Feeling Better

My household is finally feeling better again.  The coughing is sparse now, so things are looking up.  We had a beautiful spring day, almost 70 degrees.  There was a gentle breeze and wonderful sunshine.  I wish we had more of the days!  After school we played outside, Hannah and Isaac were on their scooters.  Eli and I played in the sandbox and took frequent breaks to point at the crop duster flying nearby. 

Aaron is gone the next three evenings as he is part of the interview committee for the new principal.  I took the kids to Pizza Hut for dinner.  They did a fantastic job!  I was so proud of all three of them.  I didn't feel frantic once!  It was a great dinner out.  We got home and played a little longer and then I got all three showered and ready for bed.  We read the Bible, did devotions, said prayers and they were all in bed by 7pm.  Eli was asleep by 7:20 and the other two by 8:00!  I feel quite successful.  I put in 7.5 miles on my bike, did some toning exercises and am now ready to tackle the dishes on my counter. 

Aaron should be home in about 45 minutes and I think we will enjoy an episode of NCIS.  We are halfway through season 5.  Great show!

3.5 weeks left of preschool and then summer is here.  Still can't believe it, but I'm excited for a summer without a move!  I plan to enjoy my summer wholeheartedly!
