week in review

So, here are some of the things that have kept me busy this week.

Teaching piano lessons.
Hosting preschool for the last time this year.
Visiting teachers came.
Derrick's Kindergarten Music Program.
Hearing appointment for Abbie. Her speech is not exactly clear at this point, so we needed to rule out that she was having trouble hearing the words. All is fine, we may need a little bit of therapy, but she will likely just grow out of it.
Soccer practice. We also have an early morning game tomorrow.
Home teaching with my husband. His partner is not really one to go with him.
Cleaning my bathrooms.
Lots of laundry. We just moved Gracie into her normal crib, and unfortunately her portable crib has become a dumping ground for my clean laundry, which my husband has been folding for me when he gets home. How bad is that? I just need to take the crib down so I'm not tempted.

Wow, when I list it all there, it really doesn't feel like that much stuff, but it sure seemed to keep me occupied. Anyways, the most interesting item of the week may be the fact that we, like everyone else, may be moving in a couple of months. Just in town, and not because we are selling a house. We are actually renting right now, and weren't even thinking about leaving our current house until we are ready to buy, but we just learned of a great rental that is coming available around the beginning of July. Jon could walk to work, and I would be neighbors with one of my good friends. We would be back in the same ward again, which would be great, even if it is 1:00 pm church this year! I just registered the kids for school, but they would have to go to a different elementary school if we did it, which would be fine. It's a great deal, and I'm sure we'll probably do it since we are still a little ways off from buying a house here. We're going to look at it on Monday.

OK, I'm tired and I have to get up early tomorrow. Derrick has a 9:00 am soccer game, but I'll need at least 30 minutes to fight with him about getting dressed in the morning. It has been like pulling teeth lately! Does anyone else have this problem? I'm hoping that it is a phase, and while I love having him in school, it sure will be nice not to have to rush in the mornings come summer vacation.

WOW! You are a busy momma. Don't think for a second that any of those things can be minimal dutys with 3 kids. I just got back into the swing of taking care of the household and burnt the dinner tonight. I couldn't even do that without a distraction. You are doing great to keep the kids alive and healthy.

You have had a lot going on. I sometimes list the things I have done in my head and it never seems that big of a deal, but it is! Good luck with the rental! :)

Good luck with the moving thing! It will be nice though to be so close to work and friends. I've decided that I never make lists of things I have done because you always look back and say, "that's all?" But remember that you had crying kids to take care of, a baby to feed, meals to prepare etc. the everyday things that can easily fill the whole day. You accomplished a lote on top of all of those things!

Wow. I can't even imagine the kind of busy you face. My two are still both so small, so I better enjoy before school & activities fill the slate forever.
