Today is Chief's Birthday so let us say :
HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHIEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We love you and miss you so much!
So today was errand day, THE DAY OF THE WEEK I DESPISE! I loaded the children up and we were off after lunch. Orren is basically giving up the afternoon nap but I thought he might sleep in the car. No such luck. I guess he is exactly like his sister. Early morning lark 6:00 AM, 10:00 nap, 6:30 PM bedtime. Not a bad schedule unless you are a night owl like me.
Olivia is doing very well with her studies and is enjoying this new system. I think it is fantastic she is getting a private school education right here in my kitchen. It really makes a difference on days that it storms or the children are dismissed early for what ever reason. I am with her and I am raising her. I am who she tells her hearts desires and I am who influences what she thinks and I get to watch her grow into the Christian Woman she is becoming. It is my most precious blessing.
Orren is still clinging to Mommy a little too much. It is preventing me from doing very much around here. I am looking for his new Bunk beds. I think we are definitely doing the dark wood from the Pottery Barn Kids ( I know BIG shock, I need to own stock) They really are the ones I like the best and the most functional. I need to find him a chest of drawers also. Then maybe I can get his room all organized.
Joe is working long hours this week and it looks as though I will get to play single mommy again. I will keep you updated how we do. At least it is a short week.
Kayla's wedding is this weekend, & Grayson turns one. Lots going on!
See you tomorrow!
These are pictures that Chief sent us of the Gustav aftermath
This is the condo after Gustav! It did great.
