whats goin’ on:

sorry no pictures – no time! but of course, there’s enough time to post a little blog ;)! i’ve been super busy lately. this year is turning out to be more scheduled than i have ever been with kids. i think its a good thing for me, but i’m definitely still adjusting to school 3 days a week, church, awana, park day, and bible study. and in that mix, we’re trying to figure out when we can get gracie started in a ballet class! nuts, i know! the girl loves to dance and has been asking to take dance again literally for over 2 years now. bad mom. so beyond all of this, i have other things i “need” to get done, and can really only get done when the kids are all asleep. silas generally doesn’t go to sleep for the night until i do, about 10ish. but tonight he went down around 8:30. here’s what i’m working on/ need to be working on: the kids halloween costumes – more on that later, lily’s birthday party invites and details – more on that later, silas’ announcements – more on that later, a new sewing project – more on that later, and my bible study homework. so lots to do with little time in my day to do them. all good things that i’d like to do at any time of the day, but not really possible at this stage of my life! its all about adjusting! hopefully soon i’ll post some updates with pictures on my progress on these projects!
ps – to my blogger buddies: i’ve so enjoyed all your posts lately, but so rarely get to comment! i’m so sorry, i know how fun it is to get comments, but typing left handed while nursing a baby and breaking up a sister squabble at the same time can be quite difficult some (most) days! i’m sure you all forgive me!

    excuses, excuses, lindsey. did you read jacquelyn’s blog today about excuses? ha, ha. i’m totally joking. i only get to blog so much because all 3 of my kids lie down somewhere around the same time. and i don’t make halloween costumes, i buy them so i won’t have to do penance for all of the bad words i’d say. you are a great mommy and that is evidenced by your sweet kids and happy husband. well, at least i think sean is happy–i haven’t seen him lately. it’s a safe assumption, i’m thinking. okay long enough comment.

    oh and i forgot to say that i’m not doing women’s Bible study and eli only goes to school 2 times a week which makes a big difference and we’re not doing awana. so, basically, i don’t do anything but blog! :) but i do try and blog for Jesus (as corny as that sounds.)

    Here are some lyrics from an old (1990’s) country song-
    “little sister don’t you do what yer big sister dun.”
    Make sure you don’t go,go,go, till your gone.
    We can get so wrapped up in the going and doing that we completely miss everything.
    love you!
