I am wife to a magnificent man and mother to five wonderful children. Three of my children were born in the Northwest and two were born thousands of miles away in Liberia, West Africa. Birthplace is no matter, all of my children were born in my heart. This is our journey.

Thank God it's Friday though it feels like a Monday

Today is highly overscheduled. The girls headed to the last day of VBS while older son had a friend over and younger son followed me around like a fly on honey.

Football certification is tonight and I am team mom which means I am in charge of THE BOOK. Now, THE BOOK is very important. It holds all of the registration information and this is no less than 8 pieces of paper per kid. With 27 kids on the team that's a lot of paperwork. If THE BOOK is not complete by tonight the kids don't get their gear and our team is held up. It's a really big deal. When I got the book two weeks ago 20 kids had incomplete paperwork and for some reason the parents aren't in a big hurry to comply. As of 5 minutes ago I am down to 6 kids with missing info and 3 parents are supposed to be on their way. Let's hope!

The canning saga continues. We are doing well and I'm not too overwhelmed. We are almost done with beans, I am moving on to relish, we will get a little break, then it will be on to carrots and tomato products. I just got a recipe for canning pizza sauce that I am really excited about. Thanks Frankie! (The less I have to pick up at the grocery store the better.)

I also have two extra kiddos today that hang out with us every Friday. Not a big deal but just a little more to manage.

So it's Friday but it feels like a Monday. I will sleep good tonight.
