growing up good

mothering, homeschooling, and me

So, I’ve been quiet on here for awhile now. I actually just logged into my dashboard for the first time in ages. My last post was August of last year! Crikey!

Well, a couple weeks after my last post, we found out about this:



And that was followed by this, several months later:


In between my last post and today, I’ve gestated a child, given birth, survived the longest, coldest winter Chicagoland has seen in decades, watched my husband graduate with his master’s, homeschooled a first grader, a preschooler and just chased my 2 year old around.  I’ve taught at my co-op, became a Scout mom, traveled to Ohio, Minnesota and Michigan, and prepped 55 meals for my freezer.  Some moms can do all that AND keep a clean, spotless home AND keep up a blog, documenting all that glory. I am not one of those moms.

I am, however, excited to be the mom of 4.

My youngest is now 8 weeks old, and I’m starting to feel like I’m getting my “normal” back. Which means hopefully, I’ll keep this updated more. Hopefully!
