Sorry for my lack of blogs lately, but things have been a bit crazy around here... I am watching two of our neighbor's kids in the afternoons while she runs the Parker Street Academic Enrichment Program. I'm glad they are here for a bunch of reasons, but most importantly I have come to realize just how lazy I had gotten with my kids between nap time and dinner. It was so easy to just throw on a movie for them because they hadn't watched too much tv or I deserved some down time. How selfish of me!
So although I am sad that it took someone else's children to draw it to my attention, I am happy to be more involved now in the afternoons... although sometimes these days we are in survival mode with five children under the age of 5!! :)
Funny thing is, I have been watching them since school started and this is the first time they were all still at the same time for me to take a picture! They rarely watch TV and this shot happened to be during the 30-second span that they were actually paying attention to the movie that was on.
I am hoping I can continue doing this as my pregnancy progresses. Hopefully soon it will cool down a bit and we can spend more time outside. It still feels like the middle of summer here!
I will try to post more soon - I have lots of cute pictures from Lillian's first birthday party!
