I just haven't felt very "bloggy" lately. I feel like there is nothing going on here that is exciting enough to blog about. I really need a new look for my blog, just not interested in shelling out a whole lot of $$ for one, when the current one serves it's purpose just fine.
I am so thankful spring is here. We have been doing lots of yard work. Mowing (we have almost 2 acres), cleaning out flower beds, getting the vegetable garden ready. I still haven't planted anything yet. I'm waiting another couple weeks. I should have started peas and beans already, I just haven't.
Oh! We are getting milk goats!! I am excited beyond words. We are still working on the fence and other details, so it will probably be a couple weeks yet. I'm reading everything I can on the subject.
Savannah is 11 months old. She is finally starting to sign back to me. Yeah!! It is so sweet. She can sign: milk, eat, bye-bye, and dog. I am so proud. We are making some plans for her birthday party. She turns 1 on May 30th. Where does the time go?
I have started attending births again. (I am a student midwife) In April, I attended 3 in 5 days. Whew! That was a crazy week. I had agreed to attend 3 in the month of April, I didn't know they would all be in the same week. They were beautiful and amazing, just as I remembered. It was quiet the break-in period for Savannah and her new sitter, and her Daddy (whom had never actually stayed with him alone before) We all survived. I don't have any births this month. I do have a whole bunch of prenatals to attend, but I'm taking Savannah with me. My senior midwife is so gracious for allowing me to bring her along. I'm not sure yet what June will bring.
We are officially done with school for the summer. Well, sort of. Books are done, except for math. I plan to do math through the summer, so we don't have to waste so much time reviewing later on... And I plan to enroll Jackson and Austin in a summer reading program at the local library. I am already excited for next school year, I have all sorts of new books, and lessons planned. :)
The kids are already asking (40 times a day) if we can put the pool up. (Nothing too exciting, 4ft deep, 18ft. across inflatable kind) So that may happen this weekend. Who knows... I'm going to the Rensselaer Town-wide Yard Sale. Maybe the pool will be up when I get home? (hint, hint)
Okay, so that should catch you up on what is going on around here.
