Yes, I am alive and a few of my favs

Ok SORRY for being MIA for SO long! I have been keeping up with my adoption blog a little better and those that read it to know that this has been a very difficult spring waiting to pass court for Micah and Sarah Faith. We are SO close to being through waiting for them to come home! Hopefully they will be here by June!

We have kept up with school and church and life but honestly it has been hard to do much more than keep up with it... and that doesnt make for really great blogging either.

I am beginning to plan school for next year for 4 students and for the first time I will be homeschooling with a baby in the house!
Our summer is also becoming jam packed with fun things to do. Hopefully we will be finished with the school year next Wednesday May 25th..just in time for the homeschool convention!

Now on to some happy things! Here are some of my favorite things this spring....
A new picture of my Ethiopian loves
My three little lights on Easter Sunday
My new favorite Kitchen appliance! Oh my word! We also bought the Ben and Jerry's recipe book and have decided to work our way through the recipes this summer! Love it!

Micah's new backpack...all waiting to be packed for Ethiopia and then for trips to Nana and Gramps house and the cabin! :)
A new Chore chart...notice all 5 of my kids!





Couponing. I am such a newbie! I had only been collecting for two weeks when Harris Teeter ran a week of triples! Oh my! So I woke up early and went with my limit 20 coupns and bought ALL the stuff below! It totals over $65 and I brought it home for $27..not too bad for a first timer!

I love this blog post. I have a counter ice cream maker as well and we love it. I like that you do not have to use ice or rock salt to make the ice cream. I wish I could understand how to do the couponing!

I look forward to your updates on the adoption!

This is my first season as a homeschooling mom to two boys and a baby. Adding a baby to the mix has been interesting to say the least. I feel I am finally getting a handle on things. Praying you find it easier than I did in the beginning.

To those here that Px90 Workout said you have to be in good shape to under take this I would disagree Beats by Dre Earphones. I am 55 years old and it has been forever since I did a push up Beats by Dre. But, I made up my mind I was going to do this and wow P90x Workout. In the first 3 weeks I was probably doing about 50%-75% of the moves. Some were way beyond my ability Px90. Now I am finishing up week 6 and I am 80%-100% with it Beats by Dre Headphones. The increase in strenght and the decrease in body size is more that enough motivation to keep you going. Tony gives three ways to do every exercise on the DVD��s and you can always find a way to get through it if you set your mind to achieve. In six weeks I have gotten to the point where the other night I was doing jumping jacks and my wedding ring flew off. Try it you��ll love it.
