Excuses, excuses . . .


Well, hello there, blog-o-sphere! Nice to see you again! I’m sure you’re wondering what I've been doing with my time.

Let’s see, where do I begin . . .

You know about my book. That's the only thing I've been talking about, albeit infrequently, on this little blog of mine. Someday maybe I'll discuss the emotional toll of watching my "first baby" find wings and go out into the world. At times it's been fun! At others, not so much. It's certainly a learning experience--and one that's helping me grow.

But on to the more important things. In February we pulled Camilla out of her wonderful school because I am an insane mama and didn't realize my philosophy on education until my firstborn was already off to Kindergarten and away from me for eight hours every. single. weekday. So, we're homeschooling. For now. I like it. Today. Most days. But we've had our rough moments, too.

Those rough moments have been at least partially due to said insane mama's pregnancy hormones.
Yes, you heard me. I'm twenty weeks. That's halfway.
Do the math and you'll find my due date is September 11.

This is me at 18.5 weeks, so I'm even bigger now!
It's been a crazy year in the Treat family. When I stepped back to take a breather in December, I didn't realize everything I'd be adding to my plate for 2013. I have so much I want to write about now. 


These last few months have been a difficult season. But in the dark of winter, the greatest growth takes place. And when spring comes, the sun comes out . . . finally! More about that in the days to come.

For now, I'll leave you with photos from our hike yesterday--one of the best things homeschooling has allowed me to do with my children. We found a great spot for water play. These photos don't convey how beautiful it was on this creek. You'll have to trust me. And the look on Adrian's face.

  2. Congratulations! And I applaud your decision to homeschool. We've homeschooled our youngest since the beginning and love the freedom she enjoys from learning about life from simply living it. I know you'll enjoy the journey too.
