My challenge of creating balance has somewhat just turned into how well I can juggle things. The girls are older and no doubt it is easier to get out, spend more time doing some stuff just for me and this has definitely been a blessing. Joel and I had our first weekend away without kids to a friends wedding in Wellington just a few weeks ago and I hope that the next year lets us do more things like this. We have played touch with a bunch of friends who we use to play with years ago and the kids have loved it, its nice to be able to feel normal again and not feel like the world of multiples (and 3 young children) is ruling our life.
We are hitting the ground running in 2014. The first 6 months will be spent building our house and hopefully making the move before winter (ideally). Work obviously for both of us and settling into life at school for Taya. She has had a taste of it for a few weeks in this last term but next year will be good for her. I hope to spend a bit more time with miss A & K doing stuff we haven't managed because its all been a bit tricky. Getting out to the zoo, maybe joining a little dance class or swimming lessons perhaps - will definitely get onto this in the new year. We have another special wedding in the next few months and will welcome a little Nasmith cousin for our girls so exciting times ahead!
So as you all see in the new year we hope you are all safe and well wherever you are. We wish you all the best for the year ahead. The last went extremely fast and I'm certain this one will too. I found a quote the other day which I really liked so here it is...A little reminder of what is truly important in life and a priority of mine over the next year!
Cherish your life
Cherish your Health
Cherish your Family
Cherish your Friends
For these are the things
that money can't buy and
will define your
