Blogging is an interesting past time.Some days I have so many stories and pictures to post,
I feel as though I am only capturing a sliver of what is happening at the Bungalow.
Other times I feel as though the well is dry.
The blog is weighing heavily on my mind these days.
It's as though I have nothing to share that is even remotely interesting.
I realize also that my camera has been staying in its case.
I'm not sure.
Even Middlest asked me why I'm not taking pictures anymore.
It could be that life here, over the past few weeks has been busy.
The kind of busy that when your head hits the pillow
you are not even sure what you did that made you feel so tired;
because it's all just a blur.
While I have stayed home to attend to the activities of the older two,
he has been driving with Youngest to soccer tournaments.
Both have been seven hours away.
It's just what the reality is, when you live in a very northern town.
And in between these weekend jaunts he has been traveling for work.
Two weekends over the past month, he has arrived home Thursday night
just in time to pack and leave for the weekend.
Despite everyone having several commitments we decided
everyone was going to go to Youngest's soccer tournament,
Eldest missed an important planning meeting
and Middlest missed a basketball tournament.
But it was necessary.
We all needed to feel like a family again.
I am so glad we did.
Everyone felt it.
It was good for us.
And no I did not take out my camera,
except for a few action shots on the soccer field.
I just wanted to be present.
It was what I needed.
This getting busier as the kids get older is so true.
And I know it isn't just us.
We don't seem to have the opportunity to see our friends anymore,
as we realize they are living the same reality.
And even though The Agronomist had to get up this morning
to fly away for another three days,
We know it will go by fast.
Our family cup is full.
