There's been more to our life lately other than birthdays. Despite what our blog says. (or lack of blog)
We have a stomach bug (knock on wood- a few of us have missed out on it. so far). It was short lived when it struck each kid, thankfully, but it still took its toll on everyone: the kids, mom and the house.
Carolyn lost tooth #5. (Benji has lost 4. It has led to a competition of sorts.)
We (my husband and me) enjoyed a short-sweet weekend away. It was a mixture of business and pleasure. We ended up staying at the same motel as we did on our honeymoon. Kinda special. Reminiscing, since June will be 10 years for us.
Homeschooling carries on. It's rewarding to see progress and improvements as we look back on the year.
It's been an unbelievable mild winter. Especially nice for us, since we spent the majority of the past 2 in sunny, mostly warm TN. We've ended up with enough snow to keep the yard mostly white. This past week we got hit with a winter storm. Our area got a mixture: snow, rain, freezing rain, ice- made for a slippery mess. Just north of us got 12". Further north has even more. It's the beginning of March, but the calendar means nothing to the weather in our neck of the woods.
I do have a funny video of Katie.. and some pics of the kids to share. But my spare time is up for now.. next time!
