I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Big Daddy and I had a delightful little trip to the beach. We really couldn't have asked for a more perfect 31 hours away from our girls. We both wished they were right there on the beach with us...except for when Big Daddy fell asleep and I was able to just be there with my eyes closed and not have to worry if someone was eating seashells or throwing sand. I had a headache that was thisclose to being a migraine and it hung around all day on Saturday, but it did not dampen our day at all. We were able to talk uninterrupted and listen to conservative talk radio and ride with the windows down. It was delightful. I'm pretty sure that we are one step closer to a decision on homeschooling...and where to rent a house at for next summer's beach trip.

We went for VERY long walks on the beach and drove around without worrying about the little people in the back seat being bored. We had dinner late (later than 5:30 is unheard of in our house because Ellie likes to eat early) and stayed out until 9:30 which is pretty late for us!

I stayed busy last night trying to do everything to make Monday morning a little easier. I failed.

Maggie's having a few issues on school days that are causing me to have a few issues and I would really appreciate your prayers for her. It has to do with socks and shoes and I think we all know that there's something else at the root of the problem, but I won't go into that.

Now, I have to (try again) to prepare for teaching my Awana class on Wednesday, read Awana emails that came in over the weekend and send an email to our Church secretary and let her know that I signed up for the wrong Women's Bible Study. Silly me, signed up for a Wednesday night class when I'll be teaching the kids.
