Too much of a good thing...

We have been incredibly busy this week. Mason has been attending VBS (vacation bible school) every morning from 9-12, then we hurry home, gobble some lunch and run up to the pool for swim lessons at 12:30. He also has Tae Kwon Do on Tues and Thurs nights and we have been going to watch Alexis play softball a few evenings. Today after dropping Mason off at VBS, Teagan and I headed to Walmart for some much needed supplies (we were down to 1 diaper in the house). I was leisurely strolling through the store because we never go to Walmart (it is clear across town). I enjoy seeing ALL the stuff there. We had only made it partway through the store when the youth director from church called stating that Mason was crying and they needed me to come get him....I grabbed the cart and ran up to check out, it was going to take at least 20 min to get back over there. Somehow I managed to spend about $100 and didnt even get diapers or a new pair of shoes for Teagan (both the reason for the trip). I finally got over there and Mason was standing at the door waiting for me. He had stopped crying but had his "quivering" voice when speaking to me. He said "I just missed you mom." Of course that melted my heart but I knew that this poor boy must just be exhausted from all the activity over the past 4 days. We headed home, he and Teagan both were down for a nap by 11am. I woke him up a little after 12 to head up to swim lessons..and though he was still a little tired, he did really really well. Tomorrow is Friday, thank goodness...Last day of VBS and swim lessons...the boy will be able to get more rest next week.
