oh man-

I started a blog post and I don't have any pictures to post, and I just realized it's 2:09 and I have to leave in 30 minutes to get some of the kids from school, take them to the park, have a snack, then go back & get the remaining kid from school... busy.

I know- I could be less busy.  I could make my life easier.  I could send my kids to public school (which is fine) where they would ride the bus and I wouldn't have to live the life of a taxi cab driver, but I love their school, so I will sacrifice.

A lot is going on lately.  My kids just got over being SUPER SICK with this ridiculous germ that kept circulating.  They are all fine now, and praise GOD I didn't get sick- Josh was out of town last week when they were all sick :(  Taxing on mommy, but just another lesson in life.  What was the lesson?  Oh- yes- life isn't EASY.

Christian is adjusting to kindergarten.  It's been a little tough on him (long day for a little guy!) but he is making friends and beginning to enjoy it.  Big Bunny (his best friend stuffed animal) goes to school with him every day.  I'm thankful he has a teacher who allows this. I've also been eating lunch with him a lot, which helps.

Isaac & Abigail are doing great- they are so happy to be back in school.  hmmm...what does this say about me?  I'm kidding, I know it's nothing personal, they just love school.  That is a very good thing!

Elijah auditioned for the school musical.  They are doing "The Little Mermaid, Jr."  He got the part of Flotsam.  He didn't want to audition because the musical sounded "girly" but I encouraged him for a few reasons.  Many of his friends were auditioning, he has a fantastic memory, a good stage presence, and I thought the responsibility would build some extra character.  Many kids tried out, and out of 150, he is one of the 20ish to have a speaking and singing role.  I'm proud of him.

If I didn't mention it in another post?? Josh got a new job!  He is very excited about it.  He is back in sales, but he doesn't have to do much traveling outside of IN.  No, he's not selling vacuum cleaners door to door, so don't worry.  He won't be knocking anytime soon.  He works for a distributorship selling electircal, pneumatic, and hydraulic products to major manufacturers like GM, etc... He's just not the type to sit behind a desk. I'm proud of him.

Okay- better go pack that snack now and get a certain baby up from his nap.  I can't believe he took one!  Lately he has been protesting.  Have a blessed rest of the week!
