feeling a little guilty

I have spent the last hour sitting at our church browsing the internet in peaceful quiet except for the music from my blog that I am enjoying.  I would prefer to be at home doing this, but since my computer is still being de-bugged, I can't be at home.  Hopefully, our computer will be fixed soon and I will be able to return to the things I enjoy, like blogging regularly and even more importantly, reading your blogs regularly!

Where are my little noisemakers kids, you may ask?  The answer to that question is why I am feeling a little guilty.

This morning, I dropped all three kids off at another local church for Vacation Bible School.  The older kids were invited by some of our homeschool friends who attend the church, so I don't feel too bad about them.  D, on the other hand, is just going because the older kids went and because I thought a week of mornings to myself might be nice.

Okay, that is a giant understatement!  As a matter of fact, when I told my Mama that D could go to VBS at a church where I am not teaching this year, I told her that I didn't know what I would do with myself, but it would probably include a few minutes of sitting somewhere just drinking in the silence!

I guess I feel guilty because I have never thought of using church as a babysitter before.  My children have been in VBS all their lives and they have even gone to VBS at a church where I wasn't teaching, but always because they have friends there.  Maybe I am just splitting hairs, I don't know.  I am just going to take consolation in the fact that my friends who are members there don't seem to be bothered.

Okay, I am over feeling guilty now, so don't tell me if you think I should feel that way, 'cause for now I am just going to enjoy the silence!  And go to Wal-mart with no one begging for anything!

Will is there helping with the preschoolers, so maybe D will see him! Enjoy the quiet!

Oh girl, don't be silly. Enjoy yourself! D is. I checked on him several times and he seemed very happy, didn't even bother to look up at me!

Drink it in - only four more days!

Love ya!
