Long Overdue!

So I haven't posted in over 3 months! We've had a lot of changes going on around here and I just haven't found the time!

1. We moved! We found out at the end of the summer that Ruben had gotten orders to a new base so we spent the month of November getting packed, living in temporary lodging, visiting family over the Thanksgiving holiday and staying in temporary lodging again at our new base. Whew!!! Relocating from the east coast to the Midwest has been more difficult on some of the family members than others. I know I, in particular, miss our home and friends on the east coast very much! But we're working hard to meet people and get plugged into the community and it's starting to feel more like home.

2. We're expecting baby #4! We found out at the end of October that we are going to be blessed with another little one next July! The big kids are very excited (Buzz is hoping to finally have a brother) and Ruben and I are thrilled to be the parents of four kiddos (4 has always been the magic number that Ruben has envisioned). So next month we should be finding out if our newest family member is a boy or a girl!

3. We changed curriculum! We started of the year with Adventures in My Father's World. I liked it just fine, the kids liked it just fine but it didn't feel like the best choice for us. So we're back to Five in a Row. We are currently rowing our first title of the year and having a great time! It feels much more relaxed and much more...us!

So, yeah, lots of changes but now that we're settled in to our new house, the holidays are behind us and I'm starting to feel less nauseous, I hope to get back to blogging regularly!
