I never dreamed I would, but I actually did it! At the beginning of the week, I made a huge list of things I wanted to accomplish before my kids came home for Spring Break. It was a little intimidating. I wasn't sure how I was going to be able to do it all.
There remains one thing left to do. I need to load up the van with all the fun stuff I have prepared. But it is all ready to go. Then, Brian will come home in a couple of hours and we will head to the airport in Portland to pick up our first arrivals, Erica and Miranda. Jackie will follow on Sunday afternoon. Then, Robert and his beautiful little family will get here on Tuesday.
Although I am not excited about driving to the airport that many times, I am happy that each group will get to be fussed over individually. Hopefully they will all feel how much they are loved, and how special we think they are. It has been driven home to me that my family is the center of my life, my thoughts, my efforts, my concerns. As it should be. I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the great blessings I have been given.
I plan on taking lots of pictures this coming week. I'm pretty sure I will be in seventh heaven.
