Strangely Difficult

My three oldest children are off all week at Totus Tuus, which is sort of like day camp VBS for Catholic kids. I am left home with a three year old and an almost two year old, who are both incensed that they aren't old enough to go along.

Oddly enough, without my helpers, these two are in some ways harder to manage by themselves than the whole lot of them is. These two are most likely to run and no one else is around to grab them. And I hadn't realized how much I miss the conversations with the bigger kids (as long as they aren't devolving into arguments between them).

Also, this getting up, feeding everyone breakfast, making lunches and running out the door to get somewhere? This is why I don't do school. A week of it may kill me.
