Well, it's been awhile since I last blogged! Life has been busy and full, and things are starting to feel more "normal" now with five children.
The camera on my phone is broken(thankyou, Max!), so I haven't got any recent pictures to share. Poor Luke is going to have a complex when he realizes that we only have newborn pictures of him! :) But he's doing very well, 2 months old, almost 14 pounds(yes he's a chunk!), with precious cheeks, and he's sleeping pretty well at night now(usually goes about 5 hours then eats then goes back to sleep.)
We finished our classical conversations group at the end of April, so I guess that means that Jack's officially in first grade, and Anna's officially going into Kindergarten*sniffle*! Crazy how time flies. I figure we'll continue to do some school during the summer especially when it gets ridiculously hot, but focus more on subjects that are especially interesting to them. And we read a lot every day, and spend lots of time outside, so I think they're doing exactly what they should be doing.:) I do have a plan for what we will be doing this fall that I'm pretty excited about, so I'll be sure and share that with you all soon.
I've been reading that Trim Healthy Mama book, and I've been trying to implement the plans they talk about for the last month. I was pretty discouraged when I went to the doctor for my post delivery visit, and I'd only lost 15 pounds(I had gained a little over 30 pounds when I was pregnant.) So far I've lost about 10-12 pounds following the principles they lay out in their book, so that's been encouraging.
I've also been reading through through Romans the past couple of weeks, and trying to go through it slowly so I can really process what it is I'm reading. And then I've also read Fit to Burst, and I have been reading Real Food for Mother and Baby. All books I'd highly recommend! :)
So that's what's been going on in the last few weeks(I would apologize for all the rambling, but that is what this blog is, afterall!)
How are the rest of you doing? Anyone else doing the Trim Healthy Mama plan?
