5:10 pm got home made quick dinner of leftovers and sandwiches, ate dinner with the fam and then David left to go back to work, fed Nephi
6:00 pm cleared the table and started FHE, Kelli came over and we had FHE with a lesson by Faith and chocolate cake with cookies and cream ice cream, emailed a teacher with a concern
6:45 pm watched pre-recorded Extreme Makeover: Home Edition with the kids
7:30 pm got the kids to brush teeth and put them to bed!!!!!
8:30 pm went to lock the laundry rooms with Gloria and Nephi, then nursed Nephi
9:40 pm had to go back to the laundry room and lock up one that someone was using earlier
10:00 pm Nephi finally went to sleep and Gloria and I laid down
10:45 pm Gloria FINALLY fell asleep and I got to get on the computer

My days are full of excitement and facinating things!! This is the life!! It is best explained my my mother-in-law, "It's like you live on rollerskates!!" SO TRUE!! but I wouldn't change it for anything. It really is fun to be a mom and I love it!! Faith and Hyrum start drama class tomorrow. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursdays from 3:30 - 5 in North Highlands, about 6 miles from my house. I think that they will have a great experience and I know that it will drive me crazy, but it is only for 4 weeks...I think that I can handle it!! We'll see if I survive!!
