Okay, seriously, don't know just how we are going to make it through the next week or so... We've been running on empty, just going going, for over a month now, and now we have just a couple days to finish the bare minimum of what needs to be finished at the house (not tons really, just some more painting and cleaning), and to get packed and moved this weekend.

I'm going to vent here, bear with me... but normal life with 4 little boys is challenging enough. That alone usually maxes us out, and that's with all the "margin" we've intentionally built in. (Weston's day off, his lunches home, his specifically designed work hours... basically support from daddy so that mommy doesn't just lose it sometimes...) We'll that's been gone for awhile now, and then some. We haven't had much family time, virtually no couple time, no breaks for mommy, and daddy's been working extra hard at the house in addition to everything going on at church (had a big event last weekend that required two consecutive 8am-midnight days, and tons of graduation parties).

Plus, its been extremely hot and muggy the last few days, and with no AC we are not sleeping well at all! Just dripping all day and night with sweat... glorious, eh?

And, its pouring today, and whenever it rains my kitchen (in the duplex) leaks badly from 2 places. So my kitchen may just end up submerged in water by day end.

Okay, enough already. That was probably way more than you wanted to know. But I had to get it out somewhere. Especially since this morning I am wondering just how I am going to make it through the day! :)

All whining aside, I know God will give us the strengh, and that its only for a limited time, at that we will get through it, and it will be worth it.

But now at least my whininess is recorded here for posterity...

Yikes, while I was typing this Kellan has figured out how to climb up on the table...

Ahhhhh. . . (sigh of relief)I'm not the only one! It's good to know that you're human. God's been trying to teach me to lean on Him more often too. Tough lessons!! Wish I could be closer to help with the boys. Just know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers.

By the way, I love the baseball pics of Caleb and Aidan's swimming pics. No time to comment on all of them! Also did I tell you that you can stay up to date with my family (The Knapp side) on the blog that Stephen started - http://theknappnews.blogspot.com/
