I'm Here!

I have been absent lately from blogging as much as I would like to.  I think about it everyday though.  Does that count?

May is always a VERY busy month around here.  We have two family birthdays and Mother's Day.  On top of that we have had some sickness and a myriad of life issues to be settled.  All is good though.

So aside from the above here are some of the things I have been up to:

+Going through a big box of heritage photos and memorabilia from my Grandma's side.  Seriously there are  some in there that are 100 years old.  I am organizing them into a power sort.  Once I am done with that I will be scanning the originals in to make digital storybooks for the family. A huge undertaking and very interesting to say the least.

+Making my first "dry rub" baby back ribs.  They turned out yummy!  Here is the recipe from one of my favorite cooking websites: Baby Back Ribs.

+Taking my boys to play at the park.

+Taking my boys to storytimes at various places.

+Enjoying our home fellowship weekly.

+Bidding farewell to the last MOMS of all Seasons at my church.  The Tea and Raffle went well.

+Attending the CFS Homeschool Expo for two days. It was very encouraging.

+Planning my next crop at the end of the month (the 29th).

+Planning a Creative Memories unit Meeting that I am hosting this month.

+Creating recipe cards in Storybook Creator Plus 3.0 to put into my Picfolio Milestones family recipe book
Here is one of our favorites:

+ Assembling and installing my sons NEW booster seat compliments of my Mother-in-law.

+Teaching Corbin reading and some math.

+Going to Garden Club with my boys.  Corbin gets to Garden with the Grandmas and Grandpas at a senior facility.  He gets to see seeds grow into beautiful vegetables and get to know some sweet elderly people.

+Helping Corbin make a model airplane.

+Making some cards with my cousin Stephanie's AWESOME stamps!
Here is one:

We have been having fun around here.  I have been choosing Joy and enjoying my family and the interests and talents that God has given me.  One thing on my list to do is get back to reading.  I haven't read in a while.  I have a Karen Kingsbury book waiting for me!

What have you been up to?
