Wow! What a day! You are incredible and have inspired me. Not trying to make you jealous but today I spent a lot of time just sitting (watching my children not get eaten by the bear, of course), thinking about all the things I could be doing if I just got off my butt....

Something tells me, being the mother of 3 boys, that this is rather typical of your days. And I'd say your family is lucky to have you. Agreed... awesome.

Just another day in the life of a mom with 3 kids (or maybe any number of kids)!! I've never written my days out like that, but I'm guessing it would look somewhat similar! I'm sure you're right back at it today!
Whew! yup those were the days!
It'll be nice to have the summer break as far as getting out the door on time so often - BUT - I know that means more entertaining of the kids. I think those boys should be able to spend hours out in "the PIT" though! ! I'm looking forward to some good evenings at the beach together too!

Phew, exhausting isn't it?! I long for the day when the boys are older and want to actually sleep in longer!
We are about to do similar things too. Jaxson has Pioneer day next week and they're heading to one of the museums in town & they've been watching episodes of Little House on the Prairie! And Eli has the Fire Station field trip next week!
What fun - cute pictures!
