I hope everyone is enjoying their new year. I know I am.
We took down all our Christmas decorations so we could get our living room back for our grandkids. 😁
January has brought about changes for us. First, new semester in school for Dallas which he is loving by the way. He has drivers Ed for which I’m excited and relieved. And he has Welding and FFA classes. He is enjoying these classes very much. He is going to check on the skills team in FFA where he will be in cattle and soil judging. I’m relieved he is taking drivers Ed. I’m relieved because it’s been a little harder to teach him to drive because he didn’t get to grow up driving things like Dakota did on the farm. He grew up driving things with handle bars. 😐 The concept of a round steering wheel was akward for him. Plus, he never showed an interest in learning so we waited until he was ready. Months ago I started out small then worked our way up to back roads. I felt uncomfortable getting him in town around heavy traffic. I did want to take him to get his permit so when he started drivers Ed he would have it. I made him take the practice tests 3 or 4 times online to understand some things. Then I took him to get his permit which he only missed 4 questions. Now that drivers Ed has started he’s got to drive once already in town to which I am relieved. The drivers Ed vehicle has more safety features on it than standard vehicles like, the extra brake on the passengers side. 🙂 He said he did good and obviously he did, they are still alive. Lol. I will let him drive a few more times in class for him to get comfortable and not stressed, then I will take him out. I am highly adamant about wanting my kids to be safe drivers. I see so many kids today being irresponsible and do not know the rules of the road. I sometimes wonder where they get their license. But that’s another story.
Jossie has started her new semester in college so I have the girls more. She has gotten depressed a few times because she is trying to work too and is away from the girls alot during the week. She is a good mom and doesn’t want to be away from them. She is determined to hang in there though. We will all make it.
We have fun everyday. We play, bake, and have tea parties and my favorite, naps. Lol. I have the best taste testers ever.
Some days are better than others. Some days we’re grumpy and don’t see eye to eye. Lol. But we’re making memories.
Caroline is 5mths old today. She is learning so much from sissy. She loves bananas, carrots, and green beans. She loves to be sung to and played with. However, she does not like chaos, loud noises or alot of heavy stimulation. She is growing like a weed.
The days that I don’t have them is the days I try to get stuff done on my bucket list. I cleaned out and organized one of our buildings yesterday. I froze my tooshie off though.
We have had some crazy weather here. TN can have all four seasons in one week. Go figure.
I’m holding down the fort here while dear hubby had to go to LA. He really was trying to avoid this but God had other plans.
Before he left we were able to move and prune some of our rose bushes. It was time to.
He is hoping he will be here more this summer.
I haven’t had a chance to play around with my ravioli maker yet but I will. I have however been playing around with my pressure cooker to see how many things I can cook at onetime. I have had to tweek and play but when I figure some things out I will let you know.
Well, I’ve got some things to do while I don’t have the girls. Hope everyone enjoys their day.
