In the meantime, I thought it might be fun to show a few pictures of how things are "rolling" around here. People often ask "how we do it"- meaning how do we SURVIVE. My answer is nearly always the same...we ARE NOT doing it. We simply can't. Can't do it alone, at least. I mentioned before, but we have literally been sustained in miraculous ways through strength and endurance of supernatural proportions and by the angels sent to walk beside us.
At home, though, we are learning a few survival tactics, and I thought it might be fun to show you a few of the small ones. No one else may be interested in this, but these little things speak volumes to me about our lives right now and...
I want to remember.
I want to remember what it looks like to have six car seats in the minivan.
(not pictured: the solid layer of books and toys on the floor, the mass chaos of getting everyone in and out, and the "luggage" that fills the trunk each time we go ANYWHERE)
speaking of "luggage"...
I want to remember the color coded cubbies where school backpacks, lunchboxes, folders and nap mats are organized each evening
I want to remember what it looks like to walk by myself with six little chicks to the park nearly every day.
As crazy as it all is...I do want to remember each of these things.
Such tiny things that have completely transformed our everyday living in just two short months.
