Just all the time. I don't know if it's a function of having Arie and the kids staying with us temporarily (although if it was, it hasn't decreased the activity level now that they are gone) or if it's just part and parcel of having a large family with young children. I feel like Marc and I are always about three steps behind where we should be, and constantly striving to catch up.
Of course, blogging does not help me get stuff done. I know that.
All is calm and delightful in my world today - Harrison and Jordyn and Sam are outside playing happily, racing around the backyard playing some sort of game that doesn't make a lot of sense to me, but they all seem engaged and happy. Julianna is sitting on the living room, having found her bag of alphabet blocks and is very busily picking one up, examining it, putting it down and picking up a different one. She's so cute, all brown curls and oddly enough, greenish eyes. I've got dark brown eyes, and somehow just assumed that all of my kids would get them. Marc's got lighter, hazel-ish eyes, but definitely more brown than green, and Sam's eyes are grey and Julie's are some sort of indiscrimate color that defies categorization. It's not grey, it's not brown, it's not really green either.
