So, if this month goes as planned, I will…
Go to Kindergarten “round-up” to register my 5-year-old for “big school”
Spend a weekend celebrating Easter with SIX little chicks under my roof
Watch my husband perform the wedding ceremony of my baby brother
Sell my house (maybe wishful thinking)
AND HAVE A BABY.
Even if I survive the pace of the month, it is likely I will not survive the emotions of it. So this Monday, the first Monday of April, called for an extra special MMM activity. And what better way to kick off this barrel race of a month than a ROADTRIP!
Yesterday, I loaded my three kiddos, some movies, a picnic lunch and various other road-trip-paraphernalia and headed east. Granted, we only traveled about 60 miles east and were back before bedtime, but it was a still a roadtrip. I had been a little sad that we were going to miss the Bluebonnet Festival again this year so at the last minute I decided to at least visit the “Bluebonnet Capital”, see the gorgeous wildflowers and spend the whole day just being with my kiddos.
I kept thinking over and over…
This may be one of the last times I introduce my THREE children.
The next time we do such and such there will be FOUR.
And because of that,
I’m so thankful to have this little day of memories carved in my mommy heart.
A treasure of a Monday, for sure.
