One of those weeks!

This week has been "one of those weeks" ... where the to do list seems to never end, there are never enough hours to accomplish everything, we are all completely exhausted, and the house literally looks like a tornado ripped through it. 

Jordyn's week ---
*spelling practice
*books to read
*math facts to practice
*Star of the Week ... organize show and tell, 10 pictures for school, and a treat for her classmates
*100 day swimming party at school
*1st graders led chapel
*dress like a 100-year old for the hundredth day of school

Jayla's week ---
*site words to read and write
*count 100 items for the hundredth day of school
*snack for school
*books to read

Jaxon's week ---
*lab work for 24 hours
*show and tell
*Tumblebus on Tuesday
*sledding day on Wednesday

My week ---
*organizing everything on the above mentioned lists
*meeting my friends for supper and exchanging freezer meals again (love this!)
*GEMS on Wednesday night and bringing dessert for all of our counselors and their daughters
*chapel to watch Jordyn
*falling down the steps on Tuesday night while carrying too much laundry (insert a lot of screaming and some major bruising ... thankful I didn't hit my head)
*lounge duty at work -- putting treats in the lounge everyday
*staff luncheon -- made a dessert
*looking at 10 loads of clean laundry that need to be folded and put away (hey - at least it's clean ---wrinkled, but clean) 
*I'm happy 10 loads are clean, but I'm pretty sure there are at least 4 more to wash! Yes, we go through a lot of clothes between work clothes, school clothes, work out/basketball clothes, towels.
*drying snow gear everyday
*organizing backpacks, snow gear and a million other things to go to school everyday
*waiting on my next jury duty date

Justin's week ---
*work, work and work -- he's been putting in some crazy hours and traveling out of town
*delivering Jaxon's labs to FedEx (and YES -- they made it to Chicago this time in less than 24 hours! Not 9 days!)
*guy time on Tuesday night with some good friends 
*chapel to watch Jordyn
*teaching JA twice in my classroom
*delivering the kids to school (Justin takes the three kids most days ... I had to laugh at what his car may have looked like on Wednesday morning ... 3 kids, 3 backpacks, 1 lunch bag, 3 bags of snow gear, 1 sled, and a whole bag of treats for two different snack celebrations for Jordyn's class. I'm guessing it was comical.)
*take Gizmo to the groomer

On a side note ... my dad got home from North Carolina late Monday night. The roads were crappy, so he stayed at our house since he didn't fly in until about 10:00. The kids were pretty excited to be surprised by Grandpa when they woke up on Tuesday morning. 

Jordyn has a friend staying over tomorrow night. So ... that means we will all be in clean up mode tonight!!
