Enjoying Summer

I have been quite busy for the last few months. I have two more amazing kids living with me. They have been here since February. There is a boy who is 7 and a little girl that just turned. I can't say that things have been exactly easy. In the beginning I had my doubt about what I had gotten myself into.

John has even left the food business and found a job where he can be home more. He now has nights, weekends and holidays off. I don't know what to do with myself, I am so happy. He even has the option to work from home on some days. I get nothing done, but that is ok.

We have already been able to go on two camping trips. I will start planning the next one in the next week or so. Everyone in the family enjoys that. John and the kids have taken to fishing this year. It is fun hearing those stories when they get back.

We haven't had any formal school since the end of May. Once, public school had let out for the summer, I knew it was useless. We had already reached the required minimum by then, so it was ok. We have been able to do a lot of reading and the boys have worked on some math. My oldest, Jonaya, is taking a marine biology course through currclick. She is enjoying that, but it is almost over. She also has a couple more weeks of small group at church on Wednesday.

That is all that has been new with us. I spend most of my time managing four kids and driving them to appointments. I wouldn't change it for the world, though. I love it.

I hope everything is going well in your lives and you are enjoying your summer, like I am.
