Frozen - That's how I feel here at this blog! I guess I match the weather...
Anyway, back to being frozen here at the blog. I have quite a few things I would like to write about - mostly homeschool related - but for some reason I can't get myself to just sit down and write them! For example, what exactly was I doing from All Saints Day until PJ was born? That was a big gap of nothingness at the blog, but it was filled with lots of exciting things in real life. Night Owl can't believe I didn't even post anything about the football team going to the state finals and then winning the championship!
One of the most time consuming things I did was to completely revamp my system for planning for the kid's learning activities. After a panic set in regarding how I was going to do everything when the new baby arrived as well as just get through the last couple of weeks of pregnancy and then Christmas, I went in search of a better, more streamlined way of doing things. I'll be writing about it soon - it's working well. It practically runs itself which is what I needed.
On a not so positive note, Beany, who had been doing so well on a gluten free diet, started to lose weight. This was due to the mistake I made. About 6 months ago he had some gluten and it didn't seem to have any negative effects. We slowly added in more and more until we were back to eating a "regular" diet. I had assumed that he grew out of his gluten sensitivity. Not so! The symptoms just took a while to show and when they did ... they really did! Poor kid. When we realized he had lost nearly 5 pounds we new what the problem was. We are back to a strict gluten free diet for him and he's already starting to gain weight. I would like to write a post to share some of the new resources and recipes I've discovered.
There are also big plans in the works for a summer vacation! Planning a trip out west has us all excited for summer to arrive! I'll be posting about that as it gets closer.
So, not much has been posted lately, but I have alot of posts tucked away in my brain. I just need to get them organized! Maybe if we get a February thaw, my brain will thaw a bit as well. From the looks of things lately though, that might be a while in coming!
