I thought only high school seniors got spring fever. I, stay-at-home-mom, of only one school aged child, have spring fever.
The end of the day was my favorite. The girls and I read about 20 books, all curled up on the couch. Then after Miss H went to sleep (at the crazily early time of 6:30) Miss E and I played a board game in her tent. I just took the fun tent down before it lost its novelty,
I'm not sure why but having both of my girls home, during the week, just made me entirely grateful to be a mother. I am amazed that I get to be their mom. I love when we are together. I think I love summer so much because I get to spend so much time together as a family. I love having my children with me. I love to hear their squeals and their giggles. I love the sentence... "mom can we..." usually some crazy idea comes out of their minds. I love to watch them discover the world and love every moment. I am grateful that I get to make their food, and keep our home. That I get to create this environment for them to grow up. I am dazed by the responsibility that I have to raise them to be responsible adults who love and serve Jesus Christ, but am so eternally grateful for the challenge. Sometimes I am overwhelmed by this challenge. But ALWAYS, I am eternally grateful that I am a MOTHER.
