December update

Since my last blog entry there has been a new development at our house. Along with the last minute craziness of Christmas, hosting two big family dinners, and the usual ins and outs of our days, I got an early Christmas present that comes with strings attached... nausea, overwhelming urges to nap, and irritability. Yep, we will be expecting our sixth child next August.

This is the time of year that I normally evaluate our school year's progress. I usually refit our schedule and goals for the remainder of the year. So, this week I am looking not only towards the spring semester, but what we need to do this summer to be ready for a fall baby. Normally we would be ready to dive into school in August, but this year we will probably do summer school, and then take our summer break in August and September.

So, off I go to figure out how to squeeze a nice "Mom nap time" into the Spring and summer schedules. And in no time at all, we will all be enraptured by another little cherub-faced person around here. Can't have enough of those!


  1. I was just thinking about you and your baby today~ Congrats again!

    Oh I know what it was...my Aunt Chris lent me two books to read, "For the Children's Sake" and "For the Family's Sake" both by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay...I've made it to the 4th chapter on the family one, she refers to Charlotte Mason ALOT and made me think of you. :)

  2. Oh, those are some of my favorite books! Sounds like I would really like your aunt!

  3. You would...she's just finished homeschooling her 6 boys!
