It makes sense that after school is when I would be busiest with work, but it is hard because that’s when I most want to be with my kids.

Usually, though, I get to at least pick them up two or three times a week.

Today it just so happened that I had a reschedule in such a way as to even have time to walk to the school to pick up Five (Six was already at speech), and the weather was gorgeous so we walked home to enjoy the sunshine and the one on one time.

It was a magical, like only a mama knows, and I soaked in every single moment… even if I had to turn around and go back to work as soon as we got home, those are ten minutes I will never forget.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
