Looking Ahead

Do you ever look at the calendar and get stressed just knowing what is coming?  That’s me right now.  This week isn’t looking too bad but boy between 8/1 and 8/10 it’s going to be busy.  We have reunions and a church thing and VBS and it’s just going to be crazy for me.  I’m not use to so much like that.  We keep things very simple because let’s face it with 5 kids, it would be way to easy to get pulled in a 1,000 different directions so we just keep it to places everyone can be involved in on the same days/times.  I can see how families get so stressed, having a child going this way one night and the other child going that way another night.  I really find myself quite spoiled in the fact that we aren’t that stetched.  Now some may say that we aren’t offering and exposing things to our kids like we should but really shouldn’t they be exposed to good family time and the love of their family?  As the old song use to go, “Slow down, you move to fast.  We got to make the moment last”  Now I’m pretty sure that was refering to something else but it also applies in this context.
