Whew! I've been gone a long time

Since I am no longer working behing a computer eight hours a day, I find it hard to sit down and update my blog. Actually I have been a little busy. I took the Praxis II exam for high school math teachers and I have been finishing up my admissions essay. But more importantly, I have been settling in as a stay at home mom. I actually do house work. Imagine that!! I was so spoiled by Scott. But I need to pull my own weight and do stuff so that he wants to keep me around :)

I have Halloween pictures on my facebook account. Unfortunately, after I got the photos uploaded to facebook, but before I got around to uploading them to flicker or to my external hard drive, the device that I use to connect the memory stick to the pc broke so I have to get a new one. It is only $15 a Walmart, it is just a matter of getting over there. The card slot on my pc has been broken for a while and we lost the cord that came with the camera, it is not a typical usb cable. The cost to replace our Sony cord is $80 so I would rather get that other thing. Too bad, our little princess was great!

Penny is doing all kinds of amazing things and I have to say that I love staying home with to be a part of development. She says circle (kirkle lol) and draws a round sort of thing that closely resembles a circle. She started to say "up" on Monday and yesteday I swear she said "yeah." We do a lot of coloring and work with shapes. I sort of dabbled with color recognition, but I don't know if she is ready for that. She does get really engaged with shapes though so I am going to stick witht that.

We hit a museum once sometimes twice a week since we have free admission to practically everywhere. And I still have time set aside for her naps.

It sounds like Miss Penny is progressing very nicely!

I miss being a stay-at-home-mom, but since all my kids are either away at college or living on their own, I can't exactly justify it any more.

How fun for you to be home. Although it really is the hardest job, and I miss my kids from the hospital, I wouldn't change it for the world.
