When life gets crazy!

Sometimes when life gets crazy it is just that, crazy,  and there is no way around it and you just have to make it through.  This was the past 10 months of my life.  We got pregnant it was an emotionally and physically strenuous pregnancy for me.  We made it through and have a beautiful baby to show for it.  He is healthy which was everything we had prayed for and he is a miracle which is what we needed.  I made it through the year with the Bigs in their 5 day a week public charter school and I homeschooled the kindergartner and tot-schooled the 3 year old.  I also took on a job as a nanny for 5 months to a newborn baby girl (that was a little crazy, but I loved it ).  But here we are on the other side with a brand new baby and the Bigs are back in school and the littles are waiting for mom to recover.  I get another week.  We decided to try a homeschooling charter this year with our now 1st grader and he will be attending classes twice a week all day on Tuesdays and Thursdays and I will only be teaching Math and ELA while the other subjects will be covered at school aside from projects he will be doing at home for the classes.  My preschooler will also be at preschool twice a week for his obligatory 1 year away from the mama to learn how to be friendly, sit quietly, stand in a line and listen to someone else.  He will then be homeschooled for Kindergarten next year. I have decided to keep up with my blogs this year because I fear I will not remember this year if I fail to document it while it is happening.  I am embarking on life with 5 boys, 3 will be playing sports this year and four will be in "school".  I am excited and worried, maybe terrified a little but, I'm up for the challenge! So, if you follow my blog let me know and hold me accountable to update it!  I'll need all the cheering on I can get!
