4th - Better Late than Never

Better late than never....
The 4th of July

It was Papa's Birthday.
Mark had amazing fireworks.
Everyone had a blast. 

Everything Is Perfect - For Now

Many many pictures I have called my "All Time Favorite"
This one is my current favorite!! 
I love everything about it...
except Brecken's little feet aren't sticking out from his jeans.
Beyond that, it's perfect. 
Their smiles.
Brecken's little teeth.
The way they hold on to their little brother.
It's perfection.

This picture is perfect for me to talk about how challenging it is to have three kids.  (I totally deleted hard and inserted challenging)  It is hard.  It takes a lot of organization.  It takes a lot of time.  Divide and conquer is our theory lately.  It takes a lot of patience.  

To do this right you must devote your life.

Tonight was the most perfect night.
I had dinner planned - no it was not a full moon -
chicken, steamed veggies, au grautin potatoes and a delicious salad.
(Yes, I typed that out because it made me feel good!) 

Brecken tried new foods (bananas and chicken) that kept him busy.
Christian is working on his table manners.
Victoria talks through the entire meal.
Mark and I get up for everyone's requests.
It was bliss.  

Tonight was a night I would yell down the street, "Everyone should have three children!!"
And really mean it.

Now, mind you, tomorrow might be the night I may (want) yell, "Nobody should ever have THREE children!!!"   

You never know what's going to happen.  I'm always on my toes.  Or at least have my eyes (half) open.

A Million Bucks

Today I felt like a million bucks when the lady who observed me last week told me, "When I left your classroom, I called my husband and told him I wished Nathan was in your class.  He would just love it!"

No better compliment than someone saying they wish their kid was in your class!
