We have been trying to sell our house and move to a neighboring city. My husband works there, we go to church there, our local homeschool co-op is there, it is more central to my clients, and we are really feeling led to be closer to our church and be more involved. Pray for us. This is proving more difficult than we thought. Long story short- we decided to buy another home before ours sells. We have made offers on 2 different homes and neither one has worked out, but for two different reasons. We are looking again tomorrow in the hopes of finding our future home.
Ethan started 1st grade on August 1st. I really could just go on and on about how much I love homeschooling. We are using A Beka this year and so far, so good.
I started the Stillbirthday SBD Doula training and am currently in week 2. I love this class and am beyond excited to be a trained birth and bereavement doula in 6 more weeks!
I just registered for the Created for Care Conference in March! Eeeek! I'm so excited! I had to stay up way later than I usually do to get registered because it opened at midnight last night and all 900 tickets for the February and March retreats sold out in a record 8 hours!!! I'm going with a dear friend and so excited to make new ones as well!
Ethan joined a homeschool co-op and wants to run cross country and track this year. I'm so happy for him. At night we always talk about our favorite parts of the day. The past two days, he has stated "doing school" was his favorite part :)
I will be going to Denver part of next week and am a little nervous. It's the first time I will be gone overnight from Ellie. I think she will be fine, but I'm having a hard time thinking about it :( It's for work and I get to learn more about I can help adoptive families and I am excited about it, but, I can't pretend like I'm a little sad about being away from my kiddos. Even if it is only for three days.
