Today, I turn 40!  It's funny, I don't feel any different.   People talk about the big 4-0 being a big milestone.  And while it is,  it only makes me realize how FAST life goes by and how I want to do soooo much more!

I know I have been scarce, if you follow this blog at all you will know this is normal for me.  I'm here for awhile and gone for awhile.  Just the way I am.  Busy with life lately!  But then I remember that I do need to be blogging to be able to read and remember this blessed life we are given.   Although, I won't lie, sometimes I do feel like I'm talking to myself, but that's ok.  I do that all the time!

This past summer we decided that we weren't going to send the boys to middle school.  We decided that we are going to homeschool again.  Despite the first day jitters of what did I get myself into!  We are in our own little routine and doing well.  I actually just finished our first quarterly reports and am shocked of all that we have covered, it certainly didn't feel that way until I saw it all down on paper!    The boys are enjoying being home and Madelyn LOVES having her brothers home with her everyday.   And truth be told, I know how quickly these days will go by and before I know it they will be grown and gone.  I'm trying to savor every moment with them.   Today we are doing school and then going to mema's to decorate her house for her.  And then we are going to make a list of ingredients so we can bake this week.  These are the things I love about it.  While it certainly isn't always easy, it's a blessing. 

I was going to leave you with a picture, but I'm apparently out of storage on this blog!  So be back soon hopefully with some Christmas pictures :)
