Loved Our "Boring" Night...

Last night was nothing special, but it’s the first time in a long time that I can remember us just chilling as a family.

The boys had haircuts, so John and I took them over to his sister’s to get that done. After that we rushed home and ate some dinner and John and Josh headed out to football practice. I immediately started getting the house picked up because the cleaners are coming today.

As I was putting away the laundry that Miss G had done, Ryan was practically on top of me! It was so annoying because every time I tried to move, he was there in my way. And he kept wanting to close the drawers that I had open! But I kept making myself step back and enjoy his little chatter and high-pitched squeals :) I ended up switching out the boys’ summer and winter clothes which desperately needed to be done.

After that was done we went down and started watching a movie, per Kylie’s request. She chose Shrek The Third, which I hadn’t seen yet, so that was nice. About ½ way through it John and Josh got back and somehow we all ended up in the playroom. John and the kids were playing Guitar Hero, Ryan was bowling, I was sitting playing with Colton, and at times Kylie and I both were doing gymnastics.

I kept looking around and trying really hard to enjoy those moments because I know how rare they are anymore. John and/or always seem to have some type of work to do around the house, or we have somewhere that we need to take the kids…it’s not often that we’re all in the same room at the same time anymore…and I know that it’s just going to get worse and more rare :( Part of the reason is that there just isn’t a lot of time in the evenings, so when the kids are in school we run out of time so quickly. Last night the kids didn’t get to bed until 10:00! But it was worth it :)

So I had fun last night, and I’m going to try super hard to make sure we have more of those evenings!

awesome you all had that time together. You were able to just observe all the cute things your kids to, and simply "enjoy" Glad you had that time, like you said, special family time together is so rare these days!!
