Overcoming Postpartum Depression & Living and Loving God's Blessings

Wednesday, September 7, 2011


I have been neglecting my blog lately!  Life is busy... especially in the summer.  I also made a big BIG mistake by my blog. I didn't keep up to date on my e-mail and it expired!  What? I didn't know a website could just expire like that!  Maybe I should open all my e-mails instead of putting them aside for a day when I get time to read them.

Well so far so good this fall. I am happy to say my kids are in school and I am loving a routine again. I am coaching middle school cross country for the first time in my entire life!  I love it. My 7th and 8th graders are amazing.  The first couple days were rough. It was so hot and humid. I heard a lot of complaining. I don't blame them though.  This week is a whole different story. They are really putting forth good effort and I am enjoying it much more.  I am so proud of my kids already and we haven't even had our first meet.

I am a huge believer in sports. I think sports are almost equally important in our children's development. If your kids aren't into sports, clubs or other activities are important as well.

Oh- we have had a few bats in our living room a couple times this summer. There is a lot of screaming going on and my husband thinks he is the bat ninja. I have a really funny video that I posted on facebook awhile back. I think the bat problem has been solved- I hope at least.

My in-laws have finally moved to town!  I am very grateful for that. It is great to have our family so close by.

My little guy is already almost 16 months old! I can't believe it. He is talking- but he still won't call me mamma.  He will say things like, "That's a ball" or "The dogs"  but he doesn't call me mom!  He call's Phill dad, and even a few times he has called me dad. I give up!

Well that is all I really have for now. Hope all is well with all of you!
