Busy-ness as usual

Well, we are back into the swing of things again. We are doing full-day school again (with much complaining). The Pillowfight Fairy has finally made it to her half-way point in her school year. Things are going well. We are also contacting health professionals about having her evaluated for Aspergers Syndrome. If nothing else it might result in helping her in developing some tools to help smooth her road of life a little.

As if we weren't busy enough, we have started hosting a mid-week church group in our home. It seemed easier to host a group than to pack up the family to travel to someone else's house. It also motivates me to keep the house moderately clean on a regular basis.

Added to that, Tim has just auditioned and been cast in a role for a local community play that will keep him busy until the middle of April.

Then Tim is also planning a series of classes that he plans to teach at church in the spring quarter.

We have been diligent in our Wii exercise. I have been feeling a difference already. Though it will still take me a while to take off those extra "baby" pounds.

And the Little Chunk is getting bigger every day. I am convinced that he is gearing up for yet another growth spurt. I think he may well be moving into his 6-9 month outfits in the next week or two. He isn't sleeping through the night yet, but he has been giving us 6 hours straight from time to time.

How are we able to do all of this on so little sleep? I have no idea. Maybe it's because our older kids can do more on their own now. Maybe it's because we have cut out so many extras and luxuries from our lives that we have a modicum of time. Maybe it's because you don't waste time when you're too busy living your life to think about it. Somehow it is working... for now.
