Just sitting here while the kids do their school work. It been a busy week here. Busy not doing a whole lot. Just busy with five kids. Homeschooling. Five kids. You know the usual. Yesterday I sat in the dentist chair for three hours. Had a ton of work done...and you know me...don't split it into multiple appts, just get it done all at once. So that's what I did...I think the dentist was tired of me at the end. But it's all done...which I am very glad.
The weather has changed a bit. We had our air on a few days, which makes me sad. The past few days though we have had the windows wide open. The kids were actually complaining this morning that they were cold. And my answer, "put on some socks and a sweater!" They think they will stay warm in shorts and a tshirt.
Began juicing the past couple of weeks...which has been great...but I will save that for another day and another post. Other than that...and the normal mayhem that is here...we are all good. Just enjoying this good life. Be back soon.

This girl has been caught taking selfies on our cameras. We don't realize she has taken them until we look at our phones. She is so cute...and so preteen. As we are winding down the teen years with Bryn...we are in the homestretch, we see several more beckoning. Caleb will be 13 in one month and Esther is 11...and she is just bursting to be a teenager. She still has that softness of a little girl, but we keep on seeing glimmers in her life that are totally "TEEN." The entrance of selfies is a prime example. Love it. She has always been our quiet, keep to yourself girl...but all of a sudden she is becoming a social butterfly. Lots of friends...texting them on her tablet ( you should have seen my face when she sent me her first text)...small temper tantrums. It's in the mix..and Matt and I feel a little more prepared this time. We have some experience...we know what to expect...what to pay attention to and what to just ignore. By time we are done with this load of kid…
Who knew...16 years ago this journey would look like this? Sixteen years ago these kids weren't even alive...lol. Our oldest actually took the picture, as she was on her way to class at college. Now, truth be told...this picture took several times to take. No, we weren't waiting for any babies to smile...just for my youngest, yes my 10 year old, to get himself together. He still has a funky look on his face, but I will take it. Not everyone is happy all the time. And one day we will laugh at this picture and all of Judah's antics. These treasures have made this journey incredibly difficult, but it's been worth every step. I am so blessed to be their mom. And glad that I get to be their mom. Blessings on this next year!
