Our Celebrations...

This is us (minus me taking the picture) last night as we celebrated St. Patrick's Day. My mother's side of the family is all Irish, so we take some time to celebrate. There was lots of corned beef and cabbage and potatoes. We decorated with some Irish four leaf clovers and washed everything down with strawberry shortcake. It was a lovely night. Bryn had a friend over and my mom joined us. Love that moments like these only take a little time, barely any extra money but it leaves great memories for my kids. It was a good night for all.

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Top of the Morning to you!!! LOL Happy St. Patrick's Day. A day to remember a man who wasn't even Irish...lol, but most believe that he was. And it's Monday...the dreaded day of the week. I am thankful for this week because this is the last week before Spring Break. Which by this time of the year I am so ready for a break. Summer is right around the corner and I am ready for a break. The weather has been cold on some days but warm on others. Yesterday we hit 81 degrees and it felt warm. An inkling of what is to come.
So, what else is going on? Not much really. I feel kind of boring. We are just trucking along with school work and household stuff. We are having a garage sale this weekend. I am getting everything ready for that. Ready to clean things out of the house and feel light and airy again.
I hit a spot yesterday of feeling totally frustrated with not running. I am on a 6 week lock down from my doctor...since my surgery...to not run. It was good in the beginning because I felt a little burned out from my 1/2 marathon training. But now I feel a bit crazy in the head, lol. I am needing to burn off some energy. I walked 3.1 miles yesterday which felt really good. I like my legs walking and moving and the sweat felt good too! But, I still have 2 more weeks until I can run again. Pray for me!
Hope you have a fantastic day...love someone and pinch anyone who is not wearing green :)

Science Kids

Sorry for my absence again. I was having problems with my computer and being able to access my pictures from my email. I think I have it sorted now, but we will see. The month of March is already whizzing by...can you believe it? Time keeps on going so fast.
This is the kids yesterday. We are studying flying creatures this year in science and we have been studying insects. One of the science projects was to look for eggs on various leaves and such outside. So, they found their magnifying glass and were searching for eggs. They think they found some eggs (I am no so sure, but I love their effort)...so they placed them in a glass jar with air holes. We shall see.
Anyway, I just love when my kids take the initiative and jump out of the box when it comes to school. They didn't have to do this, but they wanted to. I am so pleased with their ability to get things done and make school a priority. I have such great kids!!!

Out for Surgery

Just so you know I haven't disappeared lately. I had surgery this past week so I have been out recovering and trying to get well. I am thankful to the Lord that I am feeling so much better and each day I get stronger. My husband has been amazing in his care of me and the kids. So, I will be back next week. Stronger than ever.

Saturday Happenings

Happy Saturday to you!!!! It has been slow around the blog this week, but busy busy at my home here in Florida. The week before was one of the busiest I have ever seen. My mom had hip surgery on Wednesday and both of my moms that I was working with as their doula delivered two days apart from each other. Lack of sleep is not my favorite and I was struggling with that. I was at the hospital every day that week between the two moms and my own mother...lol.
Now things are slowing down. But this week I went out twice to help both of my new mommies with their new babies. And of course I have the two little ones that I watch during the week and all of my own kids. We started working with the civil war for school which is very exciting. The kids are enjoying the work already.
Its been raining a lot around here. I don't think we have seen the sun in days. Right now I can hear the rain coming down...and the temps are cool, at a nice 61 degrees. I love the temperatures but wish the rain would stop now. So, sorry for the pause...life took over for the week. Will be back...
