New Blog

So I started a new blog that is more me. This blog will remain and I will post occasionally, but I needed a place to put personal posts. Ones that didn't have to do with the family, but more my heart. Is my family a part...for sure, but it is about my heart and what God is doing with it. So here is the link

Come over and check it out.

So the question may be, "What are the Atchisons up to these days?" Let me give you a run down.
First we started with laying some tile, but that was only partial for a little while so I decided to paint my kitchen one weekend while Adam, #1, and #2 were on a camping trip. I love the color!
Here is the tile in the living room almost done. (It is now down for the most part) Again, this is a welcome change...Our carpet was very loved by our 4 boys and all the people who come in and out of the house.
In the midst of all that, we needed to have an injury so #3 decided to bonk his head and get three stitches put in. Always fun around here.
While all this was going on we went ahead and put some carpet in our bedrooms as well. This meant that all our stuff was crammed pretty much into one space hence the injury.
This as if we didn't have enough excitement, we added a birthday party for #1 who turned 10! Can't believe it, but we decided to have our first official sleepover party which meant 4 extra boys added to the bunch. LOUD and CRAZY!
Every year on the weekend we celebrate our city has an airshow. It is pretty fun and I was able to take some of the boys with me. I am always amazed at how easy it is to please boys.
Sunday, we rested....Monday I started spring break with #4 being sick. This meant a trip to the doctor with all 4 kiddos (because they wanted to go). I was tired, but we pressed on to the library. After all that #2 participated in a photo shoot for our church. I can't wait to see the pictures this Sunday. Yes, it has been a busy month and I see no slowing down until May.

This week 3.26.12

I am totally stealing this idea from another blog, but that is what us teachers do...beg, borrow, and steal.

What I am reading: Want to be reading Hunger Games, but can't seem to get it. I am currently trying to stay on task with my Bible reading. Ezekiel, Hebrews, Psalms, and Proverbs. I am almost done with reading it all the way through. And of course the millions of blogs I subscribe too, but then never write one of my own.

What I am watching: Psych is what I look forward to every week since Castle is no longer on. Otherwise it is my laundry pile growing bigger and bigger each day.

What I am listening too: Passion's new CD White Flag. Love many of the songs on there.
What I am wearing: Jeans with some comfortable shirt...Too cold to wear skirts to work and then work with kids.

What I am eating: snacky foods...brie cheese, crackers, roasted red pepper, and a few California rolls were my lunch today

What I am enjoying: Listening to my kids play with each other, the fact that I can sleep in tomorrow, and the nice weather

What I am sniffing: the new carpet smell....I love it.

So there is a start to me getting back in the habit of blogging, but I have to go because the peace has ended.

Post Fail

I have tried to no avail to get some of our family pics up from a recent little session we did. My friend, Leah, did a great job of trying to capture our family.  I don't think #2 had a regular face in a single one of them. It reminded me of my brother who had his tongue out in most of our family pictures growing up. Needless to say as I soon as I can I will show the awesome talent of my friend.
