Busy days- wouldn;t trade it for the world

Since baby has been here I do think I have sat down hardly at all, except maybe while feeding him. lol! I have been super busy since he has been here. We started back school right away due to some of the kiddos do not do well with much of a break. We have had a couple of appts already and I have already taken a shopping trip with all the kids,which was not as bad as I thought it would be. I cannot believe I am a mommy to 6 now!!!!!!! I would not trade my life for anything in this world. And no I do not have loads of patience. That is what I always hear when talking to people is you must have alot of patience and I think to myself why no, it all comes from God. He is the one that helps me through. I love my kids though and would not want to be doing anything else. I was thinking about all of this while doing the devotional book Raising up Madiens with my daughter this morning. I love doing this with her and we are also doing a scrap book to go along with it so it is super fun. I would love to do something like this with my boys although maybe not the scrapbook. Scrapbooks are for the girls to do, in my opinion. My youngest daughter is waiting patiently or not so patiently for us to get done reading it so she can do her own scrapbook. I have been trying to think of some good ,cheap field trips to take them on. Let me know if anyone comes up with anything.
Also if you could say a little prayer for us dh's business has been a bit slow lately. It is sort of scary, alright really scary but I know God will provide. But we are trying to look into buying a house so this is not real good timing. anyway, I know things will work out. I just wanted to update you all while I had a few minutes. I am hoping to get to read some blogs sometime today but I have been trying to get the house organized so I dunno.

I'll be praying about your husband's job.

If you can find a homeschool group that is sort of a la carte (that is, you can choose not to participate in some, only in the things that are beneficial to your kids), then go for it! Especially if there are like-minded moms. Being in a relatively close-knit Christian group enhanced our homeschooling a lot in Georgia. (TCCHE) I simply haven't found a similar one since we moved to VA, though there are groups here. (Hoping finding a church remedies that some.)

Field trips are nice when they are sprinkled in sparingly. I have to avoid the ones that don't accommodate littles, and I have to avoid going out too often during the week at all, or we lack consistency.

Sounds like you are all having fun! Congratulations on the birth of your baby!
