So, my kids have been being slobs lately, and I’ve had enough. After going downstairs for the umpteenth time after asking them if they’ve done blah, blah, blah, and them saying yes, only to discover it wasn’t actually done, I got out the floor mop. I scooped everything out from under dressers and beds, from behind couches, things shoved in closets, and items strategically placed on dressers & windowsills…and formed a pile…in each room. You put your laundry in the hamper? You cleaned under your bed? You hung up and put away the clothes I lovingly folded? Um…yeah, sure ya did.

So instead of playing outside on this gorgeous day, they are cleaning…and fighting. And I am ignoring them…and eating the rest of the Easter candy. Bam!
This year is flying by. Not only this year, but just life in general. My kids are growing up so fast. Chubbs turns 9 this month, Froggy is finishing up his first year of home school (4 year old Kindergarten), Princess2T has all kinds of preteen drama going on, and Pickle…well, Pickle is kinda just along for the ride right now. I’ve been doing all sorts of crafts…and posting them in my Etsy store, Lifeat30ish Crafts. And, I sold one to someone I don’t know! How exciting is that!?
Anyway, back to the point…it seems like life is flying by, but I don’t really mind. My 7 year wedding anniversary is coming up in a few weeks, and I’ve never been happier or more in love with my husband. My kids are growing up, but I feel like we are raising them right, and giving them the best opportunities for their future that we can. I don’t see things slowing down for us any time soon…we have lots of volunteer opportunities on our schedule, soccer games, end of the school year stuff, travel plans, and just random things planned with family and friends aside from all the regular life stuff. Overall, we are crazy busy, but happy. We, of course, have our meltdown moments…can’t get away from that with 3 girls, but I feel like things are on track. We have been greatly blessed this year so far, and I know God has big things in store for us. So I guess, we better just hang on and enjoy the ride.
