Getting only half of a room cleaned last week and only a couple of tests corrected, doesn´t count for a frenzy. Does it? I mean, I have a right to throw a Mama Fit! ( My friend NINA and missionary neighbor in Portugal started these fits.)
Every time I get started working on something, I get interupted by something else. The boys needing something, needing to get dinner, English classes, exercise, well, just about my whole daily schedule gets in the way of this summer cleaning frenzy.
Today, I started with good intentions of finishing the grades before I posted this, but the baby cried abit more today inorder to sleep, the boys had Spanish class, I had to feed the baby, and I had to clean the kitchen. Well, you get the point.
I didn´t throw a literal fit. Just here on my blog. It makes me feel a little better to vent. I didn´t take it out on my family, I promise.
Today, I am doing the Making my Home Sing meme by going with the flow. Praying to be able to get to some more cleaning and grading done by this evening.

I will keep plugging away at it. While taking care of my family and this new sweet addition. Yes, you read right.. A BABY!
She and her mommy come to our church services. Her mommy had to start work, and I offered to take care of Ester so she didn´t have to go to child care. She is a good happy baby, and a joy to have around.
The boys love her!
How are you getting ready for the summer? Will you all be visiting family or going on long trips? How will you get ready for school next year?
