Love/hate relationship

I have a love/hate relationship with this time of the year. Soccer has started! This year we have 3 kids in soccer. 3! That means: This week we have 5 practices! We also had 3 SEP's (parent/teacher conference) one violin lesson, one piano lesson, one orthodontist appointment, 5 days of early release, one hike (with my great gals I visit teach) 3 crock pot meals (so we don't have 3 nights of fast food or pizza, cause the practices are at 5:30 or 6, which is dinner time), and one play practice. We are also trying to squeeze in one birthday party. Maybe on Saturday? Neil has also been very busy at work, which we are not use to anymore. He has had to attend all of the city councils for the entire county! That is a lot of city council meetings. I think after the two tonight he will have only 3 left. So I love going to the games, which start next Saturday, and I love watching the kids have fun, learn, exercise, and have success. I love eating great crock pot meals, which for the next two months we will do a lot of!I hate that we have to cram in things like scriptures, homework, dinner, playing with friends. I hate that we don't get home most nights until 8. I am glad it only lasts until the end of October, but then we move on to basketball. I guess I thrive when I am crazy busy, but like to take breaks from it too!

I love that last comment. I have been so busy. I haven't been able to check in on you for a while. Happy birthday to Addison. Such a cute picture.
