I have a blog? Really? Are you sure?
I guess I just forgot! LOL
However, I'm back & ready to share tons of new pics of our wonderful adventures. Not only that. I am going to be moving this blog. For many reasons..... Mainly, I don't want to be defined by my PCOS or my struggles w/ pregnancy. I want to rejoice in the 2 miracles we have!

Yes, I know that officially summer hasn't ended. However, for my house, it kinda is.
This is the last week of summer break. Next week, my baby boy heads to kindergarten.
I have had to most difficult time with this. I have cried & cried. More than any mother should. I mean, I've had 5 years to prepare for this day, right?
I've spent over a year researching schools, talking to parents, principals, & teachers. We've visited public, traditional, & private schools. We've been interviewed to see if we were 'good fits' for the school. Heard terms like 'reading ready' & 'cluster'. I've walked a many a hallway the past few months. I've filled out applications, been disappointed, angry, excited, & scared all at the same time.
My heart is breaking as I sit here writing this post & I'm not sure I really know why. I went to Kindergarten... you went to kindergarten. We survived!
I just want to yell "stop" & pull him back & pretend this was all a dream. I need one more year... But, he doesn't. He is 'reading ready'. He is kindergarten ready. He wants to ride a school bus. He wants to make new friends.
Maybe, I know some control is being lost in this new world we're entering. I'm not the one who has all the answers. I'm not the one who gets to make all the decisions. I can't fully protect him anymore.
I just pray that God protects his little heart & mind from things he isn't ready to learn & prepares him for the things he needs to learn.
I have said for years that I'd never home school. Now that idea doesn't seem so crazy to me.

It's another edition of 'Not Me Monday'! Has it been awhile? LOL
I haven't had intentions of exercising on more than one occasion & never making it. NOPE! I'm a gym rat, ya know!!
I didn't come home from the store, put the groceries away, & later discover I put the chicken in the cabinet instead of freezer. Nope, Not me! If this had happened.... my husband wouldn't have been the one to discover my oops moment!
I did not come home from church yesterday & use the baby's lack of sleep as an excuse to go cuddle & nap in the bed w/ her till AWANA. Nope, I was too busy cleaning up this place!
I do not look at new babies & get a bit jealous! Nope, I'm too busy enjoying my rapidly growing children to even notice other peoples babies! :)
I'm not secretly relived that AWANA is over till August! No.... not me!
I don't waste too much time on Facebook each day when I know I have tons of other stuff to do. See, I only get on Facebook as time permits & if all my other chores are done!
I guess that's all for now.... really it isn't but I'm NOT too tired to think of all my other things I need to confess this week! :)
March 9, we gave Eliza her 1st bites of food. We started her off on some Gerber rice cereal.
She was skeptical in the beginning, but became excited as time went on. Now she's eating baby cereal twice a day w/ a fruit or veggie at each feeding. She loves her food!
