Things Noticed

I am quite surprised at what I noticed last week during the standardized testing.

I am VERY glad I don't have to get these boys and myself out the door early everyday.

My children all take direction and process it differently...and they all seem to need to hear it a few times!

My oldest is determined and meticulous, more than I think I knew!

My middle is so me!  Bless him...and Lord help him :)

My youngest is still a space cadet to watch but somehow always gets the job done.

I hate trying to pack lunches.

I love that my boys can have fun with kids of all ages.

I don't know how moms work full time and take care of everything else.

We've got some work to do in study skills.

I still don't care more about academics verses character and beliefs.

I love being home with my kids and out of the daily rat race that is America.

Good friends are a blessing.

Michelle's apple butter is the bomb!

Success is not measured by multiple choice bubbles.  

Nothing is worth worrying over, but everything should be prayed about.

I love God, and I trust in Him.

This life is but a vapor.

awesome hightlights and your comment "how to mom's who work full time take of everything?" we don't! it's an impossiblity- and we shouldn't expect it of ourselves. Personally I give my self ALOT of grace when it comes to taking care of the house. I definitely plan plan plan. Love cooking several dinners sunday so they have yummy homecooked meals during the week. Some other things that just take planning and discipline, I like to pretend I'm a stay at home mom/wife till 3:30pm when I go to work :o( - but those guys of mine (and Jade when she was home) defintely pull their weight. We are all needed to get all things done. On a very personal note I wish I could be home. Since becoming saved a few years back I have a new desire to cook- never cooked really before, I want to clean my house and organize- I was a complete slob before, serioulsy ask my mom it was bad. I just want to be home take care of the house fold my husbands laundry, cook for my family and not have to deal with the BS at work. the end LOL
