|"expanding family" sculpture by Hazel Shumway|
Yep. We're expanding. We'll be adding another little Shumway sometime around March 16th, 2010.
This "construction" is most certainly the culprit of my strong case of the Blahs. I had forgotten how much energy it takes to grow a baby! Between pregnancy, horrible colds all around and the huge shift to kindergarten things have pretty much fallen apart around here. I'm just trying to remind myself that we are under SERIOUS construction. It's ok that things aren't perfectly together and organized and clean and happy. This is a season of life and it won't last forever. In fact, it won't last long at all, so I might as well enjoy the dust, enjoy the afternoon naps and go easy on our little family as we move forward through these new challenges.
So, I'm going to breath and enjoy a little more. Especially since Jeff is calling this one "Ultimo."
