It seems like I only get to blog on Fridays. It is our only day fully at home. The day where we can get a bit caught up. Thus time for blogging. I desire to do better. But in this season of life, I am raising kids. Raising them to love their Lord, and be Godly functioning adults. At least that is the goal.
This week we took spring break. Yes, I know, we just took a week off for Disney World. But, you know. We have the flexibility to do so. Everyone worked a bit harder last week and will work a bit harder next week but it is worth it. Plus, everything else we normally do was cancelled, so it has been a nice reprieve.
Now, today, is bringing it all back in to get ready for next week. A few weeks ago I declared every other Friday cleaning day. So far so good. Trying to do a little each day wasn't working. We are just in and out of the house too much to make that happen. Each night we would go to bed without it done. So we are trying this.
And that means even on Spring Break we clean. I mean, after all, we took a week trip to Disney and have had lots of play days this week. It is time.
Today's report: Bathrooms and bedrooms all cleaned by 9:00. Yay! Because of the diligence, we are taking a short break before we conquer the next thing. Yay!
Oh, one more thing we are doing this week. David and I try to get time with each of the kids alone, like David and Jake go hunting, David and Sara Beth go hunting, Sara Beth and I go shopping, Katie and I go somewhere together. But, this week, David and I, together, are taking each kid out. It has been so nice for us and the one child. They get our undivided attention, and we are able to listen to just one conversation. It has proven to be a sweet blesssing.
Other things this week I am thankful for - my kiddos at home with me, a husband working hard for us, the great sunshine, windows open, clean house. Oh, and one more: only 8 weeks of school left!!
