I've been hard at it for the last week preparing and teaching the summer session. Lord, did I ever forget just how tiring it is to teach little kids all day! You constantly have to be "on" and an entertainer/educator extraordinaire! Seriously, it's been about all I can manage to drive home at the end of the day! Hopefully it will all get better once the kids and I settle into our schedules.
My family had a great time at the lake though, the kids all loved the boat and my dad even let me lay in the sun for awhile while he ran herd on the kids as we drifted around the lake. It was heavenly! Alek had such a good time that he's still there. He doesn't write, he doesn't call... I wonder if he will just show up one day?
Lukas and Mikah are... energetic and inquisitive. Does that sound positive??? They are both adorable and love learning new things everyday. For example, today Mikah learned what happens when you open your sippy cup and dump the entire contents all over the satellite receiver and the DVD player. Bye, bye Treehouse and bye, bye Bob. Oh, the joys! Lukas has figured out how to spin. I love the look of sheer joy on his face, but why does he insist on spinning right next to the corner of the wall, the table, and the entertainment stand???
Which brings me to my thought for the day; no matter how tired you are as a mommy, the world keeps on spinning and you have to do your best to not lose your balance.
Wish me luck with that one!
