Spring break

Friday, March 25, 2016


I found these sun kissed notes throughout the home last week. If you walk through my home right now, I can tell you that there are sweet notes like this in several different spots where it likely catch my eye or Mike's or Zelie's. My dear Sophia has been writing love notes and placing them in little spots so that we can surprisingly find them.

Her love note was a much needed reminder last week when I was in the thick of having a full blown ugly mama melt down. And let me tell you, mama melt downs are way uglier than the ones their children produce. The house was a disaster and we were on the verge of finishing up school for spring break. The baby was sick so I wasn't getting any sleep, and my list of 'must do's' was longer then I can even achieve. It was then that I remembered reading somewhere about American women feeling that they need to do it all by themselves, otherwise feel incompetent as wives and mother's. Whereas women in other countries believe in help. Not only do they believe in having help in raising children, cleaning the house, etc., etc., but find it to be a wonderful opportunity to be able to give someone else a job. Doesn't it take a village to raise a child after all?

So, this week I asked and called for help. I got my trusty housecleaner to come and give my house a good deep scrub, while I cleaned out and organized several closets. I found this humble and joyful man who really needs the work, to come and rake the piles upon piles of leaves in my one acre yard, so I can fold laundry and pay bills. The girls got to spend more quality time with me, and Clare started fully crawling! Overall, this spring breaks been so good for me. Its been a week of deep spring cleaning the home, taking deep breathes, unloading some burdens, and just truly having a break. Let me tell, spring break is more for the mom's when you are homeschooling then the kids (ha!).

Anyways, I hope you all have a beautiful and glorious Easter!
