Learn to adapt!

Without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you.  This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved-and that by God. Phillippians 1:28

Now that I have three kids I completely embrase the term learn to adapt.  Three summers ago we just had Ben and he was six years old.  We could go where we wanted and pretty much do anything on a whim.  Now Ben is 9 and a tremendous big helper to his two little baby sibblings.  Gone are the days of jumping in the car and heading to the cities.  Now we have to pack the car to go to town!  “Do we have the diaper bag?  Do we have the sippy cups?  Do we have the snacks?  Do we have all three kids!!!”  It is getting easier now that Meri is 1.  She can climb in the car by herself.  Zander is on his way to being potty trained so that long awaited day will be a big treat!.  The point of my rambling is that change is necessary and unavoidable.  So role with it.

There is life beyond 5pm!

The kids were trapped in the house Sunday and Monday due to rain, so last night after supper I decided to take them into town and go to open gym at the school.  We stopped by my aunts house first to drop her something she had ordered.  We had a fantastic visit with my cousins and the kids played in her big, beautiful house.  Ben says he wants one just like it.  I said you will need to find someone to clean it!  He is a little on the messy side:)  So off to open gym it was and we had a blast.  I chaseed the babies around the track a few times until Zander spotted someone laying on the floor working out with the medicine ball and he just had to do the same thing.  It was priceless.  Then we went to play basketball.  Meri found a jump rope and a tennis ball and Zander found a little boy just his size to play with and Ben and I shot hoops and played one-on-one.  It was so much fun.  Summer is back!
