Well, we started back to school yesterday after the two weeks we took off for our precious new arrival. She is such a sweetheart and every time I hold her I can't believe she is here! I didn't ever think I would even hold her, I was so sure that something was going to go wrong on delivery day and not only was I blessed with holding her, both of our lives were spared and we are now home together with no more complications.
I am slowly regaining strength after the massive blood loss. The doctor did not give me a transfusion since that many time has its downside and resting and building up my own blood is a better option but I sure have felt it! Thankfully I had prepared for the worst and had a whole 6 weeks of meals in the freezer. The children already regularly are in charge of the kitchen, dining room, living room and their bedrooms so the only parts of the house that are suffering are the bathrooms, garage, halls, mudroom, and our master bedroom. Oh well, it will come.
Of course a salesman had to come walk in through the garage this morning and knock on the back door. Why? I'm not sure. Must've known I had piles of laundry all over the floor waiting to wash since the washing machine started leaking badly and I had to stop doing laundry....
Feeling sluggish about getting back to schoolwork. It is definitely a little more trying having so many little ones asking for attention as well as trying to keep the older ones focused. Yesterday we only made it through workbooks and Bible class but today it looks like we'll be able to enjoy our social studies and science classes also.
We are using Beautiful Feet Books for social studies this year and Noeo Science. Loving them! Next year I hope to get the Winter Promise curriculum (www.winterpromise.com) for social studies if we can afford it.... I have most of the curriculum finished for next year and most of the books ordered. Just need to swallow the big Winter Promise package yet :)
Well, the little one is calling to be fed again so I will go!
