Yes...It's me!

My last post is dated April 28th, 2012...I know, I know...I'm glad this blog is not a business or I would be bankrupt! This blog was created so that you might experience my unique lifestyle and my family and friends will feel updated better. Isn't blogging kind of like exercise...the less you do it, the less you want to do it?  What has been happening the last few months, well here goes...

Anna Kate Warnock was born May 24, 2012* We became a family of 6*We took over Lost Valley Ranch* the last 3 months we have been running our busy summer schedule*We had Christmas in July for our staff*My sister and her 4 kids came to stay for a week*Becca started Kindergarten*Will started preschool* I will still homeschool 3 days a week*I had to order and pick out curriculum*last spring, we moved*we watched hours of the Olympics*and after a complete renovation of our lobby, we have started planning renovations for some of our cabins*I have NOT managed to potty train my almost 3 year old and I have NOT been blogging!

The "Visuals"...
Anna Kate is now 3 months old and has been an incredible joy! And, yes those cheeks just keep getting chubbier.

Becca is now officially in Kindergarten! She is enrolled in The Cottage School, so we drive an hour and a half just 2 afternoons a week. It is a school for home schooled kids. They participate in activities such as P.E., art, music, Spanish, and get to have recess. Let's face it, I have no musical ability and I sure don't speak Spanish.

We are homeschooling on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. I am using Sonlight curriculum and loving it! The younger brothers so far are just as involved as their big sister. 

We had an entire week with my sister's family and then had my 2 nieces stay an extra week after my sister had left. It was a ball! 

I can't keep this baby girl from growing...I am just trying to soak up every second with her! I am disappointed in myself, however my family will always come first, the people on this ranch will come next, and this blog takes it's appointed place...this is my attempt to "try again" and with one hand holding my sweet blessing and the other one more successful post complete!
