Back in the "Routine"

by Kristi Van Dyk in

After two days off of fantastic vacation (spending them with my husband, my family, and our might as well be  a family "compound" friends), I'm back into the typical routine. Although it's 9:26 and Benjamin is down for his usual 45 minute special, Kayleigh requested a nap as well. She had a great time at the lake this weekend, but I know she's tired out. So, I think she's going to have a 2 nap day to help her catch up on sleep. Since its raining, sticky and gross, I don't feel the slightest bit guilty about letting my kids have a "sleep in" kind of day. Here are a few photos from the kids at Grandpa and Grandma Van Dyk's cottage. (We weren't there to take pics this weekend, so these are from the week before when they were there with Daddy) It's easy to see why today needs to be a "sleep in" kind of day! It's busy at the lake!

Kudos to Daddy for taking some great pictures with our new DSLR camera. I'm a HUGE fan!!! Clear pictures, quickly captured, excellent action photos :) I'm a happy mommy who can't wait to make the year in review DVD for our family Christmas celebration! I'll have some amazing photos to use, now!
