Hi everyone! I've missed you all. These last few weeks have basically been a time of curling into a little ball and enjoying it! We've been attempting to shrink life a little.
It never ceases to amaze me how one tiny little line can change the whole world. I'm a mom of FIVE!!! I haven't been able to wipe the smile off of my face ever since. Baby should arrive sometime in June.. No due date yet!
Morning sickness moved in quite comfortably and really made itself at home. I really don't have much to complain about because it decided to leave after only about four short weeks. It still stops by for a visit now and then, but I try to just be thankful for the reminder of my little raspberry sized baby (it was only a poppy seed when we first found out!!!) that is growing snugly inside of me.
Like I said, life has really been put on slow-mo. We did mange (with the help of aunties) to switch out all of the summer clothes for the fall/winter clothes. We also set out to make our first batch of homemade taffy which ended in dismal failure. Any fool proof recipes? Other than that, we've been laying low. No school. No 6:00 mornings. Never fear though! Next week the schedule is returning and I will FINALLY finish the lay out of our day (once we are actually doing it again!).
The one thing that we have been involved in has been the Operation Christmas Child shoe box giveaway. This is such a wonderful ministry. Our small little church every years comes together to send out hundreds of "shoe boxes" to add to millions that are sent to needy children around the world.
