Crazy Wednsdays

Wednsdays are crazy. Full from the moment I get up until we settle in for the evening. This Wed was no exception. Garrett's school is having Spirit Week and today is Twin Day. The entire 6th grade class dressed like their Science teacher in honor of his birthday. So at 7 am we sprayed his hair BLACK and gave him a mustache, Scott got some used glasses and he was off. Sadly, I couldn't get a picture as he was running out the door. I always drive carpool on Wed to Jackson's preschool. We leave by 8:30 to get to school by 9:00. 4 rambuncious boys never fail to make the drive, um, interesting. I've included their picture today. Then, Alayna has a ballet class at the Y from 10:30 to 11:15. I got some pictures of her and Alyssa. We leave immediatly after ballet to make the return trip home from preschool. We're usually home around 12:00. I have to make a quick lunch and get Jackson back to the neighboring town for his 1:00-2:00 speech class. Then it's home again, pick up around the house, welcome home my kids and all the after school babysitting kids - make their snack - then make dinner. All homework is done at this time as well. Carter has basketball practice from 6:00-7:00, and Garrett has b-ball practice from 7:00-8:00pm. Luckily, Scott takes them to that unless he has to work of course. Today he took them. Whew ……. now I'm being summoned by my 5 & 3 yr old to play a game …….. so, that's my day today.

Ooops, spelled Goddaughter wrong ….. and can't fix it short of redoing it all ……… maybe someday I will, but not today. :)

They seem to spend a lot of time laying on the floor in ballet. It has nothing to do with the fact that they're all 3 and 4 yr olds, I'm sure.

My attempt at messing with a photo in Adobe.

Jackson, Evan and Brian in the back. Brady and Alayna up front.

Great job capturing the everyday craziness of our lives. This is truly the stuff that we will forget, but which makes up our lives. Great job stopping time and remembering.... Now I must try to do the same. Thanks for the inspiration.

Can't say enough about the pic of the ballet shoes... you know how much of a sucker I am for that stuff. And the shot of Alayna on the floor - GREAT.
