So things have been as busy as always since Mom’s passing (my mother in law). Stephen and the rest of us are doing as well as can be expected.
We were at ‘the farm’ on Easter when we found out that night, Mom was in the hospital. We left earlier than planned the next day when we found out how bad she really was. Little Cutie was with us and had a blast. We were able to take my parents to church and they were so happy about that. They enjoyed having LC there too. The goats LOVE her too. 😉 My parents enjoy Justice so we always take him with us.
At the funeral, Little Cutie ‘lost it’ (which led me back into a ‘fit of tears’). She’s been worried about me passing on since. We let her have “camp-ins” the entire week. She’s still a bit clingy with me. Josey loves playing with her. He has no idea how big he is. LOL.
A friend of mine, took some pics of the kids at the local park. We took a few there too but I’ve not uploaded them all yet. Both are growing fast and keep me ultra busy I go all day so I’m hoping to set aside one day in the summer (no tutoring) where I can do crafts, read, etc though I’ve gotten two new kids for summer and two who will add an extra session. Oh, and Little Cutie tested and earned her 7th gup orange belt. So very proud of her.
TBear has been sleeping with/on me for the past month or so. He sleeps better..I don’t but I wouldn’t trade the time with him. He won’t remember sleeping on me but he will remember the feeling of love and safety. He will be a year old in June.
I’ve managed to save enough money for us to go on a Home School Spring Break trip the middle of May. We’ll go back to the closest ocean as that’s what LC wants to do. Since TBear is too small for us to take, his parents will work out ‘off times’ during that week. I’m working on saving money for Stephen’s birthday (May 31st) now.
April was Ankylosing Spondylitis Awareness Month. We had our 2nd annual walk followed by a ‘lunch’ on the 17th (had 30 or so join us), our annual blue shirt day on the 24th and the posters for the poster contest were turned in on the 29th. Waiting for the results from a judge or two. I’m so very grateful that this year I had enough sponsors for a first thru third place prize for adults and kids They are worth $30, $20, and $10. Stephen and I will get a ‘coupon’ or something small for fourth place.
I’m so tired but also so grateful to God. I’ve been able to save money for birthdays, Christmas, Mother’s Day/Father’s Day, trips, and of course pay bills. 😉 So no complaints about that.
Stephen and I are headed for the farm for Mother’s Day. We hope to do the same on Father’s Day. We’ll head home late that night but we’ll be able to take them to church and spend the day with them. It’s important to both of us.
Thank you to all who checked up on us.
