9/23/08 Overwhelmed!

It has been a long time since our last post. We have been so overwhelmed with various activities. Mondays-Brett has play rehearsal while Logan and Katherine have soccer practices.
Tuesdays-Jim has either had to usher at Miller Park or had a Board of Christian Day School meeting at M.O., Brett, Katherine, and I go to Logan's soccer games. Katherine gets to be the ball-girl for the home games.
Wednesdays-see Mondays
Thursdays-I pick Katherine up after school. Jim gets Logan from soccer practice. Pastor Wangerin gets Brett after play rehearsal. We all sit down for a family meal together.
Fridays-Logan has soccer practice.
Although, this week Jim will be working at the ballpark.
Katherine would tell you that she is overwhelmed with homework. She struggles with her school work and needs extra one-on-one from Mom and Dad. Logan is overwhelmed with all his high school responsibilities....studying and reviewing for a Geometry test today, a Biology test tomorrow, new Latin words, and a World History paper. Brett is overwhelmed with nightly homework (something new for him this year). He is still done and busy reading a book before anyone else, though! Brett is on the new Chapel Worship Team at Mount Olive. He will be participating in a skit for tomorrow's Chapel service.
I am overwhelmed with the day-to-day activities of being a Mom who works part-time. I don't know how people work full-time or even part-time and still have time to have a well-cared-for house. I was able to wash the kitchen floor and have dinner on the table for Jim and the boys yesterday (a rare domesticated moment for me).
I was at soccer practice with Katherine. Work in the kitchen at MLHS is quite overwhelming at times, but I am adjusting to it. I thank God that we are able to send Logan to a Christian school, because of my part-time work. I am overwhelmed with joy for all the Lord's blessings that He sees fit to bestow on our family. We are healthy and adjusting to this new phase in our life; that being busy parents with active children.
