Where I've been

Well it's been over a month since I did a blog post.  Which I guess is the longest I have gone in 16 years.  I had a few people email me to ask if I was okay.  So I thought I would do a little life update! 

The reason I haven't been blogging is I went back to work full time a month ago.  I didn't plan to drop blogging but I just don't have enough hours in the day.  I started work and kids started sports and there is only one night a week that we are home and that's a catch up night.  But I plan to try and update from time to time.  

Work is great! I went back to what I did before I had kids.  It's been 13 years, so I have a bit of a learning curve and I'm trying to re-learn and catch up but the people I work with are awesome and I'm loving being back in an office environment.  It's not been TOO bad so far getting used to working all the time and juggling everything else.  I've just had to let some things slide.  

I think the biggest thing that has had to slide for me is time with friends.  I haven't even seen Laurie for more than about 10 minutes in the last 5 weeks which is so weird.  We barely even find time to talk.  But we are going on vacation together in two weeks and I can't wait! I'm making new friends at church and that's been a blessing.  But I don't have time for coffee dates or walks anymore with friends.  But I hope I can figure that out.  

The kids are doing great with new school years and new schools.  I'm so proud of them.  

Will Holden is playing flag football.  Scott is helping coach.  That is keeping us busy.  And Harper is playing volleyball.  So our Saturdays have been busy with games.  And birthday parties.  We have been to so many parties.  Apparently all our friends were born in September. ha! 

I don't know if you have heard but my hogs are having a REALLY great year! It's been a fun football season so far! 

Our AC went out.  That was fun.  It was 87 in our house for about 4 days.  I was not pleasant.  To put it mildly.  And then we got to buy a new unit for a small fee. ha! ha! UGH.  I'm so thankful to have AC again.  

I went with Susan to a speaking event last Saturday.  It was a lot of fun.  

Hollis went on a field trip.  It was the first one anyone has been on in 2 years.  

The Stamps came to visit last weekend.  We had a lot of fun with them.  We kept them busy but it was a nice weekend.  

I'm helping in preteens on Wed nights and leading a 5th grade girls small group with my sweet friend Crystal.  I'm enjoying that so much.  We are LOVING our new church.  We have jumped all in and it's been amazing.  I've seen so much spiritual growth in my kids but also in myself.  I'm just so grateful that God has led us here and I am so excited any time we get to be at church! 

So that's what we have been up to over the last month!
