I'm sure it goes without saying that the life of a mother of twelve is busy. So, I guess the title for this post should really be "Life Is Busier Than Usual"!
My two oldest sons were home for nine days! It was wonderful! It was crazy! It was too short! It was so fun and heartwarming to see these grown up sons and hear of their lives at Gleanings. We miss them so much when they are gone! The children still at home just loved having their biggest brothers home! I am so blessed that my children love each other so much and that the older ones always have an open lap, time to play and plenty of hugs for the younger ones.
So, all this awesome family time has kept me happily busy. I have tried to keep up with the new comments left, but haven't replied to all. I do hope to get the next topic going soon. I will be posting about chores for little people. I have the chores post and a few others swirling around in my head and I need to get them typed up before my head explodes! LOL! Don't expect to see it this week, but maybe near the end of next week. I am having surgery on the 28th (lower jaw and TMJ repair) and will be out of commission for 2 weeks. Since all I can do is lay around and heal I am hoping to get the chores posts started.
Also want to thank those of you who have left such encouraging comments about this new blog. When I am having a not so wonderful day it always lifts my heart to read the comments here. I would like to be able to spend more time posting here, but if I did I would be neglecting my primary mission, which is helping my husband and raising my children. When I get a few minutes you'll know it because you'll see a new post from me! LOL!
For now, I am just focusing on getting ready for my surgery (preparing for 6 weeks of not being able to chew food, etc.) which means I need go now and work on lesson plans and such.
