Catching our Breath

T getting into mischief and getting caught!

The boys started school this week AND soccer practice. B & J both are doing soccer, again, this year and are very excited. It has been a VERY busy week ... organized chaos I call it. T is chomping at the bit to go to school. He'll go 4 days a week starting the 27th, and I know he'll just love it. I'm glad it's Friday. It will give us all a chance to catch our breath and get ready for the new routine next week. This definitely is the busiest time of year for us because of all of the soccer practices and games. We're busy, but happy ... and that's a good thing, right?!

As soon as his brothers left for school on Tuesday, T started right into his mischievous ways. I could hear the water running in the bathroom, and I told him several times to turn off the water. As soon as he heard me approaching, he became very upset and told me to "Go Away!" Then I KNEW there would be trouble, and I was right! He had plugged up the bathroom sink, filled it up with water, and was using his thumb to plug up the overflow hole! I came just in time to quell an impending flood! I snapped this picture of him and his disappointment is evident. He has kept me incredibly busy while his 3 big brothers are gone away at school. He is just so busy.

Two nights ago, J was complaining that bedtime was too early at 8 o'clock. The boys were all in bed just a few minutes after 8 and I tell you what! They were zonked out by 8:10, drooling!

So, yeah, we're all adjusting ... even Mom. I have been so busy with T, or getting the others to & fro that my laundry pile is now taller than Mt. Everest. G was looking for some socks and I told him "Happy Digging!" Hey, at least they are CLEAN.

I'm trying squeeze in some time to read my book, "New Moon" by Stephenie Meyer. It's very good! I've been enjoying this series.
