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.
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 today...so 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.
