It just so happens we have a perfect amount of people to make this work in our family without having to do any difficult juggling. Brian and I switch off each month, and then we rotate through the kids every three months and it works out beautifully.
In January Brian and Jake went to the car show and had a blast.
Last month Evie and I went to get her hair trimmed and then to lunch and a movie.
This month it was Daddy and Lila's turn.
They went to breakfast at Hi-hop (IHOP) and then went shopping for new church shoes and tights. Brian also got her some little flower earrings to wear with her Easter dress, and he did good! Lila had a blast hanging out with her Daddy and getting to have Mac'n Cheese for breakfast.

I am making a new goal to post at least once a week. I will post at least once every Saturday, and to take the pressure off it's going to be very formulaic. I am going to write about six things that made me grateful or happy throughout the week. And isn't it funny how often those two emotions go hand in hand. Think about it, you can't be sad if you are feeling truly grateful...

Today the kids were gathered around the table writing letters and drawing pictures to send to their Grandparents who are serving a mission in Denmark. Brian was reading the weekly email that his mom sends aloud. In the first part Terrie said that it had been a busy week and they were really looking forward to their P-day. Evie interrupted him to ask, "What's a P-day?" Brian explained that P stands for preparation and that it is the day of the week when the missionaries do their laundry, shopping, errands, ect. so that they can work on sharing the gospel during the rest of the week. Lila wasn't buying that. She said, very matter of factly, "Nu-uh. That is it day that they get to go pee-pee." Hmmm. I feel bad for her Sunday School teachers... oh wait. That's me.
As they were finishing their letters Evie glanced over to Jake's paper and asked, "Why are you writing in Danish?" Jake chuckled and said, "That's not Danish, it's cursive." Evie, looking skeptical, replied, "Well they're not going to be able to read it."
