Birthday trumps Busyness!!

This year we are adapting to life with four active children. It seems like we are always behind and often one of us is acting like a behind (but we won't discuss our behind-like attitudes today). In the past we have done a great job with our children's birthdays..making them special and fun. This year we have not done such a great job because we are always behind. But, the fact of the matter is no matter how busy we are the birthdays still come.

Tomorrow is Clara's birthday...she turns nine. And here I sit frantically trying to come up with a plan. This will probably be our busiest weekend of the year. Tomorrow we have a T-ball game, two soccer games, and a service project. Sunday we have at least one, maybe two soccer games, Life Group and our girls are attending a musical.

On the positive side...I'm learning to work with what I have...Lemons to Lemonade kind of thing. Plus, today is unscheduled, so I can devote time to coming up with a good plan. What used to take me a month to do can now be done in twenty-four hours.

Clara's is precious and we will enjoy celebrating her life tomorrow!! She loves to play soccer!! She gets to play with her friends twice on her birthday. What more could she want? If she were here right now she would say...PRESENTS!!
