Our Life - Janurary 2017 | Fort Leonard Wood Family Photographer

Instead of continuing with the P52 theme from last year, I'll just be posting some personal favorites from time to time. Hopefully 2-3 times a month, depending on how busy and crazy things are. I'm also looking to start including DIY projects, favorite recipes, fitness tips - general mom blog stuff!

So far, 2017 has been good to us. My husband has started interning at his new job and LOVES it so far. Nora is still doing excellent in school, and Nathan's Pre-K assessment went well, as expected. They did want to evaluate him again for speech therapy. I have mixed feelings about this, since we did it before and he was just "going at his own pace." He has a great vocabulary and talks our heads off, he just has a bit of an impediment (maybe?). I know it can't hurt him, so we will see what they say and go from there.

I have a fun photography announcement coming up soon! Learning this area's market and figuring out the logistics for working after the baby is born have been a little bit of a struggle, so I'm implementing new changes and offerings. Stay tuned!

It's only really snowed twice this winter, but this week we got to see an ice-storm first hand. I guess instead of snow, it rains and then freezes when it hits the ground. Everything has icicles hanging and the plants are encased in a glass-like layer of ice. It's really quite beautiful, although the big dead tree in my front yard is loosing a few limbs due to the weight of the ice. Luckily it isn't over our cars or home, so we don't have to worry too much.

This past week we were invited along with one of Charlie's work trips to Old Kinderhook resort, and got to ice skate and enjoy fire pits and smores! It's a little funny- Charlie promised me an ice skating date (I've never been, despite growing up in the Midwest) 6 years ago when we started seeing each other. FINALLY he get's to make good on his promise, but the catch? I'm 34 weeks pregnant hah! No ice skating for me. The kids had a blast though, and it was fun seeing him drive the bus there and back.

See you next time, and stay warm!
