Once a month update!

Looks like I'm back to once a month blogging. Chuck promises that soon we'll be saved up and both be able to get new IPhones so then I'll be able to update from anywhere! The problem I have is that I don't have much time to spend online and I usually only make it through my email when I have to get onto something else.

We've been really busy lately getting sick, getting better, working on the house, raising a toddler (yes, Ruby is officially a toddler now!) and everything that goes along with having a house, a family and a life. You know what I mean.

The most recent happenings include but are not limited to:
-joining a produce co-op - we love it. The produce is wonderful and it's so nice to pick it up all at once, it saves time and money
-cutting out almost all the corn syrup from our diets, at least Ruby's and my diet, Chuck still likes Dr. Pepper -making yogurt and bread regularly - I just tried this new bread recipe and it was wonderful. I plan to try new recipes often and I'm even going to try making rye bread next week!
-drinking raw milk - we get it through the co-op form a local farmer and all love it. There's a lot of fascinating reading relating to it also
-and of course growing a baby - we find out the gender on Sept. 1st! I'm really excited about it. I think the main reason is that with Ruby I had no idea what to expect about the birth and new that it could be no fun at all so waiting to find out the gender left me with at least one thing to look forward to. This time around I'm so excited to experience giving birth again that I can't wait to find out the gender! That and I would like to be able to plan. I'm very practical after all.

We've got lots of new pictures of Ruby but I can't seem to find any to post right now. Not surprisingly. But we're going to get some "one year" photos taken soon (I hope) and I'll be sure to get a few of those up here.

I've been usuing my onling time to bake more, clean more and even rest more. I enjoy those things much more than sitting at the computer and although I miss reading friends and families blogs I don't miss adding projects to my never ending list of things I'd like to do but probably never will nor do I really need to. I've actually gotten some things done rather than just spending my time starting things! I do, however, have lots of sewing to do for the many (at least 10) upcoming births and don't know when I'll get all of that done. I've got lots of friends and family having babies!

I pray that your lives are filled with joy and good health and you're resting in Lord. Peace is a wonderful thing.

Hey you, sorry but I have to comment on the fact that you have a lot of typos in this blog post. Haha, I know I know, get over it. You are growing a baby. :)

I am so proud of you bug and all your accomplishments. You are so determined and driven to make things better and I admire your ability to get things done! I know you have struggled with starting and never finishing before, but I think God is giving you the knowledge of what is important to finish and that is way cool. Love to you and encouragement to keep making bread (and give me the recipes). :)
