What a busy week! We have had so much happen here in the last week. Daddy took a new job. A better job, but he is now in another state. We hope to be able to follow him shortly, but it is different. We are really thankful for the job change, and thank the Lord for it! And hey, we homeschool, it's not like we are going to have to "change schools" or anything πŸ™‚

Did you see the date today? Yep…May 1! Where is this year going to? I am still a little in shock. I don't feel as though I have accomplished as much as I have wanted to. At least summer is almost here. That is a bonus to look forward too!

Easter weekend was a beautiful weekend! I am so thankful we were blessed with warm sunny weather! We have also been blessed to have daddy home with us this past week! He has taken some time for a stay-cation and we have gotten a lot done! Not only did we get some spring cleaning done, but we were able to go on a field trip to our science museum!

Well, we just needed to have a last go with the winter thing I guess! Snow all day yesterday left us with over a foot of snow! Not to mention the wind and the drifts that come with that πŸ™ Not a happy family here…we were having too much fun outside! Not only that, but daddy got sick…Daddy doesn't get sick, so when he does, he Does! We are trying to help him out, but being stuck inside isn't helping anyone! No worries…by Tuesday we should be back at 70 degrees…yes, that is what I said! I think mother nature has a few issues this year πŸ˜‰

Treating Ear Infections Naturally ~ From Virginia George

Ear infections are nasty! I fell in love with my chiropractor after a double ear infection hit Ray Ray bad! 3 days and better…umm yeah! I really don't like medicine and love to have a list of other options available for when I need them!

We have finally been able to be outside almost everyday this week without fear of it being too cold, too snowy, too rainy or anything that is too "not nice" to be outside! Everybody has been able to concentrate better and sleep comes a little easier these last couple of days. This makes a happier mommy too πŸ™‚

This is my verse this week…my understanding is that April means spring and warm…we had snow Tuesday and now more today… I am just going to trust that the LORD has plans for this weather…that is all I have right now πŸ™‚

Guess what?? Today is the first day of spring…but we have just recently cleaned up after a snow storm. The kids are ok with it for the most part…but we are all ready for the warmer weather. Daddy says this cold and snow is really taking a toll on him with his back surgeries. I don't think anyone else would complain too much πŸ™‚

What do you do when winter seems to drag on? What about those kids who have a few days of beautiful weather, only to have it change 20-30 less the next day? Yeah, I can't wait for the heat to come back…and no, I am not one who later complains about the heat πŸ™‚ During the summer you will hear me say that this is so much better than the cold! But no matter the weather, I thank God for every day that I am here with my family. Life is short and every day is a gift from Him.
