School has been going well. We've been doing Math at night so that the kids can get a little extra sleep in the morning. That has been working out great. It makes me so thankful for the blessing of home schooling. The older girls would have missed all week of school and been terribly behind. Instead, we work at a slower pace and take naps in the afternoon.
We got outside today for a walk around the block. The fresh air and exercise felt great, but the wind was really blowing. It's supposed to cool off again tomorrow, so we probably won't have the scooters and strollers out again for a while. :-( The big kids have been watching the little kids for a half hour each day this week so that I can walk on the treadmill. They are such a help! Even that little bit of exercise helps to clear my mind and improve my outlook.

I've been spending all my spare time sewing to get ready for the National Hearts at Home Conference in Normal, Illinois. We've got less than three weeks to go and have made great progress, but there's always more to do. The children are looking forward to having some "vacation days" with the grandparents while mom and dad are gone.

Esther is almost weaned and is nursing just in the early morning when she wakes up. I have such mixed feelings about it, but figure it's for the best. We are going to be gone for 4 days and it seems silly to pump while we're gone to keep my supply up. She's 16 months old already and is such a ray of sunshine to the house. She keeps smiles on all of our faces and is really in to puckering up to get kissed...adorable!
I was hoping to put some pictures of the kids up, but can't figure out how to get them off the camera. Oh well, some other time....I need to get sewing! Hope that you're all having a blessed week!
