countdown

We have less than four weeks left of school.  I think I've started counting before the kids.  I'm tired.  Getting up at 5:30 every morning so we can read the Book of Mormon and have family prayer before Bailee leaves for seminary has just about killed me these last few weeks.  This morning I realized we have 13 more years of early morning seminary before we are finished!!!  Ugh...

Summer is turning out to be extremely busy as well.  But we won't need to be up so early to be everywhere we need to be.  :)  The first week after school Mason has Cub Scout Twilight Camp for the week.  The following week, Bailee will be in summer school, Karlee at CFK, Mason still playing baseball and Brian and I will be in Hong Kong.  WOW!!  I'm soo glad Brian's parents will be here to run our kids around.  Also during the two weeks we will be gone, Bailee and Karlee have girls camp one weekend.  Then Bailee will have Youth Conference the next.  I think my MIL be worn out when we get back. 

In July we have a family reunion that I'm not sure were going to be able to attend.  With Brian being gone for over two weeks at the end of June and a possible conference being scheduled in July, he's limited with getting away.  He also has a couple of new contracts that he'll be focused on in July before school starts up.  Then to add McKinzie's situation, and a challenge to take a vacation because of visitation schedule she won't be able to go.  The reunion is planned at the same time as McKinzie's birthday.  I just can't be gone on her birthday.  I can't leave her here without someone to celebrate her birthday with.

I guess I need to stop thinking that a break is in the future.  Life is always busy and always will be.  Most of the time I don't mind.  Did I mention that I'm tired?

Life sure is busier than I expected it would be. Sounds like lots of fun stuff though! Sorry about Kinz' visitation issues, that stinks.
