We took the kids to the public library and then swimming after school today and we even went out for supper as a family. It was really fun. The kids wore themselves out at the pool and ALL THREE are blissfully asleep right now. Perfect.
I am so proud of my boys. They are growing so fast and they are learning so much and |I think they are amazing. Tonight I got to watch Aiden swim the length of the pool several times over without wearing a life jacket... he couldn't do that two months ago. I got to watch Owen jump into the deep end and swim all the way to the shallow end by himself without a life jacket... he was scared of the deep end two months ago. Tonight Aiden and Owen each read me two stories and I adore hearing them read. It amazes me how they have learned this amazing new skill. And even though they are both still behind I am amazed at just how far they have come in such a short time. They are just amazing.
Even Olivia had fun swimming with daddy tonight. It was a really good day.
But I have to admit something...I am watching more news on Haiti right now and my heart is just breaking for them. The insane discrepancies between my day and the day of a typical mom in Haiti today is just so wrong. I am a woman of faith and I believe that God is in control... even in the midst of chaos. But I can't help but wonder why God would allow this particular disaster to happen to a country that was already struggling so much.
It does make me incredibly thankful for the safety of my family and thankful for the fact that we live in Canada.
