This week is going by sort of slow. We are reviewing as far as school is going. I have the pleasure of teaching 3 children this year...though I am not going to be working all that hard with Kevin. He is still a little guy. But he is very eager to learn. I love when he says "teach me to count, Mama". It warms my heart. I could just eat him up...though as dirty as he gets, he wouldn't taste very good, lol.
Always a ham for the camera!
And because I have nothing else to write, I give you pictures!!!
This week has went by fast! On Tuesday, we took Shannon for a check up...those used to be frustrating when we used a pediatrician, but now that we use a family Dr. (whom we love, btw), it's a breeze. So glad that we found someone that we like, who isn't going to turn around and leave the practice or the area. That has happened alot with the kids' pediatric office. The new Dr. is great!!!
Shannon also turned 12 weeks today! She is getting so big!!! She is trying to sit up now...so, so cute!
We also took some time to visit our local wildlife area that has finally reopened..YAY!! We didn't see many alligators, but here is what we saw:
The kids, especially Jacob, are very happy that the refuge has opened back up. The hiking trails appear to still be closed, so that was a bummer. But, we still had some fun!
We have a few projects around the house that need to be worked on this weekend....hoping that the weather will cool off...I shouldn't hold my breath,lol. And the usual errands, like grocery shopping, need to be done. I am thinking of going ahead and tackling that this afternoon.
I'm back! The month of July is always a busy month for us..2 of our children have birthdays, Kevin and Rhiannon. Kevin turned 3 and Rhiannon is the ripe old age of 7! They are growing up way too fast.
They were fighting over the cake and some of the side came off.... We broke tradition and went with a store bought cake instead of homemade...I think they were a little too excited about that!!!
Rhiannon wanted cupcakes, so we didn't do the candle in those..so no pic for that.
Jacob is also growing like a weed...I keep having to buy this kid jeans and shoes every two months!!! Kinda scary....
And Ms. Shannon is growing just about as fast as her biggest brother! But, we all know this is what they do...so bittersweet.
We are finishing up school for the current year. I am still trying to decide whether or not to stay with our current curriculum. I like it, it is just time consuming and I am not sure whether or not it is going to work out with the kids being older and having a newborn. We shall see.
As far as the big news about the job opportunity, we are staying put for the moment. That brings both joy and sadness. We are sad that we have to wait a little while longer before we can move, but happy to be able to stay around family a little longer.
