n our church, children are baptized at 8 years old. This is a huge milestone in a child's life, and one that family and friends come to celebrate and show their support. Our oldest son (child #2) recently celebrated his 8th birthday and will be baptized this Saturday afternoon. The actual baptism will be held at the church, but following the baptism we will host a luncheon for the family and friends that attend. We are so excited for our son and for the chance to gather with family and friends, but with five children...a house gets pretty messy...and quickly!
Trying to stay on top of the mess can be a daunting, and almost impossible challenge. Just keeping up with the basics like dishes laundry and a quick surface clean can take more hours than I have in a day so when it comes to deep cleaning, the job requires a lot of time and effort! With guests coming this weekend (and some arriving from out of town to stay with us as early as Thursday) it is time to hit the ground running for a deep clean (or at least a sorta deep clean...). If you don't see posts in the next couple of days, please know it is because of the mad cleaning going on around here! Look for photos of our cute son all dressed up in his cute suit and with family and friends this weekend!
Wish me luck!
