One step closer to figuring me out

One of the things that still amazes me is how much I crave this family.
I have the opportunity to be in Seattle for the next little while, and from the moment I got here, I haven't been able to wipe the smile off my face.
Something inside me (that I deny daily) comes alive when I am around these silly little peeps. Waking up at all hours, making four different breakfasts, changing the poopoos, grocery shopping, conquering mountains of laundry, and turning off the TV to push them out the door ("pushing" aka not being able to open the door fast enough because they can't wait to get outside) just makes me feel so wonderful. It's the sweetest kind of exhaustion.
I don't think their parents truly realize how much I really do love the time I get to spend with all of these crazy munchkins.
Feeling like you are absolutely in the right place, at the right time, making little mistakes but always moving forward, is such an incredibly wonderful feeling.

Um these photos are copyrighted so you will be hearing from our lawyers. Thanks for watching our kiddos while we were in Hawaii. We couldn't have gone without you, at least not without major stress. Sorry they made you puke. But they carry diseases. Everyone keep asking where you are. We tell them Utah. They look at us with an expression of questioning, because they all assumed you were back until March. What they don't know is that we have this crazy plan to give up our life and leave to Hawaii. And as soon as WE figure out what we are doing then we would love to have you back. Sorry to take so long. Luvs. Amy
