Title....I can never come up with a title!

{Poor sickie - loves Dads chair!}

{Not a happy camper - not feeling well}

This week has flown! It has been somewhat of a trying week! We came home from camping with sick kiddos! Mom and Dad followed closely behind! We spent the first half of the week recovering and nursing the kiddos. So we just hung out at home, watched movies, broke up lots of fights between kiddos who didn't feel good and didn't sleep good, and tried to keep up with life.
{Cam got a haircut!}

Wednesday I walked with Sheila and tried to catch up on house work. I got a WONDERFUL break in the afternoon to get my hair done. I love getting my hair cut and colored! Always so fun! :) Rene' and Abigail came over to watch the kids for me. Jason gave me the night off since he was leaving the next morning.
Thursday Jason took off for some out of town work they got called out to do. He worked all week, Thursday included then worked until about 11 Friday night. The kids and I went and stayed with Kristen and Sage. We had a bbq with them and Sage's family on Thursday, it was fun to get to know them. Had a horrible night sleep that night - still having sick kids so sleeping at night is not going so hot! :P I got 3 hours that night, 3 hours Friday night. Not enough let me tell ya! Friday we tried to go swimming but this silly momma forgot to check the hours so we got all ready and went and they weren't open. So we played at the park instead. It was still fun but we REALLY wanted to go swimming! :) We just chilled for the rest of the day.
{The pool -sigh-we wish we were there!}
It was a really hard weekend. I tell you, God designed it to be a DADDY AND A MOMMY for a reason!!! It's been rough. I feel like we have hit some discipline and obeying roadblocks that I am having a hard time breaking through. It's even harder when Daddy isn't here to back me up and give me the support I need. The kids don't understand where he is and as for him often! I feel at a lose most days as how to handle them all! Especially cause they are still just toddlers, barely out of the baby stage and there are 3 of them and only one of me. I find I am often discouraged these days, then I feel discouraged about being discouraged! (Like that train of thought??? :) I want to enjoy this time, to soak it all in but the truth is it's just hard. And I think it will be for a while, especially until Jason is able to stay home. I do know though, that God knew these kids were coming, that He planned all alone for me to have all 3 of them, and to have all 3 all at once! So I know it's His perfect will and I know that He will see me through. And that might mean some days I do just "get through" the day - but that's seeing me through! And He is faithful to remind me that are such special little kiddos. They are learning and doing such funny things these days!! All their new funny things to come in the next post! :)
Jason is leaving in the morning to go and fight fires and fix lines that are down because of the fires.'s gonna be a long week. For both of us. Although, if I am hones with myself, he has it much harder! He will be working 16 hour days, sleeping the required 6 hours and then on to the 16 again. And it is not easy work. I have never fought fires, or worked in that kind of heat, or in that proximity to fires, or that kind of hard labor but I am guessing it's HARD, HOT and very TIRING!!! That man never stops - he is so amazing! I want to be like him when I grow up! Thanks Babe!
Now to bed - need to make up for all the hours I missed! :) Got to be ready to start my week off right - spending some time at church worshiping!
