Homeschooling and Giveaway

Well, I've posted 4 times in the last year. Surely I'm up for "Pathetic Blog of the Year" award. I probably have about 3 people that still even read this. Oh well. I might actually start blogging more because next month I start a new journey..... homeschooling. My son will be beginning Kindergarten. Hard to believe. Don't they grow so quickly? Speaking of quickly, my baby is now almost 5 months old. It's a little sad.

Even though I haven't been blogging I'm still reading blogs like crazy. I've narrowed down the ones I read and some of my new favorites are about big families. Yep. Because that's what's on my heart. I've realized that even just having 3 children now puts me in a different bracket. It's amazing how many people couldn't believe we were having 3. And I pretty much didn't tell too many people that I'm hoping for several more. Yes, several. :) I have a fixed heart (still thankful for all your prayers) and I plan on putting it to good use, chasing after a houseful of blessings.
Some of my new favorite blogs are (in no particular order) Raising Olives, Smockity Frocks, Raising Arrows, and Life in a Shoe.

One of these blogs, Raising Olives is having a giveaway that I want to win!!! So I'm here to tell you about it and I will begin posting a little more about our homeschool adventures.

This week marks my 7th month after surgery. It's hard to believe. Those first 2 months were so hard. "So hard" is pretty much the understatement of the year. The pain, the needles, the helplessness, the pain, and did I mention the pain. :) I mentioned in this post how I would be thankful when needles hurt again. Well thankful might have been too strong a word but I am happy to say that when I had my lab work done last week wow did that needle hurt. So here I am 7 months later, doing great, pregnant (with my doctor's OK), and so blessed. I've said it before, but I can't say it enough...I am SO thankful for my Great Physician.

Over at Fort Thompson there's something new and fun going on. It's re-posting an old post that you want to share again. In the spirit of my 7th month post-op post, I wanted to share one my hubby put up after my surgery.

Shannon is out of surgery!

Her valve was repaired!

The surgeon said he was able to repair the valve, and that it went well. They will be watching her closely in ICU for the next few hours and days.

No replacement was necessary. What awesome things the Lord Has done! I know Shannon will be happy when she finds out that they were able to repair it instead of replacing it.

More details later.
