We are in the last two week of school here and I am feeling a little overwhelmed.... or maybe very overwhelmed! The girls are tired, I am exhausted, mornings are shorter, uniforms seem to disappear every morning, there are a trillion things to do in the house, out of the house, during the week and on the weekends... so many things that I think my writing muse decided to go on a hunger strike and I haven´t seen her lately! Oh and add to that that am potty training Ari, which went so smoothly that now she won´t do number two and am having the worst time as she will not go to the bathroom, she is so strong willed that she will hold it in for days until she can no more and then it hurts so bad that the cycle starts again... it´s pretty scary for me, and I get really nervous, but hopefully this too will pass soon, I hope!
It´s a good thing that somehow, in the middle of the chaos God always finds his way of saying ¨stop.. breath... go on!!!¨
We are officially done with any type of competition and called it a wrap this weekend with Emi´s Flamenco show which was amazing!!! She danced beautifully, she danced with her soul and her imagination.... and oh my just looking at her eyes sparkle was a show in its own! It was a good thing that this time I decided to leave the camera behind and trust the academy´s photographer... I enjoyed the show, was able to concentrate on every move Emi made, and once I got home I took pictures more relaxed!
Here are some of the moments that in between all the rush in our lives, I was able to stop, breath, look... open my eyes and take in all the gloriousness of the ordinary in our lives. Because waking up with a baby in my bed is magic, is love... is life...
And seeing my Dad celebrate his day with all his grandchildren, even though there was one that didn´t want to smile, is a blessing!!!
Seeing my oldest lead the way for her baby sister makes my heart rejoice!
And giving the girls one extra lap around our block once we get home just to hear their laugh is priceless and worth all the traffic I had just endured minutes before!
And then again... God´s present at the end of the day... magnificent!
Have a great rest of the week... and stop and look around! Don´t forget to share what you are up to at your corner of the world, and make some new friends.. life is better when shared!
