Welcoming Myself Back

It has been over three months since I last wrote on this blog. Things have happened. Lives have changed. My own mentality has been pulled through a ringer and I came out on the other end. 

So, what's up?

  • Well, first, we are expecting another baby!  We are due with a little girl on Christmas Day. The family is thrilled and we are getting used to the idea of having five kids.
  • School has started up again. We just started week four of RCHistory today. We are all enjoying the change of curriculum and the less stress I attempted to plan for this school year. It is about enjoying learning this year and getting used to a new family member.
  • I am in a happy space right now. I struggled so hard at the beginning of the year with my heart and with my health. Right now I am feeling fantastic. Getting pregnant fixed my hormone levels and mentally I am in a safe place. I can handle my life right now, and that is a great feeling.

So, what is going on with the blog?

I took a much needed break over this summer. I plan on updating again now that our school year is back in session. It may not be every week, but I will update as my kids write and do projects. I plan on taking school pictures shortly, so I will share as we do things. The blog is lower key these days because it had been stressful last year trying to keep up with all the reviews. Now that I am no longer doing reviews, my blog is a place of respite an decompression for myself so I will only write here when I want to.

Thanks for sticking around and I'll write again soon. Life always has interesting moments that I love to share!

May's Word: Joy

This year I have gone from Trust, Surrender, Hope, and then Replenish. Now, as my life makes some more twists and turns, I have decided to focus on Joy.

Son Goku

Goken is a character I made up for Dragonball Super. Although he is not in the comics or tv show, I thought he was pretty awesome.

You are a Lost Sheep

by: Kaelyn
The wonderful shepherd, who was tending and counting his sheep, noticed he had lost one of his sheep. He cried, “Oh no!” He went looking for his sheep because he loves all of his sheep. While that was happening a storm hurried in. He persisted in the storm, eventually finding his sheep. He was very happy that he found his sheep. God will help you if you are lost.
