Hey, everyone. It’s been a good while since I’ve last checked in here. My life has changed in many ways and blogging about it just didn’t make it into my days. Thankfully, I finally have some time to get back into it, so here I am.
Since I’ve been gone my baby girl was born. She’s almost five months now, and she’s the joy of our lives. She’s a lovely little soul who always has a smile for you. I just love her, and her brothers do, too. They make it their business to make her laugh, wipe her little face when she has drooled everywhere, and calls me as soon as she so much as looks as if she’ll cry. They are truly her protectors, even from each other. Brothers, I tell ya.
The boys are enjoying the summer. The weather has been wonderful, so their days are filled with playing outside, being out and about with me and the baby, and hanging out in our newly renovated basement. They are such boys, you know? Horsing around all the time, and driving me bananas. Doing exactly what they should be doing at ages 7 and 3. They just finished up a summer soccer league last week, and had such a good time that they’ll be attending more soccer programs this fall. Basketball is coming this winter, too! Awww, they’re growing up.
As for me, I’ve been slowly adjusting to being a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) of three. Yes, I left my previous employer after having my daughter, and I’m so glad I did. The transition from two to three children, and becoming a SAHM, is a big one. Bigger than I thought it would be. I’ll be sharing more of that experience with you soon. All in all though, I’ve been well. Can’t complain. Well, I could, but I won’t. At least not right now. 🙂 Oh, and I finally can add urban gardener to my list of accomplishments. We planted a small garden in May and are starting to see the fruits (well, veggies) of our labor. I’m so amped about doing this gardening thing, y’all. When I saw our first little green beans growing I literally squealed. I’m already planning what we’ll be growing next year!
Last, but certainly not least, we began our third year of homeschooling yesterday. Yay! I almost can’t believe we’ve been at this for three years. Like parenting, homeschooling continues to be one of the most humbling, yet wonderful experiences of my life. You can check out our homeschool blog here.
So, that’s it in a nut shell. We’ve been enjoying our summer and my being home full-time. I will be posting on here each Wednesday, so please subscribe if you haven’t done so already. I will be sharing my experiences of motherhood, homemaking, minimalism, and more. Until next week!
