A few days of quiet

After what felt like a really long summer the kids are back into their school routine. I guess I didn't realize how much it took out of me to keep up with the five kids all summer until they headed back and I just had Trevor and Abigail at home. I am still amazed at how much I can get done with just two underfoot instead of five! Trevor and Abigail miss the older kids while they are at school but at the same time I think they also enjoy a little less chaos.

We are anxiously waiting for the arrival of our little one but so far she doesn't seem to be so excited to come just yet. After delivering several of my babies so early it is a bit strange to have less than 2 weeks left and feel like nothing is happening. Guess she will come when she is ready.

Until then we are taking advantage of our quiet days knowing that soon our "normal" routine will be anything but normal for awhile.

I'm glad you posted. I keep wondering about you and your little one. I lost your phone number so I couldn't call you but will be keeping you in mind and hoping you don't have to wait too much longer.
I too am enjoying the peace of school. :)

I'm glad you posted too. I was about to email asking if the baby arrived and that was why there hadn't been any activity here for a few days.

ENJOY these last few days as home with only 2. Is Trevor in preschool then?

Can't wait to hear the good news.
