I have struggled with the balance of the last couple of weeks. There has been a shift in responsibility and schedule. On this very blue skied Saturday, I am so happy to be met with a pile of dirty dishes, loads of laundry and a dirty house. I am happy to spend the morning snuggling with my babies and laughing at Jackson's bubble beard and bright white booty in the tub.
I am finding an inner peace knowing that during the week my "I love you" is expressed in simply providing for my family.
We were so fortunate to spend last weekend with much of our immediate family. It was a whirlwind trip and I wish we had more time. My heart is full with all the love and I am going to use it to carry me through the next couple of weeks.
I have had this idea rolling around in my head for awhile to start a blog, a place for the photos and chronicles of our crazy, sweet life. I am usually pretty trapped by my good intentions, procrastination IS my middle name. Just ask anyone who has ever waited patiently on me for edited photos or any other design. It doesn't seem like things are ever quite exactly how I would like them to look or I think I can do better, so I wait and I change it, until the last minute. I try, I really do, but somehow life, just everyday normal life, gets in the way of the list things I would like to accomplish.
Next week a change is coming to our family. One week from today I will start a new job and Jeremy will start his last year of school. I won't lie, I am nervous, for different reasons. I am going to be working full time outside of the house for the first time since Drew was born. Jeremy will be able to pick the kids up every day after lunch and watch them all afternoon. I know what kind of job he has in store for him, it's the greatest job I have ever had, it's not easy, but so rewarding. I already know that I will never be as rewarded outside of my home as I am inside of it. I will however, find the beauty of where we are. We are a family of five accomplishing some pretty awesome goals and having lots of fun adventures along the way.
I am going to try to use this blog as a way to stay connected to my creative side and all those ideas that roll around in my head. I don't have the best writing skills but I am going to put it down anyway, barring any aforementioned procrastination :P
So here it is, in all of it's, not finished, not what I really wanted it to look like, glory... our adventure: Ten Blues
