Okay, so I know I have been gone from blog land lately, but lots of things have been going on around here!! Of course the big news..................
All kids have started school!!!!!!!! Woo-Hoo!!!!!!!!!!
Don't get me wrong, I loved home schooling them, and do miss having them around during the day, but I am totally enjoying my time. This is the first time in nearly 13 years that I don't have kids with me. I have been able to do the grocery shopping- in peace. Go downtown and stroll the shops- in peace. Clean the house and keep it clean- for hours. Have lunch with my girlfriends- in peace.
Then, I am refreshed and ready to hear all about their days and have some great snuggle time in the afternoons!! I know it all sounds a little selfish, but it was time for a change around here, and we are all loving it!!!
I hope to get some pictures of the darlings posted soon. My home laptop has been sick, and I just got the call that the hard drive is shot. Which is the other reason for not blogging- no computer. I only have access to one when Big Daddy brings his home from work. For those of you who know me, this is a huge inconvenience as I do EVERYTHING online. I am also, however quite frugal, so I won't be rushing out to buy another. I will deal with waiting until my dear husband comes home to do whatever work needs done. Unfortunately, by the time I get my work done, I am just flat out too tired to blog. Sorry.
Otherwise, we are still here and as busy as ever. T is in football, J starts fall baseball tomorrow night, and A starts volleyball Tuesday night. I get exhausted just thinking about it, but it will all work- somehow.
Not sure if I have mentioned it, but after several years in competitive gymnastics, A has decided to quit. Big change for our family, but we have come to appreciate having more time and money for our family each week!
L is also no longer doing gymnastics, but this was a really smart move now that school has started. She can hardly function after a long day at school- I can't imagine 2 hours of gymnastics as well.
Enough babbling. I am sure to be back with lots more updates. I am getting ready to redecorate some rooms of our house. I can't wait to share with you!
