We’ve enjoyed a break from trips to Seattle but I had completely unrealistic expectations of how these two weeks would go. I thought there would be more downtime, but instead I have been swamped! I’ve been trying to get up early to have a bit of quiet before the kids swarm down the stairs. As of 6:00 this morning, my desk is nearly tidy and I feel a bit more prepared for the day.
Yesterday we had ten dental appointments. My little kids love going to the dentist who gives good prizes and great toothbrushes. You can see Eby holding Mr. Slurpy in his mouth after his fluoride treatment. We’ve also had haircuts (with more needed), a couple of doctor visits, and lots more errands in preparation for the school year.
I am still working on getting my homeschool materials ready as well as putting together a master schedule with everyone’s classes and activities on it. Sometimes life with lots of kids is like living in a puzzle that I am trying to put together.
We are also trying to get to the pool most afternoons since it closes next week. My friend, Signe, and I were in the water surrounded by our crazy kids yesterday. I commented that I hoped the pool would clear out and the chaos would settle down. She looked around and replied that we would be the ones who needed to leave in order for that to happen.
I have lots to write about and hope to make it back to my computer one day soon.
