January Update #1

Goodness, it's been awhile since my last post! I've missed blogging and sharing our lives this past month.  It's hard to believe we've only been home three weeks! We've fit so much into that time.  That first week home we got some organization projects completed that had been lingering. The best part is that I now have more room for my TotSchool supplies!  Here's my closet almost entirely dedicated to his TotSchool - there's more room to the left and another shelf up top and room below the last shelf. YEA!

Then last week my Mom came for a visit. It's always fun when she's here. The kids absolutely adore her and she spends tons of time with them. Her visit was great timing because Rick was traveling and it rained the ENTIRE week. It was nice for all of us to have the company! For several weeks last year she was in India training their offshore staff, so she brought us some treasures from there. She brought Turbo some instruments made from wood and reeds. They are lovely and absolutely treasured by my musical boy.  There were gifts for all of us that are just lovely and very 'India'. We are so grateful for all she did to buy and bring them to us!!  She's going back again in March, so it will be a few months until we see her again.

This week we're undertaking potty training. YEP! Starting tomorrow Turbo will be in underware!  Rick and I are both excited and nervous about it.  The timing is really perfect since with Sweet Pea's nap and Turbo's rest schedule, we're home most of the day anyway. Plus Rick's parents will be here part of each week in February and the extra attention and time for Turbo will really help with the training.  I'll be posting every day with our progress, more about the 'method' we're planning to use and how it evolves over the first few days. Stay Tuned & wish us luck!!
