Evelyn's choice

I just gave Evelyn the choice of what we should do together while Ezra is at storyhour. . .(after rejecting reading and a tea party) make banana bread or clean windows. . .she chose cleaning windows -- huh, and I was hoping to avoid that job!

Someone forgot to tell me. ..

Someone forgot to tell me that we were going to start eating a lot of food at supper. The past few nights I have made what I thought was a good amount of food, only to have everything disappear and the dreaded, "I'm still hungry!" announced by more than one child. We've done a lot of pb sandwiches, pb with celery, bananas. . .Okay, I get the hint. I have to think larger amounts for supper tomorrow.

On another random note, I want to remember that I think it is completely unfair that a baby (Lucas) can catch up on their sleep during the day after a night of sleeplessness, while a mama (ME!) has to pry her eyes wide open all day long, only to go through another interrupted night. . .

Reading


A joy and a challenge, reading to all five at once!

A weekend harvesting


The kids, minus Lucas, spent the weekend harvesting with Grandpa Bundt. I went to Omaha with Lucas to shop with Crystal. A wonderful time was had by all and Evelyn informed me that she did not miss me or Lucas!

Sunday night

It's Sunday night. Joel is at Bible study. The kids are in bed. I'm working on planning menus for the week, listening to Evelyn sing her heart out in the bedroom. I should probably go tell her to be quiet, for the sake of the other two in the room. . .I just don't have the heart. It's too precious to hear, ". . .Bible tells me so. . ."
