It has been far too long since our last post! With picture texts and video messaging I haven't taken time to blog. But all that is about to change!
This summer is sure to be filled with fun with Seven Peaks passes, sprinklers, sand boxes, and the other joys and craziness that come with small children, a small dog, and an over-ambitious mom. Dad gets thrown in the mix after work and on weekends, and is great at pitching in to help with the honey-do list that gets ever longer.
This morning was a primping party with Aunt Simone. She is living with us for the summer and working to save money for college, so the kids love to spend time with her. She painted the girls' fingernails and they are thrilled about it. Hannah has purple with purple sparkles, and Abby has blue with blue sparkles.
Ethan spent the morning outside with me while I cleared out the smaller front flower bed and planted the flowers I got on Monday. I started to work on the other flower bed this afternoon, but the girls decided not to go to sleep, so I am sitting here in their room waiting for them to go to sleep. Most days I need their naps more than they do!
My goal over the next few weeks is to address the meal-time drama that occurs every time I set something on the table in front of the girls. There will be fewer fights and screaming matches and more peace and kids feeding themselves. It will be great to look forward to sitting down to eat with the kids, instead of dreading it (3 times a day!) like I am currently experiencing.
