So I realized yesterday I TOTALLY forgot to blog on Monday and share with you all what's been going on! So first, school started yesterday so I have been running myself ragged trying to stay on top of my game! It's been a long summer and now we have anew addition so it will be a balancing game to see just how much I can balance on my plate! This first month will be a little tough trying to get used to our new schedule but I'm up for the challenge!!
Yheblys were pretty excited about the first day of school and their new clothes as well as new supplies! MD was so tired he ended up only doing a half day but it was better than nothing! I'm thinking he will do 3 days a week with school because all 5 May be too Michigan for him right now at least focused schoolwork so we will adjust. I'm glad I made the decision to homeschool and I'm glad the boys enjoy it! Is it tough? YES lol sometimes I wonder if I will get it all done but the 30/30 app helps me stay LASER FOCUSED and on task!! School can be a lot but so can everything and if we have learned one thing in the past year it's that you have to adjust and grow and sometimes it's a little tough but we make it happen right! So balancing with 3 kids, 2 home businesses and just life is VERY possible!! Even after a full day of school and dealing with my little ones as soon as my husband got home he helped check homework and I went to work sharing my business and ended up having a full appointment book at the end of the day!
Always remember that if you SAY you can't do something then you are already defeated! Always claim that you can make anything happen because you CAN! You can make anything happen if you want it bad enough! We are only as busy as we want to be and we can make time for all priorities if we adjust and make the plans!
And of course your little ones appreciate what you do even if they don't always say it! A smile, a laugh, a hug, all forms of gratitude and how our children tell us "Hey mom... You are doing great!" So I will take it!!! My boys are growing up and I love that I am free enough to cherish these moments!
Being a parent is tough at times but it's also very rewarding when we consider all that we do and the impact we make!
PS. Our baby girl Karina Leigh turned 4 months yesterday!
