That's only place I know to start.
I have been absent. Way absent. I wish I had capture the memories over the last year but I haven't.
Life happened. Like blur, whirlwind, maybe more like a tornado.
Kids are wonderful. Wonderfully crazy. I can't even lie, they are crazy. Crazily awesome but albeit crazy.
Harper started kindergarten. She got the teacher I prayed and prayed she would get. She loves it and is doing great. Going to 3 schools every morning is a lot, yall. She's 49 inches and 46 lbs.
Campbell started a real pre-school. She loves it. She thinks she's so big. I can't believe she is fixing to be 3! 25 lbs and 36 inches.
Then there is my dear Amos. My boy. My sole little man. I have never met a more cuddly kid. He's slightly obsessed with his mom and dad. Sisters too. He is more obsessed with me bc he still nurses all the time. Shawn says he will be doing it before he goes to prom. This obsession leads him to not like to sleep with anyone but me. He does a long stretch in his crib but when he wakes he sleeps with me. I don't know if he's ever slept through the night. He's awesome though.
We are still living in the mother in law suite at the new house.
When will it be done? We get this a lot. We parted ways with our contractor before he started on the main house. Won't go into here but we did. It was the best decision we have ever made. Doing that allowed us to finish out the whole house for less than his price. We were able to get new bids and actually beat his bids from subs on everything. I can't lie, it's work. Now i see why they charge so much. Shawn and I are constantly doing house stuff but we love it. Well, we did love it. We are ready for this adventure to be over.
I pray we are in by thanksgiving but I don't see that happening. Everything glare longer when you are dealing with this scale.
Why do we need a 9000 square foot house? Why do we need 7 bedrooms? 8 bathrooms? Etc. We hear this everyday. I usually say, we don't. For some reason God thought we did and so we have it. Is that to foster kids one day? Help others? Have all my kids live with me forever?(my dream lol) Have elderly parents live with us? Or just lots of extra storage space maybe . I don't know. Maybe to sell and move to Chester. I don't know. All I know is my family has loved this adventure. We love living in this small little area too. Only thing we would change is Amos having a bedroom. Boy needs some distance from his momma
So here we are. Life is busy. 3 kids keeps us on our toes. We find ourselves staying home more, doing stuff around the house. 3 kids makes it where you either stay home or do stuff all together bc no one can handle 3 kids. We are so close, us 5. I hope it stays this way forever!
