It's too quiet!!
It's that time of year here where we're trying to do 800 things at once - wrap up the school year (we took a little time off right after Leah was born so now we're in catch up mode), enjoy this lovely weather with the family outside, do normal chores, that it's cut down on my late night fun time! :P
I agree with Laney- it's CRAZY busy!! Our calendar is all scribbled with recitals, concerts, graduations and field trips. I kind of hate how everything happens at once. This year we had to divide between watching our son's 8th grade graduation and our 2 DDs dance recital. It will be on at the same time. That's when having a large family gets complicated.
I have been doing some packing, but not very diligently. I think once the school craziness is over, I will be able to concentrate on packing.
Busy busy busy.... But hoping that things will start to calm down and change from removing the back deck, making planters, planning and planting the veggie garden to watching seeds grow and enjoying the yummy food produced... The latter being an equally important job that requires a lot less work!!
The kiddoes are wonderful and love 'helping' - and Ivy is actually helpful with he pint sized shovel and rake!
Tons of other things going on (can't keep track).. but most should be finalized by the end of June when DH should be having knee surgery.

Back in the hospital with Isaiah (see my update). We just lost our daycare subsidy because I wasn't able to work 20 hours/week, so now I have to become a SAHM. We are trying to figure out how to deal with the end of the school year with Isaiah being in the hospital and DH having to work. We are going to pay the daycare to keep the 2 little ones the rest of the week. The older ones will come home after school and hang out till dad gets home. Friday, there's no school, so we may have to find a friend who will watch them. Hopefully next week Isaiah will be either home or back in the rehab center where I won't need to be around 24/7. I can't wait to get some normalcy back in my life.

we're busy, too, but nothing like everyone else!
Just the normal hectic balancing of 3 little kids and wrapping my mind around adding a 4th. I have a bunch of family commitments and some vacation stuff this month. We're doing pretty well, though. Thanks for asking.
