I was recently reading a post on another mom's blog where she had documented their crazy day. Monday was one of those days where I thought to myself, "I need to write this day down because one day, I'm going to look back and miss having so much to do!" So here is my attempt to record an average Monday at the Harrison house:
I got home from the gym about 8:00 as Josh and the kids were waking up. I fixed a quick breakfast for everyone, threw clothes on and loaded up the kids, and off to the grocery store we went! Meanwhile, Josh had a full day of going to the dump, cutting the grass at the baseball field, training a kid in the weight room, and building a deck (another post, another time!).
When the shopping was complete, we scooted back home, unloaded groceries, threw dinner in the crockpot, loaded/unloaded the dishwasher, swept the breakfast off the floor, packed picnic lunches, put on swimsuits, and headed to the pool with the cousins!
After the pool, Pierce stayed with Wyatt and Briggs so that he could go to story time at the library, while Edee Kate and I headed home. By this time, it was about 1:00 which means nap time for EK.
Once she was asleep, this sweet little princess came over!
Edee Kate woke up as my brother was picking up Avery. We stole a couple more hugs and kisses from "baby A", then it was time to eat supper and get ready for gymnastics!
I love this action shot of the pigtails!
When gymnastics was over, I took Edee Kate home to drop her off with Josh and Pierce. I gave the kids a quick hug and kiss goodnight, then out the door I went for small group!
Our church is currently in a series called "These Are My People". The message behind it all is that you can't do life alone! I love having a group of fellow women/moms to share life with and to encourage one another!
I left small group about 10:15. I got home, sat on the couch and chatted with Josh for a while, then off to bed we went. This was the last thing I saw before shutting my eyes...
So that is a typical Monday in the Harrison house...nothing crazy or exciting, just lots to do! Of course, not everyday is as jammed packed as this one. But on days where we are so busy, I am constantly reminded of how blessed we are!
