I've been trying...but life is just so nutty. I feel like I forget what to blog about immediately after it happens! Lots to catch up on...so, here's a start....
We ended our summer with a few camping trips. One at the end of August with our awesome friends the Fulks and the Franklins. It was H.O.T. and we slept (all six of us) in a tent for the first time. It was interesting and fun. We definately plan to be a camping family. I would LOVE and RV (a pop-up camper is much more likely, at this point) :).
We then went camping with Joe's family...we staying a really (for a rustic) nice cabin. The kids had a blast playing with their cousins...and we enjoyed it. It was less H.O.T, but lots more rainy. I definately prefer a cabin over a tent. Shocking, I know.
Joe and I celebrated our TENTH wedding anniversary the last day of August. I am so thankful for 10 years...and cannot believe how life has changed for us. I asked him if 10 years and 4 kids, meant 10 more years and 4 more kids. He quickly shot that idea down. Again, shocking.
I was selected for jury duty the day after Labor Day. I have ALWAYS wanted to be on a jury. ALWAYS, that is, before I had FOUR kids whom I planned to begin homeschooling that week..so, alas, our plans changed. Joe ended up having to take them to their first day of our new co-op (Day 1 of said trial) and being home with them the rest of the week (save one day that my BFF helped out :)). The trial lasted 4 days, putting our school plans on hold until the following week. So, we are now only on our 7th "official" day of school, which I am trying not to stress about, but I am, cuz, that's me.
I L.O.V.E. homeschooling and having my kids with me all day. Yes, they make me nutso, NO, I am not a patient person and NO it is NOT easy, but worth it. 100 and a 1,000,000%.
That's all for now.
