It has been a while since I blogged. I can tell it was the start of school. I am learning our new schedules and working hard to remember what I am supposed to be doing every day 🙂
The girls are loving their classes, teachers, and activities- It has been a nice transition this year.
The babies and I are figuring out our day too. I love the routine we have picked up. The morning is spent at mother’s morning out or biblestudy or having a friend over. We eat lunch around 11:45 and play or read until nap time. I am SOOOO thankful that they both still sleep in the afternoon. A dear friend brings Olivia and Emma home from school so I don’t have to wake the babies up from nap. I love getting time with the girls as soon as they come in from school. Then babies begin to get up and we take care of everyone’s needs until dinner 🙂
I’ve used the afternoons to organize, study, read, do the bills, clean, write, talk on the phone with friends or family. I finished The Reader- checking off one more from the book list. I put together my lesson plans for Wednesday night junior high youth group. I got my Room Mom stuff organized. We hosted a party on Friday night and I was able to do the menu planning and food prep for that.
It really feels like I am living in a different season- a predictable, easier season of life. No complaints here!
I did get to hold a PRECIOUS baby the other day and I only got slightly sad that I wouldn’t be doing that again with one of my own 🙂
