Thoughts & Happenings 8/6/17

I'm finally ready to return to blogging after taking most of the last few months off. While gone, I've gotten my first trimester with baby #5 out of the way (woo-hoo!) and if things continue to go well, I will never have to endure a first trimester again, lol. It was actually really easy this… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 8/6/17

Thoughts & Happenings (May 15-31, 2017)

(This is two weeks worth of thoughts and happenings, which I'm planning to do for the whole summer. It's long but I really want to capture our days and also be able to write even if I'm not blogging like usual. So, read as much or as little as you want, or just check out… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings (May 15-31, 2017)

Day in the Life (May 2017)

May 22, 2017 Our night was somewhat better than the few before it, but Elizabeth still woke up a few times and was upset. When she got up at 5:45, I figured that she'd stay up after nursing, and I was right. We got up for the day at 6:00 and said good morning to… Continue reading Day in the Life (May 2017)

March 23, 2017 Stephen woke me at ten after five, much to my displeasure (ha!), so I could take him to work an hour later. I had my cup of coffee while reading a few things online. My lower back and abdomen were bothering me, it was sort of like menstrual cramps but seeing that… Continue reading Day in the Life (March 2017)

I basically killed our seedlings. Or, at least the cucumbers. After posting last week about the fuzzy mold I'd found on their peat (soil), I put them outside in the sunshine. Well, it was windy and they got stressed, and then it rained and HAILED that night! Had I brought them inside? No, because I didn't… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 03/14/17

Little Elizabeth doesn't stay in one size for long. One day, her clothes fit fine, the next I try to put her pants on but her chubby thighs won't let me and I know it's time to move up. So I buy the next size up and I think, "Ok, now I have enough clothes for her," and… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 2/19/17

Thoughts & Happenings 1/20/17

I'm trying something new. We're homeschooling for three weeks and then taking a week "off" so I can plan, reevaluate, and organize. Maggie (16) and Joshua (13) are helping with the little ones as much as possible while I work. I've been truly overwhelmed with the reality of homeschooling three kids (high school, junior high,… Continue reading Thoughts & Happenings 1/20/17
