So the voicemail was someone asking to see our house!!! I called back right away and set the time for as late as they could which was 3. It was already almost 11. And I knew the house was a WRECK!! We had spent all weekend working on our rental and we have early church so flew out of there this morning.
So James finagled someone to teach his class. I get my mom set up to come get our kids. We grab the kids from their classes and race home.
We start frantically cleaning and prepping. James fed the kids lunch and my mom came and picked them up so they could go to her ward. Yep my kids got about 4.5 hours of church today--SUCH TROOPERS!!
We barely finish and the lookers showed up right at 3.
I feel like collapsing in a heap tonight. What a crazy overwhelming day!!
But they said they were interested!!

Three kids- enough said! hahaha! Having three small kids at home is a challenge. My house is always a little or well more than likely a lot messy. There is always laundry to do. Dishes to wash. Floor to sweep. But also hands to hold. Kisses to give. Snuggles to enjoy. And fun conversations with sweet little voices and smiles.
Sariah- is almost done with preschool. I think she and I will both miss it! It has been a hard schedule to adjust to, because it is through the high school child development lab and different times and days each week. But she has loved it and learned sooooooo much!
Ben- is finally sleeping better. He still gets up occasionally during the night but since his surgery it hasn't been an every night occurance. He is also starting to find his little voice and speak up more instead of letting sissy do all the talking. He is still completely addicted to the iPad and Thomas the train.
Eli- should have his own little post but this will do for now. He is almost 5 months and weighs 20.5 lbs. CHUNKY!! He started cereal this week and really eats it so well. I think he might be growing again because he wants to nurse constantly. Growing? I know! Crazy. His spitting up seems to be somewhat milk related. As I have cut out and seriously limited my milk intake this week, his spitting up has gotten way better. Not gone but better.
School- Yep James and I are pluggin along at our masters one class as a time. So each weekend I can be found rushing to get my homework done.
Building a house- Yes, we are building a house. With that, we are trying to sell our house and our rental home. I'm very excited to go back to just one house and not 3. I'll do a separate post with details about this little stressor.

With all three in toe at the grocery store today, another lady said you look like I normally do. She was there with just her baby but said she had two others about my kids ages. I told her I normally try to shop while Sariah is at preschool. She was apparently there while hers were in preschool. Just a funny quick exchange. I wouldn't say I have 3 completely under control or anything but I am starting to get used to the crazy. I also took all 3 to the bank to argue some fees (love Commerce by the way they were awesome today). Normally I would never want to do this but sometimes you just have to.
My motto lately has been "I can do hard things"
Life has been crazy and hard and nothing has gone according to plan. But it hasn't been horrible. I'm still super blessed and I'm learning I can do hard things. I can take on a lot. And maybe I don't handle it perfectly but that isn't what matters. What matters is I try.
