This that and the other....

Well, I must say that I miss being a frequent blogger. (They should come up with frequent blogger miles, hehe). The only reason I have time right now to blog is because the food is not here yet for lunch, and my kiddo's are with the Science lab teacher. Anyway, back on topic.... So my dad is taking a trip up to Canada. He leave on Tuesday, which means nobody to watch Gabby. Great... now I have to find a daycare. I am glad that he is going to Canada, because he is checking out the properties that they are looking at, and the house that Chris and I are looking at... and actually we found another one we like. So, I could put her in daycare for $100 a week... but that is a lot of money! Well, I think the food is here, so I will write more later. Please be praying for us as we make a choice about daycare!

5 1/2 weeks left!

I can't believe how fast the school year is flying by! It seems like just yesterday this school year began! Now, we have a little over 5 weeks left. My kids have finished their math book, will finish their spelling book and science book next week, and the othe subjects are not far behind. If I could, I will be moving them into our second grade books, but for some reason, I can't. I am however pulling things from the net to use with them until the end of school. This means a lot more photo copies, and a lot more time devoted to lesson plans... so blogger world, my entries to this my come a lot less often. I will try to keep up with the pictures... but I don't think there are a whole lot of people the read this anyway :)

Oh, and also, I have taken a second job... it is sort of just extra ours with the school, but it is contract labor. I am teaching an after school computer class. So, I will be picking up Gabby an hour later than I had been.

Well, that is all for this time. Hope all are well.

As requested, Top 10 things I didn't know...

About being a mommy!

Well, since it was requested, I figured I could handle this post... So here it goes...

10. How much money you spend on diapers.
9. How much milk a baby can consume.
8. How much your nipples hurt after nursing (sorry boys).
7. How many different cries she has, and how each one has a different meaning.
6. How she can feel when I am upset.
5. How crazy I go in the baby section of any store.
4. How much computer time I loose (I don't mind though!)
3. How much other people just want to hold her (people I don't even know!)
2. How different she is to me compared to all the children I have ever tended.
1. How much I miss her while I am at work!! (I cry almost every day!)

I am sure as the days go by, the list will get longer, but there is something to get you started!

Well, sorry that I have not been keeping up with the blog, but I have had a lot going on! We are trying to get our plans for moving up north in order, and so my internet time has been simi devoted to that. Plus, having a 6 week old really drains you! She is a super great baby, but it is so hard to put her down! Anyway, there are a few new pictures on the photo's page... Enjoy! New Pictures
