Back From My Break!

Wow...has it really been that long since I last posted? Well, I want to thank everyone for their emails of concern! But I am happy to say that I'm back and feeling better than ever! It's been quite a busy last couple of months!!

Our household has been buzzing with homeschool, co-op, field trips, and the fabulous news of a new baby joining our family in May!! That's right...baby #6 is happily growing! With that, I'll add that I've had the most horrible morning sickness ever. Which has kept me from doing what I normally do around the house (blogging being one of those things). To bed at 8pm for me, with an afternoon nap thrown in. That was giving me minimal time to do anything else!

But my morning sickness has improved so much since I've headed into my second trimester! I'm only at 13.5 weeks, and it's exciting to see that I'm already showing. News of our little peanut has made everyone quite excited!!

So of course, morning sickness will never stop a homeschooling mom from doing lessons or toting the kids around to fun things. We've kept busy with everything from trips to the pumpkin patch, to making fall crafts, and even hosting our annual Halloween party!! Check it out! And I plan on fully coming back to the blogosphere to share all our adventures!


We created a fun coffee filter, fall tree in our school room window. Looks lovely with the light coming in!! **This craft idea was from the Frugal Family Fun Blog. You can see that post here.**



We took a field trip to our town's fire department with lots of our friends!



A trip to the pumpkin patch with the kids included a ride on a little cow train. Here I am with the kids waiting our turn.



Our 7th Annual Halloween Party was a blast!!

These past couple of months have been fun, busy, but most of very difficult with all that a first trimester pregnancy brings. But hooray for our growing family!! We are blessed so abundantly!
