I came home to 2 sleeping big girls and three happy 2-year olds all snug into bed reading books.

The babysitters survived! One of them did say that she has a new appreciation for what I do because she was tired. You build up endurance...I know that I didn't have it when I was in high school.

It was so refreshing to hang out with our small group tonight. I needed it! I love my family and my home, but I am social. I like to get out of the house and these past weeks have had me feeling a little claustrophobic. I know that this season shall too pass, but I still need to keep my sanity.

Tomorrow night I have something very exciting happening. I am the college girls small group mission project for the night. A whole group of them is coming to my house to clean it. Things will get done around here that never get done like dusting the tops of my cupboards and bookshevles and well dust anything because I hardly ever dust. They are going to wipe down my is just not a priority at the end of my day. Oh - how about this one...go through all my drawers of colored pencils and sharpen them all and throw away dry markers. Every home school mommy has a plethora of those things sitting around.

I have also been very blessed with meals coming in on Mondays and Thursdays. This has saved me so much time and energy the past few weeks. My crazy life would not be possible if there weren't many people surrounding me and supporting me. I feel very loved. Actually I feel loved beyond all measure.

HURRAY for a night out with people older than 6!! I'm SOO glad for you. Enjoy those little cleaning angels tomorrow and the sparkling places they will leave behind. So great to hear of the ways God is providing for you even down to small details.
Love you!

So glad you enjoyed your time out with your hubby and that the babysitters survived! ") It was great to see you in church on Sunday. Five kids is fun, but 6 is even more fun! LOL Enjoy these last few weeks before Jack is in-arms.
