A long overdue update about… everything! :)

Hey there internet world!

 

It has been way to long! One of the main fears I had when starting this blog is that life would just get busy and I wouldn’t be able to keep up! πŸ™ But, I’m still here!

 

We are 8 weeks pregnant as I type this, and Sickness and exhaustion is a daily battle at this point! My headaches have been pretty bad, but this week seems to be a little break from them! It has been hard to even think about looking at my computer screen and was a main reason why I haven’t posted!

So, let’s see what’s happened….

We made it to the beach! And even tho it was over cast, we had a great family day! The boys loved digging in the sand!

I loved our new shade tent we bought on Amazon!

 

We had VBS last week and the boys had a great time. I got to serve in the infant nursery with my Mom all week. and we enjoyed loving on the babes! πŸ™‚

Then Friday kicked off the Valley Home Educators convention. This was my first year attending and I can see why so many home school families put it in their schedule every year. The first day, Though a little overwhelming was so encouraging! I sat in a couple of seminars about the charlotte Mason method of teaching. I’m pretty sure it confirmed that should be the direction we head for William. It allows for a lot of creative reading and exploring the world around us as we learn!

Here are some resources if you are interested in learning more:

Big news for our family!

Oh Boy here we go! We have had some big news for our little family!

Baby number 3 is on the way! I am still a little shocked when I say things like that! Who am I?? hahaha A Mom of three?!

We are very very excited! And feel just so very blessed that the Lord would bless us again! Every baby is a precious gift!
We look forward to adding this little one to the pack! πŸ™‚

Until then, we figure out how to get through pregnancy while still raising two very active boys! This Momma is pretty tired! Thankfully I haven’t been to sick yet, though as I type today is my worse nausea yet… hopefully it doesn’t stick around this time around!

It’s funny how everyone knows we are of course hoping for a little girl this time around.. it goes without saying since we have two wonderful boys, we wouldn’t mind mixing it up. What I have started saying is ” Hope for a girl, overwhelmingly love a boy anyways” πŸ™‚ We shall see! No matter what this is exciting stuff! πŸ™‚

We are also preparing for our first official year of Home Schooling. William will start Kindergarten in September. I’m doing as much research as I can about curriculums and styles. And I have to admit I’m getting pretty excited about it! I’ll be attending the Valley Home Educators convention next week. and I’m so excited to be overwhelmed with resources and encouragement!

Maybe I can write a follow-up post on what I learn and what we ultimately decide to do for our first year! Our William loves to learn and I dont’ think he will be hard to teach. I’m planning on making it as fun for both of us as I can, with lots of hands on activities and adventures… chances to move around instead of just sit which is one of the main reasons Home School seems like the best option for us! We can teach him how to sit still for the times it’s required but he doesn’t have to sit for hours in the same chair doing the same things!

We shall see how it all goes!
