March Into Something New

That is such a lame title, but here's the thing: New Year's never phases me quite the way I think it should. Maybe if I started really thinking about how I could change on January first I wouldn't be here starting the second week of March just beginning to ponder something different.

But that's just water under the proverbial bridge. So it's March. Life goes on. For those of you who are regular readers, I'm giving you a head's up. Things are going to start looking different - and I want you to tell your friends! No more weeks on end between postings, and no more "inside my head" journaling exclusively. I'm going to try a new format and I am going to need some feedback.

Starting Monday, March 15, you'll be finding more daily goodies here at Mom In Progress. I'll be starting the day off with a very special "Mom Spot" that I pray will bring hope, encouragement, or laughter to your day. For a bit of local flavor, I will be sharing some wonderful Colorado "happenings." Expect to find tips for moms, families, outings... I'll try to keep it interesting. Then I'll close the day with a "C'est la vie" moment from my day. Life with kids is full of tears and giggles. Whether I've been throwing my hands up in a show of victory or defeat, you'll hear about it.

Yes, you counted right. That's three postings a day. Nothing fancy, but I do hope it will be more useful to you. So come back soon... I'll be keeping you posted (wink, wink)!

  1. Hey, I LIKE the title, Jenna! :) And even though I'm not a mom, I still like hearing the inside scoop! Love you.

  2. Good for you! I especially love the Colorado Happenings idea. Shoot those over to Mile High Mamas as well if you feel so inspired.

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Click HERE to read the entire post - you have to see the photographs! You'll also find all kinds of topics on sustainable and simple living. Enjoy!

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)


The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!

Make a Difference: Black Stallion Literacy Program

Although it's hard to pin down our very favorite summer activity, one would have to be our afternoon with the Black Stallion Literacy Project. I was unfamiliar with the program until it was brought to the HoneyBear Tree Preschool at our church and my children attended with other children from the community. The Black Stallion Literacy Project (BSLP) is a program that is well represented around the front range in Colorado, but extends across the country from it's roots in Florida.

Born of a family heritage in 1999, BSLP has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the nation. The purpose and goal of the organization is clear on their website:


"The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is an innovative partnership of educators, businesses, volunteers, education foundations, and staff members focused on promoting literacy through the winning combination of live horses and books by Walter Farley. The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…
