Good to be Back

Oh how I have missed blogging! I missed everything about it, and it wasn’t until I took a break that I realized just how special this blog is to me as a spiritual and emotional outlet. So I’m very glad to be back.

Let me catch you up on the HUGE changes in my world that have happened in the past 6 months…

-We have two foster kids that have been with us since June. Miss Priss is 3 and Little Man is 2. And Buggy is 4. For those of you keeping score at home, that means I have a 4, 3, and 2 year old at home. I’m officially insane. But really, I love it. More on them later.

-We bought our first home last month. Our closing date was October 10th. I loved our sweet little rent house, but it was too small for our growing family, and we were eager to become home owners and be licensed for MORE foster kids {I know…I’m insane} and God opened the door for that to happen. So now we’re setting in, and I’m constantly amazed at the fact that we even found and were able to get into this house. God is good!

-I started my Masters of Arts in Counseling in August. So far, so good. The terms are short terms year-round, and I finished up my first term with a 4.0, something I never did in college. So that’s exciting. I’m loving the idea of counseling others and working with children more and more, and I absolutely love the program I’m in.

-I’m juggling homeschooling Buggy with the two littles and moving earlier this fall, which was NOT easy. Things are finally settling down, so I am able to school him more frequently and I’m able to get back to blogging, which I have sincerely missed.

-I have been tackling DIY projects all over the place in our new home, which is so exciting -and exhausting. I’ve waited a long time for a home of my own to design exactly how I want, and I’m really enjoying using my house as a creative pallet to express our family’s vision and priorities.

I’m amazed that even in my hiatus, you guys are still checking in and reading my little ole blog here. It sure is humbling! Thank you for hanging in there with me while I took a much needed break, and thank you for inspiring me to keep going with my writing, which I so dearly love.

More to come!

  1. Congratulations on your foster littles! We have hosted Safe Families kids a few times. I miss it, but we’re full up now, since our adoption of 2 more this summer.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea
    shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to
    tell someone!
