The Daddy at Gilli's school open house
We've been in our new home just over a month now and I am still trying to get a routine going. Everyone is still looking for ways to find their happiness in this place. I have boys playing sports and other boys joining clubs. My oldest has a new job. Meanwhile, I am seriously suffering from library withdrawl (no pun intended) and have returned to working out a new Curves. I'm also the new 4th grade religious ed teacher in our parish! Even Joe is joining the local Rotary Club...we're all settling in.
Curves The local library
I have tried to be a better mommy and go back to baking homemade treats.
The last time I was in Penn Yan at The Once Again Shop I found this old copy of
Better Homes cook book. The sugar cookie recipe turned out PERFECTLY!
I've also been burning up the bread machine. I think I'll find something special to make for breakfast tomorrow...apple bread? Cinnamon maybe???
There is one thing I've noticed lately. The days are literally flying by! I turn around and it's time for the kids to get home from school. Maybe the fullness of my days is why time feels so fleeting. I could tell you what I do all day and you would say, "Well that's not so much", But somehow I'm busy all day long.
I've been prouder of my suppers lately too. I must admit that I have been pretty slack this summer and now I am getting back into the joy of making meals for my family and finding inventive ways to use up leftovers.
It seems so silly, I suppose, but I love it. I love being a SAHM. I think I have the best job in the world and I thank God every day for it.
The very special birthday gift
