This is one of my favorite baby photos ever. This is David, he is almost two now. He is my last baby(our plan, but you know how that works) and greatest frowner. I wish I could pick that little baby up and kiss his chunky cheeks and wipe those milk bubbles away. Mmm, babies are yummy!
I realized the other day that I've been teaching our homeschool for almost 14 years and I have at least 14 years to go! I didn't realize when we started this journey that I would make a career out of it! Who knew that we would have 8 children.
I'm surprised that I'm not more annoyed by the thief who stole my hubby's laptop. My husband is taking college classes online so that is why he has the laptop. Thankfully, he is on the last few weeks of his last class. Well, then he has to CLEP out of a few more so he'll probably need to use the computer to study. That means I'll have to SHARE "my" computer. This could get interesting.
We have a second fridge to store our food since we are a family of 10 and one fridge isn't enough. Well, guess what, the second fridge decided to die today. Isn't that typical? The good news is that the thing is from the 80s at the earliest so our electric bill should go down. The bad news is that we will have to buy another fridge. The more frugal we try to be the more things come up to block us from that path! I'm not complaining. I know way worse things could have happened.
I will say that I am happy I have been reading a book for review this week as it has helped me to stay focused on what is most important. It is "Captured by Grace". I am really enjoying this book and learning a lot. I will be sharing a review soon.
My husband has to work at his second job this weekend so I'm going to try to get a baby quilt sewn for the next door neighbor's new baby girl. I think I'm going to go crazy with lots of pink, purple, and soft colors. I'll show you pics if I get it finished. It will probably just be simple squares and I will tie it instead of quilting. I don't know how to machine quilt and quilting by hand takes too long so I always tie baby quilts.
