Hello Again

I've stepped away from the blog for awhile. I really can't believe it's been since March that I've been on. I honestly haven't even been reading blogs that much either. It's been a really busy time for us and I think I also lost interest to some extent. A lot has happened with our family in the last few months. The biggest thing being this...

Lincoln James was born on May 24th! 

He is so perfect and by far my easiest baby. It may have something to do with him being the 4th, but seriously though, we are IN LOVE!

His sisters are loving having a baby around.

This summer went by so fast. Every time I have a baby it seems like the first year flies by and this one is no different. We did a lot of swimming and playing in the back yard the last few months. It was a little more challenging having a newborn because it was still too hot for him to be out most of time. But, he also slept most of the time too which helped. I definitely wasn't ready for school to start. I'm still teaching at UCA one day a week and we started another homeschool year. 

So far it's going really well. It's definitely difficult having one in kindergarten, a 3 year old, a 1.5 year old and a 3 month old. But, we have gotten into a good routine.

One of the things that I've really been struggling with is my use of Facebook. I have been playing with the idea of deactivating my account. I like the idea of being disconnected for a time. I still haven't pulled the plug on it because I use it for keeping up with family, church things etc. I feel like all communication within all my groups is done on Facebook. I have so little self control when it comes to getting on and wasting time. If I take it off my phone I still find a way to get on and feel the need to post pictures. 

I'm not sure when it's going to happen, but I feel like it will soon. I plan on staying on Instagram and updating the blog much more frequently than every 6 months!

I'm really looking forward to being around the blog more and getting back into reading some of my favorites. 

Have any of you thought of getting rid of Facebook, or actually been able to do it?


  1. I was very excited to see your blog pop on my google reader! Congrats on the new baby boy! He is a doll.

    I've been tempted to deactivate my Facebook as well for the same reasons. I've been trying to limit myself to once a day log in. It doesn't always work, but it's getting better. Let me know if you find something that works for you.

    1. Well, you have not idea how excited I was to see your comment! It's nice to know people still see the blog :-) I keep thinking I'm going to bite the bullet and do it. Maybe this weekend? After over thinking it I sit down and think how silly it is that Facebook has become such a big part of my life. I'll be sure to let you know if I come up with anything else!

  2. Welcome back to blogging! Welcome to Lincoln, although I'm sure I said that on Instagram too :) I'm glad we're friends on there.

    I have also toyed off and on with deleting my Facebook account. I have been on about once every three to five days lately. But then I feel like I miss a lot because so many of my friends are active on there. One of these days I will probably bite the bullet and just do it.
