We Now Return to Our Regularly Scheduled Programming

Grandma found a fun hat!
It's amazing the difference that a routine can make in our ability to get things done - and how tough a change can be. We have been seeing that first hand as we attempt to build a new routine in our life with Charlie in school for two weeks now. Our short road trip last weekend didn't do anything to help either.....mess up a little girl's naps for two days, and you pay for it. Almost a week later, we're still paying for it. At least it was worth it. We had a wonderful time with family and friends as we took some time to catch up with friends, exchange Christmas gifts, watch our Packers, and enjoy some delicious food. The only thing that could have made it better would have been more time. There's never enough of it when it comes to good conversations with good people.

Psst. Lemme tell you a secret!
Charlie's classes are going well so far. There are good days and bad of course, but the overall trend is a good one. Keeping the homesteading goals in mind has helped to push through the obstacles that arise.

Lemme get you outta there!
I'm working to reset my daily routine with Charlie's school schedule in mind. It's harder than I had expected, and we're getting there over time. Who could have thought that shifting the main meal to noontime would be such a big deal?

Gretl and the little girl are becoming better friends with every passing day. It won't be long until the jail breaks start. We're going to have to figure out a child safety latch for the kennel door pretty soon.

The only major milestone from the last week has been the very first bruise. With all of the face plants that have been happening, it's really shocking that it didn't happen sooner. It's all a part of process of learning to crawl and explore the world - although it definitely isn't fun for Mama and Daddy.
