Yesterday was a really challenging day with the kids. Jeez. Sometimes there is just about as much fussing and whining as one girl can take! I remember fighting a lot with my siblings as a kid and I remember it kind of driving Mama crazy. Now I am in her shoes (except with only a fraction of the young'uns) and I appreciate her patience with us. I could have been more patient yesterday. But, you know what? We got through it. And we made apple chips to boot. So, not a total fail, right?
