Just the other day...

Just the other day, these girls were as little as my Preesley. And now look a them. Each one unique, and beautiful. And each trying to figure out who they are and what they want to be. And trying to be a good friend, student, daughter, athlete, reader, and roller-skater. Since my girls have been at school all day I have had time to organize and clear my head. So when they come home, my mind is clear and I feel like I have been able to "see" them better. I enjoy watching them, and teaching them and listening to their sweet voices, and ideas and dreams. And to be honest I don't even feel like, "oh, why didn't I do that with them during the summer" or "oh, why didn't spend more time with them while they were home all day." Because I know that really it wasn't possible (okay possible, but not as easy as it is now for me) Okay, I guess what I am saying is that I love to have my kids in school, because it is exciting for them to learn, and grow and experience new things. It makes our lives interesting, and crazy, and mellow, all at the same time. It gives me chance to keep 4 rooms of the house clean at the same time for at least 6 hours, which makes me happy. It gives me chance to spend extra time with Preesley, who sometimes gets lost in the shuffle. It gives me time to do nothing if I don't want too, and guess what, Buck doesn't care if I do fact somedays he encourages it. Hey, and did I mention that Preesley takes naps, and makes for some very productive hours in my day!! 3 cheers for school, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray!! ***Preesley is in love with this cat. She pulls, squeezes, hugs, pinches, drops and drags this kitty around everyday. And this cat could get away if it wanted to, but instead it just keeps coming back for more. If this cat could be cloned every house in American should have one for a first pet!!****
