Who knew that after a little bit over a year of being a stay-at-home mom going back to work was going to be so challenging! Challenging in the sense that I do not have extra time to do the things I used to do before. Things are going great! Kids are becoming more independent by the day, the girl has her driver’s license and she has a car-now all she needs is a job!
We just came back from our vacation at the beach, our destination was, once again, Oak Island in North Carolina and we enjoyed it. I think that it was the kid’s favorite vacation thus far. They were able to have some friends with them and they created many super cool memories, it was drama free, and in all honestly it was really good to have all the kids together (well, almost all of them…there were two missing (Devany and Skylar), but maybe one day we can have them all.
We were able to bring Janie’s bestie from Mississippi…it was a surprise for the girl, for her 16th birthday and trust me when I say…it was the best surprise ever. Mikayla and Janie are two peas in a pod, they are so alike is ridiculous, so they are stuck together like glue every minute of every day since Mikayla’s arrival. Sadly, she has to go back home this coming Saturday. But, we are more than thankful to Mikayla’s parents for allowing the big surprise to happen and for allowing Mikayla to flight to South Carolina. I will forever be thankful to them!
Now, we have one week left before the big summer event, Devany’s Quinceanera!!!! So, once the celebration is over we have to start getting ready to go back to school. This year will be the 1st year that Janie is driving to school (adult-ing) and I am happy and a bit scared about it. I just have to trust my amazing God that He will always look after my kids and protect them from any harm.
J and I are craving an alone getaway…maybe one day…maybe sooner than later, who knows. Just a few days to unwind and enjoy quiet time. Once you reach a certain age, you crave quite…and that is exactly what we want. So, soon…coming soon 🙂
