Okay, I love the rain and I love rainy days. But, rain, rain and more rain d oes notmix with 5 children! 3 of whichjm are g bojyu s big enough to get b e b res6ftless.
So, we went outn today to Costco. c That was funv .
Caleb is sitting on myhly lap if you havn ‘vth guess edbl.
Okay, I put him down.
This one didn’t turn out as well, but I only took ONE shot and I didn’t edit it at all, the whole process took about 4 minutes. This is what my children are running around looking like. Notice D. He was completely dressed 10 minutes ago. He’s lost his shirt somewhere. Grace makes me laugh. And, you guessed it, this was RIGHT BEFORE C fell off the step. He’s okay now.
I read in Psalms today. What an encouragement!
The first day of summer vacation was yesterday and by the end of the day I wondered if I would survive. Today is better, I was thinking this morning: well, who ever said having 5 children would be easy? It’s NOT easy, but it IS worth it.
Tomorrow a babysitter is coming to watch all the children all day long. I am going to a homeschooling convention by myself. I am very much looking forward to this experience. I am going to take my notebook and some money. I feel a little strange going alone, I usually have a child, a friend, or my husband along with me wherever I go. But, this will be good for me. Perhaps I will make new friends! Certainly I will at least learn new things, and that is ALWAYS a good thing.
I am trying to drink more milk.
I am reading a lot (when the kids are sleeping).
I am trying to stay focused on my priorities.
I am figuring out a schedule. 2 things are for sure. They aren’t getting up until 7 and they’re all going to lay down and rest at 2 every day.
I can’t believe that tomorrow is FRIDAY!
Like as a Father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him. For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust. As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children’s children; to such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments and do them. Psalm 103:13-17
