Such a busy week!

It's been a while since I've blogged.  Well over a week!  Why?  Live has been alot busier than normal.  Soccer practice is now in affect.  So that officially cram packs our weekly schedule.

It goes something like this:

Monday:  School for Devan and Dominick from 8-3, It takes an hour to pick both of them up!  We usually get home at around 4:15. We do homework and reading for an hour.   Soccer practice is 5:30 - 6:30.  We get home around 7:00.  From 7-8:30 we manage to cram in dinner, baths and daily devotionals.

Tuesday:  Same routine minus soccer practice plus cheer practice from 6-7:30 p.m.  Steven also has his weekly devotional with the teens that usually lasts about two and a half hours...It's busier than it looks!

Wednesday:  No practice.  But we have our feed the lambs program.  We are lacking volunteers for this so I am left helping three  - four weeks out of the month.  We usually get to the church building around 4:30.  The lambs eat around 6.  We have worship at 7.  It is over at 8.  Were usually "stuck" there until at least 8:30 because people have questions and Steven has answers : )  We are never in bed by 8:30 on Wednesday!  We usually get the kiddos settled around 10:30!  This is something that we are working on : /

Thursday runs a little smoother.  Steven is "off".  Big D still has an hour and a half of cheer practice.

Friday is about the same as Thursday but a little better.  The older D's still have soccer practice but we don't stress it because we don't have to worry about an 8:30 bedtime.

Saturday, on the other hand is not looking so well.  If our schedules are anything like last Saturday then where in for it!  We had a 9 a.m. soccer game, an 11 a.m. soccer game, Steven had a project with the youth going on at 4 p.m. and Big D had a game at 5:30.  By the time the game was over at around 7 I was officially exhausted!

Sunday?  I really don't wanna talk about Sunday.  To me, It's the busiest most stressful day of the week.  I know it shouldn't be, but it is.  Sundays are always the longest days.

The good news is that football season will be over in about a month and our schedule will open up a bit and allow us a little bit of breathing room : )

Now, onto the fun part.  I wish the world would've seen my middle d out on the soccer field Saturday morning!  I was so worried that he would struggle and just get trampled to death because all of those kids are seriously a foot or two taller than him.  We moved him up because Big D had to move up and we are a bit selfish and didn't want to juggle four different practices and four different games.  He was literally a rock star and he rocked that field!  He took advantage of being little and squeezed in between and around and under all of those big kiddos.  I seriously think he's gonna go pro : )  He needs to make his kick a little stronger and he's in there!  Big D also did great but I expected her too ; )  They lost both of their games but they learned and I'm sure that they will conquer the field the next time!

Happy week everyone!
