Sports might be over for the time being, but we've unwittingly entered the crazy Feb-March season.
This morning it was a mess in our house as two boys prepared to go away for the weekend to the middle school youth group camp (one as a leader, the other as a camper) and the third boy prepared for the eighth grade Tokyo Tour (a modified one-day scavenger hunt designed to help eighth graders learn about team work).
This weekend will be a little oasis in the midst of the craziness as we'll have just one boy at home. I think it's the first time ever that we'll have our middle son on his own all weekend!
Then next Wednesday I go away to the annual women in ministry retreat for two nights.
Two weeks later our middle son goes on the two-day Kyoto trip that all eighth graders at CAJ look forward to.
Before he returns, David and our eldest will leave for the eight-night senior ministry trip to Thailand.
Just a few days after they return we're planning to go on an epic camping trip with some other staff families from CAJ.
As I said, crazy! Not to mention that I received an email today that said it's only about 60 school days until our eldest son graduates from high school. Arrgggghhh.
So this weekend will be mostly quiet, though things are already crowding into it. All good things, but how much can a person take?
I wasn't kidding when I said that life was moving right along here. Dwelling too long on last week couldn't work.
