Granny's newest creation

I can't sew... I am always drafting my mom to try things for me and to mend the kids' clothes. Today she presented me with some small newborn inserts or liners for Elias (if that is what we end up making new little one). They are so soft and perfect. They should fit just right in his newborn diapers. Thank you Granny...




Time to leave school..

Headed home...

Yes, they dressed themselves






Sick Jaynie... Well Baby

Jaynie was a little under the weather yesterday and even threw up on me. She spent the day with Granny is all better....

Such sweetness....











New teas and cup....


I have gotten out of the habit of drinking herbal teas like I used to. I came across a great diffusing cup and some loose teas. Yum....

Wednesday service...

Ben, Eliot, Elaina, and Etta joined me at Wednesday service at the mew church we are visiting. It is so close to the house. I was tired and Etta was grumpy but everyone else had a lot of fun. Ben especially enjoyed it. They have a private school. I am exploring sending the kids there if they can get in.  It is not my faith but I do feel comfortable there and they seem to have a very solid professional children's program. I was struggling at my own church. I support UU beliefs but the church itself is not meeting my family's needs. It is a crossroads.

Pregnancy update



Let's see... I have gained about 25 pounds. Baby is between 34 and 36 weeks. I am not dilated at all but I am  75% effaced. That is a bit unusual. Usually with that much effacement there is some dilation. At least Elias is head down but he is no where near engaged. GBS testing next week....

Hmmmm.. a new Church

I am going to visit a church down the road that is within walking distance. We have played on their playground before. They have a small private school. That is the main reason I want to visit. It isn't my fairh but if I feel welcome enough I may consider the school for at least Evan. They are Baptist. That is one of my least favorite Christian denominations but I can try at least. The public school here is such a bad fit for my kids and having to work I can't homeschool the way I want. I feel my hands are tied....

What should we plant?







Eliot brought out some seed packets. Now, what to plant first? Several little kids hovered around to help her choose. It has been really warm lately but I am sure we will have a few more frosts....
