Sleep will come

My mom once told me, "Don't worry about sleep--it will come. Just get some when you can." That's exactly the way it is around here--on top of the kids and their fluctuating schedules, we have so many exciting things going on that Chris and I have decided to quit stressing about sleep--we have learned to "just get some when we can." I think "when we can" is going to be after this life! I've been telling the Lord that I can make it without much sleep throughout this short life if He just promises to leave me in the grave and let me sleep for about 3 days before I join the party in heaven :). I haven't gotten a clear answer from Him on that one yet.
Regardless, Chris and I don't want to miss out on anything --except maybe the evening news, the MLB playoffs, and the drop off line at school--occasionally.


Here are a few pics of Chris, the boys, and Annie attempting to "get some when they can."

I think that Chris is faking it in the last picture. Come on, admit it...You needed a picture with Annie in it so you had him pose,right?

No--He's not faking it. That was Monday night during the MLB playoffs that he was dying to watch!! Just as soon as I posted this--I woke up this morning to find Jack alseep on the floor by the front door. What is his deal with that?
