Though, this week has been amazingly serene. I am down to one part time daycare sweetie, and both of my older children are in public school now. Do I dare even count my Kindergarten child as a school aged kid? Her activities are all fun and games! We do a lot reading aloud, learning to write letters and numbers and simple addition with edible items, yum.
So, I've felt sort of guilty about all the free time I have. Though, my house is much cleaner.
Tuesday morning we went to the library, just the 3 and 5 year olds and I. We lingered over books and played the educational computer games. Today we used our free morning to visit the YMCA. I had a super relaxing swim and a nice run. No need to wait for a lane or a treadmill, and the kids had fun playing with other toys. I've had plenty of time to read my Bible. I checked out a book from the library to read for pleasure.

It is a financial concern. I've actually applied to wait tables to make up the gap. But for now, and more pointedly for tomorrow, I will enjoy my "vacation" and my peaceful, easy days with little ones who soon won't be so.
I feel a little guilty about plenty of time to read and the opportunity to lay on the couch every afternoon for a little bit - but it won't last...and I just may have earned it.
