Our days have taken on a totally different rhythm. Soccer sign ups have been completed and I can not wait to find out what team Austin is on! This is his first ever team sport experience! Sunday school is going great and Austin has made two friends in his class.
Homeschooling is still our plan as of now. Private school has always been my favorite choice, but I just don't see us being able to afford it right now. I trust in the Lord and know there is a season for all things, and now is the season of home school. I will say though, that my excitement has been replaced with a bit of anxiety over it all. I want him to have the best education, and sometimes I am prone to second guess myself. We will have a curriculum to help though, and I know we can do it!
EJ is doing great as well. He finally kicked this last bug and I hope we can enjoy a summer with out any more illness. He is walking everywhere and starting to try to run a bit. He talks all the time. Seriously. He is one vocal little one. He is definitely more strong willed than Austin ever was. He still wakes 3-5 times a night but we co sleep (still) so I am only up usually for a few minutes each time. He loves all his toys, and especially Austin's swords. He loves to play sword fights! His all time favorite thing though right now is reading. He will sit with you and go through 20 books. His favorites are the touch and feel although he does love "Mommy calls me monkey pants" as well. We go the library each week and always get new books for the kids.
He has two new teeth and I couldn't be more thankful for them finally breaking through. His fourth bottom tooth, and one of his molars. I know the other molars are right behind, but I am enjoying a little break from teething madness.
So for me, summer has taken on a different feel already, and I apologize for being MIA. I am working a bit from home now on top of everything else I have going on, and I am one busy Mama! Truth is I feel inadequate most days because I can't do it all. I can't raise my two boys, keep a clean home, work, and blog all perfectly at the same time. I don't know how you all do it! So blogging has taken a bit of a back burner. I will try to post more pictures at least, I promise!
Hope you all are enjoying the weather!
