Well, here I sit and the clock reads 4:47am! Sophie woke up at 3:40am this morning. She normally sleeps through the night, but every once in a while we have an early morning wake up call. So I got Sophie up, changed, fed, burped, and almost back to sleep, when I hear Riley coming out of his room! It's only 4:35am and two of my kids are up---I don't think so!!!!! What in the world!!!!!! Thankfully, as I sit here typing this--Sophie is back asleep in her crib and Riley is in my bed snuggling with his daddy. I am not going to even bother trying to fall back asleep. My alarm will sound at 5:30am and my day will officially begin-- going back to sleep for 45 minutes just doesn't seem worth it at this point!
I have a full day ahead of me! Two of my sweet friends from church are coming over with their kiddo's. We will be putting together care packages to send to the students in our church's college ministry. After that, I am taking all three of my kids to the doctor. No one is sick (thankfully), but all have reasons to be seen. Corban has been complaining about a sore ankle, on and off again, for a few weeks now. Riley has his three year old check-up, and Sophie is due for a shot! Later this evening, we are getting together with several of our neighbors for dinner!
Please pray that I will have the energy and patience that I need to get through this day! With prayer...and lots of coffee, I should manage just fine ;)!!!!
