This summer the usual and the unusual happened. The kids were on the Larkey Sharks Swim Team again.
During all that was happening with my mother I tried to keep things as normal as possible with the kids. Gabe came down with an upper respiratory infection which kept him out of the water for a week and Chad ended up in the ER on the very night we laid my mother to rest with kidney stones. I sure hoped we were done with all this trail and tribulation as I was really done with trying to keep it all together.
The boys kept me distracted for the remainder of the summer with swim team and just being the boys that they are. Gabe finished swimming and started soccer all in the same week. Then school started and the distraction was gone. Though as I have learned life does go on. It's hard, but I am adapting.
Now life just goes on. I'm working for a little while at school and of course still volunteering. Plus I am part of the PTA and the School Site Council. It may sounds like a lot, but I am actually slowing down and focusing on the family and myself much more. Doing things with my father and keeping us all focused and busy.
