Do you hear anything?? The only thing that I hear is the washing machine washing clothes and the occasion click on the counter from Matthew's fork. Emma is still asleep and the older kids are off to school. Its been a while since it was this quiet in the house. I love my children to death however to hear such quietness is bliss right at this moment. We all dragged out of bed this morning because our clocks were on vacation time yet as everyone got some breakfast the mood got more and more excited. Everyone was excited to get back to see their friends and to tell teachers what happen to them over the holidays. Sarah said she couldn't wait to hug her teachers and tell them she lost her two front teeth. Aaron couldn't wait to get on the bus and listen to his MP3 player like a big kid. Nathan and Daniel were just excited to be out of the house I think. Emma will wake up and mope around the house for half a day missing her siblings whom she fought with constantly. And Matthew doesn't care about much of anything as long as he has his food and his trains. Thats not to say that he doesn't love his siblings. As soon as Emma comes down he will yell Emma with such enthusiasm that you would think he hasn't seen her in ages. Just because the kids are in school doesn't stop our lives by any means here at home. There is still grocery shopping and laundry to be taken care of. But for now its nice to have a little quiet around the house.
I am a very busy mother of 7 wonderful children. So my life is never dull. We are quite the zoo I am realizing but who doesn't love the zoo right? This blog has become my journal so you will see the good along with the ugly but thats our life.
