Life is a whirlwind these days. I'm not complaining, just stating a fact. One day last week, this is what my day looked like:
Woke up late. Bo was out of town, so his internal alarm didn't back me up when my phone didn't charge and my alarm didn't play. Thankfully, I woke up in time to get the boys up and to school before the bell rang . . .
BUT, I was supposed to volunteer at the school at 8AM. I dropped the boys off at 7:45. I couldn't take Lydia with me, so I had to drive 15 minutes away to drop her at childcare and then 15 minutes back to school. Thankfully, the 8AM start time wasn't firm . . . they really didn't need me until 8:30 so I was on time, sort of.
I volunteered at school for 3 hours, having a fun time helping out with Field Day. The kids had a blast, and I had fun with a group of Nate's classmates.
I left the school at 11:15, and stopped home for a moment and was on my way out the door to pick up Lydia when the Health Office called to let me know that Colin was sick. So, I headed back to school again and signed him out, calling the pediatrician on the way.
I picked up Colin, we headed over to pick up Lydia by noon, stopped at Sonic for some lunch and made it to the doctor's appointment at 1:10. He was diagnosed with a sinus infection, and we got out of there just in time to pick up Nate after school and head to Target to fill his prescription.
Fed Nate snacks at Target while waiting for the prescription, then home again by 4 to quickly put together some sort of dinner and out the door before 5 to make it to Little League practice.
With a few variations, that's been my days lately. Almost non-stop activities -- but with fun stuff thrown in like the afternoon we spent at the zoo last week, and hopefully more fun things this week as the boys are on spring break.
I've decided that this summer we're taking a break from everything -- no sports, no music lessons, no dance . . . just a true break from it all! I'm looking forward to it, but I'm also enjoying the busyness of our days right now.
