My Funny Kids

It's been an odd summer.  The first month consisted of various appointments that I always cram into the summer.  Eye Appointments, Dentist appointments, etc.  The next few weeks after that we moved and we're just now feeling a bit settled.  The last few weeks I've been trying to do as many "summer activities" as possible.  We've hit the pool (a lot), go to the park several times a week, play tee-ball, watch movies at night, get ice cream, have had some play dates, and just hang out around the house.  With three small kiddos sometimes even these fun and simple activities can be a bit stressful.  There's quite a bit of bickering and whining going on around our house.  About this time every summer I begin looking at the calendar and counting the days until I go back to work.  This is a bittersweet thought because I really like my job and the beginning of the school year is just such a fun and exciting time to be a teacher (or a school based speech pathologist in my case).  But, as much as I need a break about now I really do miss my kids when I go back to work.  Even amongst all the fighting, bickering, whining and crazy activities I seriously thank the Lord at least three times a week for my babies.  I truly, truly feel so blessed and I often wonder why I deserve to be living the American Dream with my wonderful family.  I love these funny, quirky, little people so much!
