Squeezing this post in, in between dishes and housecleaning and getting ready to go in for a 3 to midnight shift. My marathon of working is almost at an end...I work Sunday and Monday 12 hour nights, then I'm off for a week. We have a big surprise planned for the kids during that time; I'll share that later, since Isabel reads my blog and I don't want to ruin the fun.
I miss my blog friends! I'm in withdrawal, and feel like I've missed out on a week of everyone's lives. Can't wait for things to settle down around here.
Baseball ends on June 26th, and while having a slower schedule will be nice, I will miss it. Elijah is doing an awesome job at pitching and fielding, although he struggles at hitting, which makes him get so down on himself. Why are we so hard on ourselves on the things we don't do well, instead of celebrating the things we DO do well? Sigh.
Isabel has read three books already this week! If she can't be found, all you have to do is look in the playhouse out back, and there she is, with a pillow and a book, content to read for hours. I love it!
Gabe is loving having his siblings home from school; we have gone swimming at the Y, hiked on trails (and found lots of poison ivy), gone to the library to visit Miss Barb and had lots of fun at Elijah's baseball games. Last week, he had hours of fun in the mud puddles at the fields, and although he was a mess to clean up, he had all of us in tears laughing at his antics. I wish I would've had my camera!
I have finished my spring quarter of college with another "A"; start Genetics and Organic Chemistry at the end of the month. I think these classes will be more of a challenge than American Film and Cultural Diversity; what do you think?
Once again, I will be MIA around blogland for a while...hope you're still around when I get back!
