I wanted to pop in and wish you all a happy weekend!
We are anxiously awaiting Daddy's arrival home tonight. He has been away all week and is only home for two days and is leaving again for another week. I am especially excited to have him home since the minute he left our entire family came down with Stomach Bug 2011.
I'm not sure I can put into words what all has transpired here this week but I know that if were not
for His grace .....
I will spare you the details.
The good news is that it's finally March! A huge turning point for me each year. The first day of spring is coming up in another week or so and daylight savings time is this weekend. The weather is finally warming up and the days are longer and I feel like I can start to get out of the house a little more.
I wanted to ask you if you would please say a few prayers for a supernatural week for us next week. The kiddies are all out of school for spring break and Daddy will be out of town the entire week.
This will be the first time since Preston's arrival that I will be solo with everyone for two weeks in a row.
Add in the exhaustion of five children with the stomach bug. No sleep. Cooking. Cleaning. Laundry and nursing a newborn and I am just a little nervous about next week.
They took everything I had this week!
I may have to pull a "Scarlet O'Hara" and "take to my bed" this weekend!!!
I have made a little list of special things to do for them and with them and I am going to try my best
to offer a somewhat enjoyable break from school.
I have the most energy (Ha!) in the mornings so I think we will head out for mini field trips in the a.m. and then come home for lunch and naps and then out to the park each afternoon with scooters and bicycles and "The Preston" in his stroller!
Here's hoping it all goes well. I'll let you know and will post pictures if I can hold my eyes open!
