It seems like there is always something going on around here! We are in the midst of construction at our house and today a water line was installed in the new room. So somehow we only have HOT water coming out of some of the faucets. The poor kids had scolding hot baths tonight! Well actually, I put in the water and let it sit in the tub before I put the kids in! Then it appeared that our AC upstairs was not working correctly! And Joe has not been in the "best" mood! He is hardly in a bad mood so when he is in one it rocks my world! I don't know what to do with it except to keep pointing out he is in a bad mood! And he LOVES it when I do that!:)
We had a lot of family time today, took the kids swimming twice where Ella's ear was hurting. I'm pretty sure she has an infection! I'll have to get her into the dr. on Monday! Poor girl. And she had a softball game today. She did great made a great stop and got a good hit. It was very hot and we all got some sun today! We came home ate dinner and did baths and I went to TJ MAXX and to Target. Now I am in bed relaxing!
Tomorrow is church, my nephew Tony's birthday party at the skating rink and Ella's softball game! I am so glad school is almost out. Tuesday is Max's kindergarten graduation! I can't believe my little boy is going to be in 1st grade. He just doesn't seem old enough. And Thursday is Maya's preschool graduation and Ella's awards assembly and I can't do both and Joe will be gone!:( But Thursday is the last day and then our summer can begin.
I am excited to start the summer and not have a routine. I am excited to get my baby home hopefully this summer and start our lives as a family of 6. This journey has created so many emotions! From pure joy to pure sadness!!! I was listening to a song I have listened to 100 times in my car and Maya was in there with me listening and she said, "Mommy, this is baby Ade's song! Wise words from a 4 year old. It was right after the last postponed court date! Please pray that Thursday his mother is well enough to show up and that we pass! Here are some of the words to the song:
Feels like I've been here forever(waiting for a court date)
why can't you just intervene?
Do you see the tears keep falling,
And I'm falling apart at the seams,
But you never said the road would be easy
but you said that you would never leave,
You never promised that this life wasn't hard,
but you promised you'd take care of me,
So I'll stop searching for the answers,
I'll stop praying for an escape,
And I'll trust you God with where I am and believe that you will have your way
That is so much easier to sing than to actually do! Have a great night and love someone!
