Wow, I found a bit more time!

Now that's a rarity! It's 2:15pm--naptime, but today I don't think I'm going to nap (something I MAY regret later). I have so many things I want to do and so little free time. I've been working on getting a bit more organized around the house as we're very CLEAN, but very UNneat people. I bought some organizing bins from Target the other day while my parents took the girls to the Bay Area Discovery Museum. Guess where those bins are? Right next to the front door, still neatly stacked, just the way they were when I brought them home from the store. *sigh* Oh well, I'll get to it one of these days. I seriously regret not having gotten my life completely together before having another child. Hahaha...yeah, like that's possible?!? I can see how people tend to put off having a child until things are "just right", but honestly, that will NEVER happen. So I'm trying to relax and realize that everything is just as it should be (with room for small improvements). It's hard, but it certainly makes life more enjoyable.
I'm slowly working on getting a bit more of a routine down with the girls, but Luke is still a bit of a wild card. I'm guessing that'll be the case for a while though. But I'm working on getting Savannah into doing a bit of school work while Abby and Luke nap. That's going pretty well, but my goodness, she's awfully lazy when it comes to learning. It's amazing because when she's learning on her own, she's totally into it, but you just cannot force anything upon this girl. She likes to practice her reading without actually looking at the page--gee, that works well! And she resists me quite a bit, but we are making progress! I'm guessing that she'll be reading proficiently by the time she starts Kindergarten--even if it kills me! Hahaha!
Anyway, I've got to run because it's time for her "BORING" reading lessons.
I wanted to mention that if any of you reading this blog want a link to my Flickr account, let me know...I've sent an invitation to most people, but not everyone. It's been a bit difficult to post photos here (due to my lack of motivation, I suppose), so at least you can see our family photos there!
TTFN!

Hi!
Just wanted to let you know that I do come and check your site-it isn't all in vain! Thanks for the updates and I am glad things are continuing to go well. One of these days we will all have to get together for a N. Cal babywhisperer meetup!
