And the Chaos that shall reside in thy home shall be great.
For it shall last all the days of thy life.
Not less than thou livest. For that is not the entirety of thy life.
For the chaos in thy home shall last your entire life.
No more. No less.
And that chaos shalt be great...

The past 5 days have fit right in with this. Katia had a cough last week. Not a bad one. But on Thursday Emma started not feeling well, followed Friday by Delta. Emma ran a fever for half a day, and Delta ran one for 2 days. They are all doing much better now. Delta is a bit congested and miserable, but not as bad as yesterday. Of course now Tony is getting sick, so...Here we go 'round the family. I do think that that it is better to have both Delta and Emma sick at once and get it over and done with, though there is no rest. But now that they are on the mend, I can get some things done.

Fun scrap page

Here is a page I was playing with. I think it shows Julia's personality pretty well. Pin It

The first day of School

So I sent my oldest off to 10th grade. It was exciting and kinda sad. Three more years until she graduates. Yes, I am happy for her. She is taking early morning seminary. It starts at 6:25am. She had to get up at 5:15 and leave an hour later. We are carpooling with another family in our ward. This way we won't have to make the 7 minute drive every day.
I was quite surprised that she wanted to take early morning, but she wanted to be able to take more classes during the day. They only have 5 class periods a day. Kinda few, but what do you do? I guess take early morning seminary. I told her it would be great. When you are choosing to have it in the morning, I think you get more out of it. Plus it's a great way to start the day. I took early morning while we lived in California. It started at 6:00am and was at the church about 10 minutes from the school. For the most part I loved it. It was the only thing. I was sometimes way tired, but I do feel I learned a lot. Pin It

Starting School Again

Twas the night before school,
While eating a cookie,
The family was happy,
Just sitting there lazily.

The back packs were hung
by the door filled stuff
This will make morning easier
and not cause a huff.

The shopping went well.
There are pencils and paper,
Pants and jackets, too.
Plus new shoes and a binder.

Now if we can just get up
And not have to rush.
The babies are sleeping.
Please remember to HUSH!

We'll make pancakes with chips.
Julia likes Semi-sweet.
Elyse likes milk-chocolate
In the pancakes she'll eat.

Now it's out the door.
Ari hasn't far to walk to.
Jayden and Zena are sad
for they've no one to talk to.

I'd like to sit and rest.
I've been up for hours.
But the little ones are calling.
And also the chores.

So, here we are at the beginning of another school year. I do love school especially shopping for school supplies. It is so much fun. I took the girls to buy clothes on Monday and it was fun to see what they liked. Elyse is definitely into pants. She didn't have a hard time at all picking any out. Julia found 2 jackets that she liked. Katia is so easy. Anything with pink on it is a hit. Of course I get to choose all of Delta's and Emma Beth's. Emma is the purple baby, and I found a cute jumper dress for her. Then I found some twinner dresses for them both. I had so much fun!!. Jayden and Ari don't like to shop (hmmm... Are they boys, or what). Ari finally found a back pack that he likes. Now just to get one for Julia and we are set. ShopKo here we come.
Today for the last day of "freedom", Elyse and Julia are going to the mall, and Ari is playing with friends. Katia has fallen asleep in her bed (a rarity). Jayden is watching Star Wars (what else). Emma is watching me type, and Delta is asleep. Tonight we are going out to eat.

So, this past weekend I switched out the cradle for a pack and play. We aren't quite ready for them to be in Katia's room, so this will work for now. Delta started rolling about 2 1/2 weeks ago and last week I was woken up by Emma kicking her in the head. Poor thing. So I decided that it was time. They probably should have been switched out about a month ago, but oh well. Since giving them more room, they are quite a bit more wiggly on the floor. Delta and Emma moved all the way across the floor. The mystery moving is in full swing now. This means that I have to vacuum everyday.
