Oh friends I'm exhausted. Swim team started back this week (for the kids, I'm not hurting the eyes of the innocents with my bathing suit presence). It's always a crazy time when swim team starts. On Tuesdays we go straight from gymnastics to swim team followed by a crazy rush to clean the house and late dinner. On Wednesdays we start with a crazy rush to clean the house followed by swim team practice, literally throwing dinner into the kid's mouths and then a mad rush to church.  To top it off we still have regular chores, errands and school work today.

After a long and cold winter I made the decision last week to take advantage of spring. Thursday we hit up the Houston Museum of Fine Arts simply because it's free on Thursdays.  Yes, free things inspire my calendar.  Honestly I was surprised at how attentive all three girls were.  Don't worry, they're not perfect angels, but they were intrigued.  The middle one, Princess Goofy, was the most captivated.
