Well I am beyond happy to report that we survived another March without sickness in our family. Jason did have a cold and a sinus infection, but atleast but the kids never got sick and NO ONE had the tummy bug!! Our God is so good and he keeps blessing me more then I could ever deserve. I am so thankful!
So now that we are almost to mid April, Spring has sprung and I am very optimistic that it is going to be a beautiful season with the anticipation of the warm summer that is coming! I love this time of year, there is so much hope!
I have been excited working on Aimlee with school lately. She is learning so much and almost always likes to do school. This week we used Easter eggs as her addition manipulatives. I have been using crafting as a good incentive to get her “hard” math or language “works” done. Some days she gets both math and language done- but usually just one or the other for now- she is only 4- so I try to not push her too hard, but rather encourage her. I have been starting to research homeschool Kindergarten programs- preparing for the Fall- can’t believe she will be in Kindergarten!!!!
Even has suddenly decided he is TWO and wants to be a part of the “Terrible Two” group of toddlers. He has always been such a sweet boy, and still is- BUT now he likes to throw full blown temper tantrums. Usually it’s about wanting a certain shirt or color cup- or a toy at the store or not wanting to get buckled in the car. Some days I do not even know what the problem is. Jason says he does not thrown tantrums for him- apparently he just saves those for me. All I know is there is a lot of tears and screaming and then suddenly about 10 minutes later he is perfectly fine. I’m hoping this is a quick phase! He is still so cute though- even when he is screaming. It is hard not to laugh sometimes- or cry too!
I have been so busy working 2 jobs for about 2 months now. Hence the infrequent posts. Most weeks I work 6 days and a little over 30 hours. I don’t really want to work 2 jobs-(who does ?!) but it is what we need to do for now. I have been working early, early in the morning and on evenings and weekends- I am super thankful that I get to spend the weekdays with the kids and do school and play! I have been super tired though and LOVE getting a day off!
I am super disappointed and discouraged about my weight and motivation the past few months. I wanted to lose 10 pounds a month ago and still am only 0-2 pounds depending on the day. I feel like I am eating healthy and always hungry- which to me would mean I should be losing a little- ugh! I really need to start working out consistently. I started a weekly dance class so hopefully that will help motivate me. Some days I just give up on dieting and think “I don’t care because I am frustrated”. I am hoping to see some results or motivation soon!
Jason has been gaming quite a bit lately. Watching him play is so funny to me. He gets so passionate and loud- and if you know him- that is not usually what he is like at all. He is really good at gaming though! I try to be an understanding wife and let him play without complaining too much- since that is what he likes to do for fun! I do miss talking to him or anything on the days/weeks that he plays non-stop while he is at home.
Well, I am so excited for the Spring weather and fun holidays and activities to come! I am so grateful for the blessings of God and the hope of each day! YAY SPRING!!!!
