*Evie coming downstairs all proud of herself in her new outfit, which she (with a little help from Berean) managed to get on all by herself!
*A couple minutes later heard the bath water running and ran upstairs to find Evie, in her new outfit, giving herself a fully clothed bath.
*Appliance man coming and verifying that it is, in fact, a huge leak from our dishwasher
*Helping Berean write her name, and finding that she, for some reason, is completely opposed to capital N's. This is a new hatred.
*Walking around the house wearing one slipper. I should write a poem about this.
*Listening to 'A Little Princess' in the Suburban and seeing my boys' sense of justice take root.
*Teaching the Awana Sparks about gentleness, and realizing that I could use more gentleness in my life.
*Having a friend ask me a question that made me realize that I am a significantly different person than I used to be.
*Trying to carry on a conversation with another 'mom of many'.
*Finally got the invitation to the birthday party that Deacon lost. Thankfully the party hasn't happened yet.
*Letting Berean call Noah and her Grandma on the phone just so that she could give a play by play of our day to someone other than me.
*Running 4 miles at the Y next to a friend while discussing homeschooling, sickness woes, needing locks on our doors and our children.
*Realizing after my run that I am still not completely recovered from my recent illness. My energy levels are subpar.
*Doing pushups multiple times.
*Finding my planner/calendar in the garage after searching the entire house for it multiple times.
*Driving my new Suburban and comparing pros and cons of it compared to my minivan.
*Giving multiple spelling tests.
*Learning about the Arctic Circle. Anyone know who was the first person was to make it all the way across the Northwest Passage by ship?
*Talking Berean into going to craft class when her daddy had accidentally told her she was going swimming.
*Hauling 5 kids out of the house twice in sub zero conditions. At least it was sunny!
*Telling the kids that they were going to have a new cousin and hearing what they would name a baby. B would name a baby "Honey" and Deacon thinks that "Red" is a cool name. Lincoln is partial to his own name.
*Cleaning up apple juice spilled by a baby who doesn't yet understand open cups and straws.
*Washing dishes by hand and walking on subflooring.
*Laughing about bitstrips on facebook
*Discussing our days with Noah
*Informing a child that they can't fall asleep in our bed because they are too heavy to carry back to their bed.
