March Family Update {Thoughts From Me}

Wow, life has been so busy lately!  I'm already in my second trimester.  My babies have all had birthdays, except my littlest and hers is next month.  I've got reviews to do out my wazoo.  But you know what.  It is all worth it to me.

In the past there were days when I had nothing to do.  The kids and I would both end up bored wishing for somewhere to go.  Now we have a guarantee that every Tuesday we will have therapy for both girls.  They really enjoy that time.  And usually right after we go by our library to find fun books to read for the week.  Sometimes we go every two weeks just because we can't manage to read them fast enough!!

And weekends that aren't raining bring loads of outdoor fun, like our recent zoo trip and our upcoming beach visit.  Weekends that are raining bring spring cleaning and house organization that is much needed too!!  Though I must admit that is everyone's least favorite part of the week.

In school, we are learning about America's beginnings, particularly in relation to Georgetown where we now live.  There is so much history to be found here.  It's really a never-ending school day with all the lessons we can find in this area.

We also have two desktop computers now for Winston and Emmalee to do schoolwork and have a little fun too.  One for girls, one for boys.  It will be nice to have them get on with only a little arguing!  Plus they can both work on school programs at the same time.  Bonus for me!!

I have some upcoming reviews and giveaways.  A few movies and books.  I'm really behind in reading and reviewing them though.  Pregnancy has left me tired and nauseous, not wanting to do a lot of anything.  But I'm trying to do my best to stay on top of everything I  need to do!

My little bean is now 13 weeks.  Second trimester!  I'm so thrilled.  I feel the baby kick, though no one else can.  Usually late at night.  Nausea is getting a tiny bit better but some days are much worse than others.  I'm still working on choosing a name and figure that will come after we find out if it's a boy or girl - at the end of the month or sometime in April.  Right now we are just all excited to be expecting another sweet angel to add to our beautiful family.

I have a few things I've been wanting to write about but nothing I have managed to get written here.  I just have too much keeping me busy.  Hopefully, I can get them out soon though.  I know I'm being directed to.

So that's pretty much it.  This is our busy, hectic life right now.  The kids and I are trudging along somewhat happily and very much enjoying the breaks when we get them - like today where we are just lounging around.

Hope you are all finding the busy-ness of life worth the journey as we are!
