Along Came Morning Without Sleep, But Along Came A Treat

         It was a long night with an even more long day ahead.  Morning came and my dear friend Joanna sent me a text and I was not even up yet.  I am a morning person and like to arise before the children, but just could not get going.  I wanted to bake us muffins for breakfast and we had  already planned our morning to go visit our local Fish Hatchery.  I managed to get up and get myself ready and I am so glad that I did.  With the girls being tired from frequent wake ups the night before it was Mommy to the rescue.  I have made it a point to be as calm and happy as I can no matter what.  Daily morning prayers have helped a lot. 

            The Nimbus Fish Hatchery was a great place to take the kids for a homeschooling field trip.  We learned about the life cycle of the salmon, saw how their color changes,  and looked at actual eggs during their different stages.  Also, we were able to watch some of the workers tagging and checking on the steelhead trout and go to the fish raceway to feed the fish.  All of the kids had a blast and Caleb and the girls were happy to have their Grandma and little friend Andrew come along with us for our little adventure.  The workers were all very nice and you can tell that they enjoy their jobs.  I will definitely be taking the children again soon, as I enjoyed the experience as well.



         After coming back home the day did get more hectic and Mommy was very exhausted and tired, but we got a few things done along with our afternoon monthly meeting with Caleb’s educational specialist for school.  Scott and I are very grateful for her helpfulness and guidance on certain issues with the type of schooling we do and enjoy the Thomas Jefferson Education method of learning.  This was another daily adventure in the life of the Sanderson Family.  All of the sleepless nights and difficulties that a day might bring is all worth it to have these precious moments that my family can share together and I hold so dear.
