1.)If anyone of y'all know a good resource for obtaining kefir grains, I'd love to know! Can you leave me a comment?
2.) We have sort of outgrown our 2006 Toyota Sienna and have gone back to a Suburban, which allows for seating 10. We love this Sienna, it is so dependable and has great safety ratings. Ours has been serviced by the dealership, has a bunch of fancy new things like tires (comes with snow tires too!) and new breaks and because we had five or six kids riding in it, we had it detailed by the professionals (no more cheerios under the seat!). If you'd like more info, leave a comment or contact me at the email address at the top of the page and I'll pass your info along to my sweet, car-knowledgeable husband. One thing I respect and love about Sean is that he always makes sure the children and I have a safe vehicle to drive.
3.) The best part about selling the van? I get to purchase a new bed!!!! We've been blessed to only have bought one bed in our marriage but the frame wasn't the best (questionable wood(?) from China) and I am looking forward to upgrading in size and quality and no longer having books holding up one corner of my bed. :)
4.) Working on getting back to a daily schedule for myself and the kids now that we have a newborn and less sleep added to the mix of life. How about you? What planning ahead has helped with a newborn in the home?
