Things seem to be changing a bit in our house this term.

Joseph is starting to be happier without been held by me for long periods. I have two spare hands much more often now than I have in the past. He is also crawling around a lot and exploring the house more.

The day seems to run more smoothly since we don't have a middle of the day kindy pick up to do. I feel like we have more time to get things done.

These two little changes have made my life much easier. I am feeling more relaxed and getting a lot more done than I was for the past 7 months or so since Joseph was born.

We have started getting meals in the freezer again and I have started making summer sewing plans and Christmas plans.

I think I should be able to update my blog more often too.

I have lots of ideas for blog posts and what I want to share on here.

I am hoping the children's blogs will be updated more often too. Last term when I felt like there was too many things to do, I had to reassess and prioritise what was really important for the children's learning. Blog posting didn't make the list but I think this term we should be able to get them updated more.

Here is a cute photo of Joseph after a feed of my home made spaghetti which he really really loved.

Loved this picture of Joseph! He certainly enjoyed the meal by the looks of it. He is so cute. I also watched the pump change by Tom. I am always amazed by the resiliency of children. Tom shows us all what fortitude and a happy attitude look like. God bless him. I continue to pray for a cure.

How do you store your freezer meals? I started to do this, but ran out of dishes. :)

I bought a heap of plastic freezer containers to keep all my meals in.

The other thing that some people do is line their casserole dishes with alfoil, freeze the meal and then take it out of the dish. When you need to eat it, you can pull the meal out and put it straight in the casserole dish.

We'll be here when you get back.

Interested in your thoughts about Mary McKillop, as my Catholic pal, when you get around to writing, my friend.

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
