The hardest thing about not blogging for so long and actually keeps me from blogging, is that I have so much I need to write about.  It gets overwhelming.  But I will take a deep breathe, in through my nose, out through my mouth

Right now, Randy and I are in bed watching The Voice.  He's eating ice cream while I blog.  What I love about us is that we just laughed (I laughed until I cried) about something so silly...I was staring at him thinking about what I was going to blog and he caught me staring and was taken aback thinking I did something to his ice cream.  So that probably isn't funny to anyone else but we just cracked up for a few minutes.  So yeah...what was I saying?

This past weekend, Randy was pretty sick with a virus.  Like contagious (higher fever for 2+ days) and self quarantined himself to the basement.  This virus struck earlier in the week with May and hit Lily but not as hard.   It was a hard weekend with May being 18 months old (which I know because she was being such a pill for days-yes she was sick-but this went on for longer than her sickness, and because my kids don't hit age 2 and turn terrible, they like to hit that milestone early at 18 months!) and Randy being out sick.  But it's Monday and we all survived and Randy is better!  He's even eating ice cream. Haha.

Henry received his birthday present from Grandma Sherry in the mail.  A brand new scooter.  He's pretty excited.  So is the 18 month old.  Can't wait until she tries riding it outside on the sloped driveway.  Uh huh.

Lily is the homework champ.  She has until every Friday to complete a 1 page worksheet and practice her spelling words but she does them immediately after school on Monday.  Since I am a HUGE procrastinator, I am in awe.

After school, Harrison read me his literacy library books, did his homework and tried out a new math website on the "big computer." And before May's bedtime I planned to read a few Dr. Suess books since it's Dr. Suess week, but Harrison requested to read them.  Yay!!  Love his interest in reading.  He's really improved this year and went up a few levels just from December.  Happy! Happy!  Happy!

And now, we have a quiet house.  Everyone is asleep.  Maybe not Lily.  She likes to read for a very long time before bed.  Sometimes I feel like I should make her stop reading to get to sleep but that seems wrong.  Occasionally if shes reading an really great book she'll come into my room and have to tell us about it.  Then we might suggest she get to bed and continue reading tomorrow.  But again, love when my kids love to read.

So I'm outta here.  Hope to blog again soon!!

Hooray for a reader that tells me when my long-absent friends are back online!

I was just thinking of your blog the other day and wondering whether you'd given it up for good. I'm glad to see you have not.
