Time to blog? and Longing for Summer

Somehow I have not found the time to blog. I really want to stay on top of this project however I am lacking in the area of time. Of course I don't have any readers at the moment. Yet, poor excuse because I am not doing this for readers. I am blogging to record what happens in our crazy life. There is so much entertainment in my little world.
Looking forward to the end of school. I still have a longing to home school, maybe in time. I believe I am ready for the summer more than the kids. Of course, the lack of structure does wear on me by the end of summer and I began to look forward to more of a routine. I guess I can't have it both ways.
I am thinking of organizing our summer though...With me not working this summer and the baby being a little older I am hoping to have many field trips and free outings with all of my little shadows. The grocery is not considered an outing. Alyssa had discovered she likes the playground so the park at least once a week with a picnic is in the plans. The boys would love to swim but Alyssa is still afraid of the water and Andrew doesn't need to be in the sun. Maybe a water park is in our future. I would also like to vacation this year...we will see. The boys haven't been to the beach but not sure I want to tackle that one with a 7mth old and three yr old. I do like a challenge but that is stretching things a bit.
Until next time and maybe it wont be weeks in between post.

Spring Break Bowling Trip

Cole and Brooke on our spring break bowilng trip.
I must have been crazy took my four plus one.

I bowl better with a helper...must keep me balanced.
Of course, my helper gave out.
Alyssa had a great time.
We had a great time bowling...will have to return soon.

I never know what it will be like when I take all of my shadows out together. They all have such different personalities and there is a big gap in the ages. A pre-teen, a "middle child", a two year old, and new born. Life is interesting to say the least. While we were bowling a group of older gentlemen were bowling two lanes over. One of them came over and ask me if they were all mine. So I told him all but one, and I was bracing of what would come never know. Everyone seems to have an opinion. He complimented the kids on how well behaved they were and told me I was doing a good job. I was so proud of all my little people and guest.
