Mom Spot: Times Are A Changin'

As Bob Dylan would say, the times are a changin'. If you've been following Mom In Progress for any length of time you've probably noticed that I post three times a day... it's insane by almost any standard. It was a pace I kept up because, frankly, I couldn't decide what I loved talking about most: my motherhood experiences, things I love in Colorado, or topics of faith and encouragement. So I did all three.

Starting this week, I'm cutting down on posts. Again, if you're new around here, you may not notice a difference. If you are a long time reader, it's going to feel sparse. Look for a couple of Colorado posts 2-3 times a week - I'll still post them mid-day. Look for my personal thoughts on motherhood/parenthood/spousehood about the same amount and posted in the evening. In the morning, I hope you'll still find an encouraging word or an idea to get you excited.

New this fall, you'll find some guest bloggers and more giveaways!! Woo-hoo!

For those of you who are interested, I'm pulling back less because I've decided on what I enjoy writing about most (the jury is still out on that one), but because I am busy serving the community in other ways. I'm coordinating volunteers at my daughter's school and leading a Girl Scout troop. Believe me when I tell you you'll be hearing about both!

Thank for you support and for reading what I write. If there is something you want to hear about you can always send me a comment!! xoxo

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…

Mom Spot: Faith

The morning sky from my backyard
Faith is the art of holding on to things your reason has once accepted in spite of your changing moods
~ C.S. Lewis

Keep the faith today, even if your mood tells you otherwise.

Summer Plan 2012

Is anyone else asking themselves what happened to the last 3 months?? (Maybe you're wondering what happened to the last 3 years or just the last 3 days... at any rate you know how I feel, mom.)

Today was my kids' last day of school for the year. I'm sitting on the precipice of another summer. This was my first year of "freedom" - two kids in school full time. It felt good. But as predicted I packed every possible moment with housework, volunteering, writing, and working at my "real job" (ie. the one I actually get paid to do).

And it makes me wonder, how will I ever scale back and just enjoy the lazy days of summer?? How can I embark on a summer of fun and adventure without feeling like I'm staring into the abyss? I've done an unofficial survey of other moms I know and there's a mix of emotions. Some are ecstatic to have kids at home this summer; others are dreading it. I have a funny feeling the first group isn't telling the whole truth…
