Adventures in the land of busy
But what a truly exciting schedule--what, between work, relatives and a impending conference on the following week.
Overtime is mandatory this week, as there is a lot needed and I haven't placed much over the past few weeks. If I'm extremely fortunate, I'll only have to do one day. I'd normally not be too thoughtful of this, but for the other obligations and distraction that hang all around me.
The house is full of little feet, little (i.e. big) voices, little falls, little kisses and the like. That's just how it goes with the complete gathering of Reimers nieces and nephews. I've been enjoying every minute of it I must confess. I should, I guess, while I'm not the parent who has to deal with the many entertaining situations sustained on a minute-by-minute basis. Here's a glimpse into last night's gathering of the clans in the backyard after dinner.
Mom and first-born grandchild, Mary, hangin’ out under the arbor.
A typical goofy scene out back of the house.
Anna mediating between the animal and Justus, the animal chaser.
Again, the conference starts a week from tomorrow...officially that is. There's plenty to make it seem like it's already in progress. I suppose we should just be thankful there's not a huge amount kids being put up by our church. Burlington is taking a huge chunk of them by default.
Yes, ramroding the conference has been, and will be God willing, a challenge to be savored.
