This is me, and why I haven't been blogging much .....
(I consider the 'children' my own two AND the 25 I teach) 

So though our routine has changed considerably and there have been some bumps along the way;  and while I often times feel completely flustered and overwhelmed (and many times embarrassed that my hair hasn't been washed in 4 days because I haven't wanted to take the time to wash it), the girls have been enjoying their full days that are packed with fun.

Creating art at Kindergarten:

Playing on the playground:

Playing with friends during their after-school care:

They've also been spending a lot of quality time with their dad:

And creating habitats for their animals and dinosaurs in our backyard:

We've even had some fun family weekend fun in downtown Minneapolis.
Getting balloons from the balloon clown:

Looking out the overlook window at the Farmer's Market and the Mississippi River:

Checking out the Stone Arch Bridge:

Biking over the Stone Arch Bridge:

It's been BUSY in many not-so-fun ways, but also busy in many SUPER fun ways -- and even though I truly think I slept more when Ella and Zoe were babies and getting up every four hours during the night (I at least had the chance to catch a nap when the girls were napping during the day), this Kindergartener .....

.... and this Kindergartener ......

..... are doing great!!

Well, I hope you find time in there to take a break! Glad to hear things are going well. They sure are cute!

So glad Ella and Zoe are having a great time at school.

Don't worry about your hair, because I'm not working and sometimes don't have the time to wash it,haha!! Hang in there girl, you are amazing and Tom and you are doing a wonderful job with the girls.

PS: Thanks for the birthday wishes for the girls. And yes, I'm so emotional with birthdays too.

I'm glad they're doing so very well at school (and didn't doubt they would at all)!

Hoping things look up more for you!!

I'm so glad to hear that your girls are loving Kindergarten and having so many fun adventures! I can only imagine the whirlwind it must feel like, though...and sadly, I can relate to not having washed my hair in a few days. :/

[I got up super early this morning to wash and dry mine before the girlies woke up...but of course this was a day that they decided to beat the sunrise by a long shot! :)]

I hope with a little more time, some things will fall into a more manageable routine, such that you feel like you can catch your breath at least. Until then, just try to enjoy the ride! :)

And that's an awesome picture of you all biking over the bridge!
