The great return!

Ok, so I have been gone for quite a long time and I really want to get my blog back up and moving. Things have been quite crazy around here for quite awhile now and are finally starting to get back to some sort of normalcy.

First, I’m pretty sure I talked about the 3 little girls that we had. Well sadly, last week we had to say good-bye to our oldest. She just had more troubles than we could help with her. We hung in as long as we could (almost 10 months), but just felt in the end it was in everyone’s best interest (even hers) to request a change of placement. It was such a battle in my mind to make that decision! Things are a lot calmer in our home now and I’m a lot calmer so it really is a decision I’m at peace with.

So at this point, we are down to 2, plus Carter. I have 2 open spots and am really excited to get more kids in here soon!! We are doing respite next weekend as well so that will be fun. We havn’t done respite since our current placements arrived.

Well, I plan to return to regular posting starting now and I am just so excited to be back!

Well I’ve been MIA from the blogging world for quite some time. I think I just needed a break to get things in my life back in order. After all the illness and such I was feeling a little in the dumps because my house was a mess and I was a mess. So I’m now back on track and ready to get back involved.

We still have the girls and actually are working on getting a 4th placement. We are going vehicle shopping this weekend and we are looking to get a dreaded mini-van. Hopefully all goes well. We also want to go down to 1 vehicle. I just don’t go anywhere during the day when Mike is at work. He gets home around 2 so I just schedule all of our appointments after that. Anyways, my point in all this is if we get a mini-van we will be able to hold 1 more child. I really want one more, but being that we want to go to one vehicle, we need to be able to fit all of us in one car. I’m not too excited about driving a mini-van (it’s my own prejudice), but it will make traveling a million times easier. Right now I can get our kids in the car, but nothing else…not even our double stroller.

Well, that’s it for now. I just wanted to let my many faithful readers, that I am back!

Love you all!!

Thinking of making a switch

to Blogger. I used it once before, but switched to WordPress…why I’m not sure, but after seeing that nearly all of my favorite blogs are part of blogger, I’m wondering if there’s not something I’m missing. I know there are a lot of widgets and stuff I can add that I aren’t compatible with WordPress…I think that’s one reason why.

So to all of my three many faithful readers, can you help me decide. What do you like/dislike about the blogging platform that you use.

Do you think the switch would be worth it since I’d have to go to the work of changing all my links, etc.?? Would you take the time on your blogs to update to my new address?

Homeschooling Blog

Just thought I would share with all of you that I have started a blog for Carter to document our progress in Homeschooling. It’s pretty basic, but I wanted something to document some of his projects and such. If you’d care to visit you are welcome!

I came across this site last week and have been meaning to post about it. C Jane is written by the sister of Stephanie Nielson.

This family’s story has really touched me and I hope that you will visit not only Courtney’s (Stephanie’s sister) site, but that you’ll also visit their sister sites…
