Today has been a catch up from behind day, full of emails to teachers regarding make-up work from last week, as well as visits to the doctor for immunizations (21 shots, all together, for 7th grade, kindergarten, and the little girls). We’ve spent time on the phone, time in the car, time with the calendar trying to work everything out for the insane month of May.
This is what I
I’d been doing instead. (Notice I didn’t write
have been doing laundry.)
I wish I’d tried
out for a Family Night treat:

And speaking of shopping and baking, I am totally in love with
these cake stands
sitting open on my desktop for more than a week. I wish I had time to try it. Along with finishing all the other ridiculous projects I accumulate.
But it’s raining. And it’s Monday. So we’ll be doing homework.
And that’s ok. The above list is just stuff. Trying to motivate 5 children to get caught up on homework is what life is really all about. Sort of. Or at least, I hope so. ‘Cause that’s what I’m doing!
Hopeful Homework… I mean, Homemaker.
