Monday, March 3, 2008


So all the excitement started Friday night after the kids hip hop class, when they took part in a church winter Bible camp. We spent from 6-8 pm singing songs, playing games, crafts, snacks and Bible stories ( I stayed to help out with Blake) then back on Saturday from 2-4pm doing the same things and again back Sunday morning from 10-12pm. Points were kept track of for prizes on Sunday but I talked it over with the kids that since all the other kids didn't have much that it would be nice for them to be able to win the big prizes (HUGE teddy bears and snowboard) they were fine with that and agreed that it was a good idea. So the kids didn't to anything extra to earn points then came award time.....Drum roll GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR....

First name Trinity Smith! OMG if you could have seen the look on my face, that wasn't suppose to happen??????and where in the heck am I going to put that bear?????lol Apparently she was so well behaved and polite as were my other 3 children that they got points for that as well, oops I guess I forgot to tell her to act up like the rest. Now you have to understand that this church is all older people and an attendance Sunday morning of about 12 (no seriously) they reach out to children who done have a lot and there parents aren't really there for them so for them to see our children there they were so excited to see such well rounded children join them. You never know maybe we will become a part of this church and help make a difference!

The kids had a great time and are looking forward to the summer vacation Bible school.
So yes it was busy but it didn't stop there but I was so EXHAUSTED that I was in bed sleeping by 9:00pm.
Oh what I will do for my children....Today I drove my hubby to work before the kids went to school, came back picked them up then dropped them off at school. That was hectic enough...Then I rushed home, took a shower (Blake actually let me shower alone lol) then rushed back out the door to pick up two of the kids at school, took Trinity to work with her father so that he could walk across the street to take her to her eye appointment while I went back to the skating rink to meet the school. The kids skated for an hour as a part of their winter carnival week then went back to school. (the weather here was FREEZING) left there in time to go pick hubby and my daughter up at the eye doctor to go get her new glasses done. Wow, I need to sit for a minute, McDonald's it was I didn't care as long as I was sitting. Trinity and Blake played in the play park for awhile before we rushed back to the van to take Matt back to work.

Oh I am not heading home yet....there is still more. I dropped hubby off just in time to go back to the school to pick up my little guy in kindergarten then waited for the second bell to drive some of the boys basketball team to their game at another school, which I had no idea how to get there...Thank God that by this time poor little Blake was so tired that he couldn't act up and he sat on my knee the whole time and played his v-smile games. Good news...Jays basketball team won the game 76 to 47, Way to go Jaguars!!!!!!!!!!!

Left there and drove home the two extra boys I had, dropped Jay and Trinity off home then picked Matt up at work. Finally home! Big sigh of relief! Not.....unpack book bags, start homework and supper, get the kids showered and ready for bed, watched a show with the boys then tucked the kids in bed. Yes the day finally came to an end and here I am watching a movie (Mr and Mrs. Smith) with Jay and playing around on my blog. I think I will have to let Jay watch the rest of the movie in his room and I will head off to bed :0) Sounds great!
This is just an idea of how the rest of this week is going to go! Thank God Spring break is next week. (oh wait that won't be any less busy, we are going away...sigh)
