I was supposed to run preschool VBS all week, but due to low enrollment we cancelled it. Can I insert a muted "yahoo!" in here?
VBS takes lots of time to plan and then essentially wipes out all my energy for an entire week. So, even though I am sad for the kids who were going to come, I am super happy for myself.
I think my yard, my garden and my house is grateful too.
So, even though we are looking at (another) rainy week- I am on a mission to get stuff done and to continue having summer fun with the boys.
It always amazes me when moms complain about summer and having to spend all summer with their kids. I LOVE summer. My love of summer probably stems from the fact that since we are homeschooling, my workload is significantly decreased in the summer and I am used to having them around all of the time anyway.
I am also coming to grips with the fact that with 4 kids, a smallish house and a "do-it-yourself" mentality, my environment is never going to be wide open with tons of free space.
My new goal is to always have at least 1 shelf/space empty in each room so that I never feel like we are at absolute capacity. The problem is, everytime I empty a shelf, someone else in the house sees it as an opprotunity.
Oh well, it is summer and I don't care!
