OFF TRACK LAMENT!!!

Well the kids are off track. Is that enough information to relay the chaos that currently reigns supreme in our home? With all five children at home all day, the awful din that reverberates through our entire neighborhood is sure to send tremors throughout a one block radius. However, on the other hand, the sounds are mostly happy ones so it is all worth it. I do get a little bit worn down by the constant state of vague mess that seems to hover throughout the house now, I just don't seem to be able to stay on top of it all...by the time one is cleaned I have been preoccupied long enough to leave time for another one to magically appear.

It's times like these that I am really grateful for my sweet husband. He is sure to laugh when I am being ridiculous, or step in when I am about to lose it, or just wrestle with the kids when they need a break from me. We wouldn't stay sane without Josh. He is currently a high school psychology teacher. It is his first year at Murray High School, however, he is already one of the more popular teachers. In fact, they had to add another psychology 1 class 2nd semester because the two that were scheduled filled up completely. His sports psych class, which had 16 students this semester, is also much more full next semester. The kids really enjoy him and we couldn't be more proud of our dad. He keeps us all happy. We love him!!!
I am also grateful for fabulous books that let me escape for a few moments into someone elses world. I am currently re-reading the Twilight books. Boy, I love those, they are so much fun. To think I ignored them because I don't usually care for vampire books.
Off track or on, it is such a blessing to be able to spend all day every day with my little ones, my favorite people in the world. I can't lie, I am grateful for nap time and I might not be sane without it (wait, am I sane now...ok, that's debatable). I am sure grateful for your family, even with the destruction and yelling and fighting and mess at home with all five kids, I wouldn't trade it for the world. What could be better than family.

Yea, I used to have lots of students that wanted into my classes but then I ran out of money to buy them candy and stuff. And I found it didn't make me any more popular so I just get by on my good looks and sparkling personality now. Josh will outgrow all the 'priestcraft' stuff soon enough. :-) Sure glad he is enjoying his job and the attendant benefits.
