4 Weeks

4 weeks

It's been 4 weeks since I had the baby. It's taken time to get life to a certain kind of normal. I'm sure normal will change a little here and there over the next few months. Beggars can't be choosers. I'll take what I can get. Let's just say I love this little guy more than anything.

Sloan started school on Monday. 5th grade. I can't believe how time has flown. She loves her new school and all of her new teachers. It's fun to watch her grow as a little person. She reads on her own now, without me asking her to. Like I will walk into her room and she's reading. I love that!

Zoe & Aris are adjusting to Sloan being back in school. They miss her when she's not home. At the moment they are both pretty much obsessed with "Spooky Bones". Let me explain. Any dark or scary place that they see out and about (or in our house) now is the home of "Spooky Bones". Skeletons are spooky bones. They also like to run around the house with blankets on their heads saying the spooky bones are going to get us. And if they don't want to help me out, well, they use the excuse that they can't because the spooky bones might get them. Dean and I find it pretty hilarious. I love how they are using their imaginations.

Deans ankle is healing well. He is now in a walking boot and can take the boot off throughout the day to work on moving his foot and ankle. It still hurts him quite a bit but he has been able to go to work for a few days here and there. Now that he has the boot I can't keep him from working around the house. He's out in the yard and working on the garden as much as he is able. We just got our first harvest of squash & he will be planting some more broccoli and lettuce this weekend. I love that he likes gardening so very much.

Me, well I have a whole bunch of ideas cooking in this old noggin of mine. I've been working on setting up my "art nook" as I like to call it. I am now the happy owner of a very nice drafting table. I can't wait to start painting! While my mom was here she bought me a work table from the thrift store. I will be setting that up for all my sewing projects. Things are coming together slowly but surely. I just work on a little each and every day. That's all that I can do right now & I am okay with it. Eventually it will all come together. Also working on opening another etsy shop for all the vintage goodies I find. I have always loved thrifting and this is a fun way to support my habit. Can't wait to share all the new goodies with you soon. Very soon!
