Family News

Here is a picture of my baby, Joshua. He turned 4 years old yesterday~!! How is that possible? Here he is during his "schoolwork" while the other kids are doing their work. I just love how he takes his coloring in front of the pellet stove so that he is warm while he is "working"! Of course, this picture was taken about a month ago when it was still really cold. We had a small family party yesterday with cupcakes. And he will be having his Lightning McQueen party on Saturday complete with a Lightning McQueen cake, balloons, and of course ice cream too!
On other family news, I got a part time job yesterday. Unfortunately, my husband's business isn't going as well as they had hoped, and they aren't having a lot of money come in like they were. So I have decided to go back to work per diem at the local nursing home. I will be working day shift every Sunday, and then fill in on night shift during the week as needed. Along with doing some Stamping Classes each month. And my Jewelry Shows that I am really enjoying!! (I had signed up underneath my sister to sell Premier Designs Jewelry while we were on vacation in Florida).
Along with all of this, I still have all 3 of the kids home homeschooling. And we have weekly dance lessons. Plus my oldest son Kyle will be starting baseball again soon. Busy, busy, busy!!!
I'm not sure how long I'll be able to keep up doing all of this, but we'll get through it somehow I suppose, we always do. I don't know how my mother managed to work night shift all of those years while raising 5 of us kids!
Oh, and I am also taking classes online to get my RN degree. As if I needed more stress in my life. Please pray that I survive all of this!!!!!
