Back to school.

Today is the first day back to school for the kids and Jay and I. It has been slow going this morning as everyone is out of habit. This year is the first year I have had all six kids in school at the same time, Ashlee is only half day, and it has been harder than I thought it would be. Granted, Jesse and or Shalee end up staying home a couple of times a week so I am not alone all everyday but..... I enjoy having a few hours to work on homework without being interupted but I am always listening for kids. next year is going to be very strange for me as I will have the whole day to myself. At least I will have time to do all my homework and have a clean house for a few hours a day! That will be different.

It is only 5 degrees here in Orem Utah this morning. So cold! Our furnace stopped working right before Christmas and we had to purchase a new one. We had no idea how bad the furnace had become over the last 5 years but as the new furnace started heating the house back up we were amazed at how comfortable our house was! This morning I am especially grateful!

Well...I better start my day!
