These past few days have been really great with the kids. Summer vacation is about over and the kids are actually anxious to start back up with school. I have been so busy running around doing last minute doctor and dentist appointments, shopping for school supplies, and registering for school. We also have two birthdays this month. Always busy, I try to make sure we have family devotional time a few times a week to stop, breathe, and take time to fill our spiritual gas tanks.
So often I have to send a kid to their room for being disruptive, or soon after I hear them saying something that is not uplifting, or better yet, an argument will break out that ends up getting a little physical. Big sigh.
Parenting is hard stuff.
And then I get glimpses of special moments that make me stop and run to get my camera to capture the moment forever.
It makes this parenting stuff totally worth it.
I sure love my family.
