The house is clean, the laundry is done, the children are napping -crazy how these QUIET moments are so rare. Hmmmm nice.
Well now on to starting dinner and figuring out a treat for family home evening :)

Man I LOVE a good "before and after" don't you?
Here's a few I've had over the last year...
Just this week
Our yard is on a major slope
AFTER: we've got SO much more room to play!
hopefully our grass will fill in soon!
BEFORE: big brother's tee
AFTER: little sister's dress
BEFORE: old shipping pallet
AFTER: rustic entry way table
And this one I'm SUPER proud of
BEFORE: messy cluttered horrible entryway closet
yep I built that -are you as surprised and impressed as I am??
Thank goodness for a very handy sis and bro-in-law who came to my rescue via FaceTime
Love those Williams's!!
some people have said the pic made it look smaller than it was so here's the
"real-life" application to give you an idea :)
I SO love that there's not shoes, jackets and backpacks all over the floor!
This is what its like to have an Ashtyn...
I mean she's 6, has started Kindergarten, reading and doing math on a 2nd grade level,
makes her own friends, her own songs, and her own games with -you've got it- her own rules.
Her brother's were proficient in using utensils -EXPERTS EVEN!
Food to mouth NO PROBLEM.
Yet this girl eats with her hands and spreads food across the table and floor like a toddler
SHE'S. A. MESS.
A beautiful, excited, smart, loving, creative, bubbly, valiant, funny, energetic, adventurous, mess.
...and I wouldn't trade her for anything.
Wow I still have a blog?? That's crazy!
Life in the Newman household is quiet -for now.
There's always laundry, dishes, and homework to do
bellies to feed, callings to serve in, and faces to kiss.
It's a good life.
I'm so "nervocited" for our upcoming adventures.
When this school year comes to a close
We will begin our new adventure with homeschooling.
I'm not sure whether to call it homeschooling or roam schooling
since it will enable us to travel as a whole family,
I'm excited for the opportunities my children will be able to have.
We're going to Europe for a month while Cole works.
We'll be staying mostly in Belgium
but will be taking fun day/weekend/week long trips
to places like Germany, France, Switzerland, Italy, the U.K., and Ireland.
It's so crazy to think this'll be the first time I've left the continental US and
hadn't even owned a passport -yet all of my children are getting to do it too!
The passports and ticket…
