Random bits of my life

I really would like to get around to regular blogging again. I so enjoy reading other people's blogs and hope that occasionally someone enjoys mine. I'm not fishing for compliments, just hope it gives someone a smile when they stop by!

I don't know where to start. I have a million things I'd love to write about, but I am not comfortable just jumping right in to them. So many things and so little time.
Amazing that I had so much more time to blog when I had 2 newborn babies or two 1 and 1/2 year olds and a newborn. Now they are all pretty much self sufficient and I get no blogging done.

Today was a pretty good day. Leeland was here which is always fun. 1 1/2 is a great age. He is so smart. I know everyone says that about their kids/family, but he REALLY is! :) He's 1 1/2 going on 5 and sometimes I forget that he really is just a baby. Today he fell asleep in my arms and I took a minute to just enjoy that feeling. I realize how fast my oldest nephew has grown up and I don't want to take this age for granted.

I made homemade egg noodles today. I tried this recipe here. I didn't get them done in time for supper tonight, so we'll probably have chicken and noodles tomorrow night. The noodles are super easy to make. I even used the dough hook on my Kitchen Aid to knead them. I'm going to try freezing some for later use too. I meant to make a batch with basil in them just for fun, but forgot, so maybe tomorrow.

Tyler read me several stories out of a school book today. I am thrilled with that! They are not difficult stories by any means, but any progress excites me! Now to work on the other two.

Tomorrow we go back for another trial run of a local homeschool group. Last week went well. Part of me wants to join. I think it would be a good thing for the boys and for me. Another part of me doesn't want the commitment. It's on Wednesday which is also church night. That makes a long day for all of us! I'm tired just thinking about it!

I should probably go to bed, but I still want to read. I have started so many books that I've lost count. There are not enough hours in the day. Until next time...

I check your blog every day. I love reading your thoughts, it makes me smile just to have a glimpse of what you're thinking/doing that day. :)
Love you!

I haven't been blogging much either, I need to get back to it but with Facebook it seems like no one reads our blogs anymore. I still check them but no one seems to post! I will keep checking and hopefully post more often!!
