I haven't forgotten about you, dear blog. Life has been a whirlwind, ok maybe a tornado in the night, through our house and lives these past 3 weeks. After having such a great start to school it was inevitable that something would happen to stop that and so we ended up sick with strep throat in the house, again! Now everyone is well, antibiotics are working well this time, kids are getting back into the swing of school and Mommy is still trying to figure out the schedule! Between home schooling the 3 older girls, grading papers, home preschool with the 2 little ones, soccer, household chores, cooking, orthodontist appointments, soccer games, several church activities, teaching music to 2 of the older girls, and trying to study for home fellowships......I have NO TIME left over for blogging! As soon as I get this schedule worked out I hope to be back in the saddle, but right now its too much. I will only be blogging once a week or less until I can come up with a better plan. SORRY! Just remember, I haven't forgotten about you dear blog. I just need some more time to figure out a better schedule.
In past 3 weeks, we have completed lots of good schoolwork, kids are doing GREAT! Makenna and Edwin got sick with strep throat for a 3rd time in 2 months. Magdalene got strep for the 2nd time in 2 months. Ellianna's steel immune system finally let down and she got strep throat with an ear infection. Mommy also came down with the sickness and had strep throat! Everyone healed from all the sickies!! Praise God! Our A/C unit went out AGAIN, but fall is just around the corner! Oh, and let's not forget that Makenna got her top braces!!! Very unexpected at this time, but she had to have it done now in order to make room for some important teeth. YES, I have 2 kids in braces!! Never thought I would see that day! All in all it has been a WHIRLWIND 3 weeks, but it's also been a BLESSED 3 weeks. I can see God's hand in everything, in every school day! He has given me strength to get up in the mornings, He has given us health again, He has given us a spirit of peace and for all those things I am so grateful, just busy. Busy for His kingdom!
