We took our kids on an overnight to a little cabin by the woods and--I am not kidding or looking on the bright side or fake internet lifewashing--it was awesome. Everybody was good the whole time, even and most amazingly, me. Everybody had fun the whole time. It was like having six kids was the coolest thing ever.
I just wanted to tell you. For us, it has gotten easier. It has felt like such a long time getting here. Most of the time it is still hard and not awesome and it feels like someone is always in trouble and we're always yelling and we're always behind and I'm always disappointing everybody. But sometimes, it feels like we're getting there and we're making it and it's going to turn out OK. Ad astra per aspera, friends.
