Monday Evening Post










Right Now:

I have 2 kids home with me all week.  Just 2!  The last 2, to be exact.  Emily and Molly are away at camp for the week.  They took the ferry to Juneau for a week long camp filled with hiking, horse back riding, zip lining, and whatever else kids do at summer camp.

 I never went to summer camp...summer camp was for the rich and powerful when I was young.  We were not rich..or powerful.  Either are Pete and I...this is a Christian camp that is run mostly by year long donors.  It was 250$ each for a one week camp...all meals and activities included.  Maybe I am crazy..but that just feels like a good deal to me.  Either that, or we are rich and powerful...

And the other 2 are with Pete on a 2 week adventure.  I would like to say I handled being left here with grace...but that would be NOT THE TRUTH...I kinda did not handle it well.  And it may have taken me a few days to get over it...and an order of yarn...but now I am fine and actually enjoying being a mom to 2 kids and getting lots of things done.  Because I have to admit...being a mom of just 2 kids is WAY easier than a mom to 6...

Boring..but easier...

What else??  I cleaned out my closet to the bare minimum...and it feels so good.  I could really go crazy and share all the very deep thinking that I did over that purge but you all have thought the same when closets are a mess it may be a reflection of other areas of life that are a mess...and when you make it more simple it is easier to is your life.  Not having that many choices is actually giving yourself way more freedom to choose...all the usual deep thinking that comes from getting rid of stuff you never needed in the first place.

Lots more is happening....but I never have my camera with me these days so I feel like it never happened....


  1. Isn't it amazing what an order of yarn does to brighten a mood? So, what did you order?
    I am the mama to five and now only have one left at home,...and have too much time
    on my hands ;)
    Enjoy the week.

  2. Have fun with you little ones...and thanks for reminding me that I need to make lemonade!

    ~Have a lovely day!

  3. Love that you share your thoughts with us! Thanks for making me think along with you. And I agree - less is often so freeing!
