Sorry to have been away.....

Life has been very busy for us lately. Last week we had our 3 year anniversary and the following day was my daughter's 18th b-day...followed by her graduation party a couple days later....WHEW!!!!

Crazy that my daughter officially is a graduate. There was so much going on in the last months before she graduated. The graduation party put the finishing touches on her high school career. Now time to prepare for college.

My husband and I started back to Weight Watchers. The first week we lost 8 pounds together. We have SO much more to lose though.

My 9-year-old is just finishing up his homeschooling and looking forward to a nice break. It looks like we will be homeschooling again for 4th grade as well.

The baby is creeping quickly up to his first birthday...SAD how time flies....he has been a handful in the past couple months, between cutting 8 teeth at once, learning to crawl and then crawling to get into everything...but the good news is he is finally off his reflux medication WOOOOHOOOOO!!! Seems like he finally grew out of it. I honestly thought he would be one of the cases that did not grow out of it. He only occasionally seems to have what seems to be an upset stomach...but few and far between.

I have been focusing on how to be a homemaker..STILL. After losing my job in January, I have been really trying to figure out how everything fits...such a life change. I am NOT complaining, but it is just taking some adjustment...and now I have to learn how to be a Mom to a college student..UGH!

My husband is enjoying his new job and said the other day that he is really happy with life....I HAVE NEVER HEARD HIM SAY THAT!!! Praise God that he feels blessed ;) I always used to have to tell him he had to count his blessings before bed...cause he seemed to deal with being discontent quite a bit. He is an excellent provider, a great husband and a wonderful father...and I am the blessed one!

We are hosting my parents 40th wedding anniversary in a couple weeks, I am excited to celebrate such a wonderful event with all my family and have the house and yard filled with loving people and life....I am so thankful for parents who know God and who have submitted to him for 40 years!

Well, I am going to wrap it up for the night. I have Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cups baking...smell so good...don't know how my kids sleep with the wonderful smells. They are only 2 points per cup...YUM...cannot wait to have one in the morning. I think now I can get a little more regular with my blogging. Hope I have not lost many visitors ;)

See you all tomorrow!

Pin It!

Hi Andrea, Congratulation on your daughters graduation, and to your parents 40th anniversary too. looks like you have been busy and will be busy. I sympathize with the acid reflux our last granddaughter had such a hard time with it, I am so thankful that she out grew it.

Glad you're back. You've been just as busy as I have! That college step is a tough one.

My husband and I are on WW again, too. He begged and I finally decided to do it again. I'll have to check out your WW recipes.

Congratulations to your parents! Mine are working on 47 this year. So hard to believe.

Blessings to you.
