Ok, it is officially super-hard for me to get any time online at this "season" in my life.
I wake up at 6:30am and get dressed for the day. My alarm sounds at 7am...and by "alarm" I mean Sedric yelling "Mom! Mom!" I immediately get him ready for the day, and Gemma is awake as well so I need to remind her of her Morning Routine too. Then downstairs for breakfast, a few chores, lots of kid-monitoring, and anything else I can do before Mrs. N comes at 8am.
At that point it is school time, or if not school 100% then anything I NEED to get done like switching laundry, starting the bread machine, or cleaning something. But, mostly school.
When Mrs. N leaves at 1pm, I go straight to chore assignments and family meeting, managing the chores, read to the little ones, and put Sedric to bed. By this time it is 2pm and I have about 2 hours to finish school and do more vital housework before switching to either dinner prep or dance lesson prep. Then dinner...dishes..kids to bed..and before I know it, it's 7:30 or 8pm. Then I have to prep for the next day (mostly set out breakfast...every meal is for 8 people...). BAM it's 8:30pm, and I COULD work on the blog, but it's my only time for a shower and then Marcus would like to spend time with me before we both go to bed around 9:30pm. Forget about reading or treadmill time--not happening.
Thus, I haven't been online much lately. :o(
But that's OK! We all have these busy seasons in our life, right? I'll just do what I can. Here's the rest of our first full day in Durango, way back in September:
|The gorgeous wedding site|
|Gemma walking across the bridge with the ring-bearer|
|Bride and Groom delegating to their minions|
|One excited flower girl!|
|my little brother holding his youngest niece|
|After the rehearsal, we all had fun on the property. The little|
ponds were a big hit! It was a beautiful day.
|James with fellow artist Uncle Justin|
|Sun going down (we had pizza dinner under the tent)|
|Gemma with cousin Grey|
|The wedding was right around the time of that rare |
super-blue-harvest moon (remember that?).
After dinner we drove into Downtown Durango for some ice cream. We got to see the Durango-Silverton Narrow Gauge coming back from Silverton!
|A sweet ending to a sweet day :o)|
