“Yook at my Yips Mommy!”

"Yook at my yips mommy!"

Life is busy, but we are loving it. Here’s a few things I’ve been doing…

-Potty training Guenna, she’s doing pretty good but still not quite there.
-Cait went potty in the potty chair twice yesterday!
-Bought homeschool curriculum for the boys, started them on Phonics, Mathematics, and Drawing
-Connor is losing his beautiful hair but his smile makes up for it, he is sooo cute!
-Eamon is really starting to get better at writing and coloring!
-Cait is talking up a storm, she is such a ham! Now that she is almost two and such a big girl she is starting to obey much quicker now. Love that sweet girl and her precious piggy tails!
-Chris is still loving his job! We love coffee :)
-I am teaching myself how to paint, got some fun painting supplies and a book, it’s therapeutic!
-Did I mention we are buying a house? Um, yeah, that has taken up a bunch of my/our time these past several weeks! It’s going to go through, looks like the first couple days of March :)
-We are contemplating buying a very cheap trailer and camping on the property for part of the time while we fix up the house, it would be a fun adventure!
-We are still enjoying going to our homeschool co-op when we can, the big kids are learning to sew, Spanish and cooking, the little kids are studying the body, and cooking-so much fun!
-We have finally started homeschooling the boys, and they are really enjoying this structure, especially when life has been so crazy lately!
-Enjoying having a baby while we are in the middle of all this madness, he helps us all stop and smell the roses. What a joy Connor has been during the stressful times, I look down and him and even if I am crying he is smiling so big at me. How can I not smile back? I love that boy!
-We are all learning to adjust, learning to become more disciplined, learning to love more, be more patient, put our brother or sister first, and to laugh more. It’s a good and challenging season.

Well, I wasn’t going to blog tonight because I am so tired! But I saw this picture of Cait and her “yips” and I had to post it. She is such a cute girl, we love her :) Goodnight. And thanks to all my friends who’ve wondered “where in the world is Jenni, and what is she up to?” I’ve missed you too! But life is good!

    Hi Sis! So good to read your comments tonight. I keep checking, but nothing new. I know you are incredibly busy. Look at me, I only have one and I don’t take the time to blog. You’ve got 5 now and you normally blog WAY more than I ever do. So, I haven’t been criticizing you in my heart for not blogging. ;o)
    Love you and really look forward to seeing you guys in a few weeks. Give me a call when you get the chance. I need to share some new details with you regarding the trip!
    Talk to you soon!
    Love,
    Tam
