So, I'm sorry to say that I have not read to my children since mid-December when I started to get sick. But our regular mommy reading time has returned every day after lunch. We just finished our first book. The Water Horse by Dick King-Smith is a charming book. We watched the DVD awhile ago, now the girls want to see it again...so I have it on reserve at the library.
It's nice to be getting back to normal around here (if there really is a normal!) We have still not returned to our previous (pre-pregnancy) extra-curricular schedule...and I'm thinking that we won't for a little while still! And I'm ok with that! Dance and karate are still on the back-burner. I think that every other week at the library will be good enough...especially since at least one of the little ones prevents Kessiah and Jenessa from playing on the computers.
The girls ask occasionally when they can do karate again and my standard answer for the past 6 months has been...January. So, hopefully by January I'll be ready to go with that again! We are starting soccer soon (Jenessa has her first practice this week) and all three girls will be playing! Whew, am I ready for 3 soccer games every Saturday!?! Kessiah and Jenessa have also gotten back into gymnastics this month.
