Life has just been chugging along here, and while I don’t have any huge updates, I thought I’d share some of the little things happening here!
The kids have been playing together really well this week so far, and that’s been awesome. The girls especially are becoming more imaginative in their play, whether it be kittens or babies or adventures in Narnia.
Tad and I have a beautiful new niece who lives half a world away! Nate, Tad’s brother who lives in China, and his wife Xiao Feng, just had a new baby, named Sansa. They are doing well!
Spring is springing
I think spring is beginning to “spring” here, as we have seen some warmer days lately. We had more snow and a cold spell last week, but the weather is on a warming trend now!
I’ve been learning modern Copperplate calligraphy through a course that Tad gave me for Christmas. Some days I get frustrated with myself, but overall I’m seeing progress. I love the personalized feedback that the course provides.
I lead a community ladies’ Bible study that meets twice a month, and we’ve just started studying the book of Esther. It’s an interesting book!
We’ve been blessed to be able to show hospitality a little bit more lately. We took a meal to friends who had a baby, we hosted family for CC’s birthday party, and we had a family from our life group over for dinner last weekend. We’re also looking forward to having some friends stay with us next week!
I’m using a real food meal-planning service to help me get back on track cooking healthy food every night! The plan I’m using is veggie-heavy, which I love, as well as frugal to execute.
One of these weeks I will put together a real pregnancy update post! I’m 14 weeks now and feeling good most days. Baby Apricot is starting to make his or her presence known, and I have a little bump now!
