Date Night Update

Remember this post and this one? Well... um... we're slackers. Not just in updating the blog with our adventures, but in doing them. Oh shoot! As I type this, I'm realizing that we haven't even opened June's and it's already half-way through the month. So so sad.

Perhaps the saddest part is that as I look over our dates for April and May, we've completed one half of them... and not the "fun" parts! Take a look:

April
Write out homeschool philosophy (CHECK!)
Do a science experiment--I even have a 2 liter bottle on my kitchen counter patiently waiting

May
Ready the nursery for Pickle (CHECK!)
Outing to John J Jeffries thanks to my brother and sister-in-law


I think it's safe to say that David and I both really struggle with making time for each other--especially time away from our household/family duties. We love spending time together, but that just doesn't happen often enough. Sadly, most evenings, once Sweet Potato is in bed, I'm heading to bed myself and David enjoys a few minutes of alone time. Weekends lately have been full of projects and yard work-- both worthwhile ventures but it's time we got back to us. Maybe we'll just hold off opening the rest of the envelopes until we get caught up.

Since Father's Day is this weekend, perhaps we'll sneak away for a couples walk on the beach after our sweet little one falls asleep. We'll have to see. I guess the material point is that despite our slackerhood, we're still trying, still in love, and still enjoying each other.
