This is Why I Haven't Blogged Lately

This is a typical weekday.

6:00 a.m.--Go walking with Carmen (3 days a week).

7:30 a.m.--Get three kids up and dressed, with an attitude somewhere between cheerleader and drill sergeant.

9:00 a.m.--Kids arrive at elementary school.

11:45 a.m.--Twins return home from morning kindergarten.

1:30 p.m.--Pick up Tyce from high school.

3:30 p.m.--Pick up Mary from elementary (though most days she walks).

4:00 or 4:30 p.m.--Volleyball practice for Tyce, Activity Days for Mary, and friends over to play.

6:00 p.m.--Dinner.

It's a good thing I have that 2 1/2 hour break while the kids are in school. That's when I do errands, cleaning, and visiting. The days I blog my house is a mess; the days I clean I don't have time for the computer.

It's not that I'm so incredibly busy as it is that I am jumping in the car every other hour.

I only have a moment now before I have to get Tyce early from school to go to the neurologist. Tomorrow the twins have dentist appointments. Just the usual stuff that moms do, of course.

You know how I told you that Mary is writing a story? Well, Tyce is writing one as well and it's really good! I have never known him to write for fun but he's hand-written about 20 pages so far. It is set in the medieval times and deals with themes of controlling parents (!), joining the army, physical prowess, and romance.

I went to Deseret Book and they didn't have what I wanted I wasted my short free time for nothing. At least I got to get out of the house, which didn't happen yesterday.

All right, shoes are on kids and now we're getting in the mini-van. Wish us luck that the boys will be good at their big brother's appointment.

That's all for now.

Those are some unusual school times. I have to get the kids up at 6:30 to catch the bus at 7:20, Jessie goes from 8-11:30 and Brandon is 8-3:30. Do they accomplish much with only two hours for kindergarten? I understand how you feel about the house. I have four hours and I can't get it all done.

love it. i so wish i could read their stories!

i don't know how you keep things together. i feel near-dysfunctional sometimes just trying to get my two to school on time. the few extra things we have going on i either forget or we're super late.

plus maintaining the blog! gold star.
