What a long day! Spent time cleaning the bathrooms (yuck with 4 boys) and working my hospice triage job from home. Brandon made me feel good when he said "You must be supermom-taking phone calls, making lunch, cleaning and controlling the littlest princess". Little does he know this is just multitasking, a gift mothers have:-) Glad to have Rich home from work today and he took all the kids swimming. Soon it will be too cold to swim so gotta get all the time in the pool we can. Have to put a shout out to Michelle Devine's blogspot "1 day at a time". Ordered a really cool tshirt and can't wait to see it. Michelle, you rock!! Seriously, for all you crafters take a look at her blog and store. Awesome. Now time for bed as we have the 8 am session for church which means waking up early and getting all 5 kids ready without a fight-haha!

I let Brandon have his own facebook account. What was I thinking? Anyway, it will be ok as I have access to it and hopefully he has fun with it. All this technology we did not have years ago. I am excited as we met with Camryn's preschool teacher. She is going 2 days a week for 2 hours. It will be a great time for mom to nap. I am a little sad as she is my last child and I cannot believe she is old enough for preschool! All the boys (except Brandon) attended this preschool. Sis Billings runs it out of her house and the class size is only 10 kids. I have to tell a funny story about my cousin Isakk Fowkes. He is the youngest cousin at 2. They came to visit us all the way from Virginia. He and his older sister, Scout (5), came to Colton's kindergarten preview. All the kids were nervous and did not want to ask questions except Isaak! He kept cracking my mother and I up by asking "do we get a nap, do we get to eat, and can I go home"? What a cutie!! I am still trying to figure out how to get music on this blogspot so any suggestions would be great!

School started 2 weeks ago for 4 of our children. I am having fun entertaining Camryn as she is the only one home! I am used to having Colton home and they would play or torture each other! We had fun with my baby brother and his family coming for a visit. The kids had fun and basically drove Grandpa crazy-always a good thing:) Camryn starts preschool next week so I will have 2 days of the week with a 2 hour break. I can feel the nap coming on already!
