In other words, it may not last :)
We are home!
Eric left the hotel bright and early this morning and then I realized I had the task of packing and loading up ALL of our stuff in the car by myself. I was pretty pleased with my efficiency as well as happy to be heading home to sleep in my own bed :)
Olivia wasn't so pleased ...
She loves hotels and is always sad to leave. She asked if we could stay in one in our hometown. Ummmm ... okay???
So, I've had a revelation. Actually, I have it every year at this time ... my kids need redirection. An adjustment, if you will. When summer hits and we're doing fun stuff everyday, getting tired of all the togetherness (read: fighting and bickering) and becoming lackadaisical in our chores and manners, it's time for a little come-down-to-reality check. Selfishness is in full swing and making me twitch.
So, an adjustment cometh.
Which means I'll probably be seeing a lot more of the expression above.
But, I'm strong. I can take it. Boot camp for the Lail girls starts tomorrow :)
I want them to be sweet and kind, but most importantly to one another. The only way I know how to teach that is by having them serve one another, as well as the entire family.
There's something to be said for discipline and routine, as well as serving someone else to take the focus off ourselves.
Praying for progress and hearts centered back to Christ where they belong (mine included!).
