Life with babies is so different from life with kids in school. I hesitate to say that now is just as hard because I promised myself I'd never forget the physical suffering of disturbed sleep and being pooped on and wet sleeping bags. Yep, OK -- those first four years trump everything else I think. But it's my first year with kids in school and me at work so there are growing pains of course. I know it will get easier. I'll start letting go of my unrealistic expectations and enjoying life as it is.

Spring break is coming and then summer, which means my loves and I will have much more time for camping and adventuring and photos and swimming and hiking and kayaking and all the other fun things. Life ebbs and flows and we've done our best with the school stuff and soon we'll be rewarded with the looser lifestyle called vacation. Bring it.
