Catch Up

Fell off the face of the Earth! SPLAT!
...or at least one would think so.  Has it been 2 years since I last posted? It's been a crazy couple of years! That's my defense and I'm sticking to it!

 What have we done in that time?
  • Discovered our oldest son had some serious medical conditions related to a prolonged unknown lactose intolerance.
  • Brought that son home for virtual schooling to allow time to adjust and figure out what worked best for him.
  • Seriously thought younger son had a learning disability only to test him and find he has the aptitude to be an engineer.  That was the quotes from the school staff.  Yep, he's a lil stinker! Someone please tell me how to motivate this kid.
  • Plucked along haphazardly at our debt snowball.
    • Lost traction, fell, scraped our knees and dusted them off several times.
  • Began attending an awesome church in our community.
  • Learned how awesome freezer cooking is for a busy family.
  • Discovered home grown veggies are where it's at.
  • CSAs are a great supplement too.

These are just some of the things that popped in my head in no particular order.  Now that I played catch up we can get down to business.
