A recurring theme.
Maybe it is the time of year....maybe it is the age of my girls....maybe it is me....who knows. All I know is that I find myself photographing the shadows on a fairly regular basis these days. I feel like I can't sit still, because most of the time I can't.
It feels like there is always so much swirling through my brain that if I stop for a minute I may forget something that I really shouldn't forget. Like, Abbey's got work or soccer tonite. Raine's babysitting or doing homework (yeah right) at Anna's. Who is home for dinner. I need to water the wilting garden. If we don't get rain soon I will need to hook up the hose and use processed water.
Up until this point I think I must have had it easy. I was on top of it all....precariously perched obviously. We have never been a family that has every moment occupied with different activities. I have tried to maintain time for quiet play while still meeting everyone's request for one extra activity. So, can someone please let me know how to maintain a simple life when there are 5 people covering a wide age range who all need such seemingly different things. Please don't tell me to read a book and buy a "mama's organizer" calendar.
