February was a month packed full of the planned and the unexpected. We have truly been on our toes the entire month. Today I want to share what’s up with the Newman’s, giving you a little peek into our life currently.
What we are eating this week…
This week things aren’t going to be normal with a couple of parties and a Hello Fresh box coming thanks to Amanda! I am so excited for all the yummy food headed my way this week.
Monday: Chili or soup
Tuesday: Emily’s Birthday Meal
Wednesday: Hello Fresh Meal
Thursday: Home group meal
Friday: Hello Fresh Meal
Sunday: Daytona 500 Party
What I’m reminiscing about…
Emily Elizabeth as a sweet, chubby, bald baby. So funny to think that our curly haired bean pole was once chunky and bald. Her 6th birthday has left me with #allthetears.
What I’m loving…
The succulent that sits on my desk and makes me smile every time I look at it. Even better is the fact that I have had it for over a month now and it looks even prettier than the day it arrived. Maybe I finally found a plant that I can actually keep alive?! However, I was pretty tempted to buy some fake plants from IKEA the other day. They have the prettiest fake plants.
What we’ve been up to…
Life has been SO busy lately. Birthday after birthday and event after event. Add in school work, out of town trips, and just keeping up with the stuff around the house. No wonder I have been so tired lately. I am definitely praying that March brings us more down time.
What I’m dreading…
Placement testing week. Every year as a part of our homeschooling I’ve had Marissa tested. This year Emily gets to join the fun too. It isn’t expensive but it does suck up two days of our lives and then I get to fret and worry how they did for 4 weeks. I know, it’s literally just a stupid test. But some of the basic subjects on there can be a huge indicator of where we really are at… and how good of a job I am doing. I think that is what worries me the most. I feel like their success or failure is weighing on my shoulders… and in some ways, it is.
What I’m working on…
Our winter bucket list, future blog posts, some photo challenges for the coming months, planning school curriculum for next year (while trying to stay on top of this year). There is always a long list of things we are working on in the Newman house. I wish I had something fun to write in here instead 🙄 .
Everything I have means nothing
Jesus if You’re not my one thing
Everything I need right now
All I need is You right now
