I have been in Yellowstone for the past week having fun with my family!

We were able to see every animal you could possibly see in Yellowstone including a mama bear and her two cubs....which were adorable to look at from the safety of our car :)  Now we are gearing up for another family trip to Canada for a wedding which, when we get back from our vacationing, doesn't leave a lot of time before school starts.  Hence this post for a few fun and easy back to school projects for your little ones....

Hello? Anybody out there?

HELLO?  Is anybody out there? 

Ok so my blogging break took a bit longer (a lot longer) than I anticipated....I have a good excuses....I promise.

So right after the abrupt stopping of my blog my husband had surgery and was down and out for a bit.  After nursing him back to health it was kids, kids, and kids.  So many activities and things happening because of school coming to an end.....and then to top it off

I'm 3 1/2 months pregnant with our 4th!

Pretty surprised if you ask me.  And I must tell you, for the first couple of months of my pregnancies me and the porcelain throne are BEST friends.  I make a visit about 6-7 times a day and lost a lot of weight.  I have been put on two different medications and had IV fluids to help ease the pain.  Nothing helps.  Luckily the 6-7 times a day of puking has lessened to 1 or 2 and I feel myself SLOOOWLY getting back to normal.

So there you go.  My reasons for being such a slacker.  I would like to get back to this blog but I will start off slow....posting once a week.  How does that sound?

Glad to be back!  Hope to hear from some of you soon :)
