So, life is busy. No change there!
I think back to our time fostering, we always had such drama. There were huge changes day to day. We are still busy, but it’s a calm busy–like the constant waves of the ocean, always in motion, but rhythmic. It’s much more manageable than the craziness & uncertainty of foster care.
In our normal now, I am loving my job. I watch a little dude, A, three days a week. He’s 7 months old and just an adorable little chunk. He’s not crawling yet–which I am thankful for. I don’t have any races planned, but am still running. I have not been diligent (to say the very least) with my diet the last couple months & now my jeans are snug. So, as of yesterday, I am back on medifast.
Dan is a lady killer… We are amused and a little scared when we see the love notes that come home. And I am already avoiding answering the phone–it’s never for me & usually a girl! In school, he just did a project about Nevada & now he’s learning the state capitals.
David, oh my sweet David, where are you? He has been quite a little handful this week! He reminds me of me–a little sarcastic. What doesn’t remind me of me is his video game obsession–that’s 100% B!
Vin is also quite the gamer. But, that’s not his only skill. This quarter he got straight A’s!!! In school, if he gets 100% on his spelling pre-test, he doesn’t have spelling homework that night & gets to skip the test. He does that a lot. I imagine in a year or two his spelling skills will surpass mine. He is sporting a
“unique” smile these days–one of his front teeth is dangling by a thread (gross!).
Bethy also as quite the smile. She has already Iost 8 teeth & the adult teeth are coming in quickly. She has been doing winter guard and has really enjoyed it. Her last show was yesterday & she is ready to sign up again–although, we will skip the summer. She has been in trouble a bit at school. I know it’s hard to believe, but my daughter is chatty.
And my husband, we just celebrated 10 years of marriage This past 6 months or so have been a challenge for B though, not as far as our marriage, but just in life. His dad passed so very quickly. It still feels unreal to me. It has been so hard to just watch his grieving process. But, he is doing just that. He’s processing and progressing & I know that it will never be o.k., but I do see parts of my husband coming back that have been missing.
We also have just plain been missing each other, too! March is a very busy month for him–that’s why I took the kids solo to Vegas. But, we made it! We are back to our normal busy
I think those are the high points.
