Garrett slipped out the back door to go have a snow adventure which gives me a moment to catch up with you here! I have this perfect spot looking out on the backyard to see him dashing back and forth with his Avenger weapons. He is out to win a battle of some sort and it makes me happiest to see him having this kind of fun!
I took a nap this afternoon because my body is spent. All of yesterday I set out to deep clean. Scrubbing tubs, washing the kitchen floor, putting things away, catching up on laundry and right about the time I started to feel accomplished..
Every two days we are having to fold and put this mess back on his shelf. After his dresser broke we decided to move his clothes to the closet shelves. We decided on waiting to buy a dresser until after our move. Why did I think that was a good idea?!
Sometimes it’s best to shut the door and pretend there is no mess. Life with little tornadoes! I mean kids.
I don’t think i’ll ever satisfy this insane pregnancy nesting thing but I’m trying! I am after perfection and that’s impossible.

I actually really look forward to the homework part. It starts my day off with the Lord and i’m learning a lot about David’s life that I didn’t know before.

In another week I might tell you different! I’ve been actively looking for ways to get out of the house because cabin fever does not mix well with little ones. Any ideas are welcome!
I was going through our freezer today and around lunch Garrett and I were sitting on the ground in front of the freezer when I asked what he wanted for lunch. He pointed to the bag of frozen vegetables. He won’t eat meat well but he sure does love fruit and vegetables. It’s always been interesting trying to get him to eat certain things like chicken because I would have to believe someone somewhere is staring at their kid who refuses the carrots. If it’s not one thing it’s another!
Preschool has been wonderful. Seeing Garrett learning and improving certain skills has been exciting. We really enjoy reading the books, the variety of activities, learning new bible stories, memorizing verses, and our book work.
Garrett will start Kindergarten in the fall and as of now I’m not really sure what we’re going to do. It’s hard to say because I’m not sure what kind of school district we’ll live in or where we’ll live even. A few weeks ago I spent a good deal of time researching and figuring out if I could even take on kindergarten at home. I trust the curriculum we’re using (Sonlight) but need to make sure that’s something that I can take on. As a military family moving around every few years I don’t know what God has planned as far as Garrett’s education.
I enjoyed elementary school so much and would love that for Garrett too. I’ve just learned not to force doors closed and be open-minded. All of that to say, even though i’m not sure what will unfold later this year i’ve enjoyed this time with him and will miss it!

At this point I am 32 weeks pregnant!
Each doctor appointment has gone smooth and both her and I are doing really well. I see a group of doctors and each one has been great. I’m nervous about the labor and delivery part but that’s normal!
I’m just incredibly grateful for a healthy pregnancy.
We aren’t setting up a nursery for her until we move and that’s been strange. I’ve tried to be creative with the small space for her in my bedroom. I was thinking of putting up a few decorations but right now it’s mostly baskets scattered around.
In a few weeks i’m going to be going to IF:Gathering at our church. Last year I watched the conference from the comfort of my home but i’m really looking forward to being with other women over that weekend. If you haven’t heard of it go to this website to learn more. Even if you can’t make it to a local gathering I know you’d be encouraged to watch online at home too.
Well I hope you’ve been doing well! Thanks for stopping in to catch up.
Until next time,
