one day at a time

{VBS one of the marketplace shops}



Lately my days have been filled to the brim. I think I am learning to just think about what needs to be done today, because if I think of all the projects needing to be done... well I might just explode! :) My design job, Enduring Arts business and being mom all at the same time is plenty but I somehow got talked into helping coordinate vacation bible school at my church. (Ok, I may also be bad at saying no, especially for church related activities.) But anyway we had a very short amount of time to pull VBS together... organizing, ordering supplies, lots of decorating, promoting. Thankfully God helped everything fall into place and the big event started last Sunday night and runs until Thursday night (tonight... its taking me a few days to just type this post!). The kids, ages 3 through 6th grade, seem to be having a lot of fun. Yes, my little one is attending and she is having a blast. (She also has a mind of her own and likes to challenge the leaders... oh no!) The kids are getting more and more wound up as the days go by so things stay interesting. ;)

With so much going on there really hasn't been family time. But K and I did get up at 5:30 am last Saturday to watch David's bike race. Which he got first place so I'm glad we were there to watch! He has a triathlon coming up this weekend so we will go cheer him on and then hopefully we will have some nice family time when he's done with the event. This mama is in need of some fun relaxing time... it won't last long enough I'm sure!
