- The Kids
Lincoln started Kindergarten this year and is loving it. He has gone through 3 teachers so far because his actual teacher broke her foot last year and has been in and out having surgeries. I'm okay with that though cause I wasn't a big fan of hers. His teacher right now is GREAT! She's a retired kindergarten teacher and she is so laid back. I have been so concerned over him not being able to reconize his letters out of order, I talked to her about it and her advice to me was "RELAX" she told me that I shouldn't be this worried about it and as long as we are working with him a few minutes at a time through the days (like when we go to the store point to a sign and ask him what the big letter is and things like that) then he will get it and will be reading in no time. It's hard to not be concerned but he is only 5 and most of us weren't learning to read till the end of kindergarten or even 1st grade.
Mia--- Oh what can I say about Mia?! She has finally decided to potty train- although poop is still a struggle. Other than that, she has embraced the troublesome 3's. She is very creative and very loving but watch out if she doesn't get her way. She has an attitude like something I have never seen (other than on TV shows about those little beauty queens and their mamas). It is something we are trying hard to eliminate but it is a slow process. A lot of it seems to stem from her speech issues - which she has started speech therapy in so hopefully soon she will learn how to form some of those sounds that she's having a hard time with and will have an easier time getting us to understand her.
- The Husband
He is now in his last semester of his Master's program. In December he will graduate and be finished with school. He just got his AFAA personal trainer certification so he is now able to go work at a gym or independantly as a personal trainer which will be great for some extra money to help pay for my books and equipment for my midwifery training and career.

- The Craft Table
I have a bunch of paterns to knit and crochet and am hoping to get my act together and get them all done soon. Okay well not soon as in this week but soon as in within the year. I'm also starting some wool soakers for cloth diapering and some cloth diapers.
- The Baby
I'm scared right now that things are going to go wrong and we'll lose this baby too, BUT I know that God is Greater than ALL my fears, and he has promised that those who follow him will not cast their young or be barren and I am going to hold him to that promise (as his word says I can--- ALL God's promises are YES in Christ)
So that is about it I think, I'm sure it wont be too much longer till I write again. I will post before we leave for sure and then I will post after we get there with pics of our new surroundings.
Love you all and thank you for reading
