I sure hope so. Posts have been extremely sparse to nonexistent around here due to the morning sickness portion of my current pregnancy. But I've missed the little updates to our family record here and my intention is to post more often again. Oh and I had a request for more fun pictures of the kids, too. I can oblige!
Mercy enjoyed this box until she realized she couldn't push herself in it. She's very persuasive. She got all her brothers involved by the end of the evening.
Josiah looks uncertain here...
I'd be concerned too, Jo Baby. She doesn't have a great track record with you, does she?
Look closely at Daniel (the one standing up). He is posing for this picture. Goof.
I like this one of Michael and Mercy. I like how their smiley eyes have the same squinty shape.
Daniel gave a report on circuits and electricity at our homeschool co-op this week. He got himself all dressed up and ready in the morning in his "nice" school clothes. Here he is giving each of his classmates a chance to switch on the light and "complete the circuit" to make the light bulb come on. I'm proud of his ability to speak to his class comfortably. He is required to give a report about 6 times a year at co-op which has given him a great opportunity to practice this skill.
We love our homeschool co-op!
Bob found this on the kids' bedroom door. It says: No one allowed except MichaelDaniel. (With some alternate spellings and the lovely skull and cross bones below...?)
Mercy might be too big now for a sink bath but we do it anyway sometimes.
Now that wasn't too hard to do was it? At 15 weeks, I'm staaaarting to feel better. Blogging is by no means at the top of my list of things that I want to return to doing more often. No. The list is more like this:
-Make dinner more than once or twice a week
-Speak kindly and quietly
-Begin some fun read alouds with the kids in an effort to "do school" again
-Finish the laundry
It's a short list but when it's time to break out of survival mode, its baby steps, right?
Enjoy these silly funinabox pictures!
