What's new

Not alot going on here.  We have 3 down with a cold right now (had to cancel our trip South....boohoo) so we wait until it passes through the rest of the family before going to visit Nana and Grandpa :)

School is going okay.  We are managing to get work done although I'm still struggling with a routine at the moment.  In the next month or so, I'm sure it will work itself out better.  

The bird feeder is busy place lately!  I absolutely love how the kids find such pleasure in it!!  They are learning to appreciate God's creation and find the beauty in His handiwork.  I encourage all mom's and dad's to get a bird feeder for their kids.  It is such a great learning tool as well.  Our 2 year old will run to me saying  "Car-nal...Car-nal!!"  Our oldest has spotted a few hummingbirds but I have yet to see them.  All the kids can identify most of the birds that come to the feeder. Right now our list includes:   Cardinal, Titmouse, Wren, Brown headed cowbird, Indigo Bunting, Woodpecker, Gold and Purple finches and Robins(although we haven't seen any of either of these lately), Chickadees, and most recently a Bluejay. 

We've been going for our evening walks now as a family again.  I received a MOBY wrap as a gift and am getting good use of it!  I tuck our little girl in there so comfy and she sleeps the entire walk.  

Other than that, we wish all the mommies out there a very Blessed Mother's Day!


  1. Glad to hear you're having so much fun with the birds. Would love to see them all again.
    Sorry to hear about the colds,I know how much you were looking forward to going south and for Nana and Grandpa especially to see the baby. Hope it won't be long before you're able to make it down.
    I hope you get that routine down soon,to manage baby,school etc. Wonderful that you are getting out for walks in the evening.
    I wish you too sweetheart,a very happy "Mother's Day". I love you so much and am very blessed to have you as my daughter.

  2. Hope everyone is feeling much better by now. We're sorry it didn't work out for you coming down last weekend but sure looking forward when you can make it down! Glad you all have been going on the walks. That is always so nice to be able to.

    Love and hugs to you all
