Today's best moment:  the joyous shouts of triumph when Jack and Aidan found something in. Book that proved me wrong about something. Such delight!

Today's worst moment:  getting a bit lost and arriving 7 min. late to a meeting. I HATE being late!

Weird, but funny

Jack and Aidan have been busy all morning with their favorite toy... A giant piece of fabric they used to make a flag. On it they wrote "Regiment 4th Pennsylvania Company D". You would think it was Christmas morning with how happy they are to have it!

Abby has been adding elements to her "spa":

She now offers massage, manicures, pedicures and salt scrubs. 

She was trying to get the boys to visit and get some treatments, so she invited them up. Aidan asked "what time are you doing it?"  She replied that they could come anytime, and Aidan clarified "No!  Are you doing it in 1863?"  When Abby confirmed that it was a modern spa, Aidan declined the offer. I guess to Aidan, if it isn't Civil War, it's CRAP! 

Yes, this is the fun we have during our break times!

Today's worst:  when Kydon teases the kids just to make them yell and scream... And it works. 


Today's best:  eating and talking with good friends after the kids were in bed. 

Today's worst:  fits during school time. Please tell me it will get better soon!

Today's best:  Abby being a total rock star helping with Clara all day when I was exhausted after working.
Today's worst: leaving work knowing the next nurse was going to have a terrible shift.  It was not things I could control or change, but I hate leaving things like that!


Today's best:  getting school work done on time and with very little fuss!  There is hope!

Today's worst:  giant spiders.  Yuck!

Today's best:  receiving awesome inspiration in church today.
“I feel that much good will result from the manner in which the Lord may direct the employment of the time now at my command, as I am surrounded by an interesting people, and in a most important field of labour, where a great work will be accomplished". Lorenzo Snow was just what I needed to hear!

Today's worst:  4 hours of no electricity. I need A/C!


Today's best:  the big kids having a great time tubing on the Chattahoochee River. 

Today's worst:  having to sit out with the baby and miss out on the fun!

Today's best:  super productive morning- cleaning, cooking, schooling.

Today's worst:  planning on a no work dinner of spaghetti and frozen meatballs only to discover I have no jarred sauce and have to make it from scratch!

Today's best moment:  art project at beautiful Stone Mountain... Homeschool at its finest!

Today's worst moment: baby woke up 3x in the night after sleeping all night for the past 2 weeks.

Today's best moment:  running with Abby.  It felt SO good to get out and MOVE and stretch my body, and to have a cute and fun companion made it all the better!

Today's worst moment:  getting frustrated at the mess in the house.  Like trying to shovel a sidewalk during a blizzard... Peeing in the wind... You get the idea!


Today's best moment:  nursing my baby.  I love, love, love it.

Today's worst moment:  deciding to eat at home instead of going out, based on the kids behavior at the last restaurant.  (But it was a super yummy dinner, so it worked to great!)

Today's best moment:  getting called off of work so I didn't have to go in!

Today's worst moment:  discovering that even though I prepped dinner ahead and had the oven all set on delay start, a power flicker meant it didn't start on time.  Luckily it didn't delay us by too much!


Today's best moment:  sneaking out to Target during piano lessons... Much nicer than sitting in a hot car with a baby for an hour and a half!

Today's worst moment:  when everybody needs something just as I am sitting down to eat!  Hello, I'm hungry too!


Today's best moment:  watching the kids play with all their friends from the neighborhood.  It is exactly the way I wanted them o grow up!

Today's worst moment:  trying to keep two 8 year old boys who are best friends on task with school work!
