


  1. Oh Brooke, I am so sorry! And let me just say that I really needed to read this post. I have been miserable these past two days...hardly able to take care of Kylee & just really feeling sorry for myself. You are a great example & I feel lucky to have you as my friend. I hope things get better for you really soon!

  2. Hahaha! I love reading your blog! I'm glad I'm not the only one who has to remind myself that the constant interruption of goals/schedules/good intentions=real life and that it's actually something to be grateful for! Your family is TOO CUTE! I'm jealous you're all learning Spanish too!

  3. Anjane! I'm so sorry you're sick. The kids are almost better so you should have Lincoln drop Kylee off when he has class or something. Hope you feel better! Being sick is the WORST.

  4. Ashley! YOUR kids are so cute! We need to get together this summer. They will be bffs! haha
