I'm still here!

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. I took time off to celebrate my birthday (Happy Birthday to me!) and enjoy time with my parents, who I don't get to see nearly as often as I'd like to.... the hazards of living 10+ hours away.

I am now finishing up the project most pressing at the moment -- submitting my children's final grades to our accountability group... which I am NOT happy with at the moment (the group, that is, not my children's grades, which are just fine!)

So, I will leave you with a "Grace-ism" (that's the sweet little girl in the picture above)

Me: [in my best cheerleader voice] Alright, everyone! Let's get this house straightened up before Grandma and Papa get here! We can do this quickly, right?

Grace: {very enthusiastically] You're right, Mommy!!!!

Me: [humbled and pleased] Wow, sweetie! Thank you so much for that encouragement!

Grace: [sounding like a bored 30-yr old] Well, it seemed like you needed that.

Have a great week, everyone! Hope to come back to blogging soon!

He's doing great! Thank you for asking! I think he's up to... um... about 22 lbs or so. He's HUGE!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me comments... you're usually the only one! *grin* Thanks for making me feel liked and listened to!

Nah I'm not the only one! I love to read your blog cause I want to be like you someday ;)

22 lbs! good job mama! I'm excited to see what Leo weighs in a few weeks when he goes for his 6 months. He's getting chunky and has a nice double chin going.
