So starts another week of school and chores and projects and life.
First thing stumbling out of bed, we turned up the worship music.
Oatmeal bubbles away, soon to be topped in decadence by Olivia.
Susanna starts browning some stew meat for tonight's dinner, and Clay coaches
a couple little ones unloading the dishwasher. Emerald has had her morning goat
milk and is now playing happily on the floor - a dribble of spit-up escapes, all part
of the morning routine. (Daddy says Feta cheese will never be the same after Emerald) ;-)
Laptops emerge, Math lessons can be heard faintly, readers find cozy corners where
they wrap up in blankets, and drawing paper is used up like water by emerging artists.
Lately it is popular to ask mom "can I borrow one of your pencils?" The answer is always
the same "yes, but please put it back when you're done" Of course there are never as many
in that container by the days end, but mom is learning to keep those pencils magically
restocked and expect missing drawing implements to be part of the cost of learning :-)
Duties call~ still some beds to be made and happy babies don't stay that way indefinitely.
Breakfast finds a place on the table between colored pens and once everyone is fed the day
officially begins. Whatever the schedule holds all the minutes will be full, and as for me?
One can hope this morning entails a shower before lunch :-)
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
