A large family, homeschooling, adoption, special needs, whatever strikes my fancy, sort of blog.

Catching Up Again
Now that I'm hanging out in the school room more, I'm bound to be more active blogging.
Grumman, standing atop a twin mattress. Because cats.
He's a psycho kitty, but we love him.
The kids had spirit week. On decades day, Hannah went as a hippy.
And Katie represented the '80s, with her leopard leggings, one of Jack's dress shirts, some jelly bracelets, and a side ponytail.
One of the days was Animal Day.
And one day was red/white/blue day. I bought a red & white raglan at the craft store and let Jack design something to put on it using my Cricut machine. (affiliate link) I love the way it came out!
I'm glad my ironing board cover is the same color as the cat. He loves hanging out there.
Remember Kylie, Zach & Heather's dog that we watched? She had her first heat, so I was asked to make her a couple diapers.
Jack got to go to Lake Tahoe for a couple days with school.
Our first race of 2020. Also, Eli's last race. He's decided he's done. Sad face.
We had littles in the house recently! A friend is undergoing cancer treatment, and several of us took a turn with her children.
Which means that all the little kid stuff was out. Which inspired the not so little kids to play with it, too.
"Feeling cute, might lock your iPad later, IDK."
One of the small fries had an accident, so I put him in my tub and made new underwear and pants for him. I was in such a hurry, I didn't bother to change serger threads from the doggie diapers.
My cute little labels.
And the finished pants. No pockets, due to time.
Eli and Miss Adorable spending every last moment together before he leaves for boot camp.
I'm starting to get away from dressing the girls alike, but did do coordinating outfits for Valentine's Day.
As our family size has dwindled over the years, we've gotten to the point where the old, full size, gas guzzling van is no longer the most appropriate vehicle for us. Meet Matilda. She's my new wheels, and I'm enamored.
Our second race for 2020 was the Undy Run, for the Colorectal Cancer Alliance. Unfortunately, races are being cancelled or postponed left and right now. I was bummed about the Shamrock race, because I had great socks for the event.
But, it's all for the greater good. So, for now, we stay home. When the time comes, and we can race again, we'll appreciate it all the more.
Stay Healthy, friends!
