Take time in the day!

I don't have any new pictures to post because my camera is cooling off after vacation. But, something happened this morning that I had to share. I have been very busy since we got back from vacation working on a couple of dances that I am teaching this week to the Junior High Dance Team. Needless to say, the housework has gotten behind. So, this morning I have been working like crazy to do some catch up. With that said, I fixed the girls some lunch and as I was hollaring at Laci to come eat, she kept saying just a second and I grew more frustrated. I went to find her and couldn't believe what I saw. I quietly watched as she was taking the cloths out of the washer and putting them in the dryer. She has helped me with this a few times but I never thought she was paying attention. She climbed up and got 2 dryer sheets (I like the extra smell good) and put them in. She turned the knob and counted up to make sure the right light was on and started the machine! She still didn't know I was watching and in her "miss attitude" voice she said, "mom, I'm drying the cloths!!!!" I had a lump in my throat and I was swollen with pride. Now, as I think about it, it's amazing how God can take a 4 year old and remind me to stop, slow down and remember the important things! I gave Laci a huge hug and let her know how proud I was of her! I hope I never forget to do that. Uncle Wes took her to the pool so I had some extra time with Megan. So, as I put her down for a nap, I rocked her a little longer than usual! I never want them to think I am too busy to love em!!!!!!
