Well there's never a dull moment!

Well school started off with a bang and hasn't slowed down yet!!!  A week into our new school year we found out that someone on our first grade team would need to move to another school and we had about three hours to let them know who would be volunteering.  Long story short, I decided that it would be best for my team and my family, if I was the one that went, so I volunteered.  To say life has been crazy would be an understatement!  I was really worried about it being hard on Chase since he has been at our school most of his elementary career, but it turns out that having grown up in our small town and having a mommy that's a teacher, my kids really do know half of the population have had not one single issue with the move!  They LOVE our new school and are thrilled to be there.  That was a huge relief for me because I have cried lots and lots of tears over this.  I am doing well, but starting over again a week and half into the new year, having to set up a new room (still first grade), and trying to get caught up has been rough.  I'm quite exhausted and missing my team/friends terribly, but I know it will be OK once I get my feet under me!  Baby steps, baby steps.

Baseball season is about to start and Chase is also wanting to embark on basketball.  Emery is busy with dance and gymnastics.  She is counting down to her birthday and can't wait for her party to get here.  I can't believe how big they are getting.  I need time to slow down just a tad!

We are 14 weeks today, hello 2nd trimester!  We had an ultrasound last week and the kids got to go (we told Emery over the weekend and she is beyond excited), I think they were happy to know that there is a baby in there.  I am now on monthly appointments which is a big change from our weekly ones!  Baby looked perfect and measured right on schedule!

Hope everyone else is having a great month, we are looking forward to the cold front and the weekend, neither can come soon enough!

****I am grateful for
1) smooth transitions for my kiddos
2) cold fronts
3) weekends and turning off the alarm
4) good appointments for our Lucky Charm!
