October, already?

September flew by!  A full week of people under the weather plus really getting into our school groove made the month disappear quickly.  Having two children in school has made for some busy days – making multiple trips to school every day plus staying on top of everything.  By May I should have this figured out.  

This weekend was a great mix of productivity and play.  On Saturday we changed around the kids’ beds (more on that later) which took most of the day.  Today, though, after church, lunch, and rest time, we made time to play.  We went for a long walk together, we filled the driveway with chalk drawings, the boys played catch, and Anna rode bikes with a neighbor friend.  The house was a mess, but we left it and played anyway.  Sometimes playing, relaxing, and making memories is just more important than doing dishes and picking up.
