Today I had lunch duty at Anna's homeschool-school-thingy.
Which means that for the past WEEK, she and the boys and Kaitlyn have been SO EXCITED.
I love that my independent five year old daughter WANTS me at her school helping. Not only that, she wants her siblings there too. When we showed up, I instructed Kaitlyn, Yosef and Biniam to sit and eat their own lunch in an out of the way spot. Anna came rushing over, saying "No! Come sit by ME! I want them to sit with me!" Soooo sweet. Then when they were done eating and having recess on the playground, Anna was looking out for Kaitlyn. Priceless.
I'll definitely try to remember all of this the next time I feel overwhelmed by the tattling and assorted spats--which could very well be tomorrow. :)
Now it's time to put some pjs on and settle on the couch with a book. (Sadly I'm behind on my "Bible in 90 Days" goal, but I can catch up...right?!) I'm exhausted, Mary's sleeping, Kevin's tucking the big kids into bed (after leading them in a rousing rendition of "Father I Adore You"), and the kitchen is clean. Another Monday has come and gone!
