Ahem...I am back

Well, that was a longer then originally unintended little break.  You miss one day, you miss 10 days, ha! 

Sing it to the tune of Madame Blueberry from Veggie Tales when you read this next line..."I am busy, busy, dreadfully busy!" 

Truthfully, we are busy, like really busy.  It's just that time in ministry and family season that everything is kicking off at once and little girls named Lucy decided 4 weeks ago sleep was optional.  So we are in full force busy mode walking around like zombies!  In the last 2 weeks we have had soccer games, make up soccer games, dance class starting, Ridge groups at church starting, the book fair is next week {yes, I am doing that again!}, home improvement projects, and much more.

But it actually has been good.  I can see the light at the end of tunnel, which our light right now is Thanksgiving, and then once that hits it's full force Christmas mode, but all that stuff is fun for me!

So even in the busiest of times we have still found time to have fun as a family, which has been great.  Eric now is taking Saturday's off, he used to take Friday's off, but with Molly in school all week and her soccer games are on Saturday mornings, and Eric is coaching her team, Saturday won, and he is home the entire day.  It's been a bit of a transition.  We were used to him being gone and Saturdays were my goof off days with the girls.  But now that daddy is home it's an actual legit family day.  This is something we have not had in a long time.  Sure it costs a little more because now Lucy goes to a babysitters on Friday, but we have the absolute, hands down best care taker in the world for her, and she loves going there.  But in the end it's all worth it!  We went from having 3pm-7:30pm on Fridays as our family time, to now an entire day.   

So that's where we are at...I have so many things to catch y'all up on, too.  And don't worry, I am not going anywhere, at least not intentionally!
