Life seems to have become quite the balancing act around here. Jeremy's job is going very well, but is also very busy. We have gone from having daddy home every night between 5 and 5:30 to him working between 65 to 80 hours a week and most of the weekends. The past few weeks have been an adjustment period for all of us. We are learning though, and staying as busy as ever.
Katie is loving her dance class. She is also learning how to tumble and can do a somersault all by herself.
Thursdays have turned into our picnic and movie night. I let Kirsten pick what we eat and we have a picnic in the living room.
Katie has also learned how to ride her scooter. We try to spend time every day after school outside riding, especially now that it is finally cooling off.
As for me, I am trying to balance everything and maintain my sanity. I have 25 students this year and will probably end up with a few more at the middle school. I am also still the Organizer for our neighborhood Mom's Group, the Girl Scout Troop Leader, Room Mom for Kirsten's class, teaching Gospel Essentials on Sundays, and basically being a single mom Mon-Fri now. My saving grace is my gym time. I know that every morning I will have an hour to myself with no distractions. I cannot stress how important that time is for me both physically and mentally, and I highly recommend it to every mom out there.
We are figuring out that Jeremy's job will be slow the first two weeks of each month and insane the last two. So we are trying to capitalize on our time together these two weeks before things get crazy. So it has been difficult, but we are adapting and cherishing what time we do have together.
