Waiting for Baby

Thursday, May 21st, 2020

End of April: What we do while we wait for baby to come. Grandma came to stay the week before to help out with all the things. Thankfully she was also happy to work with the babies on their math otherwise the 4 youngest did absolutely no schooling. I had no energy to plan, organize and oversee their distance learning. The big girls were able to keep theirs going though. Hopefully this Summer we can beef up a bit on some “school work” before we get back to school…we’ll see.

Living Seasonally

The past couple months have brought several “seasons.” Spring, the final days of waiting for a new baby and now this pandemic season we’ll never forget. It’s made living seasonally very odd. But it’s also exciting to welcome all the changes at once, the familiar and the very unfamiliar.


Strange Spring

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2020

April 15: For a couple days last week Phil took 5 of the babies and headed to Kansas to do some camping. As of that week they still had parks open to overnight campers well, and to the public at all. Nebraska has closed all parks for use due to COVID. He found a very nice place for them to rest and play. While he was gone the rest of us piddled around the parsonage. We had a glorious afternoon so we headed out for a short walk, as much as Mama can handle these days.
