SO much has happened since the last time we spoke. We had a baby, I went back to work, we had a girl live with us to take care of HB, I quit work and now I am a stay at home mommy who lives on the road. And last but not least, I am expecting baby number 2 in January!!

This is our little family for HB’s 1st birthday party in Michigan. It was a month early, but he has no clue. LOL. This picture is also the day after we found out we were pregnant again. I am a little disappointed because we got pregnant before I got down to my before baby, baby weight ,but make no mistake we are SUPER excited to expand our family. God has perfect timing and could not care less about the scale.

Can we talk about the scale for a second? So I still nurse HB, that’s right. He has been BFed for almost a year now. It seems that everyone who did not BF is more skinny than ever. They are like small, super small. Here I am BFing for an entire year and am bigger than I have ever been in my life. I am more active than I ever was while working (taking care of just one kid is a lot of work), I am not just sitting at home eating. We are actually eating healthier than we have in the past, but yet again here I am … chubby. It is so frustrating. I am not sure what is going on here but I can tell you I am not thrilled about it. I am still working out and I hope to not gain as much weight during this pregnancy. End of rant.

Hope you are all doing well!

So my parents have been having a wonderful time in FL.  The love thier kids and LOVE living the retired/unretired life.  My mom says “I am finally a stay at home mom” and my dad has kids to pick on.  However it looks like there is a bit of spiritual warfare going on.

The site is a loosely based Christian campus as in the only church on site is of Christian denomination.  The teachers and students are allowed to hold Bible studies together without problem. 

SO things are going good, but there seems to be a gentleman who works with my dad who either really feels my dad is not a “parent” figure or is jealous because the kids like my dad more than him.  My dad is funny, outgoing, and if he catches you doing something wrong, he will let you correct yourself before giving punishment.  My dad has suprised the boys and have done some chores for them once in a while (cleaning the bathroom that all 90 boys use), running a vaccuum at the end of the weekend.  Now my parents did this for my sister and I too.  We never had set chores, but if they asked us to do something we did it, but I would come home to my mom having cleaned my room for me or my dad having done the dishes for me. It is something you do to let others know you appreciate them and just a little boost of something nice.

Well the other guy does not like it and gets upset that my dad is not making the boys responsible and he is ruining their manhood. BLAH BLAH BLAH.

My dad also played a joke on a kid who he is friends with. The kid laughed, my dad laughed and then my dad got in trouble and was told my the administration that if he made one more mistake that he would be let go.  Wait a sec, so it is 2 strikes and your out? And the joke was exactly that, a joke, everyone understood it.

Then after that my parents were asked to no longer hold the Bible study with the teens.  They would find someone else to do the important job.

So now my parents feel like they are on pins and needles, like they can’t make a good choice because everything they choose is wrong.

So that is what is going on in their world.  If you think about them pray for them.

 

Thanks 🙂
