I have been busy working on our home study paperwork and preparing for our dossier. Lauren is getting ready to leave for camp this weekend and we are busy getting everything in order for her. I am working on an exciting opportunity for my business and have an order that needs to be made and shipped. Summer has arrived and the kids ask everyday if they can go to their grandparents and swim. Swimming everyday doesn't get to happen and I feel bad because I am either to busy or too pooped out to go anywhere. I need two of me!
I am proud of my children and how they are stepping up to help out. Johnathan has been so helpful working in the yard watering, picking up dog poop, and filling in holes that Chloe has dug. He does this all on his own without prompting. I was watching him from the house last week. He had is iPod in his ears, gloves on and working so hard. My heart smiled and swelled! He is only six years old, but such a young man. The girls have been helping around the house. Lauren has even made dinner a couple of times. She makes a killer BLT!
Am I overwhelmed with everything that needs to be done? Yes. Is it worth the late nights, early mornings, and upset stomach? TOTALLY! I'm expecting and this one is no different than my other pregnancies....other than I don't have the excuse to eat two bowls of cereal at night. :)
