Things Learned in August
9. I have been a little to lax with some things this summer and need to step up the discipline. As a family, we have drank too much soda. Since my kids are teens, it is a balance between helping them find their own limits and having strict rules. The same goes with exercising and watching TV. We have more options here and need to take advantage of that. I know it starts with me setting the example and also setting limits for them as their mom.
10. I love being at mom’s. I already knew this but it is a good reminder. My mom lives in the country in Iowa. It is green. It is peaceful. I have no expectations. My days have been spent doing school with the kids, exercising, and getting work done. Our evenings have been full of playing games together, reading and even catching up on a few TV shows. Mom has spoiled us with meals from her garden and making us feel at home here. Mom and I play scrabble and so far the total is 1:1.
What are some things you have learned this month?

My mom always made sure she took each of us kids out for a one-on-one special "date night," which we loved. Good for you!
And thank you so much for your comment on my blog, TJ! Glad you enjoyed the post.
Hi TJ! Thanks for posting your things you learned! I'm visiting from Emily's blog. Where are you living overseas? Interesting that you are in Iowa. I live in Ankeny! Where does your mom live? Such a small world. I can relate to all you are going through with your teens. My "kids" are 25(married), 23 and 20. I don't know how that happened! Blessings to you!
