Hello, grueling residency schedule. We have not missed you.
We’re all back in the saddle over here. Our weeks and weekends of togetherness have come to a close, for now.
The hardest thing about this phase of Rob’s career is that it often feels like it is violating our priorities. We love being together as a family, and the benefits are obvious. Things are just better when the discipline and frustrations are divided and the love and fun are multiplied.
But we do feel confident that this is where the Lord has us, and we are going to make every effort to be good stewards of the time we do get as a family. I am so grateful for the last two months. I really do feel refreshed. Having so much time as a family was a life line during these cold, drab winter weeks.
-Dot marker activities are the best.
-It was really nice outside after breakfast so we played for a bit. Then I decided that it was finally park/picnic weather and packed up all the necessary requirements for leaving the house at lunch time. We arrived at the park, and it was frigid. What the what! EBug hates for the wind to blow on her. Hates it. Genetic from her father’s mother I believe ;). So we had to leave.
-EBug does not go anywhere without her backpack. Not a single place. I blame myself for introducing a certain Spanish-speaking explorer to her life. I hear lots of “Come on vamanos. Everybody yet’s go!” these days.
-Brother Bear is a magnet to the dishwasher. I swear he wishes he could get inside and shut the door.
Any suggestions for how to make tomorrow feel like a weekend would be much appreciated!
